I haven't had a chance to get much use out of these yet, but from a fit standpoint I think they are great! I am about 5'11" and weigh 200 lbs., I bought the XL and they fit as close to perfect as I could expect. I will use them for cold weather cycling primarily so will wear a bib short under them for the chamois. I'm very happy with the fit and quality material/workmanship of these tights. I really like PI's products and these do not disappoint. I'm excited to put them to the test when the fall winds start blowing!
There is no zipper to break at the cuffs (which has invariably been my experience). In place of bibs, I use button suspenders, otherwise there's a drawstring built into the waist. The weight of the fabric (thickness) on these is really useful... you can wear them comfortably down to temperatures in the low 50's high 40's just as they are; all the way down below freezing if you add a layer of insulated underwear beneath them. The fabric is very stretchy and forgiving... the seams and stitching throughout is first rate.
In my here, now the weather is very hot, I can't wear it, I hope it can be kept leg warmer at 10 degrees Celsius weather and effectively cut the wind but still maintains the permeability.
Have liked Pearl Izumi product for a many years. These tights live up to the reputation I've had. Very good quality and design. The price I got on Amazon $37 compared to $150 in the local shop WOW!.
Very happy with the overall fit of them, though with a 30" inseam the XL is a few inches too long for me. It's worth mentioning that these are NOT padded, so you'll most likely want to double up with a pair of padded shorts.
Keeps legs warm in 40 degree weather. Effectively cuts out all wind but still maintains breathability. True to size chart.
Not nearly as good as the previous (discontinued) model. Still the extremely high quality I expect from PI products, but the new material is more like a thin wet suit than a thermal compression tight. Have found that I only wear these when the others are in the wash. Strongly prefer the old model. May look around and try the Smartwool Men's PhD HyFi Zip Tight as a replacement. Won't wear these much as they're pretty uncomfortable.
Die Hose bietet die Qualität, die ich bei Artikeln von Pearl Izumi gewohnt bin und schätze. Gutes Material, gute Verarbeitung. Sie ist eng geschnitten, sitzt wie angegossen und hält trotz dünnem Stoff gut warm, denn das winddichte Material lässt die kalte Umgebungsluft nicht eindringen. Ich habe mich bewusst für eine Hose ohne Sitzpolster entschieden, denn so kann ich sie nicht nur zum Radfahren, sondern auch zum Laufen verwenden, wofür sie ebenfalls gut geeignet ist.
Für den Winter seit längerem mein Lieblingsprodukt.
Teilweise doppelter Stoff, hält schön warm, geht gut mit in der Bewegung und ist auch lang genug. Sitzt allerdings schon sehr figurnah, das ist nicht bei allen Winterhosen so.
Entgegen der Produktbeschreibung hat diese Hose kein Sitzpolster. Wieder einmal eine falsche Darstellung eines Produktes im Hause Amazon. Hose wurde zurückgeschickt.
