A lot of women don’t like bib tights for reasons of practicality. The tailored eight-panel ﬁt of the Witches Britches and blend of Lycra and 15 percent merino wool keep you cosy, the high-cut back prevents builder’s bum if stretched forward and the elastic waistband is comfy.
Seams are ﬂat-stitched, the cut is to mid shin, the Softail pad is comfortable and anti-bacterial, and the anatomical shaping makes for a far better on-bike ﬁt than many general-use tights. These are tough, quick-drying, very reasonably priced and made in New Zealand.
