Wow, these pants fit so well and feel so comfortable on me I can't believe it. They reach all the way down to my ankles and keep me warm without any dang cold air leakage. Gotta love that!! Even without booties, I was very comfortable riding into cold damp wind this morning. The fit is excellent and doesn't feel like you are being choked or poured into a tight that restricts your overall movement. I love these! I can get off the bike and walk without feeling stiff or getting twisted up! They are a nice comfortable fit and as some have asked, this model does NOT have a chamois. For a long ride or a stiff seat, that could be a problem to worry about. Since I ride horses as well, I tend to have a tougher buttocks than many cyclists alone. However, even I would like to have a chamois if was riding longer than say five hours! Unless yo really need/want a chamois, I think this pair of Lady Tights will be a favorite in your bike bag!
