Where have these been all my life!? Another excellent product from ORNOT! I often have problems with warmers falling down on my legs below my bib leg grippers - not an issue here as they go up nice and high. As well, the trick is to pull up the ankle area once you get them on so the ankle isn't pulling down on the legging, if you know what I mean. These are perfectly cut and do not bunch up behind your knee. And they are also not too tight on the knee - an issue I have had with other brands/materials. I think the magic here is the length of these, how stretchy they are, and how they are knit to match a bending leg. Really delighted by this purchase! I was on the fence for weeks over whether to buy these and once I did my 1st ride in them just thought I was a ***** for waiting as long as I did! I would 100% recommend these - they are AMAZING! BTW I am 5'7" and ~142 lbs and the small/medium fit just right.
Finally a well designed and fabricated warmer that does it's job without extra bulk and discomfort! I have been recommending these to all my cycling friends. Please make an arm warmer as well!
I've used these a few times now and I can tell the elasticity is not going to last. In fact, the first day i received them I put one of the leggings on for a few minutes, and it was already stretched out - During my second or third ride I could feel them sliding down, and i was still warming up. If i put them early in the morning and i'm just walking around the house, they will slide down before i even start my ride. Now i make sure to wear them with a newer pair of bibs, to help keep the leggings in place, but i still need to re-adjust during the ride. It makes me curious how much testing was involved, if any at all However, once on they are very nice and breathable, the material is really soft and comfortable
Hi Ed, Sorry to hear that you are having issues with these leg warmers. I can verify that we tested these for quite a while between each prototype. One thing that we recommend is making sure that the leg warmers are worked up all of the way. Sometimes if you just stretch them vertically from the bottom, the knee can stay a bit "low" and because these have so much stretch, while you ride they will "unstretch" a bit. So, try getting the knee positioned correctly and see how that goes. Thx!
Great blend of durability, comfort, and warmth!
