Won't do--winter is over here, though.

I'll wait until next fall to purchase winter cycling pants or a bib again. I, too, have noted that Canari tends to cut bike clothes somewhat small. I think it's fair to say that their bike clothes won't fit many larger people.

This won't do for me--the largest size works OK for me, and the fabric, etc, is OK--not the greatest, though. As so many noted here, the padding is located in the wrong place--unfortunately, it interferes when I re-mount my bike after stopping--thus, merely wearing this proves somewhat hazardous--in my case, anyway.

Somehow removing the padding and using good cycling shorts with this likely won't work, either: The bulge where the padding is likely still would interfere. I don't know why Canari designed this so badly. Maybe some clever seamstress tricks might work to fix this: The stitching where the padding is located is quite elaborate and difficult to fix--so unlike the remainder of the garment. Bummer!
