Description

Total Comfort Bib Short

The Sportful Total Comfort Men's Bib Shorts have a big name to live up to, and they don't disappoint. With a variable density chamois that provides ample cushion, you're unlikely to find yourself in discomfort, even on the longest rides. And the compressive fabrics further enhance comfort by reducing the risk of muscle vibration and road chatter causing premature fatigue.

Sportful builds the Total Comfort bibs out of a blend of Lycra materials, each chosen for a specific job. The majority of the shorts are comprised of the mid-weight 220g Lycra, which acts as a compressive layer. Basically, it envelops your muscles in a firm embrace, which reduces muscle vibrations, a common cause of fatigue. The seat of these shorts is built from Lycra Ceramic, which has added abrasion resistance, helping the shorts to hold up against long miles in the saddle, without wearing thin. Flatlock stitching minimizes the chances of chafing at the seams. The materials used throughout these bibs are breathable and wicking so it pulls moisture away from your skin, keeping you cool and dry.

For the insert, Sportful chose its Total Comfort chamois, which is aptly named. It has three densities of foam, placing the firmest underneath the typical hotspots areas helping to evenly distribute pressure. This insert is up to 18mm thick in certain areas, which minimizes sit bone pressure without excessive bulk elsewhere. When it comes to inserts that are built for all-day rides, this one is up there with some of the plushest, most forgiving options we've tried.

The Sportful Total Comfort Men's Bib Shorts are available in seven sizes, from X-Small to 3X-Large, and in the color Black.

  • Supportive bibs shorts worthy of their name
  • Strategic panels and materials support muscles and boost wicking
  • Flatlock seams prevent chaffing in sensitive zones
  • Excellent support up top with laser cut bibs
  • Bibs and hems lock in place with silicone print
  • Take the sting out of rough roads with the Total Confort chamois

So So

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: XL

Material is comfortable and durable but fit is a little off. I'm 5' 10" and 180 lbs the Sportful fit guide says i should wear an xl based on my chest size. The leg ends are right at the knee and loose leaving visible ruffles. Don't think i would buy these again unless my dimensions change. Giordana seems to be my best fit.

rating is based on price & grippers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

-Before I get into details, I’ll cut to the chase. I paid $60 for these bibs from Steep & Cheap and at that price I wish I had bought two. However, I do NOT think they are worth the $170 suggested retail price. They’re getting 4 stars based on the price I paid.
-The reason I bought these bibs is because of the grippers which are a single strip of silicone around the bottom edge. They’re simple and plain looking but these old-school grippers don’t irritate my skin the way the new “pro-style” wide-band elastic grippers do in hot humid conditions. I’m frustrated by how hard it is to find grippers like this, especially on higher end bibs.
-The fabric used in the lowers is thin, comfortable and slightly meshed on the sides making these bibs great for hot weather. Also making them good for hot weather is that the front doesn’t come up too high. They sit about even with my navel. The final feature that makes these a hot-weather bib is that the inseam is a little shorter than some brands. There’s about 4” between my knee and the bottoms whereas my Capos or Giordanas come down almost to my knees.
-The chamois in these bibs in one of the best I’ve ever felt. I did an 80 mile ride on my trainer and had zero issues in the chamois area. The only negative of these bibs is the straps. They’re thin and short making them cut into my skin slightly. I bought a size large and at 5’9” it doesn’t seem like the straps should be this short. There’s no way I could wear a medium because of this. They’re also spaced too close together which exacerbates this problem. Lastly, the straps have a small stretchy segment that’s lined with silicone right where they sit on top of your shoulders. I assume this is to hold the straps in place but it’s totally unnecessary and only serves to irritate my skin. The straps of these bibs is why I would have returned these bibs had they not been $60. I recommend sizing up with Sportful since they run small like most Italian brands. At 5’9” and 150 pounds I had to go with a large whereas I’m a medium in American and British brands.

Disappointment

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: lg

Chamois is bulky and not supple. Leg grippers have no hem and curl at bottom, and the inseam length is short. Don't buy these.

They ruined them

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

The original version of these bibs were amazing. Better than anything else I've worn. The straps weren't the best, but you could get used to them.
This version is awful.
The pad is still great, but they've changed the side of the legs to a mesh which is more see-thru.
But the part that makes these unwearable is the hem. It's like a ruffle.
It is wider than the rest of the legs. I even tried a smaller size and it flares out so much that it doesn't touch my leg at all which makes having a gripper useless, plus you look like a ballerina with the ruffle. I don't have Pro legs, but I also don't have sticks either.
Sportful, what were you thinking!!!!

Design Change

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Runs a tad smaller than before. Narrower shoulder straps without that nice broad, rubbery feel. The straps are placed quite close together on the front waist seam. Same stitching on the body but with more comfortable materials. Sportful has kept the same Total Comfort chamois. And that's the reason we buy these, eh?

Shorts were great, straps were OK.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

I picked these up on a whim, and was very impressed with the lower half of the short, but the upper half just didnt seem to fit me quite right. Like Jon said below, my litmus for bibs is if I forget I'm wearing them, they're good. With these, the lower half of the bib disappeared completely, the pad was nice and dense and worked great for a couple mountain bike rides. Fit is tight, so go up a size from what you would normally get. I have a 32 inch inseam and weigh about 165, and I went with a Large.

The straps did not disappear on me, however. They were too short for my torso length, and I found them biting into my shoulders not in a painful way, but in a noticeable way. The tightness also made nature breaks a bit more difficult, as the only way to pull down the front of the short required bending over quite far at the waist. I would consider going up to an XL, but I feel like then the shorts themselves would be too loose.

Overall, I would still recommend these based off the quality of the construction and the great pad and short, but be wary if you are a taller thinner rider because of the strap length.

Totally Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Got my first ride in wearing the TC bibs this weekend. My litmus test for a bib is: "If I don't notice anything, that's good". These bibs did just that over a 15 mile MTB ride.
I would size up based on the size chart, I'm a 30-31 in waist, and the mediums fit well, and I don't think smalls would have made it over my hips.
Once on, these are really comfortable. The outer leg material has a very soft hand, and excellent stretch. The chamois is comfortable, and doesn't feel bulky. Inseam length is standard to other bibs I have, extending down to the base of my quads.
