The bib shorts fit spot

The bib shorts fit spot on. They were very comfortable and very airy in the summer heat. The pocket on the back can be a little difficult to reach if you do not have good shoulder mobility

The Men's Foundation bib short

The Men's Foundation bib short is a vital piece of my summer biking kit. This bib stays cool during the hot summer days we experience here on the South Coast of B.C. The bib straps fit perfect and the chamois is of the most comfortable I have ever worn. Multiple hours in the saddle in the hot sun are no problem when wearing these bib shorts. Best of all, they are nice and light and pair perfectly with my Slab shorts. Once again, a 5 star piece of riding kit from 7mesh!

These bibs are the next

These bibs are the next level. I tend to overheat a lot during this hot days on bike, but these help me with heat management and they are super comfy. Fit true size.

Chamois is pretty nice but

Chamois is pretty nice but straps are awful, too narrow and tend to bunch up which irritates. Straps are made of same mesh material as the rest of bib and while it breathes well, it doesn't hold shape or offer the stretch of normal bib straps. Material is airy and keeps you cooler under baggies than typical roadie bibs but straps make it a no go and wouldn't purchase again. Too bad as i like the fit and many other aspects but bad straps are a dealbreaker. Women's version has different straps that are much better, don't know why they don't use the same ones on the men's version!

I have been looking for

I have been looking for a lightweight, ventilated under shorts bib for a while, something with only back pockets. 7 Mesh foundation bibs hit the mark and I am not disappointed. I am interested to get some more time in them to see if anything jumps out of the pockets. Build quality and fit is excellent.

The most comfortable padded shorts

The most comfortable padded shorts I've used. I've just bought my 4th pair so that I always have some available when others are being washed.

Super comfortable chamois with awesome

Super comfortable chamois with awesome stretch throughout the short. However. the lowest seam at the base of the leg where it attaches to the leg band needs more stretch. All other seams stretch beautifully, except for this one. I notice this when I put these bibs on, and can see the compression line on my leg post ride. It doesn't really bother me through the ride. I'm surprised this seam wasn't designed with more stretch on an area where cyclists tend to have a lot of muscle.

I’ve been searching for something

I’ve been searching for something I could run under baggies and road bibs as under-shorts were not cutting it. The Foundation bib is super light and well vented with a surface that holds on to your baggies - ie: no more diaper-feel or baggies shifting around. I’ll be getting another pair. And maybe a pair of Farsides to throw on top!

Bought these about a month

Bought these about a month ago and have been extremely happy. They fit great and are very light under my baggies. The rear pockets are easy to access and hold everything I need them to. The chamois is comfortable but not too thick or big. Will definitely be adding another pair to the rotation in the near future.
