Bib Shorts
I've worn them several times under unpadded bib tights, but not alone yet. They're comfortable and well made. They are very stretchy, which reduces their compression factor. I'd like them to be a little tighter--although the size is right. The fabric is thinner and more stretchy/less compressive then other bibs i wear.

Great bibs!
Just bought my second pair - very comfortable, great chamois and great price.

Great bibs!
I have been riding for over 40 years and have been through many, many shorts. These are by far the best I have had in recent years, maybe ever. The chamois is very well padded and really had a difference for me (I have become more sensitive in recent years). Great overall and I plan to buy a second pair.

My new favorite
It has been my quest to not buy cycling gear made where labor conditions are questionable, and really to find US made cycling gear of high quality. It's a tough road I've chosen. There really isn't a lot of quality performance cycling wear made here, and I've tried most. Some are pretty good, while others are just not right for me. Before this quest, I went through several brands, eventually landing on Assos as my favorite bibs. They are comfortable and well made, but have a big price tag. I found the Aero Tech Men's Elite Endurance Cycling Bib on one of my many web searches and decided to give them a shot. First I tried them on a 20 mile ride, and I didn't notice them at all. This is a very good sign. Then I tried them on a 40 mile ride. Same thing! In fact, they were possibly even more comfortable than my Assos bibs...at half the price! Looking forward to doing longer rides in these bibs. I would say that if you are between sizes, go smaller. I'm a small-medium, but tried the medium, and while they are not too too big, I could definitely fit in a small. They're comfortable and give support and room in all the right places.
It's actually a no brainer for me. I will be buying these from now on.

Aero Tech men's elite cycling bib
I'm happy with this purchase, but price is a little steep. The bib is comfortable, keeps me cool, and has a nice design. The built in reflectors are a nice touch. I rate the padding at 3 1/2 stars. Don't get me wrong its good, i just wish it was a little thicker considering the price, but i acknowledge I'm not the average size rider( 6'2", 280 pounds). That being said, i would still recommend this item. At this time i would buy this item again, but i want to see how well they hold up over a season.

Good fit, just the right amount of Compression
I have only been on two rides so far, but I have been really happy with these bibs. The pad provides good support and padding without being too thick. The straps and body bit are just right. Will buy another pair.

Worth every penny
Admittedly, I got these on sale. Bought two pair. I???m a long distance cycler, most days at least 4 hours. Being retired from the army, I don???t have a lot to spare on products that don???t work.
I???ve used each 3 times already. No ride less than 60 miles, two were centuries. As I rotate old worn out gear, they???re going to be replaced by these.
Absolutely comforfortable after even 8 hours in the saddle. You can spend more, but I don???t know if you can buy better

Great quality bib

I don't often do reviews, but . . .
I might have just found chamois nirvana! These are the first shorts I've had (and there have been many, of different makes and models) that let me ride more than an hour or so without needing a butt break. For me, the shape and placement of the chamois is ideal, and I naturally settle into a comfortable, efficient position on the saddle as I change positions on the handlebars. The addition of the mesh pocket in the small of the back is a welcome feature as well, giving a bit of storage space for those times I elect to ride without a standard cycling jersey.

Cold water machine wash, hangs dry in reasonable time (comparable to others, despite the thicker chamois).

For fitment comparisons, I'm 5'10", 175 lbs., 33 waist, 32 inseam, and size medium is ideal.

Other reviewers have mentioned that the cut in front is a bit high for "natural breaks," and I agree, but have not found it unreasonable.

Aero Tech men's elite endurance cycling bib shorts
The 1st day I wore them I wrote 60 miles with no problem. The fit and comfort is very similar to my Aero tech men's riding endurance bike shorts. The straps on the bibs are comfortable and a good fit for me as I am 5'9" tall and weigh hundred and 79 pounds. I ordered the large size and I am happy with the bibs.

Best bibs I have ever work
Great chamois, holds up well to washing. I own 3 pairs, and do laundry to make sure I do not get stuck wearing other shorts. A little pricey, but worth it.

Very good product
I bought these on some recommendations from our cycle club members when I asked on face book about what the best bib shorts for an upcoming century ride that we were doing. Well I ordered and received them in no time. I wore them for the century and really glad that I had bought these. They are well worth the extra $$ and so much better than I have ever had in the past. They really are designed for the long haul and I am very pleased with my purchase.

OK Bibs
Was glad to see shorts offered in larger sizes for clydes! The sizing chart, however, is off. I measured my waist at 43" and the 2XL was too large offering no compression and excess fabric. The XL fit better, but was sad to see the inseam shrink as I'm 6'1". However, even though the compression was better, the 6-panel fabric design pattern didn't offer compression where I would have wanted. Also, after my first ride there was some fabric wear already starting where it must have rubbed. Overall, I like that there is a size that can fit my body and pad was nice, but I didn't feel that it was worth the price.

Chamois doesn't seem right
The Chamois seems to be in the same location as my other Aerotech bib's but by the end of a 20-mile ride, it's way too far forward. Unfortunately, this was not something I could tell by trying them on, so after 2 rides with the same issue, they are unreturnable. Been riding a long time and have had many pairs of bibs and shorts even other Aerotech ones, never had this issue with any others, I would not recommend these.

Excellent pair of Bibs! One recommendation, please fix the high cut in front and lower it a tad.
Difficult restroom stops because of the high cut in front.

Best of the besr
I ride a average of 5000 to 6000 miles per year. I've been doing it for years and have used all different brands of shorts and by far and away these are the best, most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I will not use anything else. If you ride century rides or just 30 or 40 miles you'll want to buy these

My Saddle Never Felt So Good!!
I'm Crazy Stoked Up about my new Elite Endurance Bibs! I ordered two pairs and I am glad that I did. I've logged 100 miles on these bibs in 3 rides. ( 50, 25, 25 miles) Currently training for the tour divide and plan on using these bibs. They are very lightweight- the material feels like it is not even there. The mesh in the back panel is key, and the extra pocket is big enough to hold a liter bottle of water- yet is unnoticeable when not in use. My order took three days to deliver. I talked with Jordan before purchasing and he absolutely steered in the right direction with this product. The bibs fit true to size. Fantastic Product! Glad to Support a product made in the USA!

Very good purchase
Developed ischial bursitis after years of riding. After buying the ATD Elite Endurance bibs riding was a lot more comfortable. I like a compression fit so I exchanged for a size smaller than what I measured for. Bib material is a lighter weight than some endurance bibs but very comfortable for all around feel. They are cut high in the front so taking a nature break is a little time consuming, but again I bought a size smaller than the size chart suggested. Very pleased with AeroTech quality and comfort.

Very Good Value and Confortable but Warm
The chamois is very comfortable on these, you can tell it is high end. I am new to bibs, these are my first pair so I'm not the best to judge but overall the quality seems good and glad I tried them. My only complaint after not looking at other brands is that they don't have much mesh ventilation. The lower back in particular gets hot.this may be the norm but overal. Very well built, I can tell the difference in the quality of this chamois on 2-3 hour rides vs my shorts from a. High end manufacturer, these just disappear for the most part, a great value and love to be able to support a USA company in the cycling space. Bought some of their socks as well, very good quality and bright!
