    I definitely prefer without, that way I can layer more easily, plus they cost much less.

    I can even wear them for non-cycling activities, which makes it a better value IMO.

    I do have a pair winter bibs with. They are okay. But I wouldn't do it again.
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    I truly love my Terry tights with chamois because they seem to work in a wide range of temperatures and they are petite in length. I wish they had the same version without a chamois because I am going to wear them out washing them so often!

    I just cut the chamois off a pair of tights and like them better now.
    Oil is good, grease is better.

    X2 for me. I don't like the feeling of 2 waistbands digging into my tummy. I also had the problem of tights sliding down on me and would end up having to wear suspenders to keep them up because the material from wearing shorts underneath them was too slippery and caused the tights to slide down. Could just be an issue with the combination I was wearing, but I finally got so frustrated with it, that I switched over to wearing padded tights last winter and haven't looked back. The most comfortable for me are the PI Thermal cycling tights and for slightly milder conditions, the PI Select cycling tights.
