Great bib shorts, but the compression is both the pro (wow-slimming!) and the con (on a long ride might start feeling uncomfortable) in this case. On a big long climb I am not really a fan of having to think about my cycling shorts! I however did, after about 2 hrs of riding. I would not go up a size though, as they are already on the long side. Nevertheless, the quality is as always with BoC absolutely superb, and I will be very happily wearing them for shorter training rides.
I entered my first Audax and wore these shorts. They performed brilliantly! Love the fit and they were so comfortable during a very hilly ride. The back pockets were handy for storing my arm warmers.
I am 5’7” and size 10 and the size medium fit great
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
