Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous excellent quality
Bought these to go with other Skins kit and was really impressed on the first few rides. No rubbing in the usual areas and the pad is super-comfy. Did an 87 mile sportive in miserable weather, and they were great with less fatigue than I was expecting, or had got from standard bibs over 60+ mile rides. Icing on the cake was the great discount as they are too expensive at full price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Very comfy apart from back of the knee
These are very good bib shorts and the padding is excellent and extremely comfy, without being too thick. As Harry says, the bottom of the trouser part starts off below my knees (which is great, I don't need knee warmers as much), but eventually rides up and creases at the back of my knees which gets a bit itchy. I end up pulling them back down every few km.
I'm going to give these the extra star because of the compression element, which really seems to work. My quads are tingly when peddling hard with these on, and they do feel like they're holding my thighs together nicely. It makes them very comfy and I need less of a massage after I've come off the bike.
I would certainly buy Skins bib again but would go for the full length one - it will avoid the creasing and I want some of that compression magic on my calves too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Great 3/4 with some imperfection
Great compression 3/4 tights. It does prevent fatigue and improve the riding performance as advertised. Looks good too. However the material on the back of the knee isn't very comfy. Since there's no grip at the bottom of the 3/4, it may move to another position during the ride and cause some discomfort. Hence the 3 star rating. Hopefully SKINS will address this issue with their future 3/4 tights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfortable but see-through rear
Bought these a month ago & worn them twice. Lovely fabric and I really like the compression and they probably have the best pad of any bottoms I've got. One problem though is they are very see-through at the rear (according to my wife who kept commenting all the way round our last ride). I'd give these a 5* apart from this.
