    good product

    Note: I own an LG jersey is inferior and I so was initially afraid of LG quality when buying these tights. I was also hesitant due to the fact that these have no padding (extra wear on my current shorts and complexity with dressing). But I've been very happy with these and glad I got them. They have no fleece lining. They have been great for chilly weather and--depending on your constitution--I've found they are just about right for me starting with temps in the upper 50's F and below (I haven't found and documented a bottom range yet). I was initially afraid of a cheap cut and short length but I completely appreciate that they are generous in length, fit me well and fully (I'm heavy for my size). They did not leave my knees constrained or my ankles cold (I am 5'9", 33" inseam, 34" waist, ordered large and it has been about right). They seem to keep my legs warm but they can cause my legs to sweat when it gets into the 60s. As they are nylon, they wick about as you would expect. There are no bottom zippers and I have just a slight tussle getting my feet into them initially always, but not at the cuffs. I'm not finding any issues wearing padded shorts underneath. These are a great basic tight although I feel they are a bit pricey at full retail. I'm hoping I can catch them on sale again (my value rating is based on Black Friday sale price)... I would be happy to order another pair of these.

    bd\beautifully made, but too thin for cold weather protection

    Well constructed of quality materials, but unfortunately too long in the legs, and too thin for thermal protection in cold weather. I wore them on one ride in 40-degree weather, and cut my ride short to go home and change back to my old, warmer tights.

    Works for Most Cold Days

    This is a medium weight but warm tight that should work for most riders for the most days of cold weather. It is comfortable, looks good, and well made. And it is great value like most Louis Garneau products.
