I bought these in the dead of winter. Why in the hell are “tights” made of such totally sheer fabric? They’re useless.

I asked the Performance Bicycle online chat to recommend cycling tights for use in 30 degree weather. They told me to buy these. They are super thin runing tights I would use in 75 degree weather. They could not possibly be intended for cold weather cycling. I cannot believe I purchased them.

See my review for size M tights, not L. I can't delete this review entitled Black (L)

Louis Garneau Men's Optimum 2 Tights (Black) (M)
I'm disappointed that while the pants fit in terms of length and leg girth, the waste band is constricting. I wear size 32 pants and while the size chart says the M's are for waste circumference of 33-35" the waste band on the M's are so uncomfortable that I'm returning them. I assume that the L's will be too loose everywhere except the waste band. I never got to wear them on a ride but based on the thickness of the material, I think they'd be good in 48-55 degree weather for which I bought them.

I completely agree with the other reviewers that these are not for rides in the 30s. At $65 I never expected them to be. I live in SW Florida and for our winter mornings in the 50's they are perfect. So if you need tights for those Fall or Spring rides up north, these perform as well or better than I expected given their modest price.

Measurement Guide:

  1. Chest- Take measurement of the circumference around the fullest part of the chest while arms are relaxed at sides
  2. Waist- Measure the circumference of the waist at the natural crease of the waist while keeping tape measure a bit loose (finding natural waist crease can be easily found by bending over to one side)
  3. Hips- Standing with feet together, measure the circumference around the fullest part of the hips at the top of the legs
  4. Inseam- Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg
  5. Body Length- Run a tape measure from the top pf the shoulder, across the chest/belly, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point

Measurement Notes:

  • Keep tape measure level and not too tight
  • For most accurate results, take measurements over underwear or close fitting apparel
  • Take measurements twice with a flexible tape measure to ensure accuracy
