Where: Hot weather padded long tights
« on: January 31, 2024, 03:09:28 pm »

During my last trip through the Mojave and Sonoran desert I used some lycra UV sun protective leg protectors. They were an add-on to my cycling shorts and covered my legs all the way to the ankles. It worked but I would like an "easier" setup.

Therefore: Where can I get some good quality padded (chamois) cycling tights WITHOUT suspenders/braces covering the entire length of my legs and for summer conditions? I can only find versions with suspenders.

Probably not what you're looking for, but for those hot sunblasted conditions I usually go with a pair of triathlon shorts (look on Amazon, they are reasonably priced) and very lightweight pair of runner's tights (Brooks Running and Sporthill have good options at reasonable prices).

The tri shorts really shine in hot weather since they vent well and dry out very quickly.  Highly recommended.
