I really like the look of them and they are super comfy too. Similarly to previous reviewers I followed the size chart and ordered size M ( for UK size 10) but the bibs were too tight so I had to exchange them for size L. I had a small issue with my pair , where one of the logos started pilling off , after just one use but BoC sent me a replcement straightaway. Great customer service , a pleasure to deal with.
The XS fits perfectly and I’m so happy to have them for long days in the saddle.
I order the bibs short based on the size chart bit it fits short: too much compression in the legs in the shoulders. I think a size M can fits better but the wide of the silicon band will am 164, 52Kg. Chooced S size
Most important thing first - the pad: went on a short ride to test the pad on some already slightly sore skin! 75 miles later, all was well. Followed up with a hard 100 mile hilly and again, the pad performed superbly. No soreness or rub anywhere. This alone gives them 5 stars from me! The shoulder straps are soft, comfortable and sit well during riding.
Personal preference, these are a bit longer than I like but the fit around the leg is comfortable but reliable with no squeeze.
The mesh pockets on the shorts are good for carrying cards/money but they are see through and pocket contents show when you're tucked down in road ride position.
My only (constructive) criticism of all BoC kit is the sizing. Definitely order at least 1 size up, if not two. I'm a pretty standard size 10 and the medium shorts are only just viable and it's borderline whether I should have gone large!!
