Nice light bib, but poor chamois quality

I purchased this bib shorts as I wanted to try the POC. Although it fits well, I'm a little concerned about the chamois. There simply isn't much padding and it looks cheaply made. I'll return with feedback. Well... I went for a long 87 mile ride (to NYC) today and these shorts were good for the first 35-50 miles. The last 30+ miles, was a bit uncomfortable in the saddle. The bib shorts fit fairly nicely, but my fears were confirmed. I'll probably look at one of the other or more expensive POC bib shorts.

Very nice and very light bib with good compression. I would say runs a tad bit small but you start to forget about it after a few rides. I have a 29 hips and bought small.

One of my favorite bibs but...

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 echo those sentiments about the chamois size. I'm disappointed in the quality of the chamois. I expected better quality from POC and at a $150 price point, the quality just wasn't what I expected.

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.
