    I grabbed some Rapha Core winter tights this year. Bike kit prices are *stupid* here at the moment, so Rapha core is actually the only 'cheap' stuff going (in some cases it's even on par with Wiggle's own DHB brand for value). I have an 88/89cm inseam (leg length discrepancy) and at times the size L that I went for felt slightly too big.

    For the money, though, they are awesome tights. I like them so much I tried to wash them for my next ride every time.
    Curious as to what temperature range you find them comfortable at. My winter tights are getting long in the tooth.

    We’re talking a Sydney winter here, so 5-8*C is about as cold as it gets; but they’d easily cope with less than that. They’re no thinner than tights I used to use in a UK winter.

    Has anyone else tried Isadore? I have both their lighter and heavier tights and like them very much.

    I have a pair of Hincapie Arenberg Zero bib tights that are a great fit, if you're a long legged galoot like me.

    Hi Jorn-

    I use the XL and they are comfortable. My thigh is 65cm. My inseam is 82cm and the length is fully down past my ankle. The heavier ones have a jaunty zipper (at the ankle- the crotch high zipper was rejected in the final design meeting).

    Thanks. I know Isadore runs small across their line so good to have some data points. Including the "jaunty zipper".

    36” ‘cycling inseam’, 34” pants inseam here. I’ve been using La Passione tights in Large. Fits well without stirrups as a data point. Same size for regular bibs.

    36" cycling inseam here also and Rapha Pro Team Winter Tights with Pad II in size L are very good fit.
    I normally wear their Pro Team bibs in size M but for the winter tights L is good because the fabric is not as stretchy.

    My previous favourite was PI Elite Amfib bibtights w/o pad, but they have ruined those with latest update and the legs are like 4" shorter in size L than before.
