    Classic.

    The cycling industry is a protean space, to say the least: always innovating, changing, desperate for the next greatest advancement in aerodynamic micro dimpling and—well, you know the story. Regardless of what the marketing machine might claim in order to get our attention, De Marchi's Aerodinamico Men's Bib Shorts remind us that bib shorts can just be bib shorts. Furthermore, the Aerodinamico affirms that the best thing that bibs can do in the saddle is not get our attention; instead, they should disappear once they're on and we're off. We're happy to report that the Aerodinamico does just that.

    That disappearing act is due to the main body composition of a nylon-based synthetic with a 20% Lycra content. It strikes the right balance between gentle compression, confident hold, and breathable ventilation without resorting to the absurdities of construction that turn some cycling shorts into caricatures. Frankly, the Aerodinamico also just looks damned good. Timeless. It's hard to imagine the champions of yesteryear in the "latest and greatest"; however, we can very well picture the likes of Coppi himself wearing these—just like he wore a rainbow jersey made by Elda De Marchi.

    This recipe of simple, classic effectiveness has been De Marchi's defining element since the days when the brand was using actual deer skin for its chamois. The aesthetics may be just as smooth as they were then, but the chamois has certainly changed. It's a far cry from Emilio De Marchi's buttery-soft buckskin model, replacing leather with a multi-density foam core wrapped in an anti-odor microfiber. It's still buttery-soft, but now it's just better at all the things that made the brand's mid-century shorts so popular.

    Just...OK.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I got these on sale big time. While, I do not think they're terrible, the only way to describe them is "meh." I typically wear XL in most Italian brands and ordered the same for this.
    I'm 5'9" 180lbs with only a mild case of Dad-Bod. I wear Santini in size XL and their shorts fit well and about 2" above my knee. The De Marchi in XL are only marginally less snug but go down to the very top of my knee. This is not a bad thing as they provide a bit more sun protection for my legs.
    I will note that the chamois is similar to the GITEvo from Santini in shape but not in padding or texture. I am only able to ride for about 1-2 hours with my schedule so they are acceptable given the price.

    Not as comfortable as I thought

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 120lbs

    I am so disappointed about the comfort of this BIb. I ride a Granfondo last week. My bottom is very uncomfortable in mile 20. Thinking about not getting another De Marchi bib short brand next time. I like Santini and Sportful better. I guess you never know unless you actually try using it. And The product description doesn’t fit the the quality of the product like comfort, for long ride etc.

    One star because there isn't a ZERO

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    De Marchi, worst bibs I've ever had, got rid of them after one ride, will never buy another one of their products. Lousy chamois and quality and the first is the WORST. I've never had a kit with such bad fit, in fact I've never had a kit that had such terrible proportions and don't see how these bibs could fit anyone! The proportions are all wrong. Maybe if you're very short they would be better but even at that the legs were loose, waist tight, and shoulder straps way too short, how could anyone get sizing so wrong?

    Ma-Ma, Fu-Fu "Horse-Horse, Tiger-Tiger"

    That is Chinese for "So-so." I bought these because the sign said
    "Bib shorts for everything from racing to long training rides."
    The "Cham-Wow" pad thing after just 20 miles was a serious disappointment, and I don't think what they said is true at all. I have a very experienced bum and it has been to many places and many countries. Then the advert says, "Chamois supports with multi-density foam." Multi density? What, thin, thin, and cushy?

    I have absolutely no idea who these bibs were designed for because when the clock hits 50 miles you are going to wish you had a real chamois. However, I will add this: The sewing quality in this average at best set of bibs is great. I will not be riding with these again unless I am on my way to the cycle shop to pick up a different pair. On the other hand, I might wear these to a cycling dinner party where the smaller chamois might be a benefit due to long hours of sitting.
