Straps were too tight for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: medium

Love the cuffs Castelli uses on these. It's a rubberized fabric different from other bibs I've tried and it really holds with squeezing. A medium size fit my 5'10" frame from the waist down, but the straps are definitely made for someone with a shorter torso. They uncomfortably compress my shoulders. I'd prefer to have the strapless shorts.

nice quality, sizing is WAY, WAAAAAY off

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

build quality and construction seems really nice. thin shorts with a nice aero quality to them -- perfect for summer. i'm a 6'0" male, 196lbs, 34" waist with a trackie butt and non-thin quads. i barely got a quad through one of the legs. the sizing chart suggests a Large waist @ 34.6" but other reviews said sizes ran small, so i ordered an XL, which sizing chart suggests is right for 36.6" waist and 42.1" hips. returning for a XXL, sheesh. RUNS REALLY SMALL -- like 2-3 sizes too small.

Better than expected bib shorts

  • Fit: Runs small

They match the Volo jersey really well but I got the grey and black Rodeo jerseys which also go perfect together with the red and the black Volo bib shorts. The shorts compress and fit snugly, the new Kiss3 Air is a big improvement over their original Kiss 3 chamois. They might fit tight but I'm a small 5'7" - 147lbs, 32" waist and the medium is just how I like a pair of compression/aero bib shorts. Snug and supportive.

Great fit if you use the whole chart.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I normally wear a 33-34 waist which would indicate a large. My hips however are a bit over 42 so the chart says XL. I went with that and they're great. These are actually the basis for our club shorts and I am quite pleased. They are also one of those garments that are way more comfortable on the bike than off. Also, beware of using your favorite jeans sizing as a basis. I find many of them use what is called vanity sizing. Meaning you wear a smaller number than reality. Ask any woman over 45. It's been going on for a few decades.

the chest measurements for a 3XL are a L hanes t-shirt.. i'd say these sizes are for miniature people.... not the general cycling public

Nice bib, odd sizing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Glad I ordered this in a few sizes to try. Definitely runs small as other have mentioned. If they fit you correctly, the chamois is nicely padded and of high quality, they look great, and they are a nice lightweight material. Matches well with the Volo jersey that has been on sale for a while, which makes the price of the kit reasonable.

Looks Really Cool - Runs Really Small

    The bibs looks really cool but they run pretty small. Maybe it was my fault since I have not bought Castelli Bibs in a while. I might go back and order one size larger

    Great Looking But The Sizing is Weird

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    These are great looking shorts, but the sizing chart led me astray. I ordered a medium thinking the listed waist size of 33.1" would be sufficient for a guy who typically wears 31" waisted Levi's, and should wear 30's during the height of the summer riding season. Anyhoo, these shorts were so tight and the straps so short, I was sporting an obvious case of male camel-toe. Sent them back right away. I should probably order a large, but I was afraid the compressive fit would be compromised. I generally love Castelli kits, but, man, they have some weird sizing and fit issues.

    @Gaetano: do you happen to have a disproportionately longer torso than legs? Too bad Castelli doesn't include that measurement in sizing.
