Nice and warm, but let down by a weird waist cut

Tights are nice, warm and mostly comfortable. The issue I have with them is the weird cut of the waist — they go quite high at the back, which in theory means they would keep your lower back warm, but in practice it means the elastic is not really round and they don't really hold very well to your waist, so they constantly creep down. It almost feels like they're intended to try to force you to switch to bib tights.

Feeble zip

My wife bought me these online just before Christmas. First time one zip burst open, tried for a second time, just can’t close zip, pretty useless Enquired at Stockport today and told find your delivery note or email and send them back. Sorry didn’t keep them Would not recommend. £30 for nothing

Thank you for your feedback regarding this zip. We identified this fault following customer feedback and the items were removed from sale. the replacement garments have been made with a completely new zip and the fault is now rectified. Rest assured that all store and online stock is now fit for sale and I see no reason why you can't have this item replaced.

Poor quality zips

Good quality tight ruined by a poor quality zip. Starts off stiff, then broke on the third use. Returned for a refund.

Thank you for your feedback. I have informed our quality control team of your comments.
Please accept my apology for the inconvenience caused.

Broken zip

Broken zip on first use unfortunately - otherwise fit well and seems like a good pair of cycling tights. Check the zips before buying.

Thank you for your comments. I will forward them on immediately to the quality control team in charge of these tights.

Poor quality Zip

The zip on this is a nightmare. It started to become undone at the top and was a nuisance to keep joining it back together. Now the zip just splits even when it’s done.

I'm sorry to read that a zip at one of the the ankles is faulty. Please return the item to us for a refund or and exchange.

Affordable & Comfy cycling tights

Comfortable padded cycling tights. Didn't use them in real cold weather but suppose they will be fine for a minimum temp of 7-10 degrees centigrade.

does what it says

This is good tight for cold temperature have been using it for about a regular two hour ride between 1 and 5 degrees c and does the job for me.The zipper at the bottom of the legs are a plus.

Dear Sir,
This is indeed a great product. I use the same model and wore it during the Tour of Flanders (145km) last year and use them during a weekly 50 mile club run.
Thanks for sharing your experience of the tights with us.
