I purchased these pants for cooler weather cycling and thought I'd try for a cheaper brand. I guess you pay what you get for. While the inside pant material is nice and warm, the stitching for the chamois is a huge negative. The seeming on it chafs your skin. In other brands (Terry, Pearl Izumi) you'll see there is no hard stitching around the chamois. They started causing pain around 10miles into my ride. Very dissapointing and cannot return now that I've already worn.

I'm still deciding whether to keep these or send them back. I dismissed other reviewer comments about the chamois, thinking they weren't used to wearing cycling clothes, but it is really bulky. It's a super-unflattering look, but I don't know how obvious that will be on the bike.
The tights themselves are really nice - the lining is soft and feels like it would be warm.

I know the reviews said these were long but I ordered anyway. I'm 5'4" and 124, purchased a Medium. They fit well and were indeed long, but I'm not sure what the fuss is about because I could cinch them up just a little above the knee and a little at the calf and they were fine. They stretch, after all. Love the back zippers. The padding is a bit bulky but really just right for long rides. They are plenty warm and I intend to use them a lot for my winter/spring rides here in Colorado.
“Does anyone know how these compare to the Canari Veloce tights that STP is also selling? The Veloce tights fit me a little oddly, so I'm curious whether these differ. I'm also wondering which pair would be warmer, if there's a difference.”

The type of canair padding is called Queen Chamois and is made from microfiber and foam layers perforated with small 5mm dimples. These dimples provide ventilation, breathability and cushioning for lower extremeties. This cushioning should be good for a comfortable ride for long rides.

These pants are good for 40 degrees and higher. So they may be a little hot for FL.|Unfortunately we are currently out of this item, but we suggest signing up for the My Updates as the best way to monitor incoming products.

Gee, in Oregon that'd be shorts! 45-55Â° is when I wear them.

These are mostly polyester...no mesh....I would say they would be perfect for 50 degree weather but may be too warm in 70 degree Florida humidity. It depends on how hard you will be running or cycling. I bought them for 30 to 50 degree weather in michigan
