This classic tight has wind-resistant softshell panels at the front and rear quad area and at the knees, increasing the effective temperature range. ELITE Barrier fabric provides superior wind protection and water resistance.
I was specifically seeking a bib tight without a chamois, because they are far more versatile. I can wear my normal cycling shorts under them and get more than 1 wear between washings, meaning I only need 1 pair to get me through the winter. Extra bonus is that the chamois-free tights cost less.
These appear to be nice bib tights though it isn't cold enough for me to have used them yet so I cannot comment on that at this point. However, be aware that they DO NOT have the ELITE 3D Chamois as advertised. Everything else is as stated but that is a significant omission. Basically you will still need to wear bike shorts under them. (as a previous reviewer stated he does) I'm just trying to make it clear that they are not quite the same as advertised.
Nice bib. It keeps my lower body warm for rides at temps between about 40 and 50-F. I'm 6'2", 180-lbs, 36" waste. I first tried the XXL sized bib. However it was too large so return it to Amazon. I ordered a XL bib and its very comfortable even with a pair of bike shorts underneath (I wear the bike shorts underneath the bib for the shorts chamois).
The xl fit to the loose side the chamois is comfortable it gets better every time you use them. Good Quality plenty warm enough for Southern California winter night riding.
nice bib pants very warm. I only wish there was a gel insert. Other than that im super happy with the product
These pants are nice and warm. They size and fit true to P I bib shorts. They cut the wind and still have give for a pair of tights.
Cons: not padded and very thin.. I don't think I vetted this one enough before purchasing as this was not what I was looking for.. I assume they intend this to be worn under another kit (i'm new to cycling so maybe that was stated somewhere in the description and I just missed it)..
Received my new Pearl Izumi bib tights today in anticipation of wearing them this weekend. Guess what? No chamois. How can I possibly ride without a chamois (as advertised). Waste of my time and I will be out of my money until the refund comes through.
