Strange fit. Maybe I got a lemon. These bibs had too long of an inseam. They were touching the back of my knee and I returned them because on every pedal stroke, I could feel the fabric moving against my hamstring tendons. I don't believe I was in too large of a size because they were pretty tight on my thighs. I have used about 10 other kinds of bibs and never had this issue with any of them.

Beware: I take a L in some bibs and in this one even an XL wasn't large enough. Didn't ride them, but sitting on the rollers for a couple of minutes made it feel like the chamois was bunching up a little. Overall workmanship *looked* maybe a little under par for bibs of this price, though as I say, I never actually rode them.

Without actually riding in these, they look good and look like good quality. The chamois feels good and contains decent padding. Unfortunately they run a bit small so I had to return mine. And then I found out that Castelli recommends putting sun lotion underneath them, so I just switched to a different brand -- I do a lot of long rides on the weekend and there was no way I was going to want or remember to put lotion on before putting the bibs on.

Got a recommendation for these and liked them. Chamois was great for my maiden 70 mile ride. Unfortunately my riding buddies informed me during that ride that they could see way too much of my anatomy when drafting behind me. I've noticed other bibs like that, but usually they are not new. I guess in the manufacturers' quest for light and cool, this is a potential pitfall.

Straps seemed a little tight when standing, but felt fine when riding. Possibly runs a bit small, but probably just the compression that made it seem that way to me.

Really liked the fit and padding in these, but they ripped between seams the fourth time I pulled them on. But I liked them enough that I exchanged these for another of the same. Hopefully the first pair were just a lemon.

Possibly run a bit small, but I think that's just because they provide more compression than other bibs I've had.
