Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Warm comfortable and excellent fit
Have used these since November for my 10 mile round trip commute to work. Have kept me warm from -3 and still not too hot at +10. Comfy in the rain too, they keep you warm even when wet.
Very light weight, superb pad and a very good all round fit.
Only minor critism is that the leg length could do with another inch on me, but otherwise perfect.
Am 6'2' a little over 12 stone with 34" waist, I bought a size XL, very pleased with the fit. Tried them on alongside the Velocissimo, bought the Sorpasso despite the extra cash.
Trouble is my padless Gore tights are now redundant.............

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Superb tights with an issue at the seat pad...
This is by far the best long tights I ever had. Perfect fit all around! At first I've been skeptic about the ultra thin straps but they seem to be durable and have a nice feel. I wear this tights at temperatures ranging from -5° (on short tours) or 0° (on longer tours) to about 10°C. For really low temperatures windproof material is missing but that's not what it is made for.
However there is an issue as mentioned in the headline: I'm not fully satisfied with the Progetto X2 seat pad. It has a nice thickness and feels quite good in the rear part. But at the foreside there is an invisible seam producing a firm edge somehow. This seam is between the rear part of the seat pad and a triangular shaped part in the front. Not a problem on short rides but when biking longer it's always the same spot where you feel a slight pressure between your legs. That's maybe not a big problem but regarding the price of this tights one should at least mention it...

I'm looking for bib tights with long legs. I have a 31" waist and 33" inside leg and find it difficult to get a good all round fit. I currently have a pair of Assos air block tights in XL for cold rides but even these are too short in the leg.
