Great bibs but could be improved

These shorts are so comfy, and breathe well too. When combined with the Slab short I feel very free to move on the bike. The chamois is very short at the front - a friend who has the same says they are not suitable for drop bars resultantly. The pockets are the only point I'd suggest need work. They're big, and more durable than other storage bibs I've had, however are a bit too stretchy to store a water bottle/similarly heavy items. I'd not put anything I'm worried of losing in there either. Unfortunately combined with the single pocket on the Slab (understand the reason for this) this is quite irritating. I'd like to not store my phone and car keys in the same pocket! A small, zipped 'valuables' pocket would be great - this is one thing that other bibs I've tried have done better. This could also store a lift pass etc.

Great summer kit

The Foundation bib shorts perform as advertised. They are comfortable, fit well and run fairly cool under a pair of baggy shorts for mountain bike / gravel riding. First used them on a 37 degree Okanagan day and they made the ride bearable. GG

Best Ever

Found these at the thrift store for a couple of bucks. Took them home washed them, and did a 325km gravel race in them. Only took 200 km for the saddle sores to start, so thar was nice. I really appreciate the way the seams are sewn "inside out" in critical areas. Low back pockets means I can carry more stuff when not using a jersey.
