    …….another vote for Endura. They seem to last an age too.

    I had some endura bib 3/4 which were great, but the pad fell to bits after a couple of years so I removed and wore padded shorts underneath but I was dissappointed. Got some of their baggies too and had problems with zips and stitching. And the liner short sizes? Two pairs, both med, one very tight and one very big. Trying Ground Effect 3/4’s now and they seem good so far but only used them a couple of times. Knees ride up a little, but nice and warm and look well made and they only took a week to arrive over the Xmas period despite coming from New Zealand. In summary Endura stuff does the job well but seems a bit fragile, Ground Effect looks promising.

    The cheaper Endura ones are better than the MT500 IMO. The MT50 are a very funny shape, definitely one to try before you buy. Ground Effect are very nice, and have fleecy knees.

    Previously a fan of bib 3/4s, I got some of these a year or so ago. They’re ace.

    Agree with Nickc…my MT 500s feel wrong….feel like they need pulling up all the time…no they are not too big either as they are tight on my big boned (honest!) frame. The other slightly odd thing about them is at the bottom of the legs the gripper seems to flare slightly so seems baggier than the lycra which just looks wierd!

    Got some old castelli ones that are ace though.

    my enduras are great, though i usually snug them upo to just under my knees, the gripper tension on my ‘huge’ calfs is just too much.

    Another vote for Endura. This time the FS260’s these are for warmer weather but I run hot anyway and when it’s really cold I wear some Northwave leg warmer things underneath. Coming up for their fourth year.
