    Bib Tights for a big guy

    I have tried a number of bib tights for winter riding, but none of them fit well. They're designed for tiny people. I've also tried leg-warmers that were just silly -- I have some Campagnolo leg warmers that I use for arm warmers. Any recommendations for bib-tights and leg warmers for the bigger guy? I'm 6'2", and I have a 36 to 38 inch waist, and rather huge thighs.

    i'm 5'10 and weigh 205.. my waist is 34/35 and my thighs are rather large as well.... I use pearl izumi tights and they seem to fit well. i guess i should clarify that statement... they fit great in the thigh/lower leg section, but they are alittle big in the waist section. I've got bib's on my christmas list... could you tell me how or why they don't fit right? is it b/c of your height?

    Im about your size

    6'1 36-38 waist...now about 210lbs....hit a plateau. Anyhow.....Pearl Izumi tends to cater to the 'American sized' cyclist. Alot of clothing companies take into acount european roadies. That said Im using a set of Giordana Tenax bibs with windproof fronts size Large. I like my bibs thight...no fabric bunching up. I love them! I'm thinking of getting a second pair so i dont have to do the wash each time i ride. You might be a xlarge. Check out Pearl Izumi Gavia bibs....I got their jacket and i love it. I wigh they had the tights in stock when i ordered.
