I have used various generations of PRO bibs over the years. To me they have proven to be a good balance of quality, fit, and price. These bibs have a new, more densely padded chamois pad that I think will work great for longer rides. My 59 year old butt felt great on the ride. The fabric seems a bit heavier than previous versions, and has a sort of wet seal or grippy feel to it when you put these on. It was a little harder to get them on and adjusted properly, and the shoulder straps twisted into ropes that had to be straightened out. The ragged edge approach made these feel a little less structured than previous generation bibs. Overall a slightly different feel compared to older versions, but still very comfortable. Graphics are very low profile, I miss the bold white Pearl Izumi logos.
I bought these bib shorts on a Daily special deal, and I am sorry I didn't buy 2! excellent fit, and compression, perfect chamois pad, without all of the bulky pillow -top stuff that so many others have. clean looks and comfortable for long & short rides.
I've been through so many shorts and bibs. I am the Dad-bod sort, 5-10, 180 and the large in this short is perfect. Not good, great. I have been through at least a dozen others and these are supreme. Great materials, great fit, easy care. Durable as well.
