Quality looks good, thought I'd put in a note on size
on November 16, 2012
I just received these, so this review is not based on actual use, but I thought I'd provide some input with regards to SIZING.
I'm 6'2" and at 220lbs, ...roughly 20lbs overweight (when I was competing in 400m in college I had significantly bigger thighs but weighed in at 200lbs being otherwise quite skinny). Current jeans that fit me (Levi's) have size waist 36", inseam 33" (when I can get it, or I wear 34") 'Solid' build in the legs but not huge...
Calf 45cm or 17.7 inches, thigh 61cm (24 inches)
The size XL fits well, though quite snug around the lower calves/ankles. I hesitated between L/XL since sizing is all over the place in cycling/running gear, and I wanted something not too roomy as it is my goal to work up to a triathlon next year and in the process shave off those extra pounds... It seems to be that even with 20lbs less, I should not go down to size Large.
Bottomline is that for someone with my physique, XL is the size to go with - certainly not smaller! I ordered leg, knee, arm warmers, all in XL and they fit nice and snug, but definitely not too tight.
I hope this helps. The quality looks good. Good luck to y'all.
