As always, good quality and "Made in America". Probably my 5th or 6th pair. Same fit and wear as others. Glad to see they haven't changed.

I'm tall, 6'3", this is the first set of bibs that I've owned that I didn't have to stretch and pull the shoulder straps to get into the bib. Very comfortable, love them, wear them all the time.

First class! 5 Star product
At last after various top brands that I tried, none had the length in the leg! That is until I came across the Tall bibshorts, perfect fit! ( Great pity about the Uk customs ripoff) Pity there is not a way round this. But still all worth the hassle!! Great pair of bob shorts
ProsPerfect length , comfortable would not hesitate to recommend

1st bib to fit
I'm 6'7' and these fit great. Never been able to wear a bib before. Overall I am happy with them after several 20-30 mile rides. Pretty comfortable and seem well made. Leg length is longer which I like. Only missing a 5th star because the chamois comfort is good but not great. Not sure why. Everything else, including quick delivery, has been great. I'd say 4.5 stars.
ProsThey fit! Good quality.

I am 6' 10'' and these fit well. Only buy Aerotech bibs now.

These are my first bibs and they will not be my last. These bibs coupled with the jersey provide an experience unmatched by regular padded shorts. No more self conciuos worrying about exposing your butt to the world. Great pick up.
ProsGreat fit. Good quality.

Awesome bib shorts!
Awesome shorts! I'm 6'1" with a 32 " inseam. Large shorts fit great. Length of shorts and bib are perfect. Padding is high quality.
ProsGreat fit and price. High quality.

These shorts are great. The material is nice and thick, but not so thick the shorts are hot. I really like that you can machine wash and dry these shorts. The pad is nice and thick, and has held up after a dozen wash/dry cycles.

Tall cycling bibs
They are well made and the gel pads are comfortable but the suspenders are a little short for my long torso. Cramps my style a little if you know what I mean.
ProsPadded Shorts fit perfectly and are comfortable. Just snug with the suspenders on.
ConsShort suspenders for a tall mans bib.

LOVED these bibs, but...
First anything I bought from ATD. I was thrilled !!! to find TALL cycling clothing that was US made. Bibs arrived promptly and looked great. Materials felt good. Leg grippers substantial. Sewing rivaled any other name brand's. I was very excited. When I put them on I immediately loved the longer inseam (11" on the talls) and the overall fit and feel. The Top Shelf insert, however, was a bit thin (for my tastes) and rotated kinda far forward (again, in my opinion). Sitting on the trainer, my sit bones were on the back edge of the insert. Not the padding--the stitching. Bummer. I called customer service and had an excellent conversation with Chris, who promptly sent me his email. We discussed options and I ended up ordering a Elite Endurance bibs, again in Tall. The Elite insert was in a more normal position and felt noticeably more densely padded, which is what I wanted. Chris was super helpful in explaining differences and product knowledge. FIVE STAR customer service that made this cross country purchase a great experience. Fit notes for others-- I am 6'2", 195lbs = tall and thin. My waist measures 35". I normally wear Large Pearl Izumi shorts, which have been my recent mainstay, though I have had some XL and XXL in other Euro brands over the years. I opted to go for the Medium Tall bibs from ATD, based on other reviewers' comments and I am VERY GLAD I did. I find the compression, especially in the legs, on the ATD bibs is not nearly as much as say my PI Attack shorts. I am confident there is enough stretch in the ATD's, I could fit into a small. As I said, I am tall and thin. So, IF you are in doubt, I'd suggest erring on the small side. Additionally, at 6'2", longer legs, I probably don't need the Tall version. I like shorts with longer inseams, but with the stretch of the ATD material, I have a 12" "installed" inseam, gaining an inch over the stated 11" inseam. The upper chassis is plenty roomy, too. Given the ease of dealing with Aerotech, my next bibs will be the standard (not tall) version, as I am confident that if the fit isn't to my liking, they will swap them out for me. Overall, I am pleased. I will definitely recommend to friends. If you happen to be on the fence about placing an order with ATD, I would say DO it! Odds are you will love what you receive and they are so willing to work with you to make it right if not.
ProsQuality fabrics Excellent stitching Substantial leg grippers Tall sizes will fit really tall folks. Very fair pricing US made AWESOME customer service!!!
ConsSizing runs big (in my opinion) Not as much leg compression as other brands (blame it on my skinny legs...) Forward chamois rotation (though it may have been simply how MY bibs were made) Waiting for shipping to get stuff to Washington State, when you KNOW you have some great stuff on the way. ;)

Great to find tall sized bike clothes
I am 6'8" and this fits me wonderfully. It is a great piece of equipment and it has moved to the top of my bike gear list. It seems well constructed but time will tell. I expect to buy more gear from Aero Tech in the future.

