Almost great.

    Very nice bib tights and very warm. There is a bit of an issue with the fit however, I'm 5'8 150lbs and went with a medium. Everything fits for the most part, but the lower legs are quite in, it's as chore to get them on. In addition, they bunch up a bit in the "lower abdomen" area and beneath your rear end. Most of this bunching seems to disappear when you're on the bike, but something to think about if you're a bit on the short side or are less-than-gifted in upper leg/hip/rear end size. Still an 8 out of 10 for me.

    Love Gore Bike Wear

      I have to tell you, I absolutely love Gore Bike Wear stuff! My brother bought me some winter tights this year. After trying them on, I didn't think I would like them because the chamois felt bulky. However, AFTER I rode with them, I have to tell you, THIS IS THE BEST bike garment I own. The chamois turned out to be very comfortable.

      I ride year round. I've ridden in snow, rain, sleet and sunshine. I've used a lot of different brands too including: Castelli, Novara, Pearl Izumi, Specialized, Louis Garneau, Hincapie, Sugoi, REI and many other brands and I have to say i like my Gore stuff better than any other brand.

      I must confess though, the model I have isn't this same one as this one but the other Gore Bike Wear stuff is absolutely amazing. I own mountain bike shorts, jackets, and jerseys from Gore and they are really, really good stuff.

      I'm female, 5'8" and 132 lbs. I have a 34" inseam. Will the men's small have a long enough inseam? In winter I'm riding in weather down to single digits. Is this the heaviest tight for that temperature?

      You may also want to wear a over pant if it's really bad. Something like Gore's ALP-X 2.0 GT...these are completely waterproof, and an additional weather protector. I have these, but suggest to also invest in some sort of 'pant leg protector' to keep the baggy bottom leg out of the chain. Deuter makes a great one.

      Don't know about the chamois/fit for a woman; you may have some issues due to a different design for the men vs. women.

      Good Luck this next season and stay safe!

      What is the difference between the Oxygen...

      What is the difference between the Oxygen SO Bib Tight and the Xenon SO Bib Tight?

      First, the Oxygen is available with or without a chamois, while the Xenon is only available with chamois. The Xenon chamois is very road specific and minimalist with density only where needed, while the Oxygen chamois is more plush, though still with varied densities where it matters.

      Second, the Xenon is a little warmer, with slightly thicker brushed fleece backing, though the Oxygen is still VERY warm.

      Third, the Xenon is cut a little more aggressively (for a more stretched out position on a road bike).

      Hope that helps,

      These bibs are used in what is the temperature...

      These bibs are used in what is the temperature range? I live in NC and need warmth into the 30s and 40s. I find stuff that may be good in the 10s and 20s are simply too warm for my climate.

      What is the bibs water resistance...

      What is the bibs water resistance characteristics?

      WINDSTOPPER from Gore can best be described as more than water-resistant, the only reason it cannot be tagged as "waterproof" is because the membrane primarily stops wind and isn't designed to be waterproof- there's other membranes for that. It is leaps and bounds ahead of most manufacturers DWR or "water resistant" applications. If you want to block wind, look no further.

      I have never used a bib with strirrups...

      I have never used a bib with strirrups before. I am little concerned the fabric underneath my feet will annoy me. What is the material the stirrup is made out of like? It is pretty thin?

      Do these have the Windstopper fabric on...

      Do these have the Windstopper fabric on the whole garment or just the front panels? And does the SO model mean they have a pad or not?

      This bibtight has WINDSTOPPER® soft shell material in approximately 90% of the front and back of the legs. The SO indicates it is WINDSTOPPER® Soft Shell whereas AS indicates WINDSTOPPER® Active Shell. This bibtight does not have a chamois.
