Castelli fan, these are fragile

Reviewed by Avid roadie from New York on Saturday, July 9, 2016
I am a Castelli fan, overall.

As most know (short version): 1) runs small, even for road/climber build. 2) Decals tend to come off, even when hand washed, cool water, proper soap.

These Body Paint bibs are nice, but seem more fragile than most of Castelli clothing. For this, a 4 or 3.5 star rating.

Other helpful notes:
1) Castelli cuts for racer fit - slim and lean - more so for these. Takes a bit of adjustment to properly get into.
2} The back of the bib portion is high, so could be uncomfortable on hotter days.
3) Bib braces are wide, thin and like a silicone impregnated fabric. They are angle outward/wide to shoulder. Some will dislike, others will like this. I find it OK, but wonder about comfort on hot days.
4) Leg grippers are wide, probably 2.5 to 3 inches. Similar to Garneau which I like a lot, but Castelli uses the silicone fabric. Some will not like the feel. Could be warm on hotter days.
