Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Thermal Capris/Knickers The thermal capris were perfect for Fall riding in temps of low 40s (morning) to upward of 75 degrees on a partly sunny day. They kept my legs warm during two long, windy and rainy rides where the temp changed 30 degrees without becoming too hot. The knickers dried quickly when the rain let up and wicked moisture so that I never felt damp. The best feature is that the waist is contoured so that the front of the waistline sits below my belly button and didn't dig into my waist. I have this problem with other bike shorts. Also the lower waist made it easier on my asthma since I didn't feel any restriction when taking deep breaths. The length was perfect, hitting at mid calf, even for my tall stature. The chamois kept me comfortable on a 60 mile ride with the use of a chamois cream and without any cream on shorter 20-30 mile rides. The rear of the shorts came up high enough without any worry of it slipping down. I'm 6'0" and 185 lbs and the XL fits me perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and durable Only wore the tights once becauseI had bike accident and I'm still On the couch. I went down hard, tore a hole in my shoes and broke bones but amazingly the tights didn't show any sign of trauma...surgeon said I'd have to put them away for at least 3months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wore them yesterday The waist in the small was too small, so I bought the larger size. I would like a draw string in them. I am a seamstress, so I will add one. On the other hand they did not fall down when riding. I am short so the 3/4 length is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Capris I have two pair of the 9" length shorts that work perfectly so purchased these for cooler weather.mthe fit, padding, and comfort for longer rides are awesome, no rubbing or chafing with these. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cycling Tights I love the way they feel to the touch, how they fit, like a glove, They're soft, and warm, and the chamois allows a very comfortable bike ride, even after many miles. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Great materials and workmanship as usual from Pearl Izumi. My wife likes wearing these. She tried on a few others which were a bit cheaper but not nearly as nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great fit, quality & warmth Best cycling capris I've found for flattering fit and function. Just wish they were wind-resistant to enhance warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and warm. Good length as I am 5'2" Your prices are a little high, but the quality is always good. I usually only buy when there is a sale.
