Only Good for the Super Tall

I regret giving these a bad review but for two reasons. 1) I am 6 feet and 182 pounds and the Large is skin tight but tolerable. Yet the bibs have a two inch piece of fabric that extends below the gripper which goes practically to my knee. The XL would be another 1/4 inch longer. 2) The edge of the fabric at the end of the bib is quite rough and irritates the skin. Very disappointed as the Padrone Jersey is the best I have ever worn. Would have loved to have a matching kit as it is very sharp looking.

Responded on

I also had a problem with the length. I am 6 feet, 205 #, and 37" waist. I got a XXL, which turned out to be too long on the legs by 2" and too tall on the straps. I went to a local tailor in Santa Monica, who was able to shorten the legs and straps. Now, these are my favorite bibshorts; better than my Santini or Castelli Bodypaint. Next time, I would buy the XL size despite my waist. They width will stretch out, but the compression is great.
