The Bee's Knees
Long base miles require exceptional winter gear and you'll want to feel as comfortable in harsh conditions as you do in-season, if you desire training properly. The chamois needs to remain comfortable over the course of an all-day ride. Materials need to be warm but not so bulky that you resemble Ralphie's brother on his way to school. The De Marchi Winter Bib Knickers get excellent Italian fabrics, superior design, and fine craftsmanship ensuring you get the most out of your winter training.
The Winter Bib Knickers begin with De Marchi's N-Duro pad, the same top-quality chamois used on all of their high-end bottoms. The top layer contacting your skin is made from a textured high-density fabric designed to move with your body eliminating chafing. It's bacterial-static and features a built in channel to help relieve pressure on the sit bones and perineum. The knickers are cut from Roubaix fabric helping to trap heat while moisture is transported to the surface where it can evaporate. Fuller coverage bib upper maintains warmth and the zipper front aids in nature breaks.

I would have kept these, but THERE WAS NO PAD. The description and specs stated there was a pad. Maybe this was a reject that made into the sales channel? My choice was return it or buy liner boxers. I returned it, because I found a Pearl Izumi pair of knickers that fits and is padded.
