It turned out that those tights weren't what I wanted - although the description says "Santini Techno Comfort Coolmax chamois padding", they don't have any padding at all, just a seam between the legs. Basically, they look a lot like a close fitting pair of tracksuit trousers, since they're made out of some kind of fleecy material. (In fairness, the term "thermofleece" probably should have been a hint!) Anyway, I emailed them yesterday to sort out the return; since their description was wrong, hopefully they'll be willing to reimburse my postage, but they haven't replied yet. (I also need to return the base layer, since XL was too big, so it will be simplest if I can stick them both in the same package.)

In the meantime, I've ordered some Shimano Windflex tights as a replacement. Hopefully they'll be more suitable, i.e. lycra rather than fleece and padded so that I don't need to wear shorts underneath. 50% off seems like a good deal, although I wouldn't pay £90 (the full price), so I'm not actually saving any money. Sizing is a bit tricky; I've gone for "L" this time, but it would help if there was a chart somewhere...
