New Knickers thread...

Now that cooler weather is here, I can start wearing my foot pajama comfy, thermal Voler bib knickers. They're just about too hot for the 79 degree afternoons. Which raises a "knicker" question that I've been wondering about: who carries a high quality, affordable bib knicker in a lighter fabric that could be ridden on warmer days.

I was going to suggest Ibex El Fito wool bib knickers, and when I googled, I found that you can buy them at Walmart! I don't have the bibs, but I do have a set of the El Fito knickers, bought back in the spring for cheap from Modern Bike. I actually haven't worn them yet, but our weather is just right for them now here in New England.

Walmart lists a lot of stuff on their site that is sold by "partners." They don't actually stock it themselves.
