It's really a fall weather item, much more of a compression fit different fabric than my other summer socks, more like the Bonka. The red is certainly bright but that color was on sale and I'd buy another pair if these didn't wear so well - but they will.
Use this set of bibs weekly for 40-60 mile rides. Compression is just right, not too tight or loose. I like the lower cut up front for easier bathroom stops. Inside of right leg is showing some abrasion and pilling after 2 rides, but hopefully it holds up and doesn't wear through quickly. These are more comfortable (straps, chamois, leg-grippers) than my range of Castelli and Voler bibs.
