These fit much looser than a european fit, particularly in the mid section. Everyone has a different size of course, but I would say these almost run larger than a typical north american sizing.

I've used a number of other product including the Castelli endurance and aero race with proghetto x2 pads, Gore Ozon, but these became my favorite short upon 1st wear.
Pad is comfortable, but it's all the finishing touches that really make this short great (gripper and elasticated bib straps). The babric is really quite good and overall comfortable.
Sizing on these is european, fits just slightly smaller than Castelli even (not a size smaller, just snugger). So take this into account rather than getting your normal size in huge-fitting north American brand gear.
These were purchased at 50% off. The overall fit is fairly comfortable, and the pad although I thought was too thin at first, is adequate, and fairly comfortable. I really like the power band at the leg bottom. Fit is not quite the italian / euro that I was expecting. These run a little larger than Castelli or other italian brands. Maybe not a big as a North American brand sizing.
They aren't my favorite short by far, but a decent value for no-nonsense shorts.
I believe these are the Ozon bibs (per label and othe web sites).
Initial impressions - The fabric is really nice on on these, and they look good. but how do they perform.
I previously used mainly Castelli bibs with Proghetto x2 pad, and didn't think anything could ever be as good! One 4 hour ride in these, and they became my favorite shorts instantly (until I wore my Zero RH+ Zeekay bibs 2 weeks later - refer to review)
I am pretty use to the fit of the Castelli/ Euro/ italian fit, and generally wear a large. Medium was in order here, and the fit was fairly good. Almost wanted a small. (165lbs, 5'11" with fairly large quads).
