I bought these for cool weather FallSpring rides. They have been just right for me for temps down to the low 40's, really comfortable, and the stretch is just right. The stretchy mesh around the knees works really well. I really like the reflective accents which make me more visible at night. I am a slender 6'-0 with a 32 waist and normally wear a medium, but Garneau's size chart lists a small for 32. I tried them but they were too tight, so I opted for a medium which was just right. They really work well over a regular pair of bike shorts. I have ridden about 500 miles in them and they show no signs of wear in the seat area, so they seem like a very good piece of gear.
