C7 Gore-Tex Infinium Bib Short+
If you're looking for some bottoms that are ideal while peddling through unexpected summer storms and spring showers, have a look at the C7 Gore-Tex Infinium Bib Short+ from Gore Wear. Pairing a slim fit with Gore-Tex Infinium fabric, this bib short will keep you drier, warmer, and more comfortable in wet weather.
Infinium is windproof, extremely breathable, and water resistant. It uses a film-out fabric ensuring rain will bead off, and preventing showers and brief rainstorms from ruining your day. Taped seams throughout offer additional protection against precipitation seeping in.
Something that's immediately noticeable with this bib is its integrated mesh baselayer designed to keeps you warm and wick perspiration. We really like its outward facing zip that helps it dump heat on those extended climbs and the inclusion of two integrated rear pockets increases your storage space. The shorts are finished off with wide, flat elastic grippers at the leg openings that secure the fit and reflective details for 360-degree visibility.
Chamois duties are handled by an Expert Road insert offering support and comfort on long rides. Its complex shape and dense foam construction minimizes chatter and avoids numbness by taking pressure off critical areas. The shapes of the different zones provide optimized rider positioning by rotating the pelvis for a comfortable and efficient contact between the sit bones and saddle. Additional comfort comes by way of the Gore Windstopper Cup Technology. It adds climate control of sorts by remaining highly breathable, yet the pre-formed windproof section at the front of the insert keeps wind-chill off of sensitive body parts.

I live in Florida and these are my winter bibs when the temps drop into the 40ties and 50ties. They provide great wind protection and keep you comfortable on cool Florida winter days You can tell that these are made by a German company catering to western European people and not southern Europeans like most of the Italian brands. They are comfortably long in the torso meaning the shoulder straps don't dig in and you don't feel like being rolled up in a ball. Also, I am a 32/33 waist and could barely squeeze into the 3XL Castelli's whereas a XL Gore fits perfect....and in the Castelli's I felt like the hunch back of Notre Dame..... Don't get me wrong, I love the Castelli brand and design, but they are just not made for my built.
