    I would buy this item again. Size is the key however - I am 6'2" and 205 lbs - buy the XXL for the most comfortable fit. Size up if you are on the fence between sizes - you wont likely regret the decision.

      Sizing is the key with this item: I am 6'2" and 205 lbs - I ordered the XXL and I was satisfied. Definitely order a size up from your normal fit.

        has a water repellent layer, not as breathable as others for that reason- likely good light rain shorts

              My body type is a bit more stout than most - 5'11" - 205, 36" waist, 44" suit jacket and I was well advised by other commenters to order a larger than expected size, and so I ordered an XXL, but I think an XXXL idea wouldn't have been a bad idea.

              I listened to the other reviews and purchashed bibs 2 sizes larger. Great fit. These are the most comfotable bibs I have owned to date. I have purchased team gear from pro teams to get the best. Sad to say these bibs put them all to shame. I liked them so much I ordered more pairs. I put on a lot of miles and Santini will be my new go to for bibs going forward. I can stay on the bike comfortably for hours. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!

              What I wanted and expected for the price

                    Comments about Santini 1072 GIT CX Gel Bib Shorts:

                    First, concerning sizing, I'm 6'2 and ordered the XL based on a previous pair of Sanitni bibs. The legs fall slightly higher above the knee than other bibs and shorts I've worn. I have a 34" inseam, and these bibs sit approximately four inches above the knee. The torso, however, is noticeably short, though not uncomfortably so. It does, however, mean that nature breaks will require bit of finesse.

                    I've worn these a number of times since purchasing them. My longest ride in them to date was 125 miles. The pad feels slightly wider than those in other bibs I've used. It isn't the most comfortable pad I've ever encountered, but it isn't bad, and I have no complaints thus far. If I have second thoughts following longer rides in the future, I'll update my review accordingly.

                    The quality appears good. My other pair of Santini bibs have held up very well, and I have no reason to expect anything different from these.

                    As is the case with my other Santini bibs, they are not as well ventilated on the back panel as they could be, and therefore they feel a little warm.

                    I have owned several sets of these bibs over the last several years. For the sub $100 price range, these are tough to beat. Better yet when Nashbar runs a 20% off sale...grab them! I am 5'10" and 185. The large fit me perfect. I ride thousands of miles a year and I love having these in my bib rotation. They support well and the chamois works well. I have used very expensive bibs and I'd rather buy three sets of these bibs. If the sizing works for you, I think you can't go wrong.

                      Comments about Santini 1072 GIT CX Gel Bib Shorts:

                      Product appears to be poorly made and the sizing is incredibly small. I usually wear an XL bib, ordered the 2XL in Santini as recommended in other reviews, but the product was still way too small!
                      The shoulder straps seem to be designed for a rider with a very short torso.
                      Bad design overall!

                      Runs Small - Otherwise Great

                          Great bibs so far, but definitely snug. I'm 5'6", 120 lbs with a 30" inseam. The shorts are a good length, but the torso is short. If the straps were even 1 cm shorter I wouldn't be able to wear them. That being said, they have remained comfortable on 70 minute roller sessions. My advice would be to buy a size up, but do buy these bibs if you're thinking about it. I don't find the padding to be bulky and the material is nice and slick, so there's very little friction against the saddle.
