    Comfort is king.

    The Sportful Men's Super Total Comfort Bib Shorts offer the best in muscle support, moisture-wicking performance, and padding for long days in the saddle. This premium short forgoes a traditional knit fabric in favor of a stretch woven with 29% Lycra. By doing so, it increases muscle support and moisture-wicking comfort, both of which are crucial when you're touring long distances and besting your previous century ride time. And although this stretch woven fabric is thin, it actually provides increased coverage with 30% less weight than a comparable knit.

    Featuring the most padded chamois in Sportful's lineup, this bib short has an integrated Total Comfort Chamois for maximum padding and comfort. This chamois uses continuously variable closed cell urethane foam that ramps up to 18-millimeters at its thickest point, combating saddle soreness and fatigue on the longest rides.

    Helping to combat sweat build-up along the lower back, a mesh insert was added for a cool, airy feel when you're pushing your limits. Its flat leg gripper uses a silicone dot pattern to prevent the short from riding up. There's also a radio/media pocket located at the back bib for storing your favorite media player. Other features include 2 to 1 flat woven bib straps for a secure, pinch-free fit, as well as flatlock stitching to reduce irritation and chafing on longer rides. Oh yeah, we forgot to mention that this bib short was crafted in Italy with superior attention to detail.

    Not for everyone, but right for me

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    As a skinny arsed old dude, I can't say I have ever found the perfect shorts. No matter what I wear some days I'm getting a bit squeezed by the end of a 25-30 mile ride on mixed road surfaces. The best shorts, such as the long distance version of Assos, or the FR Giordana, have been the closest to letting me ride pain free. In recent years I've taken to adding a thin padded undershort such as the Pearl Izumi version. When I saw the name of these shorts, you can imagine I was game to try them. I think its sufficient to say, they are as good or better than the others mentioned, time will tell.

    Fit wise, they tend to run a tad smaller (more compressive?) than the Giordana, and are as tight as I would like to experience in a "L" (I'm 6 foot 165 lbs.), even around my skinny legs, so be advised on that count, if you tend to look like Spartacus.

    sportful tc bibs

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    I wore these super comfort bibs once after receiving them from B.C. . They are light for summer and compress your muscles just enough but from me sweating in the summer heat I noticed the lower part of the bibs bleed through with salt staining from your body. it gave me the impression of being cheap as I never experienced this with my Gore Bike Wear bibs. it did however wash out so I was very happy for that. The padded chamois was grat as I did a 40 mile group event ride and didn't experience any discomfort.

    solid but unforgiving straps

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    The bib is great on hot days. If I could split this rating into two parts I would. I think the chamois and overall fit around the legs are 5-star good, but the straps are rigid. For many people I wouldn't expect this to be a problem, but at 6'3" whenever I stand-up upright it feels like someone is softly pushing down on my shoulders. Though not ideal off the bike, I don't notice this issue at all when in the saddle. Also the mesh straps take an extra second or two to flatten out. I haven't had any issues with them bunching up or twisting once initially sorted.

    New favorites

    • Size Bought: Large

    I seem to keep reaching for these bibs as my first choice. They fit me just right - they have the perfect amount of padding, compression, leg length and strap width/comfort. I like that they aren't a "shiny" lycra - more of a dull finish to the fabric and they seem to be wearing really well.

    Great Bibs for Long Distance

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I usually do a weekly century + or 200k + brevets and these are the most comfortable bibs for all day riding I have ever used. And I use and love Assos, Capo and LG's, but these are a notch above for distance riding. I have been riding the Total Comfort Bibs which were great but these are even better. They have just a bit more compression which I like, they are light weight, the legs stop an inch or so above the knee and they stay in place with no rubbing or chafing.

    As far as the pad....its the best I've used, including my current Assos Equipe's. Some may think it too much but I've use thick pads in the past which feel thick and get bunched. These feel just right and have the most padding where needed for long days in the saddle.

    Not sure why more people don't use these.

    Really like these bibs

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Having now put in a few rides on this, i have to say these are one of my favorite bibs (also own Assos, Castelli, Rapha). For me, these have perfect amount of compresssion, chamois is super comfortable, bib straps stay firmly in place, and the fabric is very light. I'd say on par with similarly priced bib shorts i own. if these ever went on sale, i'd pounce to maybe pick up another pair or two. i'm 6'2", 210lbs - i don't have tree trunks for thighs so perhaps why they might fit better than the reviewer below.

    A bit tight and maybe too much padding

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    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.

    I'm 5'4" and about 120lb what size would be good for me and what would the inseam be in that size.

    This may or may not be helpful to you...I'm 5'8.5", 32.5" waist, 160lbs. I wear size large in these bibs and they're close to perfect. Inseam length is approximately 10", about 1" above my knee standing, bit shorter on the bike. One of my favorite bibs.

    How long are the legs on these? Has anyone measured them? Are they longer than than last years total comfort shorts? I have heard they are very short.
