The bibs for pushing it to the limit.
Made to meet Castelli's high standards for comfort and performance in a cycling short, the Men's Unlimited Bib Short meets these expectations all while adding a few extra features that come in handy for riding on any surface. You'll find an exceptional fit as well as the KISS Air2 seat pad, which provides generous anatomically placed padding with an exceptionally soft top layer.
What makes this short special is the extremely durable Unlimited Lycra® fabric. It has higher abrasion resistance and tear resistance while not compromising on the stretch, moisture management or comfort.
Taking the old track rider's trick of wearing two layers of Lycra, these bibs use double-layer side panels to create the fabric-sliding-on-fabric trick, should you fall. This short isn't really meant to be indestructible, but it significantly increases the chances that sliding out on gravel will mean you need to just brush yourself off rather than having to buy a new pair of shorts.
That second layer on the side panel also makes for convenient side pockets, with a flap over the top to prevent the contents from falling out. For added convenience, while riding on and off-road, you have two mesh pockets on the lower back that compress gear next to your body to keep it from bouncing around.
This short adds durability and storage without compromising comfort — for unlimited amounts of fun.

200 g/m2 nylon/Lycra® fabric with best-in-class abrasion and tear resistance

Great endurance bibs - Castelli quality at a great value.
At the regular price, these are a great value comparable to many quality brand's entry level bibs.
The double layer of these bib shorts appealed to me. I purchased these immediately after a telephone cable knocked loose from a pole by a truck clothes-lined me and caused a crash. Fortunately, my injuries were minor (a raw scar on the neck and a sore throat, as well as a scratch on my hip) but I did get a hole in the bib shorts - something I'm hoping will not occur with this short. Having the options of pockets are nice as well - great for fuel or phone - although with my history, I would put the phone in a jersey pocket rather than where I tend to land in a crash...
As for fitment, I am 6'-0", 32" waist, and 180 lbs. My body shape is weird - I have a long torso and used to be 60 lbs heavier, making my rib cage large for my body. I fit a large in this bib short, and would judge them to be just a little smaller than a medium in brands that fit true to size. I do like the extra compression of the slightly tighter fit, the double layer of material will give you a compression feel as well. Compared to the Entrata entry level bib short, I feel that they are built just a little larger. The straps over my longer torso are fitted, but not uncomfortable. That being said, I believe an XL would probably fit as well if wanted a more relaxed fit.
As for the other features. The chamois is the Kiss Air 2, Castelli's entry level chamois - but is still the nicest one I have in my closet. I have ridden a combination of on and off road rides of ~40 miles with little discomfort. I can only imagine what the nicer chamois' are like... The leg grippers are vertical silicone strips on an un-stitched cuff - incredibly comfortable and grippy. Along with the two side pockets, there are two mesh pockets at the lower back area, allowing you to wear a T-shirt or MTB jersey and still carry your stuff.
Finally, I like the relatively little branding... especially for a Castelli garment A single logo on you left thigh and the word "Unlimited" stamped above your butt - easily covered by a jersey or shirt.

Excellent all around BIB at a great price.
Great fit and very comfortable for long (3 plus hours rides). The side pockets are very convenient. These provide better and easier access to nutrition particularly when you're hammering those pedals.
