Originally ordered large, a little too tight for my tastes and exchanged for XL. 6', 185 lbs, 33" waist, 24" thighs fits perfectly and perhaps i dare say a bit roomy. chamois very comfortable. used them a few times and no complaints. looks great too.
Love these pair. bought them based on good reviews. they are very comfortable, support is adequate and hardly bunch up the leg. bought XL, 6', 182lb, 32w.
For whatever reason have not had much success in finding a decent jersey from castelli. wish their jerseys were as comfortable as their bibs.
Do these run small?
I ask because I have two two castelli bibs, one podium and the other Ergo Tre. Both bought were large. However, the podium runs smaller and I would have been better off with an x-Large.
Any feedback would be appreciated
Visually, a very nice bib short. Bought the black/white one with some red on the side. For my size, 6', 180lbs, 33"w, 25" thighs, figured the XL would be good. Large might have been better since it seems to run more to US sizing. Chamois is situated and stitched too far back. Does not give proper support towards the front. Without being crude, need to adjust so no damage is done. The Bib is ok for short rides but would not recommend for longer ones. Bands have no gripping so the shorts easily slide up. Perhaps I should have bought a large so that the thighs would have been more snug but that would have probably made the next issue more of a problem. Have no issue with the straps in terms of comfort. However, they are too short! This ends up pulling up the shorts higher, giving discomfort in the groan area. I do not have a long upper body so this should not happen. Once you start riding, wearing the bib is ok but it should be comfortable before you get on the bike.
Bought the bib as a backup but could not get over how comfortable they felt when riding. straps are wide and nicely fit around frame/shoulders. padding is adequate. i'm 6', 185 lbs and a large works great for me. In terms of price/quality ratio, I'm glad I bought these.
Bought a size L and overall happy with purchase but I have one criticism: the straps of the bib are too narrow and not wide enough. I feel that they bunch up. Perhaps this is because I should have purchased an XL. However, they fit nicely everywhere else. Very comfortable to ride in them and feel like a 2nd skin. Love the fact one can go the bathroom without issue. Colors are versatile so they go well with a variety of different jerseys. Very happy with purchase.
Bought this jersey a little while ago and overall happy with product. I'm 6', 185lbs and bought size XL. Glad I did because a large would have been too tight.
Bought a size medium based on the sizing chart / instructions for measuring. Found the medium to be too tight. According to sizing chart they say to measure the hand from top of middle finger to base of palm where wrist meets hand. Did that and I'm 8" so medium should fit. Wrong! If you got a 4" wide hand which I measured from the base of the thumb and across, go up one size to Large.
Had to exchange for a large and these fit nicely.
