Ordered a variety of bib shorts & chose this one. After a wash before wearing, I took these for a hot, humid 22 mile ride this morning & they were comfy the whole way. I assume they'll perform well over longer days in the saddle too. The fabric on these is the softest of any bib shorts I own. And the chamois design—though different than most—works as well as it is advertised to do. The leg openings are soft with grippers on the inside; still rode up my slender legs a bit but much nicer for me than the Pearl Izumi Elite Pursuit bibs. (Read my reviews for those too.)

These bibs look & feel slick. The main fabric has a checkered pattern. The leg openings are an inch wide rubber band. And they're stitched with silver (which I assume is reflective). And they're thin, light-weight bib portion is nice too. Even as nice as they are, I'm choosing another brand that fits me just that little bit better.

Not unlike the older version I tried as well, the 10" legs are just too wide near the knee & stick out some. Also, they've got an inch wide rubber band sewn on the hem with gripper stuff on it. These bibs are well-made, but you'd need to be taller & have wider legs than me to have them fit just right.

Ordered these shorts with a few others, but will be returning these. Felt the need to write a review none-the-less. These are so soft & comfortable. Well constructed too. Yet the 10" legs had openings that were just too wide for my legs. They weren't really baggy, but they did stick out. My legs near the knee just aren't thick enough. So, either you need to be taller than me at 5'9" with longer inseam of 32" or have tree trunk legs.

Pearl Izumi makes great kit. This piece further confirms that. Light, thin, comfy, & sharp looking. I love it.

Their Elite line is worth paying a bit more.

Although this one is "Elite Escape" and not "Elite Pursuit" (designed to be more race fit), it does fit snug and the arm cuffs are small enough not to be flapping around. So, you get a race fit without the race price. ;-)

I'm 5'10", 150lbs, 36" chest, & 30" waist and this top fits like it was tailored for me. Love it.

I've been a Sugoi fan for a dozen years as an all-weather runner for a decade and now a cyclist for two years. This is my third pair of Sugoi bibs in that time, and my nicest pair yet.

As to chamois comfort, they are spectacular. The most comfortable I've ridden. The overall quality of the bibs are amazing. They have leg grippers about 80% of the way around—I needed that due to my skinny legs. My only complaint: the shoulder straps seem a bit short for the sizing.

I'm 5'10", 150lbs, 36" chest, & 30" waist. The medium fits great; just a bit short in the straps. So, I wouldn't say it's too small everywhere.
