Reviewed by Great South Bay Roadie from New York on Wednesday, July 2, 2014Glad I ordered one size up and went for the 2XL instead of my usual XL sizing based on other ST user reviews. These Italian-designed knickers run very narrow compared to usual American sizing. Strongly suggest ordering one size-up unless you're very slim. Good chamois padding and overall fabric compression. Fit was good for my 5'8" stocky frame, simple elegant design, not flashy. Very slightly too long in the leg for me but acceptably. I am only sorry I didn't get a 2nd pair of these 2XLCastelli bib-knickers with Sierra discount when they were available. Good quality, excellent value.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bill from colorado on Thursday, May 1, 2014Weird sizing? Runs very small, European cut.
Generally I wear a medium or a large in most other brands. Castelli just doesn't fit me well.
Even the xl was too tight in the waist.
Chamois is minimal.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Davist from Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 23, 2014I really like these, as others have said, be mindful of sizing, I have a 33" waist/39" hip and a large is "race fit" snug.. Chamois is the best one I have, not too thick and very comfortable. "Roubaix" fabric is wind proof and warm, I've worn these in the mid 30s (F) and been comfortable, they seem to be quite wind proof as well. Recommended.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Oscar from Upper Valley, NH on Monday, April 7, 2014So... I have been looking to get a spring & fall set of 3/4 bibs, looked at several brands (Pearl Izumi, Rapha). Rapha was out of my price zone as they are for most of us.
So I was quite pleased to find these on STP. Decided to pull the trigger on a special coupon (woohoo! 45% off! Hot [...]!) Figured with STP's awesome customer service and return policy, I couldn't go wrong.
Anyhow, out of the package, great. I have a pair of castelli bib shorts that are among my favorites for warm weather and these are now my cool weather jams. BUY YOUR SIZE! these are somewhat unforgiving so don't buy a size down and expect the spandex to be your friend because you will be disappointed. Allow me to emphasize - BUY YOUR SIZE! Great deal on a great bibset, get 'em before they're gone!
Reviewed by Pacific Northwesterner from Washington state on Friday, March 28, 2014Great knickers but the white graphics are more prominent that I expected. Returned.
