I wanted to like this one, but it was polarizing. The things it did well, it did VERY well, but the features that weren't great just failed. Very tight straps, but nailed the material, it was very soft and silky but easy to get off, with a center clip, but it did have a raw edge, looks like it will wear out fast. Love handle area need to come up just a little higher, and ends up at the wrong spot, but no underwear line. Legs had a great material, but not supper grippy. Chaomis: 8/10. Average width in the butt area, but the more padded side. I returned it because of my longer torso, and the weird midsection.

Excellent! Worth the money.
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Theses are terrific bibs. I’ve tried numerous bib brands over the decades, with Giordana FRC being my previous favorite - until they changed the cut several years ago. I’ve been on a quest to find a comfortable bib short since then, with no luck. I have a muscular, athletic build and usually find women’s sizing too large in the waist and too tight in the quads. I tried the Pearl Izumi (non-pro) bibs and found them unsupportive with a pad that felt like I was wearing a diaper. Not so with these bibs! The pad is thin, which I prefer, with just the right amount of comfort. The material is soft, but surprisingly supportive. The waist is high in the front, which adds support. The straps are soft, don’t dig in, and are long enough for my longish torso. The legs are long and held in place with a silicon bead on a lazer cut edge. Really comfortable! The side pockets are a nice touch to hold a gel or chapstick. Rode a rugged 20 mile mtb in these bibs yesterday. I wish I could afford another pair!
