Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Odd fit but superb quality
I'm 5 11 12 stone and bought a large, length wise the large would fit someone up to about 7ft tall! The material is very stretchy! They are very tight over my thighs but slightly baggy at the ankles and I have to fold them like some kind of reverse turn up.
They have a not unattractive blue sheen to the material which is very warm (-10 with wind chill) and like a previous post states you dont not even notice you are wearing them such is their comfort. Even after many many washes they repel a surprising amount of water and I've never retreated them.
Overall one of my goto pieces of kit, the stuff you would always pack first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent Value Warm Winter Tight
I've had two pairs of these for the winter months commuting. I am 6ft1 and 13stone and I went with a large. They are a fairly tight fit but because of the soft inner lining they are super comfortable. After a few uses you forget you are wearing them. The only grumble I have is that the product information states they repel water. Well when I first bought them they did, but after a couple of careful washes the coating started to wear off. I think this is the same with a lot of products advertised as waterproof/repellent. Nevertheless I have used these in some serious downpours and -3 degrees temperatures. Although they absorb water in the heaviest of rain they keep you warm, cosy and dry quickly. I choose to wear some padded lycra shorts underneath for the extra comfort.

Had a pair of these for about 3 months and just bought another pair. They are comfortable and warm even in the wet. I would definitely recommend these tights!

Very comfy - I'm 5'11 with 32" inside leg , weigh 12st and the XL is perfect for me. Had several pairs of these and keep buying them. Buy with confidence. Warm and comfy.

I've now had two pairs of these and they are awesome. Warm in winter, they dry quickly and are superbly comfortable.

I'm almost 5'10" and have a 33 waist (although I wear mostly 32 waist pants) and have been gifted with a large rear end and thighs. Will the medium be too tight? If I go with the large will they be too long?
