I'm 6'4" and 250 lbs...besides clipped pedals/shoes, I think this is the best "upgrade" to riding I've ever made. Wish I would have gone to bibs years ago, but never could find any for my height that fit well. Great product...super comfortable material.

Size larger then expected
Size is larger then expected and I have had better padding on cheaper products.

Most comfortable yet
Good fit for 6'3" @ 247#. All others too tight and short in the straps. Material seems first class. So far, in 30 rides, no problems at all and most comfortable of all, including a number of high-end brands.
ConsNot sure why laundry instructions say "No Dryer" when I have been using a dryer on low on all bike wear for 30 years, but I am abiding so far...

Tall Men's Elite bib short
The quality of construction is good, but time is the real test. I find the fit slightly tighter than expected. I also would like the straps to be longer. The fit is not much different than the Pearl Izumi they replaced, but their current equivalent did not fit at all. The shamus feels like it is for a more upright position than I use, with thicker padding behind my sit bones, and not enough further forward. They hold position well once settled and have no issues as I move.
ProsSmooth even fit
Consshamus not shaped well for low position
Best UsesGeneral road cycling in less aggressive positions.

Fits great, feels great
Just like its supposed to be! Leg cuffs grip just right. I'm so pleased I bought a second one just like this.

I purchased this bib short for rides 20+ miles in the Texas heat. I couldn't be happier. The bib is very comfortable. I am 6'4 340lbs and ordered a 3X. Straps and chamois very comfortable. The elastic around the thighs is a little tight but not unbearable. Would recommend.
ConsElastic around thighs.

Finally...proper fit AND comfort!
I'm six foot six and always come up a little bit short when trying to find cycle wear. My aerotech endurance bib designed for tall riders hits the spot bang on! I'll be buying more aerotech products for sure. -Keith from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

OK.. Run Big. B-
I am 6'3" 245lb and usually ride 25 - 50 miles, occassionally 100 miles. The Bibs advertisement raised the expectation bar high. I was imediatley impressed with the quick delivery, and the quality material of the bibs. I usually wear a 3x in other bibs, but following the chart I ordered a 2x. And the 2x is somewhat to big for me. The Elite endurance were comfortable when I first put them on, and I was eager to try them out. My first ride was 38 miles my 2nd ride was 25 miles and The bibs were OK. They could do a better job ventalating through the pad, as they generated more heat than I am accoustemed to. The pad is thicker but the padding does not fell as condensed as other bike pads I have ,. And for me Junk comfort was an issue. But I must say they felt better on the 2nd ride. Maybe if I bought the XL they would of performed as advertised.
ConsRun Big, poor ventalation
Best Uses20 - 50 mile rides, skeptical about 100 miles,

Great bib for tall guys
I am 6'6" tall, 103kg lean build. Bought the large size tall big shorts and they fit perfectly. Long enough in the leg and I like the comfortable straps, soft and stretchy for a good fit. Had them out in the rain so far and they have been very comfortable over several hours riding. At last bike shorts that fit!

Great fit! rough chamois
I have been in search of shorts that fit under my sit bones; most lie too far forward on me. So, these are great for the fit! However, the surface of the chamois is a bit rough and irritates my, apparently, sensitive skin. sigh. Still in search but these are ok for short rides.
Consrough chamois surface
Best UsesShort rides!

great but tall!
Love the bibs however they run about a half size larger than the regular ones, and they are tall. I am 6'3" and have a long torso but the straps are too long. Had to have them shortened. Overall a great bib.

Tall bibs for tall-ish guy
There is a lot to like about these bibs and I am fairly pleased with them so far. First up, I am 6'2", 195 pounds = tall-ish and thin-ish. I ordered the Medium Tall and the fit is good. IMO, these run large and I am very happy I read the other reviews that stated similar. Based on the stretch of the fabrics and where I carry my weight (or don't) I bet I could fit into a small--the fabric stretches that much. Odd to order a medium after years of L or XL in other brands. It haven't had them out on the road yet, but have worn them numerous times on the trainer, where they are comfortable. Long trainer rides are typically something that exacerbate fit or comfort problems, so I am in high hopes that out on the road they will be great. These bibs are the second pair I have ordered from Aerotech. When I had questions about chamois placement on the first pair, I called and talked to Chris in customer service. He was EXCELLENT in his product knowledge, interest in helping me find what I wanted and willingness to work with me to find a solution. As it went, I ordered these bibs to compare to a different model I had ordered, rather than exchange first pair and not have both in hand to compare side by side. This approach worked great and I could easily see how the two bibs differed, then choose. Returning the first pair was simple and I was credited promptly.
Pros--Fabrics are nice, stitching rivals that of any other big brand and construction seems clean and well-designed --US made is an increasing rarity --Elite chamois is definitely thicker and firmer than their Top Shelf pad. --Tall sizes available! --Longer, 11" inseam works fantastic with my long femurs!
Cons--I wish they would rotate insert just a bit more rearward, but that may just be how the bibs fit >me<. Subjective, I know. --At 6'2" with long legs, I may actually be on the short side of what the upper garment is designed for. There is ample stretch in the shoulder straps for a person much, much taller than I. I question whether I should go with the regular bibs next time around to help hoist the rear of the chamois rearward. I DO like the longer inseam and the straps don't pull down on my shoulders like some other bibs I have and don't like.

