The Q36.5 Vented Bibshort is the L1 Essential's extreme-condition sibling, a minimal version of the vaunted short designed for hot conditions without making concessions to compression and fit. Using two vented panels on the bib's legs that offer 50 SPF protection from the sun's rays, it also uses a minimized version of Q's trademark proprietary chamois, designed to dry quickly under high-perspiration conditions.
Aesthetically, the Vented Bib is nearly identical to the L1 Essential, bearing the same woven polyamide gripper as its relative in the line. As with all things Q36.5, the Vented Bibshort is designed and made in Italy.
