Yes, they work. I used to use a set of off-brand Carhartts coveralls as cold-weather riding gear and they were pretty effective, but a bit bulky to stow when not in use.
No, they're not better than armored pants with an insulated liner as motorcycle gear (which are, I should note, also a bit bulky to stow when not in use).
If you have a 650, you've got enough spare electrical power to run a heated suit. They work even better, and are much easier to fit under the seat when you're not using them. Not an inexpensive alternative, though -- and obviously, won't keep you warm when you're away from the bike.
Not all who wander lack GPS.
