Since I have had these a while and put some miles in on them....These are really great bib shorts & I have just about all of them, that is what I do. Why are these so special? The strap seems strange at first glance, then once you get into them, the straps disappear from your mind. ALL the straps stay put & don't move at all. No need to "readjust the straps mid ride" The straps are well placed into the aero position. These are proper race level bibs & should be worn over a sleeveless base layer (summer) (If you are into hanging out in them at the coffee shop this may not be the ones for you). Size up one size and you should be all set. I am 5'11 & 175lbs and I wear an XL in these comfortably. If you are shorter stature you may not need to size up in the smaller sizes. I just found that the inseam in the XL was more to my liking. Honestly, one of the best bibs out there for this price. You won't find another bib short with this many high $ features for this price.
