ive worn many different bib shorts and shorts and i must say that these are the best ive tried so far. I would say they are definitely worth the extra money.
The lycra is very soft and feels thin, the leg grippers feel great and the straps feel very soft. the length is fine for me.
i normally wear a large on the waist and went with the XL because it said size up if your not italian or rail thin!
if you find your fit you wont be disappointed
