I just started riding and this is my first bib purchase. I had my eye on another brand but for the price of this one currently I chose to go with it. I will be ordering the other for a better comparison. The order came much faster then expected making me so happy and I used the size chart which for me was a perfect fit 5'8" flux between 135lbs - 155lbs. Feels amazing and wow do I stay cool on my long rides. I am very impressed and happy with the brand and bib. Well worth the $$$, I will update as time goes on since I have only had 2 opportunities to use.
I purchased these bibs during the big sale. My first Sportiful purchase. These are European sized. I read the reviews, and ordered a size bigger than my American size and the bibs fit well. The fabric is soft and stretchy, very breathable (good for hot weather), but without a lot of compression. I prefer a tighter compression feel so this is a small negative for me. I also wonder a little about the durability in the inner thigh area when rubbing against the seat, because the fabric is so lightweight and soft. Only time will tell. The feel good though. The liner is good...not the best I've worn, but it should do nicely for 2-3 hour rides. Overall, for what I paid, I am happy.
My first choice in bibs are Giordana FRC, but these compare nicely for a fraction of the price. I also own Castelli Free Aero Race bibs, but I prefer the inserts in these Sportful Bodyfit Classics. Nice compression too. You don't really think about them during the ride.
Bought these bibs on a whim. Glad I did. Terrific compression but not too tight. Straps are not annoying like some. Pad is comfortable. They were so good I bought 4 pair. Size guide is right. Went one size up to XL.
