Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Chapeau! Soulor Thermal women's bib tights do exactly what they set out to do – they're a simple, flattering and reliable pair of tights. There's nothing that sets them apart as being excellent, but I could ride in them for hours and completely forget about them, and they'll certainly do the job if you're looking for a pair of winter bib tights to keep you warm during those off-season miles.

Chapeau! is well known for its brightly coloured, often boldly patterned and noticeably stylised kit – but the Chapeau! Soulor Thermal women's bib tights represent a departure from that. Which is a good thing, because a go-to pair of bib tights needs to be warm, reliable, and ideally able to blend with any chosen jacket or jersey.

Created from a mixture of polyamide (66 per cent), elastane (18 per cent) and polyester (16 per cent), the Soulor Thermal bib tights consist of a pleasantly stretchy exterior which hints at the promised slim fit in store for their wearer, and a brushed fleece interior.
