comfortable and great for hot weather

Unlike Castelli, Hincapie clothes are true to size. A medium fits like a medium should. I?m 5?9? and 143 lbs. and the medium fits perfect. The material is super soft and silky yet still provides compression. The material is also very lightweight and the straps utilize a very wide mesh. Both these things make the Equipe bibshorts great for hot weather. The straps are so airy and light that you barely feel them. It?s like wearing shorts instead of bib shorts but you still get the benefit of bib shorts. These bibshorts are cut low in front which is wonderful. I can actually see my belly button which also makes them good for warm weather and easier for going to the bathroom. One thing that?s hard to tell from some of the photos is that the yellow is a bright almost hi-viz yellow. These are top-shelf bibshorts and they were a steal at $52. I will be buying more Hincapie clothes.
