These leg warmers are great. I wore them recently in moderate rain in about 50-55 degree weather on my 10 mile communte to work. While they are not waterproof and didn't keep my legs necessarily dry, my legs were warm due to the wicking action of the interior fleece. My only criticism is the sizing issue. I'm 5'6", 130lbs, female with an athletic frame. I tried on a medium and the upper leg elastic was way too tight. I ended up getting the large and they fit much better. This may be Pearl Izumi sizing. I've tried their tights and found the mediums to be much too snug.

Slippage: Most leg warmers have grippier gripper elastic at the tops. These have a soft felty kind. It's cozy, but they slip downwards until you get a good sweat going. Lycra shorts worn over them (the standard way to wear) helps, but they are still frustrating. (see below)

Fit: Try before you buy, or before you remove tags! I am built like a typical cyclist. The thigh portion is too tight, and the knees are baggy. This contributes to slippage. These should be labelled "straight cut" like jeans. I want "athletic fit" or "standard cyclist." I have a sewing machine, so I will be making some modifications.

Function: They are warm for their weight. They wick moisture well enough. They block wind well. When soaking wet in the rain ... well, nothing feels good then, but they help. The zippers are mildly difficult to get started open, but the pulls are bigger than on my old pair. The zippers are on the sides. I wonder if crashing on the zipper might hurt, but this is a minor concern.

I was biking late into fall and wanted to wear shorts and keep my legs warm, so I got these. Kept legs warm, but over time they slip down. I looked and looked for a solution to prevent this (stickum on my legs?), and finally found one: garter belts.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not a cross dresser. What I tripped over were manly Hocker garters sold right here on Amazon: "Pro Guard Hockey Garter Belt [SENIOR]".

The only problem with these is that the waist was way to tight - so I went to hardware store and got some 2" (I think) velcro and made an extension. While it sort of felt odd attaching the garters to the leggings, they worked perfectly. I did a 6 hour ride up and down the Hudson river without incident.,

If someone has a better suggest for keeping them up I'm all ears. This product works great to keep your legs warm - they just don't stay up on long rides.

PS: my wife got a pair too as we ride together. She already had a garter belt to use :-)

These are very warm, the outside is a smoother slick material but the inside is a very soft warm fleece. Im about 5.6 and on the thin side and the mediums fit very well, not too tight. They go most of the way up the leg, which is good and the elastic is strong, dont need frequent adjustment, but they dont cut off circulation. I found that if i wear them on top of my shorts they tend to pull them down, so i fold my short over the warmers instead, which i think helps keep them from pulling down. The knees are good, they dont bother me on the back of my knee. I need to get the arm warmers to match.

While I manage to make these leg warmers work, it is too difficult of a process for my liking. If your're familiar with Pearl iZUMi products, I think you'll find these to be not up to par for thei typical quality. They really teeter on "three-star" quality for me, but that rating always seems harsh relative to my methods of assessing.

Basically, the primary issues with these it simple: they don't stay. I tried a medium pair at first, which is the size for ALL other Pearl iZUMi products I wear. However, the medium definitely didn't fit. After returning them, I gave a small a shot. The smalls suffice, but they require frequent re-adjustment while riding. Inevitably, they slowly begin to slide down my legs.

The provlem doesn't seem to be an issue of sizing, considering they're borderline too tight. It seems to be in the way they're cut and designed. If I really play with them prior to a ride, I can manage to get them tightly tucked under my shorts, and then they will sometimes stay put throughout most of a ride. However, that really requires much more work than I like. Since you typically wear tights for col weather, having a faulty pair only lends to the discomfort and frustration that often comes with cold-weather riding.

[Update: January 9th, 2013. After further usage and "testing," I have become more and more frustrated with these leg warmers. They rarely stay on, and they require constant readjustment. No matter what combination of clothing I wear or how I wear it (e.g. shorts over warmers, warmers over shorts, warmers with tights underneath, etc... etc...), the warmers will not stay up. This proved especially annoying on my first true winter ride. On a freezing and snowy winter day, I had to constantly deal with these warmers for 23 miles. every mile, I'd find myself having to stop and pull them all the way back up.]

I had the same problem of many of the other reviewers in that the leg warmers didn't stay up when I walked or rode my bike. I tried putting my cycling shorts over the top to help hold them up, and while this helped some, I still found them sagging down around my knees when I rode more than a short distance.

My soultion was to use Velcro, the iron on version to hold them up. The sew on version of Velcro would probably work just as well, but will show more from the outside of your bike shorts. I used the one half inch wide tape with the hook part on one side and the fuzzy felt on the other side. It is widely available at most sewing stores and on line (including Amazon).

Iron on abour a two inch length of the hook side of the tape to the outside top of each leg warmer. Putting each piece just behind the seam on each side. Use a cotton pressing cloth to prevent melting the elastic as shown in directions for the Velcro Iron on Tape. Next stick a matching two inch lenght of the Velcro felt to the hook pieces you just afixed to the leg warmers. Put the leg warmers on making sure they are straight with the L (left leg) and R (right let) centered on the back of each leg. Now put your bike shorts on over the leggings in a comfortable position. Using a pin (safety or straight pin), pin the felt part of the velcro to your bike shorts from the outside to mark the position. Be careful to pin only the felt part of the Velcro and not both parts. Take off the shorts, being careful to seperate the Velcro one by one so that they do not come loose from the pins. Then turn the shorts inside out, mark the position of each piece and iron on the Velco. After they have cooled they are ready to wear.

First put the leggings on and then the shorts, make sure the velcro on the leggings lines up with the Velcro on the shorts. If they don't line up, make sure the leggings are on straight and not twisted. Attach each of the four velco fasterners on your shorts to the Velcro on the tops of your leggings. They are very easy to put on once you have the Velcro installed. The Velcro is barely visible from the outside of your bike shorts. They will stay up now and not slide down.

Have a good ride and keep warm.

I really want to like this product, but it's just not working out. As others mentioned, the main problem is the top elastic doesn't hold the leg warmers up when walking. They don't even stay up very well with tight rubber bands at the top. This could just be a inherent design flaw for anything that doesn't secure at the waist.

They're warm and comfortable, although that really doesn't mean much if they keep sliding down. The wearer may as well not even bother if they have to jimmy-rig some intricate multiple layer of clothing system while tucking another pair of shorts in and providing their own elastic. Truly disappointed.

this leg warmer even at size Small is not holding up to its name brand. the constant inconvenience that one has to keep it from sliding down your leg --by pulling it up after some short walking -- defeats its usefulness. I spend more time paying attention to its up-down position (w/r to my thigh) than I enjoy the benefit of its keeping my leg warm & comfy. Maybe it helps your bicycling more than it does warm your leg otherwise. But I even doubt that commercial purport even though the fabric quality seems up to par with other good products. Not recommended for general purpose!!

Fast shipping but the product is not well structured, the leg warmers always fall down when I wear them at daytime. Therefore I have to insert another rubber band by myself and make them tight. Generally, they are comfortable and warm. Modest recommendated !Pearl iZUMi Thermal Leg Warmer

I use these on my bike rides when temperatures are in the 30's or running around the same temp. They work well. The only issue would be that they can have the tendency to slide down so I have to pull them back up every so often. Other than that though, worth what I paid.
