Was wondering the same exact thing regarding that clasp location. You'd have to be nothing short of a contortionist to reach that thing during a bathroom stop. Anxiously awaiting a response from a woman that has actually worn this bib.....

What is the inseam on these shorts?
I bought this in hopes of using it on cold morning rides, but ended up returning it because the fit was a tad bit snug. I'd call it more like "uncomfortably snug". Being a female with a good amount of thick hair, it was rather difficult getting this thing onto my head. I pulled my hair into a ponytail, and it was still pretty tough to get it on. Once it was on, I found the face opening to be too small for my liking. Also with no slits on the sides, it makes wearing sunglasses a challenge as well. I was really hoping this balaclava would work for me, because I have several other Gore pieces that I am completely happy with. I think I'll stick to using my Smartwool balaclava for now.
I recently purchased a Gore jersey (Phantom Summer Sleeveless jersey) in a size XL and the fit is just about perfect for me. However, I have found that when it comes to jackets, I usually need to go up 1 size in order to accommodate an extra layer underneath. Would that be the case with the Gore Phantom SO jacket? Should I go up to an XXL? Or is it true to size and I'll have no issues wearing a baselayer (like UnderArmour ColdGear) underneath it comfortably if I stick with an XL?
Are there any "grippers" on these, to keep them in place? How does one determine the correct size for these? There are no arm circumference measurements in their sizing chart.
The tech specs on this tight indicate a chamois pad, but on the Pearl Izumi website, they list this tight as NOT having a chamois pad. So what's the verdict? Chamois or no chamois?
Was also wondering about the "pinkness" of the magenta color. I see in the response below, that it is more of a red-pink. I'm looking to get a helmet to match my bike, which is red (Cervelo red). Would the magenta in this helmet look "off" with a mostly red bike?
Yes...description says there are 2 back pockets, plus you can see them in the photos that show the backside of the top.
The Tech Specs indicate that this bib short does NOT have a chamois pad...is that correct?!? I find it hard to believe that Pearl Izumi would make a bib short without a chamois...especially at this higher price point! Can anyone verify whether or not this bib short actually does or does not have a chamois?
Does this top have a built-in bra...and if so, is it a standard shelf bra? Is it supportive enough on its own, or would wearing an extra sportsbra underneath be needed for 36-38B/C cup?