Aero Tech Mens Cycling Bibs Padded Bib Shorts TALL medium $79.95
First let me say the staff, emails, questions, etc, were all answered, no issues there. I have been buying and wearing the Garneau Neo Power BIb Medium for years, they discontinued them, they had a 11.5 inseam and that was what i was looking for. I ordered a L and a M and quickly sent the L back. The M length was just what i was looking but after that it went downhill. The chamois moves forward, i reach around back to see where it is and most of my rear is uncovered i reach around the front of the bib and the front / top of the chamois is moved up to my stomach. On the ride adjustments don't last long and a couple of times i have stopped to totally to readjust and they just don't seem to want to work for me. If it helps i am 6-2, 195, short torso with a long leg inseam. Too uncomfortable for me to ride.

mens cycling bibs
I really enjoy the fit of these bibs. I ordered a pair to fit my tall 6ft 4 in. frame. The only disappointment was a small tear in the fabric on one of the straps

Great fit, great function
I'm a really big guy, 6'8" 275#. I'm used to have to accept less than a perfect fit, especially on my bike, but the only downside to this bib short is that I didn't buy sooner. No more waistband rolling down and leaving my stomach exposed! Very comfortable and a pleasure to ridebin

Tall bib shorts
I have been wearing Aero Tech shorts and jerseys exclusively for about six or seven years. They are well made, wear very well, and fit my 6' 7" frame properly. I have not found any other brand that makes bibs and jerseys that fit as well as these. They are great!
ProsFit a tall man properly; very reasonably priced

It took me a while to find Aero Tech on line, but I'm glad that I did. I am 6'5" tall with a 36 inseam, and weigh 173lbs, and I purchased the medium-tall bibs. The leg is nice and long, the silicone grippers work well, the shoulder straps are comfortable, and the pad is excellent. If I wanted to be picky, I would request another 1-1/2" of length on the leg, and because of my weight, the shorts could be tighter. But over all, compared to all the shorts I've tried on in stores trying to find something that fits a taller person, these are by far the best fitting yet. I will definitely buy another pair, and would recommend these to anyone with the same fitting issues. Thanks Aero Tech!

I'm 6'3', 205lbs and ride 300km per week. I purchased size L and can honestly say they are the best bib shorts I have ever owned. By a country mile.

Best I have found
These just feel great and wear great day after day. I have 4 pair that I cycle through each week. I just don't consider buying anything else. I have a long torso and the tall bibs make it so much more comfortable. I use them for everything from a quick 20 miles before work to century rides on the weekend.

Great bib shorts.
They fit excellent, and are a pleasure to wear. I prefer an 11 inch inseam, which these have, and was happy to find them. My only recommendation is that it would be nice to have a pocket in the back for my cell phone.

Definitely sized for tall, stretches a bit with hard use, hard to determine correct size
OK, so I'm happy in being able to wear something that's sized for someone like me. What is keeping me from being entirely happy is the uncertainty about sizing. I had to read all of the other comments to even make a stab at it. Can't Aero Tech supply some basic measurements, like torso length? In my case, (6'4"/ 193 cm, 33" / 84 cm waist, taller in the torso than in the leg), a Medium fits well except it's a bit tight from shoulder to crotch. I might have tried a Large if I had known. The pad works well for me. I've had problems with other shorts with my widely spaced hip bones.
ProsLong inseam Good proportions
ConsSizing uncertainty After a long ride, or a second wearing without washing, the leg grippers don't work as well and it needs to be pulled down occasionally.

I ordered these from the UK as I have really struggled to get bib shorts that fit correctly. I'm 6' 6" tall with a 37" in seam (inside leg) measurements and 'standard' cycling shorts finish just below mid-thigh on me when out on the road. Far too much flesh on display for my liking and maybe for onlookers too. I went for the 'tall large' fit bib shorts from Aerotech in the hope that they would leave me feeling less exposed...and guess what....? They do! The leg length is great. They do ride up a little when on the road but I'm so much more comfortable than with anything else I've owned before. The overall fit for me is great and they look like a good quality product and were comfortable for a 43 mile ride I did in them. I save them for my weekend rides. The review loses a star because of the online price. They're great but not THAT great. Also, be aware if ordering from the UK you will need to pay import duty on this which, for me, was an additional £20 which puts these shorts in the expensive professional range price bracket. Delivery time was as expected although online tracking didn't seem to work for me. I'd love a second pair but the price is prohibitive.... for now! I hope this review helps in your choice.

Great for the taller cyclist
Bought these after purchasing other longer fitting cycling bibs and not really noticing any difference. These are definitely longer in the leg and body, so are a great improvement on the more well known brands. Good fit and well made with a nice pad.
ProsLonger body and leg and sizing guide is on the button.
ConsDidn't expect a hefty import tax on top of what I paid for delivery. So beware, if ordering in the UK.

Most comfortable. My favorite biking shorts.
Great for big and tall men. I'm 6'4", 289 lbs. and these fit me very well.
ProsThe bibs keep the pants up and are very comfortable.

Good fit, great for those with height
Quick personal stats; 6'5" 235lbs and wear a size Tall Large in these bib shorts. Well made product, breathes as good as my other cycling clothing. Little snug while standing upright but fit is great once you are curled over on the hoods/drops. Padding could be denser, but better than nothing. I expect these to last awhile and will likely purchase more.
ProsGreat for tall people Leg portion is longer than typical sizing
ConsChamois padding could be of a denser material

Exactly what I wanted
At 6'7" it's hard to get Knicks that don't look like aerobics tights, these are great and fit perfectly.
