C3 Thermo Tights+
Get ready for those cooler fall and winter bike rides with the C3 Thermo Tights+ from Gore Wear. These tights are designed to provide protection and warm insulation without adding much bulk so you can pedal comfortably while keeping those muscles, ligaments, and tendons nice and toasty. Gore even adds an additional layer of stretch insulation at the knees that you'll certainly appreciate on those chilly starts.
The primary insulator is its Thermo lining that's a warm, brushed material that lies softly against your skin. Gore connects the panels with flat-lock stitching to cut down on friction and chafing and an adjustable, elastic waistband with flat cord pull keeps the fit in check. Gore Windstopper material is found at the front of the chamois, blocking frigid oncoming winds while remaining breathable so you can ride outside year-round while others have succumbed to riding the trainer. Lastly, reflective logo and print help keep you a little more visible with the reduced daylight hours on offer during the cooler months.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'8"

The chamois pad seems to bunch up in the seat area on (hard to explain) and I had difficulties keeping the pant up on my waist with the draw strings.
Comfortable? Not for rides longer than 1 hours in my opinion.
Worth the price? No, not at $120.
Does this have chamois padding? And how does this differ from C3 Thermo Tights (non plus version)?
Hi Alexander, these do have a chamois and that is one of the differing factors from the non plus version (Item # GWR005O). These are designed specifically for road cycling where as the other pair can be used for running as well. They will both serve well in colder weather and are reflective but if you are wanting something specifically for cycling, this would be the better option.
