Bib shorts & tights together etiquette/comfort?
stAn-Bad Brains MBCMember
works fine for me – used this combo for years.
Favourite cold weather combo = base layer – thermal padded bib longs [3/4 shorts] – then a jersey then bib tights without pad then jacket.
Only problem is the trail side pi$$ – but you soon get the hang of it. Or wet and smelly.Posted 4 years ago
Toppers that’s what I imagined, 2 x bib things don’t look comfy also I don’t like the idea of anything between my skin and the pad, otherwise won’t it just bunch up and chaffe
Sounding like bib shorts with normal unpadded tights over the top, still concerned about tights slipping down or the waist of them being uncomfy/digging in when I’ve always been used to ultra comfy bibsPosted 4 years ago
So with the cold weather coming what do you do? I’ve used just a padded bib tights for last few years but hate wearing them as they’re just not that comfy.
Toying with the idea of my regular padded bib shorts with some unpadded bib tights over the top but then I wondered just how comfy this will be with two lots of ‘braces’ going over your shoulders plus camelbak…would just unpadded tights work better…but I’m a big fan of bibs and wondered whether tights would slip down…decisions…what do you do?Posted 4 years ago
I can’t do 3/4 length tights in the winter as I when my feet get wet they get ‘very’ cold and one way I’ve found to get round them is by having some waterproofish tights that go over the top of my sealskin socks.
I’m now thinking just some Castelli nanotech biblongs but with a pad may be the way forwardPosted 4 years agowwaswasSubscriber
leg warmers and normal bib shorts
I’d be worried about getting a frost bitten willy.
I always buy pad free winter stuff as it’s cheaper and I have several sets of perfectly good padded shorts to wear underneath.
Also means I can replace shorts as the pads wear out and keep using the winter stuff on top.Posted 4 years agonjee20Subscriber
All of last winter I used Roubaix leg warmers and normal bib shorts. Seemed to work well and meant I have no issues with comfort.
I tend to do that on the MTB, and do actually find I stay warm. On the road with the extra wind chill I prefer a bit of crotch fleece.Posted 4 years ago
