    by fromPoor fit After purchasing this product to use in my early spring rides with temps down to 30 and constant wind I was happy with the warmth they provided but the poor fit made my first ride in these tights less than enjoyable. The length is great and waist is good however the tights tend to slide down during the ride so you are no longer sitting square on the chamois. This caused rubbing and chafing enough that I was not pleased with the product at all.

    by fromNot Thrilled with Them Sags in the front and I had to roll them up to prevent them from sagging. They also allow air to enter between the waist and groin area. Extra thermal material is needed is this area. These tights would be great for mid-spring and/or mid-fall when the temperatures are around 50 or so, but I found them to be cold on days where the temperature is less than 45. I would return them if I had not already washed and worn them. I definitely would not buy them again.

    by fromGreat for what they are They are great pants, but I feel myself having to pull up on them. They seem to fit fine. Next size down was too small. Think I am going to give Bibs a try.

    by fromSo far so good Great so far. We shall see how the seams and padding hold up over a few dozen rides.

    by fromNoob Review Bought these to be able to ride in the cold. Was completely fine at 45° for an hour and could have continued riding. Wet and misty they did not get wet. I am 5'9" at 240 fit well on the XL. I was very please at the performance of the pants. I hope they hold up well. Con: I have the pearl shorts and seems like the padding is a bit less maybe? maybe it is just thatI hadn't ridden in months and have gained 30 pounds. All in all, glad I bought them, they worked as intended and now I can enjoy my rides in the cold and wet days.

    by fromNever cold while biking again! I bought these to keep me warm on my 18 mi rt commute during LA winters. The sizing is perfect (bought a medium; I'm 6'3" and 190 lbs). Riding in the rain isn't a problem as the tights dry quickly, and keep me warm when wet. The padding works well also to make for a comfortable ride. I left the house a few days during a particularly cold spell (38°F) and was plenty warm with these tights. I ride with them everyday when it's below 60°F. Comfortable, functional, and very warm. I would definitely buy them again.

    by fromGood purchase!! I am 25 yrs, 6'-4" 190lbs; these tights were purchased for my early morning commuting to work in auburn ca with lowest temps in 20-30's. They made a wonderful difference in commuting and I actually found them very comfortable for long bike rides in temps as high as 70. Last night used them on on a MTb ride in the evening and I was a little warm but the tights breathe so well and are so comfortable I didn't mind. They add warmth but are not true winter tights; good for 3 season use. Only issue is they fit better for shorter people, I purchased a medium and the legs are a bit short and the waist is fine. They stretch so well that it isn't much of an issue.
