Love the thermal lining because it keeps me warm in the wee hours of the morning when the sun is barely rising and it’s bone chilling cold. But most of all, love that there is enough padding in the chamois to keep those sensitive areas from getting sore/numb on long rides of 3+ hours.
I love these tights. I use to prefer to just wear a leg warmer with a thermal bib but these have completely changed my opinion on that. Even when starting out a long ride with an hour+ climb and accumulating some sweat, these bibs dry out so quick that you aren't freezing the whole way down on the descent. Incredibly comfortable and don't feel restricting at all. Definitely would recommend and buy again if i decide to pick up a second pair. I'm 5'8/130 lbs and ordered a small.
First pair of winter riding tights and pleasantly surprised! These are SO MUCH better than pairing leg warmers with short bibs. I'd been holding out for so long because I wasn't sure how often I'd actually wear/need tights for the full ride, but happy to report I've worn these for all sorts of rides -- pre-work 20 mile spin, post-work 30 mile stress reliever, and the endurance weekend rides. The chamois is comfortable, the material is quality, and I get compliments from fellow riders. What's not to like? This is also my first Ornot purchase and I'll certainly be coming back for future purchases. Buy these tights and your legs will never be cold again...Ornot.
Comfortable, warm, and flattering!
