Rated 5 out of 5 by PanosGR Great pair of tights at reasonable price.
It is an excellent pair of tights that provides ride comfort thanks to the thick patch, keeps you warm but at the same time keeps sweat away and its inner smooth fabric feels really great.
It provides your muscles with adequate pressure, prolonging your stamina.
The graphics on both sides look nice, although it would be useful to have some reflective signs or branding at the back of the legs for night riding.

Rated 4 out of 5 Good Quality Warm Tights
I bought these as an upgrade from the cheap Muddyfox tights I bought last winter just as I was getting into mountain biking.
The quality of these are much better, with a lovely soft-feel fleece lining which adds to the warmth. The reflective logos on the sides also look great and help to increase visibility at night.
These are padded, although the pad isn't as great as I felt it could be. It's only a slight improvement from the one included in the cheap Muddyfox pair I bought last year.
My other slight annoyance is they don't come with elastic heel grips to keep them from riding up. This was quickly resolved by buying some elastic and stitching it on, however it would be great if they were included, especially at this price.
Overall a good product which I would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Duke Great value for money
Been wearing these for three seasons now. Warm and comfortable down to around zero. The material is pretty thick with a soft, quality feel to it. The silicone grip around the ankles is almost gone - but that doesn't seem to make a difference - and the brand on the thighs is fading. Other than that they're holding up remarkably well for the price. I'm 5ft 10'' w/ a 31'' waist. I took size S and the fit is spot on. Highly recommended - in fact, I'm here to buy another pair.
