Super pleased with my Craft base layers. It is the second I purchased from Bike Tires Direct in the previous few weeks. I also still frequently wear one that I purchased years ago. All base layers are excellent products and a good value as well. I have known for years that the Swedish, elite men and women's cross country teams wear Craft products when competing internationally. That was a sufficient endorsement to convince me. The base layers are also far more economical than turning up the home thermostat
I love all things Craft. I have had some Craft short sleeve base layers for over 10 years and they do not wear out. Super warm on cold days here in Northern Colorado. fits snug- I recommend to size up if you don't like tight.
I've ridden these a lot on rides where the temp goes well over 100ï¿½. Keeps you cooler than just a jersey, that's for sure. You wouldn't think they would but they do. You don't even notice that it's there except that you're cooler than without it. If I had to make a complaint, it's that sunscreen stains the neck after a while. But nobody ever sees these when you're riding so who cares, right? They go on sale every so often so keep an eye out.
Only worn once as weather is warming here in SoCal, but these are very nice tights.
I'm a avid road rider, 5'8", 160 lbs. and the medium fits fine, (legs long enough for taller riders). These come up further above the waist than some bibs for added warmth, but a male could still stretch these down for a nature break.
The lower legs have a different material, (a bit more wind resistant, I believe), and the 8", (210cm) locking, quality zipper is long enough to remove tights w/out removing shoes, if needed.
The inside is a mild fleece-type material, not too clammy, but most likely not warm enough much past above 45f for cooler running folks like me.
The neon green straps make these easy to spot amongst other kit.
The chamois is, a good amount of padding, (a bit on the soft side).
I'd buy again, as these provide me with the warmth I need in cooler wx.
