The damp bottoms is mostly because of wicking moisture from the bottom edge of the over pants. Tucking your regular pants into the boots first will probably stop most of that.
I've worn them now down to 34 degrees. For my tastes they're warm enough, but I tend to prefer working on the bike in the summer's heat over being cold, and riding in the winter over summer's inescapable I don't mind a bit of a chill. I've got a full leather snow suit I put together two winters ago, I'll generally throw that on if it's below 25-30 degrees out, and honestly that is probably my favorite riding all year--the suit keeps you just warm enough, and just by chance I get this lucky breeze that runs up the legs and through the suit, perfect climate control. ...And your'e right about the wicking, we had rain all week here, but with the pant legs tucked in I stayed good and dry.
