After 10 rides and 8 washings, very solid performance and things seem to fit and be far more comfortable then right from package. Last ride was 3+ hours of saddle time, no overshorts, hot weather. Very comfortable chamois, leg grippers worked flawlessly, and although these bibs are warm with the extra "back", they seem to be very comfortable and perform well. Still not quite 5-star b/c I'd like to see flatter stitching, but in fairness it's not an issue. Again warmer bibs, think pockets and multi layer, so not for super sunny hot conditions, I'd say up to 85 fahrenheit as estimate. By the way the thigh pocket is exceptional in holding a wallet, keys, and totally comfortable during ride and secure, well thought out. ........... This is amendment #1 to my previous review. I up'd the stars to 4-stars. After a couple MTB rides, in wetter and cold conditions, I'm happy to report the more upright riding, washing once, and better adjustment, no "bunching" on the chamois, and I think the bibs, although warmer, have a solid place in the chamois arsenal. I like the 11" inseam, I'm a taller person. I wore overshorts and that really reduced the bibs "slippery" on the leather seat as expected. I also wore a backpack and am happy to report the wider back with zipper pocket etc. showed zero interference and zero discomfort with a backpack. I may have been a bit harsh at 3 stars, If this product continues to hold up well, I believe it'll be performing as well as the big brand names that you pay a bit more for.

Thanks for that review. Super detailed! It helped me make a decision regarding these bibs


Are these bibs meant for wear as liners under shorts, or can they be worn by themselves?

Hey Kevin, these can be worn either way!
