Great fit and construction, comfortable pad, made in the USA! And pockets! My new favorite bibs!
My husband is 5'6" tall and approx 260 lbs (all weight around middle plus he has a painful hernia) and I ordered him the XL size. We have started cycling for our health (and fun). He was having problems keeping shorts up because his belly would push them down - the waist would roll and he would worry about plumber butt...makes for a worrisome not very fun or relaxing ride.
Fast forward to these bibs....THEY ARE PERFECT for him! He loves them! They fit perfect over his belly and hernia area and he can go on a relaxing ride without worrying about mooning riders behind him. I ordered him these and one other brand. While both fit nicely THIS pair is his favorite! He is also loving the mesh pockets - what a great idea! The chamois is not as substantial as his regular shorts but he says the all around fit of the bib more than makes up for it. Right now we are riding regularly between 10 - 15 miles and his seat bones still get ouchy so maybe once he gets more conditioned in the seat bone area he will have a different opinion about the chamois.
Is he glad I ordered these? YES!
Does he want me to order him another pair? YES!
Does it matter if they are made in the USA? YES!
Is he happier while riding? YES YES YES!
Does he recommend these to others with the same 'ample apple' physique? YES!
Thank you Aero Tech for such a great product that has made our rides together much more enjoyable! We both spend more time looking around at cool things along the trail than worrying about making sure shorts are pulled up.
The quality of the shorts and the pads in them are great. But I bought these specific bib shorts for the pockets. But the pockets are so big they're useless to me.
The quality of these did shorts is great. The main reason I wanted these ones though it's for the pocket to be able to reach my cell phone quickly if I wanted to. But the size of these pockets makes it useless for holding my cell phone. The death of the pockets is great. But just way too wide. Looking for a new pair.
Second pair I’ve purchased. Will continue to buy!
I love them. The side pockets are great and very comfortable. First ride with them was about 5 hours and I could have gone longer.
It’s hard for larger riders to find comfy cycle wear. These are supremely comfy, I can wear them for miles and miles with no complaints. The mesh pockets on the legs..... genius!! Extra handy!!
Will be a lifelong customer!
First time wearing bibs. Between the bib design, the gel padding and upscale materials, comfortable for the long-haul
the essentials are great, fit, padding and durability. The mesh pockets are the real bonus. Keeping important items close, secure and readily accessible.
These bib shorts fit great and I use them for commuting or bike camping. The pockets are handy to shove a wallet or other items for quick stops.
Fits as expected and quality made
