I was really excited about these based on the reviews but when I wore it for the first time it did not keep my cool at all and in fact the extra layer made me overheat.
I absolutely love these bibs. Super comfortable and the fabric breathes really well in the Texas heat. The straps are quite comfortable and even after spending 6 1/2 hours on the bike I didn't feel them at all. I am 6' and weight 170 lbs and the large fits perfect. I also love the leg length, not too long but not too short.
How is this supposed to fit? Are the base layers supposed to be skin tight. I have a 38 inch chest and a 33 inch waist. Should I get the S/M or the L/XL?
This is by far my favorite jersey that I own. It is super light and I love how form fitting it is...I never feel like it gets in my way. It also breathes really well and keeps me cool while on 110 degree rides in Texas. This is definitely an Italian fit jersey, I usually wear a small or medium in American fit and the large fits me like it is supposed to, TIGHT. If you have a gut this jersey could be problematic.
I have 2 pairs of Castelli bibs that retailed for $200 and I prefer the Silverline bibs to the Castelli. They have a really great chamois with sufficient padding. I also like that they don't have leg grippers but still don't ride up.
Update: I ended up returning these because on rides over 35 miles I would get really chafed. I have a few buddies that these work perfectly for but they just didn't fit quite right.
