These tights are comfortable and have held up well for road cycling. They run a bit long and are probably better suited for slightly tall people as they tend to bunch/wrinkle at the lower legs (I'm 5' 6", 127 lbs with a 29" waist & 30" inseam). The padding is particularly thin so I would not recommend these for long rides, but they serve a good purpose on shorter trips. The stitching and overall quality is good, though the material is a little bit on the scratchy side, but for the price, it's a reasonable trade-off.

I received this order in a correctly marked package that indicated they were padded, but upon opening them I learned they did not have the padding. Amazon was quick and easy to deal with, they promptly swapped them out for the correct padded version.

Important to not that they are not lined (fleece) so they'll do well in cool weather but not at all intended for cold riding.

Like other mahfuggaz have commented the fabric and padding seem a little thin, but what do you expect for under forty bucks? I tried them out today on my 44 mile saturday ride. I've gotta say...I was impressed. Yes, the padding is a little thin, but honestly it's sufficient. Don't get it twisted...we suffer in Southern California with this damn June Gloom and Overcast skies that don't clear up until noon...Almost all paved bike riding in SoCal ends up at the beach, which means you are fighting onshore winds...let me tell you 'bout these winds...they is a mutha...they get all into your legs and can help exacerbate cramping. i couldn't find bike pants in the stores in June, because they all say it's summer...obviously they don't ride. When I first got on the trail I was a little salty because I could feel a breeze through the almost see through fabric...but after a little while, either i got used to it, or the fabric became a little damp, and more wind proof???? When I layed down on a picnic table for a break, I could feel the hot sun right through the fabric. Overall though, I think they are a decent buy...if they last a year, I'm going to call it good....really good.

I ride to work everyday, the round trip is about 20 miles. I couldn't justify spending $100 to buy a pair of cycling tights. So I bought this one when weather was just getting cold. The tag says it's made in US, a little surprise. I have inseam 32" and waist 32". The medium size fit me snug well, but I wish that it could be about 1.5" longer. I wear it when temperature hits just below 50F. It keeps me from feeling cold, but it does not make me feel warm since the material is really thin. The padding is small and thin, but it should work fine for short rides.
I also have Canari Tundra Gel G2 Cycling Tights, which feel wamer with thicker material, and probably 2" longer with medium size. I wear them when temperature reaches lower 40F or below.I wouldn't consider this BDI tight cheap and a good deal at the current price ($35). I would spend a little more for Canari Tundra.

These fit me alright. But you get what you pay for. They are cheap and it is obvious when you put these on. The material is pretty thin. It helps keep the chill out of the wind, but doesn't hold any warmth. The chamois pad is thin cheap foam. All one piece stitched around the outside. Doesn't provide much comfort at all really.

I ended up taking a fall with these on. A few nice sized holes were torn into them. The larger one on my hip was the size of my fist. I kept thinking that if they were better quality it could have prevented some of the road rash. But then I think I was glad to have these cheap ones one cause I didn't feel bad about trashing them after. I replaced them with a different brand. They were 3 times more expensive but worth it in my opinion.

I wish they had stirrups and a draw string. They run a tad big and I'm always adjusting them. In fairness, had I ordered a smaller size, this may not be an issue. They have a pad in the crotch, but you still need to wear shorts underneath. This was not clear to me upon reading the reviews when I made my purchase, but the first time out it was obvious right away and I turned around and put some shorts on. They are warm enough down to freezing. They are not a great tight, but you get what you pay for.

These are getting five stars for price/value. Most tights are simply very expensive - often twice or more the price of these. For an entry-level pair these are great. Keep in mind from a value perspective - these are a little thinner than higher-end tights. Also - the bad is pretty wimpy, but I tend to wear these with liner shorts with a fill pad, and that was fine. Not the coldest weather tights, but took the edge off a 55 degree day just fine.

These fit well. They are light-weight men's tights.
The seams are comfy and do not chafe.

There is a chamois / pad in the back, but it's really thin.
If the pad was gel + foam, then these would be my go-to tights for 45F-55F.
Instead, I just wear mid-weights from Cannondale, because the pad is better.

YMMV. I'm 6'6, 260 pounds and ride around 40 miles at a time.

I don't know if it is a price problem but these tights are really low quality. Very thin and non even fabric, some peaces are tighter than the other, The padding is very flimsy, you'd probably need another pair of shorts underneath.

Funcionan como lycras convencionales, su pad es tan delgado que parece que no lo tiene. La talla es un poco más grande de lo que esperaba.
