I bought the VOLO bib shorts which were a little small, but a higher performance level bib. So I bought these thinking the lower performance level would mean a slightly looser fit (exactly what I wanted), but they are a full size smaller than stated. If you have big hip bones and really slim legs, these may work, but for regularly built men, go a size up.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I usually wear a Medium jersey, and this medium jacket (rain cape) fit correctly for an over-coat. It is designed to go over whatever else you have on, and it fits like it will do that properly without being too loose. The arms are long enough for me (long armed person here) when I reach the bars and the shoulders are wide enough to not stretch across the back of the jacket. The extra tail length helps a lot too.
This color looks white in the picture, but it's more like a white mesh with a plastic-ish liner. If you wear it over your jersey you will be able to see your jersey through it with a little fading.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I normally wear a Medium in bib shorts, but had to get a Large for these. Maybe they are more aligned with European sizing, I don't know, but they fit very well for me. The legs are a bit long, only about 2 inches from my knee to the bottom of the shorts, and I'm used to about 1 less inch of leg length, but the trend now is a longer inseam. Overall they are comfortable, though I have worn more comfortable shorts (which is all down to the chamois in this case). I would rate them as 8/10 for chamois comfort and I have 2 pair from another manufacturer that are a 10/10 for me. Most chamois I have are 8/10's. They are comfortable, but not like a brand new recliner after a 4 hour ride on a Sunday afternoon, if you know what I mean.
Overall, they are a good pair of shorts, and chamois comfort is 75% up to the individual. The materials are nice, though may be a little fragile around the inner thigh and front groin, but that is also what makes them breathable. the outer panels are a different material and are more durable.

p.s. I am 5'11", but I have slightly longer legs and shorter torso for my height. 6'0" if my torso was proportionately correct.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I've worn Medium LG bib shorts before, and they fit well, but these are a little tighter (or my butt is a little fatter and new shorts don't stretch as easily) than my existing shorts. I sent them back for a pair of Large Carbon Lazer bib shorts that are great, they would have fit well enough though (they are compression material).
