warm but poor fit depending on your legs

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

5'8" 150lbs, bought a small. it was a little too long and loose. the fabric does its job but cannot warm what it doesn't cover: the crotch. if you're riding in cold weather, you need cold weather tights/knickers and cannot get by with just these and a pair of gossamer summer shorts.

that said, these did actually warm my legs; the arrangement of windproof panels in front of the knees did work nicely.

even when i wore the warmers under my shorts, they seemed to slip down even on relatively short (10-20 miles) rides in 40 degree weather.

Regarding leg warmer slippage (so irritating)... try this trick offered by mar2596868: use skin balm. I use organic "Badger Balm" made in New Hampshire (avail online or at natural food stores). It works!
