top drawer bibs, cosmetic flaws
These are super-comfortable tights - just the right thickness and texture to be comfy in 40 - 60 degree weather. They keep out the wind, provide plenty of support, and the pad is just right - thick enough for long rides but supple enough to conform. My only beef (thus the four stars) is with the stick-on rubberized lettering. It started peeling off after just a few rides. It doesn't affect the utility, but you have to wonder why a company like Castelli would put its name in bold letters on a high-end garment and not make it look good.
