Knickers warm quicker.

Great, but not winter weight
Like my Ozon summer bibs, these knickers fit perfectly. The chamois is great, although I like the Ozon chamois as well if not better.
But if you're expecting a winter-weight garment, look elsewhere. The panels surrounding the chamois are made from the same summer-weight material as my Ozon shorts, and the rest (including the entire knee) is only slightly heavier. They're great in the 50-65F range, and although most people would opt for summer shorts and knee warmers in that temp range, I don't like mucking around with knee warmers and prefer the single piece setup these knickers offer.
Good fit and excellent pad, not over padded but comfortable for long rides. I bought these knicker length bibs because I could not find another pair of Gore Xenon bibs anywhere. Good addition for colder weather, but would just as soon have regular bibs with leg warmers, just personal preference on that though. Small is pretty tight on me at 5'8" and 138 pounds, but mediums have too much seat material. Good bibs.
