What Leg warmers

What leg warmers are you all wearing? I am tired of being cold in the morning!


My thigh is about 29" for reference and the ones I look at online are not giving great sizing info.

thanks

I have a pair of pearl izumi that I hate... keep sliding down, and a pair of giordana that I love because they stay put. They're pretty flexy in terms of accomodating leg size.

I have a pair of Gore Bike Wear. They seem to work fine. but I rarely use them except to keep in my bag for "just incase" or when I am touring.

I have a pair from Aerotech and they work well. I think they were under $30
I am 6’6” and they’re long enough, if that matters.

I have a pair of Nashbar Essential XL. Both zippers blew out within 3 months, so I sewed along the fabric part of the zippers. Can't put them on over shoes, but they go over bare feet no problem. For as often as I wear them in the winter, I'll probably spring for some better ones soon.

Length isn’t my worry its the thigh size. I like aerotec but sizing is something I can not get a straight answer from them on. They say xxxl but most brands xl bibs fit me perfect a bit snug but good.
