The tights came quick but we're too small. The size guide is not right. I've since got another pair size L which are fine. I'm 5 ft 8", 32 in waist. The tights are great but go one or TWO sizes up from what the guide says. Vanilla bikes did the refund quickly and are good to deal with.
I tested these with a 4 hour ride in a cold east wind and with about an hour of steady rain. They passed with flying colours, warm and comfortable and kept most of the water out. When the ride was over, there was some dampness in the crotch and knee areas but I had not felt this until the end. I suggest ordering a size up unless you like them really tight. I am 6 feet tall with 34" waist and the extra large fits me perfectly. I think I am going to enjoy wearing them throughout the winter.
