good all around

I prefer to have my knees covered while on my bike, so I like the below the knee length of these tights (I would like them even a bit longer) I can wear these spring, summer, & fall in Pacific Northwest. Very comfortable to ride in. Chamois is soft and flexible, not too bulky. Have to squiggle around a bit on my saddle to get it in the perfect place, but then it is (perfect!) The waist on these is a bit high, so rolled it down at first, but then traded down a size. Currently wearing size small (at 5'5", 117lbs).
Customer service at Real cyclist is the best!

If you haven't already tried the Silverline knickers (Giordana), I think you may like them. They hit below the knee, but don't squeeze calves. They do stay in place; and you can even tweak them a bit lower, or even a bit higher (above the knee, if you'd want) with no problems. Fabric is very soft and breathes pretty well, no scratchy seams, waist if perfect, chamois is comfy. And...they're pretty sharp!
