Tights for short slim man only 5 feet-3"

Postby small_bloke » Wed Nov 07, 2012 17:43 pm

I need some winter tights for a short man.

My "friend" is only
5 feet-3" (160cm tall).
Waist 28"
30-inch Inside leg
Weight 52kg

Yes, he is very slight.

He tried the dhb Pace Roubaix 2012 bib tights, size x-small from Wiggle but this was still too long (even though the size chart says it should fit).

Size chart says 4'11" - 5'3".

Could somebody suggest anything else? He uses knee warmers at the moment but would like something longer when it gets really cold. I would like to buy him a nice xmas present.

A possibility of leg warmers may also suffice.

Try Sportful - they go down to XS. I'm a touch taller and happily use Castelli in size small (Castelli are owned by Sportful)
Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

I have similar problems with bib tights and these from 2XU are the only ones I haven't had to fold up at the bottom http://www.westbrookcycles.co.uk/clothing-c7/tights-c54/2xu-thermal-sub-zero-bib-tights-p208758
