The Sugoi is by far the best set of bibs I have ever worn, sorry Castelli, Giordana, Verge and LG. The fabric is very nice in hot weather, the pad is great and they will stand up to thousands and thousands of miles. Each of mine have got 10,000 plus on them. The two pair that I have are getting tired, and I have lost about 25 pounds since I bought them so they are on the loose to baggy side. They are XXL, so I decided to drop down a size to XL. I ordered a pair of RS bibs in XL and a pair of MidZero Bib tights in the same size. I cant even get the RS Bibs on. Fortunately, the tights that came are XXL and they are a snug fit. So the bib shorts are going back for an exchange.

The only thing I have noticed is that the RS bibs are now made in Morocco, presumably by a subcontractor. My previous bibs were made in Vancouver, BC, Canada, which is Sugoi's HQ..

Bottom line, beware these shorts run a full small, at least in the larger sizes. My 4-star rating would have been a 5+ had the sizing been right.
