I used to be a Pearl Izumi bib girl, but this is my new favorite bib. I LOVE the flat seams at the leg and the length and compression of the whole leg/lower portion. The chamois is flat but super comfortable for long (40+ mile) rides. The straps have no extra snap or ridiculous closure that other manufacturers think women need to keep these straps in place: they stay put just fine. The height of the side panels hit in a great place: not too low so that that extra five lbs. squeezes out. Very flattering altogether. If I had any complaint, it's that the white panels at the hip area don't always go so well with multi-colored jerseys, and the black straps and upper portion show through most of my light colored jerseys. This, however, didn't stop me from buying a whole year's supple of these bibs.
