Warm, comfortable, athletic fit.

These bibs are plush both in the fleece fabric and chamois. Best part is that they fit (L), given that I need a little more room than a Euro-pro climbing specialist. I tried on many other of the high end winter bib shorts in XL & XXL and these are the only ones that fit properly.( I wear 36W, 5'10") And the price is much less than the others too. Rode them in low 40 degree temps with leg warmers and felt like they could have handled temps down into the low 30's.
I gave 4 stars only because they are not as anatomically designed( not as many separate panels) as the super expensive Euro bibs....but like I said, these fit an American everyday rider at much less cost. They are well constructed and appear to be quite durable.

Don't go by the sizing chart. My reccommended size was substantially too large.
That said, they look to be very well made and I am disappointed that I won't be able to exchange.

same here

the XL is NOT a 36, more like a tall 38
