    One of my favorite bibs but...

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:
    True to size

    Got these during the POC sale that dropped these down to $119. Materials and fit wise, it is my favorite bibs of the 3 brands I own that include GORE and Specialized. There is one and only aspect of this bib that I do not like and it's chamois, which is very thin and the coverage doesn't seem to be as good as other bibs. It's a shame because the fit and the elastic grippers are fantastic.

    I had previously purchased the POC Avip ceramic short so I had a good reference point for these shorts. I like the chamois, it's not bulky at all, I don't tend to ride more than thirty miles and it's very comfortable. The overall fit is tight and compressive in the right ways. The material is fairly lightweight, not as light or airy as the Avip ceramic pair, it'll still get worn during hot Florida summer days. It's a sleek good-looking bib short.
