The Pearl Izumi Men's AmFib Cycling Bib Tight is that ultimate tight everyone needs that can get them out the door when the mercury dips. In building these, Pearl Izumi combined their latest generation AmFIB® softshell and Thermal fleece fabric for a superior fit.
AmFIB softshell covers and protects the front of the leg, the seat and the Achilles tendon areas from the elements. Raw-edge bib straps reduce bulk and improve comfort, while new pockets in the rear provide storage for items like gloves and extra nutrition. PI Dry® permanent water repellent technology sheds precipitation and helps keep the dual-density Levitate™ Plus chamois dry.
BioViz® reflective elements appear on the back of the calves, high enough for visibility above any shoe covers or booties, as well as on the hip.

Be forewarned - if you own previous versions of these bibs, they are NOT as warm as earlier iterations when worn alone. I was surprised and disappointed to find this out in my first ride with them, that they struggled to keep my legs warm on a road bike ride once the mercury dipped below 40deg Fahrenheit, even with non-stop pedaling. They don't block the wind as well either, you can feel a fair amount of it through the AmFIB, including the crotch area.
You'll still need to size up over your normal waist size to get them up to your waist. Fit is snug, but not unduly binding and they require some work to get past the knees, but it's not horrible. While the chamois has been beefed up, it's bulky and I found myself shifting around on my saddle too much because of it and it doesn't really add much in the way of comfort over previous versions.
This tight replaced an older version that I have had for about 6 years. Rode a couple of times in 40 degree temps and was plenty warm. I am 5ï¿½11 165 and the large fit well although the straps could have a little more stretch. Fabric had more stretch but is still stiffer than just the thermal tights, pad was comfortable on 30-40 mile gravel rides.
