These Rapha Women's Winter Tights are designed for those looking to ride in comfort all winter long, no matter what the conditions.
They're made from high quality Italian Thermoroubaix fabric, which has a soft fleecy backing to it for warmth and moisture wicking properties.
The Craft Performance Storm Bib Tights are a well-engineered and nicely thought out garment for your bottom half when the weather is murky.
These don't feel like a winter tight when you pull them on for the first time: the construction isn't heavy and the rear roubaix panels are pretty thin. You even get mesh bibs. However, they feature a full-length windproof insert down the front to keep the chill off when you're riding, so the overall effect is of a more heavyweight set of bibs.
Altura's Ergofit range is their higher end gear that's attempting to steal a portion of the more enthusiast market. We've had a range of kit on test and so far it's been a bit of a mixed bag; the gloves and gilet came out with good marks while the three-quarters fared less well. So what of the longs?
