Strengths:    ~ Made extremely well
~ Durable shoulder straps - not cheaply made Spandex webbing
~ Strategic placement of compression fabrics
~ Perfect, form-fitting chamois does not feel like a sagging diaper
~ Night-reflective accents
~ Looks far more expensive than it really is
~ Excellent thermal, moisture-wicking material; cool when hot - warm when cold

Weaknesses:    ~ Jersey and straps must be removed, to urinate

Bottom Line:   
The very second I put these bibs on - I knew the fit was gonna be spot on. I have a husky, 170-pound build and these bibs make me look like a svelte, TdF rider, weighing a buck fifty, without any trace of discomfort. My first outing was a cold day and the bibs remained completely dry and chill-free. Bontrager now employs computer pressure-mapping of human anatomies in all stages of motion. The result is scientifically designed, high- performance inner/outerwear that rivals Castelli, Rapha, DeMarchi, Craft, Gore and Assos.

Strengths:    very comfortable, tight, fits well

Weaknesses:    hard to pee

Bottom Line:   
One of my favorite bibs. I'm 6'3, 190 lbs and XL fits perfectly -- tight in the legs but not tight in the bib section. Currently my favorite bib for long rides.
