Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous odd fit and cheap feeling material
I am an athletic body shape and generally wear size small kit. In a size small these were loose around my knees, thighs and body and about 2 inches too short. The material also felt very thin, prickly and cheap. If you happen to find they fit then they may be ok but they didn't feel like they would keep much heat in.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Hard to overlook bad fit
If you want a warm bib tight for winter training, theses tights do a very good job. But if you also want a comfortable tight. look elsewhere. The pad just does not stay in position at all, constantly moving forward where it is not needed. Im fairly sure I got the right size (185cm, 85kg size large. Possibly XL would have helped) but I have not had one comfortable ride with these on. Also lettering peels off after couple of washes. Expected more for my money

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Uncomfortable seat pad
Only wore these once and there is so much bulk in the pad in the centre it chaffed me so sore after a few hours. I expected splashing out on a pricey pair of longs would improve comfort but they are far less comfortable than anything else I own. Don't even know if I can wear them again.
The fabric also wears quickly and the stitching inside the legs pinches the skin and hairs.
Would not recommend to anyone unless you like a thick seat pad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great gear but not that warm
First - credit to CHain reaction - they got the gear to me in under 24 hours (Belfast to SW Scotland). Way to go!
I love Endura gear. I am a big guy (190cm and 115Kg) and getting stuff to fit is not always easy but Endura have my measure and the XXL were generously cut leaving me thinking maybe I should have gone XL (I have the 400 3/4 length in XL and these are my faves) . Quality and style are perfect. Fit ( a little slack in places but v. comfortable). Not as warm as made out though - I trialled them yesterday on a 35km circuit at 0 degrees C and didn't really get warm, which was a bit disappointing as we have plenty colder days here. They win on comfort and freedom of movement but will not stand really cold days without another layer under. BTW. I run really warm/sweat buckets so factor that in when I say I didn't get warm. (OK on the top half though with Endura Stealth jacket and Helly merino base layer. Have given 4 stars would have been 5 is as warm as claimed - but they're not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Ok but some design flaws
They're a nice fit and the padding is good, but there are some problems. Firstly, the material around your bottom isn't strong enough, wearing through quite easily around the edges of the saddle, and particularly if it rubs on any saddlebags you're carrying.
Secondly, the zipper is too close to your crotch, and has no flap of material on the inside - so the metal zip contacts your skin. When riding, the bottom of the zipper rubs against your crotch area, which can prove painful after 3-4 hours in the saddle. Things get worse if you've had a wee or two, as chafed skin + stale wee = pain.
Third, the white lettering flakes away after only a few hundred miles of use, making your legs look scruffy.
I wouldn't buy these again. The flaw with the zipper is unforgiveable for a company of this much experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous This Bib's performance far exceeds the asking price!
Size wise it won't trouble you if you follow the size chart. I ordered a medium and it feels as "tight" as it should with the straps holding it firmly into place.
The quality is outstanding!
Light, yet warm, but still it won't make one sweat like a pig.
It looks far better than the picture, so very athletic & professional!!
Last, the padding is great. Great quality pad, excellent fit.
I highly recommend this piece of clothing!!!
Go out -> Ride more!

I just go these ahead of the cold season and love them. The sizing is excellent, the fabric is really nice and warm and the padding is the best I've ever had. I rode 100 kilometer last weekend in +2-3 degrees C and the tights where almost too warm. I'm going to use these for my daily 35 kilometer commute.
Combined with the Endura Road Overshoes I think I can take anything winter can throw at me.
