These are great bibs featuring Castelli's top of the line X2 pad which will keep your backside comfortable for hours and hours in the saddle. They are true to fit (look at the size chart people). I'm 6"2, 170lbs and lean build and Large fits me well. leg length is perhaps a little shorter than other castelli bibs. These are designed to be comfortable on the bike not posing on the catwalk - those complaining of tight shoulder straps obviously don't get this. At $125 these rival bibs from Assos and even Castelli that are much more costly.
I don't know where to start with these.
I'm 6"2 175lb 32" waist and opted for large. The fitting is at the waist and top is OK but the legs are way too short for a knicker and the elastic grippers just don't grip so they ride up all the way to your knee which is very annoying. Also the fabric is pretty much a summer weight lycra so they won't keep you as warm as say regular knicks with knee warmers. I don't like the pad - the padding is too thick towards the front which makes it a bit uncomfortable for the family jewels.
Can't recommend sorry...
