The Chpt. /// bibs are made of luscious, thick, soft fabric. It makes a pair of cheap team kit bibs feel like Oreo filling being stacked up against gourmet buttercream on a $50,000 wedding cake. It's silky, luxurious even, and the same fabric is used in the straps, with the same thick, heavy feeling. The waist has ornate hemming, and it's compressively slimming without a lot of stretch. The bibs are built like Castelli's Bodypaint bibs, a single piece of fabric with but a single stitch running up the back of the leg, with a gripper that stays in place without any binding or stickiness.
The Bibs also use Castelli's proven X2 chamois, which is stitched through the bottom to keep the short in the right spot on the pad. This also keeps it from catching on the nose of the saddle during any standing efforts, a complaint we often lodge. Thanks to all of it, we never had a single complaint when it came to comfort. They are cut rather long. Our test mule is 6 foot 1" with a 35" inseam and long femurs. The size 32 bibs came in just above his knees.
