Great Fabric Weak on the Chamois

I have to say this is my first Hincapie purchase. Long sleeve jersey...amazing fabric and fit and these bibs.

The fabric on the bibs is as described and very very nice. But the chamois? Not so much. I assume these really are the team bib short but if they are I am a bit surprised.

The chamois is thin with no perforation for breathability. I can't comment on how it wears since I sent them back prior to riding them. But for me I want something a bit more substantial. For the price point the Sugoi team bib or RS bib or the Pearl Izumi P.R.O. in-r-cool bibs are a better choice in my opinion.

I bought in Switzerland from the former supplier of BMC the same bib. ( made by Texner)
they are just...fantastic! the chamois is great,the 2inches elastic on legs is unique.
Sorry that Hincapie did not manage to produce same quality ;)
