Craft PB Thermal Bib Tights with Chamois - Men's $159.95
Craft's new PB Thermal Bib Tights were engineered with a combination of proprietary weather-fighting fabrics and a sleek anatomic fit. The tights were also built with an integrated chamois, providing you with the ultimate package of protection, support, and warmth — ensuring your legs will be spinning in comfort throughout the colder months ahead.
The Thermal tights' multi-panel design was made from a blend of Craft's exclusive fabrics. The outer-layers of the tights use ultra-thin, laminated versions of polyester, polyamide, and elastic to provide windproof insulation without dissipating any of the tights' breathable characteristics. This comfort level is further enhanced by the inner lining's use of square-channeled microfleece that wicks moisture to the quick-drying surface. This microfleece also provides insulating warmth. As a system, the tights' material selection works in harmony with the anatomic, multi-panel cut. Together, they follow the contours of the body to allow full freedom of movement.
For further comfort, the tights use Craft's Active chamois. Featuring an upgraded design, the new chamois has improved both the anatomic and moisture transport characteristics of the insert. The Active chamois is now a seamless, laser cut pad made from top shelf Oeko-Tex fabrics and foams. Consisting of four-way stretch fabrics, the Active chamois provides specified support that counters to your movements. The new pad is also antimicrobial, and it has been given a hydrophilic treatment to minimize moisture buildup.
The Craft PB Thermal Bib Tights With Chamois - Men's are available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in the color Black.

- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I'd been intrigued by these tights from the other reviews, so I decided to pick up a M & L not knowing what size I'd need. At 5'10", 32' inseam, the Medium was SPOT on. Fit like a Castelli Large. The large was just a tad too long, and there was some loosey-goosey stuff going on with the chamois. I felt like I had a load in my diaper.
Anyway, I never got around to riding them, as the chamois was a really odd 2-piece shape. There's a channel down the middle of it that gave me the worst manmal-toe, and really made the boys feel like they didn't know which neighborhood they belonged in. I've returned them both based on the chamois alone. The tights themselves seemed SUPER warm and are probably a killer pair of tights. I guess my scranus is just too picky.

Rode comfortable in 42 degrees. Chamois "firm but fair." I like fit of XXL. 50% off was great! After using a few times I brought a second set.
I think I'm hooked

I was a little apprehensive when I took them out of the bag. They felt way too light to be warm enough. It was all uphill from that first impression. First was putting them on. Fit was very good and comparable to what I've found from other Craft products. These have a different material around the knee area that allows for movement that feels like shorts. Then I took them outside. The day I first tried these on was 24 at the start of the ride. I was comfortable in the for the full 1 1/2 hour ride.
Definitely adding these to my Christmas wish list.

I was interested in a set of bib tights to combat the "droopy drawers" I was getting with standard tights. I usually wear unpadded tights so I was a bit apprehensive initially. I got them after the snowstorm and took them on a 20 mile ride in a bout 16* F weather. I couldn't be more pleased, last week in the 25-30* range, I was cold with 2 pair of tights and all bunched up in the middle, these kept me warm by themselves. Chamois seems very comfortable, only have ~20 miles on it though. Always great service from CC
