Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Defective stitching
Nice warm fabric, with a basic pad. The stitching joining the pad to the tights failed in two places after only a few rides. Either poor design, or poor quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous great fit
I purchased these to start commuting, excellent fit and good padding where its needed. Bit unsure over size to order after reading the other reviews, I am 34 waist and a medium fits fine. fleece lining keeps legs quite warm, but will need full legs covering if it gets much colder.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Perfect for commuting or training rides
I bought the Polaris 3 based on positive reviews, many of which mentioning commuting. I fully agree. Theses knickers are in the low end of the price range, and you obviously don't expect top notch fit or quality. They still feel quite well made, excellent for commuting and actually good enough for training rides.
As for sizing I apparently end up between M and L, being around W33L32 when it comes to Levi's. I went for the L, but I'm finding them slightly loose, both around thighs and waist.
As they're warmer than I expected I'll probably be using them lomger into the winter season, so I'm considering getting another pair, this time going for size M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Super comfy
I use them for commuting under my 3/4 Endura Humvees, and it's super comfy for the colder days. They have resisted very well to multiple washing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Hate them
I first put these on and my mrs just laughed at me and took the p**s, simon cowel lol. i hate them! they do not fit(correct size), and they do not keep you warm like other reviews suggest. they do keep your legs warmer than if you were not wearing anything at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Perfect for commutes and cold rides
I own the 08 version, and since the temperatures dropped, I've been wearing them everyday for my work commute, as well as my regular rides under my Endura Humvees.
The micro-fleece interior is extremely toasty and comfortable, with no overheating or discomfort.
These were my first ever lycra/legging type purchase and I'm impressed. The Non-slide gripping on the leg hem works exceptionally well, and the tights have survived many washes without any "bobbling" or deforming.
The padded area is comfortable and unobtrusive - but next time I'd go for one size smaller, XL, instead of the XXL I bought.
Buy these, you won't be disappointed : )
