Ideal to use with summer bib shorts
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Small
I was struggling to find a good alternative to knee/leg warmers to extend the usefulness of my summer bib shorts. My strategy is to keep the upper leg and torso a bit warmer. Knee warmers often leave the bib part too cool. These tights add an extra layer over the shorts portion, let the bib short chamois do their work, and add a bit of protection over the rest of the leg. Great for 50F plus. I personally don't like thermal fleece layering due to the heat/moisture build up and lack of wind protection, so this is a better alternative. As with other Pearl Izumi products, I find it runs a little long for the size, but given the stretchability of the fabric, it is fine.
