Rated 5 out of 5 by Adejax Fantastic Bib Tights
I've been looking for a water resistant\proof pair of tights for a while. Worn for the first time yesterday on a 70 mil ride with rain right from the off with a Gabba Jacket. The water just beads off the material keeping you dry. These are not thermal tights and provide some compression but are very effective at keeping out the weather which in turn keep you warm and toasty.
The combination of the two meant I keep dry and warm whilst other around me started to feel the effects of the Bank Holidy weather

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eddiefromdublin great bib tights
they hold out light rain, wash well after a few months of washing hardly any wear on inner leg or bum, keep you warm in Irish winter weather ( in the -2 to 3 Cel weather need something extra under or over) they also act like compression shorts would, they dry out great on a heavy rain day. so I would say well worth the money and would buy again & again.
PS too warm for even Irish April to September weather.

I got this Castelli NanoFlex Bib Tights a few days ago and try the waterproof test. The water forms a droplet on the surface and run straight down just like what you wound see on the youtube. Great stuff.

Having read a few reviews I bought the XL. I am 185 cm and 80kg and they fit perfectly. I was a bit dubious about the waterproofness claim but the first ride I went on it rained on me and sure enough the water beaded up and ran off without soaking through. brilliant stuff. As a bonus when you get home a quick wipe down with a towel and they come clean as the dirt seems to sit on the outside too. recommended
