De Marchi, worst bibs I've ever had, got rid of them after one ride, will never buy another one of their products. Lousy chamois and quality and the first is the WORST. I've never had a kit with such bad fit, in fact I've never had a kit that had such terrible proportions and don't see how these bibs could fit anyone! The proportions are all wrong. Maybe if you're very short they would be better but even at that the legs were loose, waist tight, and shoulder straps way too short, how could anyone get sizing so wrong?

Very good quality & overall fit BUT THEY DO RUN SMALL! I usually wear a Large & that's what I ordered (I'm 5'9", 170 lbs, 34 waist) and they do fit very snug like a second skin so if I ordered again I'd go for XL. Otherwise the proportional fit is good and the chamois is more firm than the spongy ones on some bibs so it's more comfortable on longer rides. Hopefully it will stretch just a bit after washing a few times.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: LARGE my normal size in all other bibs

They seem to be well made but I have 2 problems with them. The legs are much too long so they bunch up in the crotch which makes for a very uncomfortable ride if you are doing hours in the saddle and the foam pad/chamois is very soft, not firm enough to give comfort on a long ride. Of all the bibs I have these have to poorest fit, Mavic, Pactimo, Stelvio and others fit much better. I would rate these only fair for the price (and I got them at a discount). I would NOT recommend them to any serious cyclist. I may try to shorten the legs to see if I can improve the fit but I would not buy this brand again.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I think this is a good saddle and the quality seems good, just a bit pricey for what you get. The problem with mail order is that you can't try something out first. Once the saddle arrived I found it too narrow and immediately returned it for a refund. Saddles are a very personal item and fit is very important so maybe it's better to shop where you can try the fit first. I have another Fizik saddle of different style that works well for me but is not great. From my experience (tried 3) their saddles don't come wide enough although the quality is good.