Awesome fit! Tall Large size was perfect.
I'm 6'7", 225lbs and finally found a pair of bibs that fit without feeling the straps dig into my shoulders after long rides. Tall Large size was perfect.

These are the third set of bibs I have got from ATD. Well made & super comfortable for the tall blokes. ATD shipped them to NZ for me with absolutely no drama.

Great fit, not-so-great fabric
I have looked forward to wearing a bib short that actually fit--I'm 6'5" tall. They fit great! However, on my first time wearing them on a 70 miles event ride I needed to do some self-massage of my quads. By the end of the ride--and two or three quad self-massages--I'd nearly worn a hole in the right thigh of the bib-shorts! Disappointing to be sure. I don't know why they can't use better materials for what is otherwise a great product.
Pros+fit +style +cost
Cons-fabric/material seemed almost fragile -some stitching poorly finished

A little loose on me
I am 6'4" and 174 pounds. I bought the medium bibs and I am fairly happy with them but the fit is not perfect. The straps are fine, and the legs are fine. The chamois is great. Everything is good except they are baggy above the crotch and below the belly button. All that said, I have rode in them for more than 200 miles and no harm was done. They are good, functional, and made in the USA.

Depends on your body
I am 6' 5" and weigh 220 lbs. Bib length is a problem that the tall X large addressed but I find the tops tight around my body and the bottoms loose making "junk management" an issue. Also the front of the bib is very high making " nature breaks" a problem. I was surprised that the legs are not longer. In fact, my Italian Girodana has a longer leg, go figure. Materials are good but loose crotch leads to chamiox shifting for my body.
ProsQuality material, good bib length
ConsPoor fit for my body

Sizing and Lycra weight
I'm 6' 2" and about 175lb and the medium-tall shorts were loose fitting. I usually find mediums in established high-end brands tight fitting, but the AT mediums fit like an XL. Most other high-end brands use a heavier weight Lycra that would provide some protection in a crash. The length of the bib and inseam were good. I would only recommend this short to a tall friend who was heavy set who had trouble finding a bib that fit properly. Oddly, there are lots of cyclists close to my height and weight who would be interested in tall bibs but AT seems to not cater to this common competitive cyclist build.

Very good bibs
Very good feel. I am 6'4" and 155 pounds and the medium size is borderline too tight over the shoulders but after riding for awhile it is not noticeable.Chamois seems to have the right thickness.

Just what I hoped for!
I wanted a a bib short to fit my 6' 5" 205 lb frame and a chamois for long rides. These bibs fit really well and the chamois has been the best I ever had. Did a couple mid range rides (40-50 miles) and was comfortable even at the end of the ride.

Finally a good fit
Other than finding the correct size, fit, the bibs are excellent, did my first century with these, same excellent chamois as the elite endurance shorts that I have.
ProsBest chamois padding
ConsDifficulty finding correct size in the bib.

Performed as Designed
Bought these to ride one of the MS150 rides and knew that I would be in the saddle 5-6 hours each day. After finishing day one, I felt I would have no issues riding day two. Little bulky but fit perfectly for my 6'7" height. Wish I could get this style in a non-bib design for summer riding.
ProsFit and chamois comfort

If you're looking for a solid, well-fitting pair of bibs, but your torso is a bit long, but these. Seriously.

I'm 6'3" 175lbs and these medium tall bibs fit perfect. The leg cuffs are not overly tight and don't pull my leg hair. The shoulder straps fit correctly, not too tight or too loose. The seat padding is good - I have learned it is best to apply the lube to the padding in addition to my skin, just seems to be comfortable for longer rides. I was prepared to pay more to get a USA made pair of bibs but these are competitively priced. Keep up the good work folks.

My 3rd pair, very happy!
At 6'7" it's hard to get knicks that don't look like aerobics tights, these are great and fit perfectly.
