Morning...nippy outside innit, thinking I should get myself some leg warmers.
Thing is what size and which product?
I'm firmly in the stumpy (ie normal :lol: ) category...inside leg a pitiful barely over 30", but my thighs are around 24". Is that medium/large..can't find measuring guide on the stuff for sale.
Any recommendations?
Cheers
Carl

OMFG That's Olivia Newton Johnn right? Good thing we're one hour ahead on the continent, I've had my tea :wink:

I've got some Kraft leg warmers, nicely warm and solid with the high friction leg gripper edges. I'm 34 or so inseam and mine are size Large, I pick them smallish and they don't sag. I have on occasion used them for running too.

Cyclingwise the Krafts work well for me with baggies, but I don't like em so much with Lycra bibshorts. Cold ar$e warm legs is not for me

Enjoy!!

I'll take the risk of a semi sensible answer.

Cycling legwarmers are great as are kneewarmers (the latter really extend the use of your shorts and protect your knees from the cold when the winter is a bit inbetween). And while we're at it a short sleeve jersey, gilet and armwarmers works most of the year round. Oh, and for the fashion police baggies and tights/legwarmers is a far worse look than Fame legwarmers by a country mile plus you risk getting all that flapping material hoicked up on the saddle. Rigid, proud and clad in lycra is the way forward :shock:

Sorry, can't help you with size though. Perhaps try some on at the LBS? Or is there a size guide on CRC or Wiggle?
