Perfection!These bib shorts are just perfect! I searched long and hard for the perfect pair, and after reading an incredibly good review for these shorts I decided to give them a shot. I was not disappointed!
I measured myself and went with the size that was indicated on the size chart and they fit absolutely perfectly.
Initially I was slightly concerned that the elastic at the bottom of the legs wasn't tight enough but once you're on the bike (or have jumped around a bit) they find the right spot and sit just right. They don't ride up, they don't move, in fact when you're wearing them you don't even think about them at all.
The padding covers a noticeably smaller area than that on my other shorts and tights, but it turns out it's just the right amount and sits in the perfect place; I've done 6 hours in the saddle with these shorts and not had to re-adjust, or even think about them once. The padding is slightly thicker and more dense than that on my other shorts too, it's vastly more effective and all without the "nappy" feeling when you get off the bike to walk around. The padding also doesn't have as many "creases" and "crevices" as I've noticed in other shorts, which I think usually causes discomfort.
The bib sits comfortably over my shoulders, and doesn't rub anywhere.
I honestly have nothing bad to say about these shorts at all, as soon as Pactimo release bib tights I'll be buying a pair straight away for the colder rides.
