    Runs Small - Otherwise Great

        Comments about Santini 1072 GIT CX Gel Bib Shorts:

        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.

              Great quality and comfort. I'll definitely get another pair in the near future. They run a little tight on the quads area but not uncomfortably.

              Great worksmanship and material. Sized too small and short. I'm 5' 10" and 200 lbs. Wear Large in some brands and XL in others. This is tight at XXL for me. And the shoulder straps are real snug (short). If you can get your fit right, highly recommended.

                Had to reorder a size up because first pair were too tight on my thighs. Next pair fit great and chamois had enogh padding to propel me through a 63 mile ride with no chaffing. Would deffinately buy again.

                These are durable and well constructed bibs. You will get many miles with these. The only catch is the sizing. I am 6'1 and 180 lbs and I usually wear an XL in cycling bibs. I should have gotten a XXL in this brand. I can wear them but it is nearly impossible to take a rest stop pee. Heed my warning. Buy them and enjoy but go big.

                    Do not buy these if you are over 5ft10". I am 5ft 11' 185lbs with a 34" waist. I ordered the large per the sizing chart and they were too tight in the legs and too short in the torso. I exchanged the L for an XL. These were still way too short in the torso. I could hardly get the straps over my shoulders. I wasn't impressed with this bib.

                        3 hours of comfort in the saddle. Looking forward to 5-6 hours next weekend.

                        Good bibs with gel chamois. They feel durable. Quality stitching and overall manufacture. The fabric is a little heavier than I'd expected. But it still lets me "sweat it out" and the tags say it's a water repellant fabric.

                        The fit- I'm 5' 7", 160 lbs, 29-30" inseam. These run small. I got a Large and the fit is perfect! Normally I'd wear a medium in just about anything.

                        Beware that they have a fairly high rise in the front. Good to add support to the abs, but a bit awkward when taking a "dehydration" break ;-) You have to really pull down on them if you're not removing the shoulder straps.

                          My second time buying Santini Bibs and they are still my go to Bibs for long rides. Comfort and fit are second to none in my opinion.
