Nice straps, bulky chamois

I'm comparing this to my experience with Sugoi, Castelli, and Capo bibs.

I like the design of this one. The length of the legs are good, and feels like they're longer than my Castellis, but shorter than Capo. I haven't measured, though.

Unlike any other bibs I have used, the straps on this one are more like stretchy suspenders, not the usual, non-stretchy mesh panels. That does make them more comfortable on the shoulders.

My biggest dislike with these is the chamois. They're the biggest I feel I've ever worn. They feel bulky when walking or standing around. They're also thicker than anything else I've seen in the front. On the bike they're OK.

Despite the criticism, I'm pretty happy with them for the price I paid on sale. Overall I'm more pleased with my Sugoi and Capo bibs.
