These are 1 hour Bibs
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nice fitting but very thin poor quality uncomfortable chamois. 1-hour max Bibs. Probably ideal for mountain biking but not suitable for the road. I'm going to try to return them.

Nice light bib, but poor chamois quality
- Size Bought:
- 5' 9"
I purchased this bib shorts as I wanted to try the POC. Although it fits well, I'm a little concerned about the chamois. There simply isn't much padding and it looks cheaply made. I'll return with feedback. Well... I went for a long 87 mile ride (to NYC) today and these shorts were good for the first 35-50 miles. The last 30+ miles, was a bit uncomfortable in the saddle. The bib shorts fit fairly nicely, but my fears were confirmed. I'll probably look at one of the other or more expensive POC bib shorts.

Nice light bib
- I've put it through the wringer
- 5' 9"
Very nice and very light bib with good compression. I would say runs a tad bit small but you start to forget about it after a few rides. I have a 29 hips and bought small.
