Rated 4 out of 5 by tibbs keep you dry but a little short in the legs
Great tights. Have kept me nice and dry on long wet rides . I'm 5ft 8 and a size 14 and a large fit me well with plenty of room for padded undershorts. However, I found the legs are a bit short but they do just cover the tops of my overshoes and zip down nice and snug so no water gets in. If you are taller you may find them too short. I also tried an XL and the legs were no longer so consider this before buying. The fabric is a bit rubbery and quite flexible but not as stretchy as lycra so you need to make sure you have enough room to move properly. They can get a bit hot so not for summer use or you will end up just as wet as you would if not wearing them, but are great for cooler months.
Overall a nice comfy pair of tights , and a great addition to your cycling wardrobe if you like to ride whatever the weather.
I wear mine with the Endura stealth jacket which is also very comfortable and stay dry top to toe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cormack Perfect for our wet weather
Very well made but quite tight at bottom so you might need a bigger size, good tights keep you dry but if temp. is higher than 5 C then you get a bit hot!

I had a problem with sizing on these items.I ordered small after checking the size chart but they would not fit a 32 waist so I returned them for mediums which did fit a 32 waist but were too short in the leg.I am only 31 inside leg but they left a gap between overboot and tights which would have let water into my boots.

beware of the online size chart. Its not accurate. there is not much stretch in these items and whereas small was supposed to fit 30/32 waist its maximum is 28"

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Технически штаны работают прекрасно:
после катания по мокрому грязному осеннему лесу штаны сильно испачкались. Решил, что стирать их каждый раз после такого катания будет неправильно - могут довольно быстро лишиться своих чудесных свойств.
Поэтому чистил так: залез в ванную в штанах, поливал душем(!!!) и стирал грязь тряпкой. ШИТАНЫ НЕ ПРОМОКЛИ!! Стоит ли говорить о том, что вода с дороги и дождь в них вообще не ощущаются.
Минусы мелкие и субъективные. Мне, как человеку с длинными ногами, в правильном размере они коротковаты. Это первый. Второй - то, что зафиксировать их шнурком на поясе не получается - всё равно слегка сползают. Третий, я понимаю, что вынужденный, - молнии внизу штанин приходится застегивать очень осторожно, чтобы волосы в них не попали.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great product
I initially tried the Stealth tights but they were too thick, inflexible and rubbery (like a wetsuit) so instead resorted to the Lites which are in my opinion much better. Far more flexible and extremely waterproof. After 4 hrs riding in the Cotswalds I was still warm and dry, really did not expect them to be that good. I would say that despite their wicking capability they are a little too warm and sweaty for the warmer weather, but late autumn, winter and early spring they do a great job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Brilliant, if a little warm for summer use
I tested these, the Flite jacket and the overshoes in a 4 hour squally downpour and neither they or the jacket let a drop in and they both kept me nice and cosy. They are probably a little warm for summer use, but otherwise perfect.
