endura thermolite bibtights (water repelent)
I’ve got a pair of the 3/4s, it’s like a DWR coating – water beads on them and rolls off, seem to be lasting ok.
Not waterproof, but they shrug off showers and spray. I still wear waterproof shorts over the top if it’s proper filth.
Quite warm – did me good for commuting in winter in edinburgh (7 miles-ish each way). Live in bristol now, never got cold enough to need them…
I do tend not to feel the cold tho.
FWIW they’re good, I’d buy a pair again.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber
AFAIK the thermolites are the replacement for the clip bibs (which had a waterproof-ish shin panel which I thought was a fantastic idea, shame they discontinued) if so then as a normal pair of tights they are great, double thick knees means they’re still comfy across a greater temp range (as opposed to your standard roubaix or coolmax which are only good for cold or cool respectively), good fit and wear well. If the coating is anything like the lusso max repel then as IA says light rain/puddle splashes will bead but nowhere near waterproof.Posted 4 years agodirtydogMember
Ime they’re not much warmer than standard bibs and they’re not particularly wind resitant either, if you want to maintain the dwr finish they will need to be washed in flakes/liquid soap, graphics crack and fall off 6/10. Agree with the br review.
I have a pair of cheap crane (aldi) tights which are much better.Posted 4 years agoSpeshpaulSubscriber

This, para medics cut my last pair off me, something about a broken leg. But they were great. the water proof shin stopped the water running down your leg and in to your boots.
“thermolites are the replacement” and are poo. not water repellent and went baggy very quicky. ie not Tights.
Lusso Max repels – not water proof but they take a good soaking, probably the best tight out there for the money, hunt around you can get them for sub £50Posted 4 years ago
