Gore Bike Wear Vista SO Tight w/o Insert - Men's - 2008 BCS
When March weather roars like a lion, slide into your GORE Bike Wear Men’s Vista Windstopper Cycling Tights before hopping on your bike. These tights do as advertised—stop the wind in its tracks—so you stay warm. GORE Bike Wear’s Windstopper material also resists water, so you’re covered in light precip, as well. Ankle zippers on these four-panel tights make getting into and out of them easy, and a hidden back pocket holds your key. *Comes with or without a pad.

Just received the tights. Now, I'm a skinny guy -- 5'11 140lbs with a 31" waist. Like the others have noted, the size medium is for someone with a waist smaller than mine. The leg length is perfect, though, about 31". There's no room for anything between the fabric and my skinny legs; these are tights! Currently exchanging it for a large.
As far as quality goes, it looks good. With a windproof front and breathable back, they're similar to the ones (not Gore) I'd worn out that these will replace. They have many separate panels that seem to allow for ease of movement despite its tighter fit. The 8.5" wide zippers at the cuffs have a 0.5" reflective strip their entire length. Finally, there's a tiny zippered rear pocket, good for a key, or a rolled up couple of bills, but not both!
I'm looking forward to using these for the rest of the cold mornings this Spring up here in New Hampshire.
