I've looked for years for

I've looked for years for this short! It's exactly what I want: a liner bib short that I can pull down for bio-breaks! Just note it's still a bit of a gentle pull-down, not a yank, but the shorts are very comfy and very convenient. For reference, the fit is base layer-style, body-hugging and I'm 5'4", 118 lbs, and wear size XS.

Super light, breathable and comfortable

Super light, breathable and comfortable liner! It’s good on a MTB or gravel ride, I don’t know what I was doing without it before!

Not cheap but worth the

Not cheap but worth the price for a well-made light and breezy chamois. Really comfy bib straps - stays up but no pulling on my shoulders, don’t notice it under a pack. Only issue is that I don’t find it as easy as advertised to pull these down to pee trailside.

While the WK3 cargo bibs

While the WK3 cargo bibs are my favourite for long rides or multi-day trips, I love these for shorter outings, especially in hot weather as the mesh design allows for lots of airflow when worn under shorts. The chamois is comfortable and doesn't budge at all!

I heard some mixed reviews

I heard some mixed reviews on these guys, mostly on the fit of the pad against the butt and the shape. Oh boy, they were SO wrong. Extremely comfortable and I beyond adore the breathability on these guys, especially with this heat, they have become my absolute fave bib. The only comment is that women tend to have long legs, but shorter torsos. I would love to see some way to adjust the length of the straps, as I have a relatively short torso and the straps don't provide AS much tension as I would like them to for a more comfortable fit. Regardless, they are still my fav :>

I purchased these bib shorts

I purchased these bib shorts about a month ago. I love them. They’re well made and super comfortable. I actually don’t even notice I have them on when I’m on my bike. I like how the leg cuff stays put but doesn’t cut into my skin. I’m looking forward to seeing how the mesh performs in the summer, but I suspect it’ll be cooler. Also the bib fits in general with nothing bunching up around my waist. I’d recommend these to anyone.

Definitely enjoy the breathability of

Definitely enjoy the breathability of these shorts (why I wanted to give them a try)...but did not enjoy the chamois- did not find them them comfortable as it seems to have a lot more coverage towards the back than the front. I also am usually a size small and these fit large....as the mesh seems to stretch more and makes the short feel larger. Definitely prefer the WK2 bibs (I love them) to these and would not purchase them again.

This bib short is great

This bib short is great for mountain biking. Lots of ventilation and good length under my mountain bike short, hits above the knee. Note the legs are made of mesh material, I didnt realize this when I purchased but it worked out. I am typically a size large but needed to size down to a medium. Hoping the mesh will endure all the falls over time.

I'm a big fan of

I'm a big fan of bibs for enduro / all mountain riding - I find standard chamois shorts often end up with gravity pulling down and causing them to bunch in not so pretty places, where bib shorts come up higher, stay put, and give you that nice flat yoga pants feeling. These particular bibs are beautifully made, and very comfortable both on and off the saddle. The fabric, compared to most other bibs is way more breathable, and the wide leg bands stay in place and don't pinch. If you're worried about sizing, I'd say go to the larger size as they fit true to size, but perhaps a bit on the trimmer side of the scale. Great bibs for your everyday rides or those longer grinds in the saddle!

I didn't ride with a

I didn't ride with a chamois for years because I was more uncomfortable with the lack of air flow etc until ... The foundation bib short came into my life. Padding where you need it and fresh air where you don't. Life changing. Now I just need a couple more for daily riding.
