Dr Rockwrote a review of Castelli Omloop Thermal Bib Short - Men's on December 31, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
After reading reviews, I decided to take a chance on these bibs, but not before doing something I usually don't do...measuring myself and consulting the size chart. Castelli clothing is usually form-fitting in medium for me at just under six feet and 140 pounds. On their size chart I fell at the very top of the small size, so I went for it. After one training ride and one 'cross race, I can say these are the shorts I've been wanting for years. They provide complete coverage of the thighs, right to the top of the knees. The waist and bib portion fit like any other Castelli race gear, even though I bought a small. I think if I had gone with the usual medium I would have had the problem a lot of reviewers had, namely the leg opening landing in some weird place I can only describe as your knee-taint. So they just look like extra long shorts on me, but appearance is not important when talking about being warm and comfortable. Consult the size chart, eat a leaner diet, go vegan if you have to, but get these bibs if you want to wear shorts in cold weather!
