Sam Addisonwrote a review of Gore Bike Wear Power Gore Windstopper Bib Tights Short Plus - Men's on December 8, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
It's a good idea on paper but fails to perform. I've worn these shorts on multiple club rides on crisp California winter days and on a few brisk wet rides thinking maybe they just need a break in period. They do the job keeping you warm and dry but one of the few flaws I've found lies in the chamois. No amount of chamois cream can make these shorts comfortable after 20 miles at which point it feels like you have sandpaper between your legs. It seems to be a flaw in many winter/wet riding gear I've tried out but these are probable the worst. The chamois on my pair is sewn in such a way that it creases towards the saddle giving a diaper like appearance that no amount of miles or washes seems to fix. The second flaw I discovered was in the stitching. I wear a size 32 waist so I went with a medium and found the leg seams to be a tad snug and ended up popping the seam instantly after the first few pedal strokes. Oh well.
