Anonymouswrote a review of Sportful Fiandre No-Rain Pro Bib Short - Men's on October 9, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
When I first tired these on I could barely get them around my hips and thought no way could I wear them. Yes, the size Large was correct for my 6'3" 170 pound frame. So I took them off and tried them on the next day, then the next, then the next for about a week, each time I discovered the uniqueness of how to put them on more easily as they loosened a bit. The straps are wide, long and highly elastic and stay in place. I finally decided to wash them to wear on a ride.
I bought these for the light thermal qualities, not water resistance. My impression is while they're warm-er than regular lycra due to the brushed nature inside, they're far from overly insulative. They feel like a bib made of heavyweight lycra that's brushed inside. With knee warmers I could wear these down to 40 and without at least 75 and likely more. I like the insert and the shape and placement of the padding. I've tried some Elastic Interface pads which tend to split the padding but this is "old school" in that it has no splits. The pad front is nice and high, no chafing ever, and one reason I chose Sportful and this pad. Way too many bibs have pads that aren't high enough in the front. The legs are nice and long.
Basically, the more I wear them the more I like them !
