Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these tights! I received these as a Christmas present and then went back and bought the other color as well. They are absolutely perfect for chilly biking days when you don't want to freeze or overheat or think about either of these things. I wore mine biking into a yoga class and I just wore them to do yoga in too. They are not padded or cushy in any way-just cool weather leggings that happen to be my favorite REI purchase to date. Now I'm looking at this brand of bicycle since I'm so impressed with their leggings...I am 5'8", 145 lbs and the medium was perfect (these are high-waisted so you don't have to tug or suck anything in!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tights, back zipper iffy Tights are very comfortable while riding, do need to use a chamois undergarment as there is no chamois, but range of motion was great on a hilly, windy ride. I like that they are not too low cut at the waist, mine came up just a bit higher than the photo, comfortable, and modest even if my jersey pulled up a bit while I got things out of the pockets. Length of medium tights was great for my 5'8" height. The zipper is a good feature, but it's right on the back of the leg, so when I'd squat down to pull a twig out of the chain the zipper dug into my ankle. No issues while riding, but I think I like side zippers better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible fit Worst fitting tights ever. Runs large with ridiculously long front rise and completely out of whack waist measurement. The net effect is if you seat the waistband at your natural waist the crotch is dragging low several inches below your actual crotch. If you pull the tights up so that the crotch sits in the right place the waistband could practically be a bra. On top of that the waist is inches too large. Leg opening has rubber gripped and a zip but neither are useful because the bottom leg opening flares out allowing wind to fly up your leg. You have to tuck your tight bottoms into long socks. Stick with another brand. Worn these out for 60-90 minute rides a few times in the 40's-brushed interior is adequate enough to keep warm (I don't ride faster than 20mph ). But due to the terrible fit won't wear these again. Will probably try to return them. No excuse for such an awful fit. What's also awful is REI's selection of women's cycling apparel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Novara Thermal Bike Tights - not for biking! These are nice tights, but they are NOT for biking. There's no padding in them! I would not have ordered this product if I had known they are just regular old tights. Did I not read the description correctly or was it deceptive? When I think of BIKE tights, I think of something with good padding in the crotch. These have nothing - ouch! BTW, I have other Novara bike products and they are great for biking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great cycling tights! I ride a recumbent road trike, which exposes me to all elements. These compression, unpadded, winter tights are great for N Ca weather - 50s cycling on misty, foggy days - great price, great fit, warm & comfy!
