zoned fabric placements for maximum protection
Stretchy and soft Storm+ thermal fleece in the hip and knee flex-points, paired with a 3-layer waterproof fabric in areas which require more coverage (low-back and wet-out areas surrounding the chamois), ensures maximum mobility and wet weather protection.
My experience with those bibs has been really very good
Easy and a good value. These tights are warm and non-restrictive when riding. Good in the upper 30”s and wind resistant.
When I received these tights I was dubious. I just didn’t understand how they could be thermal AND waterproof. They aren’t overtly thick or fleecy, or have an external waterproof membrane. When I put them on, I had more doubts. The tights felt thin and cool. I went out there at 5:00 am in 40-degree weather figuring I was going to climb a lot, so I would not need truly thermal tights. Maybe I didn’t need thermal tights for the climbs, but descending canyons at 40mph, as temperatures dropped toward freezing, the tights really shined. Indeed, they are ideally thermal — I was never cold or too warm. A week later, I went out for a 2-hour ride in the rain. My head got wet, my hands and feet got wet and cold, but my legs were again at Goldilocks-perfect level of warmth and dryness. An excellent pair of tights. Get yourself a pair.
When I received my thermal storm thermal bibs, I didn't think they would fit. Once I tried them on they fit perfectly. They actually keep me warm on my rides. Very pleased with the purchased
I had a couple of rides with this bib it held up very well during a morning ride 37 degrees no wind resulted in a comfortable ride. Thank you Pactimo keep up the good work!!!
Great quality and warm for those fall/ late spring rides in Colorado. One thing that is missing is a pocket of some sort! Otherwise amazing value.
First, the good: These fit well and are very comfortable. I particularly like the upper straps/braces and the stretchy ankle cuffs that are snug yet still easy to don and doff without requiring zippers. The chamois is also very comfy albeit rather chunky, which is strange since it's the same one used in the Summit Strike bibs which are among my very favorites. Now, the caveats: these are advertised as good down to 30F, which may be fine for the dry and sunny Colorado climate, or if you're doing max effort hill repeats, but doubtful for the often damp and windy climate here in the Pacific NW where I live. I'd say it's good down to the low 40s or high 30s, tops. And my biggest gripe: the waterproof membrane only covers the middle and rear portions of the seat area, and neglects the very-exposed front of the chamois. Tonight's commute home was 25 mins in a steady rain and while the rest of the bibtights stayed mostly dry, the front of the chamois was soaked. I hope Pactimo fixes this in the next version with a true, fully protected chamois region, otherwise I can only recommend these bibs for brief showers or light drizzles.
Love these bibs. Great for all my should season gravel riding.
Wore them through a rainstorm. Worked perfectly. :)
