No complaints, these are great!

I love wearing bib shorts because most cycling shorts have an elastic waist that feels like it is trying to act more like a girdle than a functional cycling piece. Not so with the Perla shorts. The waistband is soft and stretchy, so you never feel like you are being attacked by them. Although these shorts are made mostly for short rides, I have take them on a few 50 milers and felt totally fine with the Kiss3 chamois. Get your hands on a pair of these beauties!
