Height: 6' 5"
Weight: 185 lbs
Size Purchased: XXL

I thought this jersey was going to be great when I first got it but was unhappy after my first ride. I am tall and fairly trim with a 42in chest, 35/36in waist, broad shoulders, barrel chest. I am between sizes and went with the XXL. The shoulders were snug, almost tight, the length was good, but the body did not fit well at all. There was a lot of extra fabric through the trunk that led to lots of flapping in the wind and bunching of the zipper. I don't think a size down would fit in the chest and arms.

The fabric is also a heavier weight than I want would like for riding in southern California. It is well made and looks to be fairly durable though.

Fit: Runs small

Weight: 193 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

I have a 41 or 42in chest and a 36in waist. According to the size chart I should be an XL. I could barely get this on. My skinny cycling arms barely fit through the sleeves, the waist was 2 or 3 inches small. The chest was ok, but still tight. Size up at least one size for these jerseys.

The look and fabric is great though.

Size Purchased: XL

I lost a ton of weight and have been sort of in between sizes looking to replace some of my old kit that is now on the big side for me. I rolled the dice and picked up these bib shorts in a XL as I was waffling between XL and XXL.

At 6'5" and 193lbs with a 36" waist, the XL is the perfect fit. They are a tad tight to get over my thighs, but they give just the right amount of compression once on. They are not too short for my height either.

The chammy is great so far after about a half dozen rides or so. I've worn these on 60 mile flat hammer fests and 4 hour mountain climbs. My sit bones are never the first part to get sore or tired. Time will tell how long it holds up.

I am disappointed in this item. From the description of the product and the reviews I was led to believe that this was a good cold weather piece of kit. Unfortunately, I dont think it will hold up much below about 45-50 deg F. I was hoping to use this bibtight for riding during the mid-Atlantic winter with temps down into the mid to high 20s. Now I have to find something else to hopefully do that job. I would have returned it but it was past the 30 days.

Other than my problem of it not being suitable for winter, it is a perfectly fine bibtight. It is comfortable and form fitting. The Chamois seems decent enough for a 2-3 hour ride. The high visibility stripe on the legs is nice. The legs are a touch on the short side for me (usually wear a 34" inseam pants) but close enough.

This may just be a unique anatomy issue, but the chamois was not the right size/shape/position for me. It was almost as if the chamois was several sizes too small as it did not extend out far enough to actually cover my sit bones. I do not ride on a wide saddle either. Maybe this one was just defective?

Other than the issue with the chamois it was fine. Went on easy, zippers were nice, fleece like interior was comfy. I doubt how well it might hold up in sub freezing weather as it didnt look to be all that wind proof.

Solid grips that went on easy and are very secure. They are slightly tacky which makes for a good connection point regardless of weather or sweatiness. Only down side is that they could be a bit larger for my tastes, but I have large hands. The size is probably perfectly fine for most.

Certainly a cheap, convenient, and what appears to be durable grip solution.

Ht: 6ft 5in Wt: 220-230lbs Size: XXL

Out of the handful of bibs and shorts I have used, these are easily the best. The chamois hits me perfectly and is comfortable for longer rides upwards of 3-3.5 hrs. I like the snug, but not tight, fit, the shoulder straps are wide enough, and it just does its job. One of the best things you can say about any piece of cycling apparel is that you forget you are even wearing it and these do that for me. They are durable too. Ive used my current pair for a couple years now as my go to big and they are still in excellent shape with no significant wear.

I will definitely be grabbing another one of these as soon as the XXL comes back in stock.

I am 6'5", approximately 220lbs with a barrel chest, ordered a 2XL. The fit is pretty good, arms are a touch on the snug side but the rest of the jersey is fairly loose. I could probably have gone with an XL and been ok. It is not billed as a euro/race fit and it certainly delivers. It is long enough for my height. The red is nice and vibrant for visibility. The pockets are a bit on the loose side as well which makes them easy to get into.

Overall, I would recommend this for someone who is looking for a nice quality jersey that is not skin tight.

I used these shorts a few times and went for some moderate length rides. The overall fit was quite good (size, compression, etc), but the chamois did not fit correctly for me which led to a decent amount of discomfort. My sit bones were hitting the very back of the chamois padding when I was on my bike and nothing I could do would get the shorts to fit me in the right spot.

It is unfortunate. I had high hopes given the stellar reviews and they looked good and fit nicely. Unfortunately, the chamois was a no go for my anatomy.

For reference, I am 6'5", approx 220 lbs and the 2XL was the perfect size for waist and length.

I've had this for a couple winter seasons now and love it. It is very light and provides excellent heat retention. I wear it as often as I can during the cold mid-Atlantic winters. I am 6' 5" and 230lbs and the XXL fits wonderfully; the sleeves and torso are plenty long and it fits like a glove.

I just got these in preparation for winter riding. They have a really nice wind blocking exterior and comfy fleece interior. I tried them on and immediately started cooking. I expect they will hold up to the windy mid-20s F winter weather of the mid-atlantic without any trouble.

I am 6'5" and 230lbs with a 38x34 pant size and ordered the XXL. It is long enough and fits in the hips and waist. The legs are a little tight but expected in terms of compression, they are not "too small" tight.

4 stars only because it isnt cold enough outside to wear them and really see their potential yet. I suspect they are 5 star worthy.
