Warm legs, more miles.
You've collected the perfect protective wardrobe of thermal jackets, gloves, shoe covers, and leg warmers and are ready to tackle winter base miles, until you actually get out there and realize you've missed an important piece of the puzzle — your shorts. Regular bib shorts leave a rather large patch of sensitive skin vulnerable to the chill, and just won't cut it when the temperatures plunge. Avoid frostbite and frozen nethers with the new Craft Men's Shield Bib Shorts, boasting cozy, wind-blocking protection for any winter ride adventure.
Like the rugged yet remarkably fluffy pallas cat, these bib shorts are built to weather the winter with ease. The windproof and water-repellant Body Control fabric in these shorts provides comfortable support with four-way stretch while fending off the elements with cloud-like brushed thermal softness. Craft adds silicone print at the leg bands to prevent slipping and avoid the unappealing pinching often found with standard elastic bands, resulting in clean lines and full-coverage warmth when paired with a good set of leg warmers.
The Shield Bib Shorts include Craft's top-end Infinity C1 chamois, featuring a seamless design that nearly eliminates friction. Its lazer-cut, multi-thickness, high-density foam provides impact protection while perforations provide ventilation to move moisture away from the body and prevent clammy chamois time. Craft incorporates wide swaths of reflective print across the leg bands and additional reflective detailing for a stylish look that drastically increases visibility to motorists in low-light and dreary winter conditions.

Very good product, the linning does a good job to maintain the heat in the body. Its a very good piece to be used in my brazilian winter (around 57F) . The bands is thigt, but very confortable in riding position. The silicon leg grip maintain the bib in the right position. Run small. The fabric quality is very good, the chamois confortable.

Chamois doesn't extend far enough forward and the bands at the bottom of the legs are too tight for my taste. It's difficult to get these bibs on with these tight bands and the silicon on the inside. Disappointing since otherwise the material and quality look very good.
