    I recently got the tights and long sleeve shirt. At first I had my doubts as they are thicker (douible layered) than what I am used to using as a baselayer. BUT no worries!!

    They are very well made and comfortable. I am very heat intolerant but have managed rides going from 48F to 98F (6am local mountains to Borrego Springs in the desert) in the same day in the same gear (non-vented full leathers). At 98F I found it helped to unzip the jacket a little for a minute or so - I think it felt good as it increased the evaporative cooling from sweating.

    Also - I had several long email replies from customer service when going through the paranoia that is ordering the correct size online first time out!

    I'd definitely order again - Wolfhound

    Thought I'd try their undies since I live in Texas and it is hotter than hell right now. Went on a 200 mile ride today in temperatures that ranged from 95 to 100. These are better than advertised. I was wondering if my purchase was worth it......yes, without a doubt. Want a t-shrit now. If you ride in hot weather do your butt and cajones a favor, spend the money and keep 'em cool.

    We make the tights with long legs. There should be plenty of length for your long legs. I am 6' 1" with most of it being legs. I weigh about 220 so I wear the x-Large but still you should be fine. Just make sure to measure your waist with a tape measure to get the correct size. If you need an adjustment for length just contact us and we will help you figure it out. Thanks-so-much!

    I'd sure like to post this on our website so others can read about the truth of our advertising. Amazing how the cooling system works in 107 degrees. I have only tested that technique to 120 degrees but it worked well then too.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I bought some shorts and tights for a 10 day trip for my husband and myself (I ride too). We loved them - cold when we started and really hot at the VA moto guzzi rally. My very frugal husband thanked me many times for overriding him and buying them.

    With the colder weather coming (here) know that the long sleeve shirts and tights are supreme for those who dare ride in winter weather.

    I have the comfort shorts for men. Only thing I don't like is how tight the fit is around my thighs. After awhile it really bugs me feeling the shorts pressuring my thighs. Waist area fits fine.
    I'm a average guy, not a body builder, just wish the shorts were wider at the thigh area. Otherwise a nice product

    Here is a head's up for this group. Be the first to know that LDComfort has their Comfort Cool Sleeves on sale at a 32% discount. You can use these to help keep you cool when it is 120 degrees or to help keep you warm in the winter. Quick on and off makes the Cool Sleeves a handy accessory for any tank bag.

    Mario,
    I ordered a pair of shorts and tights Monday and have them already this Wednesday in Georgia. Great Service. One question, are you supposed to wear the shorts under the long tights? I have an enduro ride this weekend most likely in wet conditions.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    The LDComfort Riding Shorts are our most popular garment. The Riding longs or tights are often used by riders doing multiple long distance rides in all kinds of weather. The long version gives you protection all the way to the ankles. I have to admit I used my LDComfort Riding Shorts under a pair of LDComfort Riding Tights when I was sitting on metal bleachers during a winter football game. One a bike ride I never do that. On a longer ride of 1000-1500 miles in a day I wear the long version. In temperatures of 120 degrees I wear the long version.

    Comfort you can count on when every mile counts.

    Quick question:

    I own an 08RT with the standard seat and add when necessary an airhawk and alaska sheepskin by themselves or a combination of the two depending on the distance I travel and still get a sore butt after about 300+ miles.

    It sounds like these would help, just curious if they replace the need for the airhawk/sheepskin?

    I've been thinking of dropping the big coin on a Russell Day Long....

    Any and all input will be appreciated!

    THANKS,

    On the surface, $45 underwear and a $500 seat seem pricey. That said, I think they're worth every penny!:raabia

    IMHO, the LDComfort will definitely help. They probably won't replace your need for the Airhawk or sheepskin- that's asking the shorts to overcome all of your seat's shortcomings- not entirely reasonable.

    I wear the LDComfort regularly. With my Russell (leather top) I can ride all day (a little over 800 miles is my longest day, but 500 miles is more typical) and not get a sore butt. I no longer find much need to shift around in the seat, and I never have to switch weight between cheeks to get relief from a sore rear any more.

    I can get tired, stiff, etc.- but my butt won't be sore!

    Both of these products have worked well for me. Based on my experience, I would recommend them to anybody!
