A warm tight for all your winter sports.
Whether you're cycling, running, or Nordic skiing, your legs are your power source, so it's important to keep them warm and comfortable. That's why Pearl Izumi made the ultra-toasty Elite AmFib Men's Tights.
Designed to fit like it's race day but insulate like
you're on an arctic adventure, the AmFib has all the warmth you need
to turn icy rides, chilly runs, and training days on skis into comfortable cruises.
AmFib is made from a blend of Pearl's Elite AmFib softshell and
Elite Thermal Fleece fabrics. Thermal Fleece, which constitutes the back
panel, handles thermo-regulation and moisture wicking, while the Amfib
softshell is incorporated into key areas to eliminate moisture and
wind penetration. The
two fabrics coordinate effectively, so much so that Pearl Izumi gives
the AmFib tights a thumbs up for weather conditions as low as 15 degrees.
In case you're concerned about the tight getting too balmy at its
40-degree limit, you can ventilate from an
opening at the top of the waist, although its main intention is for easy
Pearl offers plenty of cycling-specific tights with chamois inserts, but the Elite AmFib skips the padding so you can also use it for running or Nordic skiing. To ensure full comfort no matter what you're up to, Pearl designed the tights to allow full articulation. The lower leg also follows a contoured shape that leads to an integrated stirrup and a gasket that allows the tights to be worn over shoes or boots. Not only does this streamline and secure the fit, but it eliminates gaps to reduce heat loss. The tights are finished with 360 degree reflective accents for safer night riding and running.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Replaced old winter tights I have been using for quite some time. These are great. Fit is excellent and they are tough. Comfortable to ride in. I have typically been riding in 25-30* weather, cold, wet. The tights performed as advertised. No chamois so I wear a pair of shorts underneath. These will keep you warm.
When it is really cold outside...
- Fit: True to size
Pearl Izumi USA is based in Boulder, CO. They know winter cycling. According to Pearl's website, these are their warmest cycling tights.
Application: These tights are designed for riding in the Winter (over your bibshorts); in cold and wet weather in the 25-45 range.
No chamois. Wear these -over- your favorite bib shorts. An effective (and affordable) solution to riding in cold and wet weather!
Typical excellent Pearl Izumi quality, QC, and attention to detail. Love the zipper garage at the bottom so the leg zippers do not flop around on each pedal stroke. No one else does this!
Sizing: The chart is accurate.
I'm 5'10" and 185. The size L for me perfect. Snug in the leg (but room for a little more). Good for 5'9" to 6'0" heights. I would fit in a size Medium if I was under 170/175 lbs.
