Great base layer for hot weather. I got black so it can be washed with my other kit after a ride.
One problem: it fits snugly, making it difficult to remove when it's wet after a ride. Unless you're careful, your fingernails can tear the mesh.
Great design, the Pro chamois is the best I have tried, super comfortable on 3 hour plus rides. But as with most of my recent PI purchases, assembly quality has nose dived. Not sure if they moved their manufacturing facilities or what. One season on both PI Expedition shorts and Pro Bibs, the chamois pad stitching has begun to unravel, and the Bibs have developed a 1/2 dollar size hole right in the seat area, making them unrideable. Another order of PI socks had a hole in the toe out of the box (they did replaced those). Really unfortunate, so I have been switching to Rapha on sale items when I can find them.
Construction, fit and feel are superb with this bib short. The pad, arguably the most important element, may be controversial since it is relatively thick....even very thick. But its nicely made and stays in place regardless of riding the bike or walking around. I found the pad a little too thick for my anatomy, at least in the perineal area, and I prefer the thinner version in the non C2 bib (ordinarily Mille bib). But that doesn't mean this C2 pad is too thick, because it is well liked by many who own and swear by it. The pad is like many clothing garments and items, we all have a preferences. The GTO C2 is a fine bib and one that I think should be tried first before buying, if its possible which is probably not the case. Even so, it's entirely wearable so one is not likely to be disappointed to the point of leaving it in the drawer.
This is a comfortable, good-fitting glove. I generally wear a medium glove, and while this is perhaps slightly snug, it's not overly so. I like that it breathes well and dries quickly. My only small complaint (which is why I'd rate it 4.5/5) is that while two fingers have tabs to help remove the glove, there is no tab on the thumb, and some assistance is definitely needed there! However, I will definitely be a repeat customer when the gloves need to be replaced.
