Craft Glow Bib Shorts - Women's

Embrace the heat.

You have a long-distance ride coming up and it looks like the afternoon is going to flirt with triple-digit temperatures. The Craft Women’s Glow Bib Short is pleased to hear this. The Glow incorporates several innovative technologies to protect your muscles and increase your stamina in cycling’s most demanding conditions. In addition to performance features, the Glow also features a few thoughtful touches to make your ride safer and more pleasant — like reflective trim to make you more visible and bib construction with hook closure for easy nature-breaks.

The main body fabric is a durable Lycra with excellent elasticity. Not only does the Glow reduce fatigue by holding the muscles in place to protect from the road’s relentless vibration, it provides support while you’re asking your muscles to push harder and harder mile after mile. The uppers are made with a highly breathable hexachannel polyester fabric. As this fabric promotes airflow, it works with your body to regulate temperatures and increase endurance. Craft also treated the bib short with Coldblack, which reflects the sun’s heat to maintain a cool surface temperature and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

The bib shorts are form fit and were designed with the moving body in mind. To this end, the panels have been cut to follow the anatomy of the body while in the cycling position. All of the seams have been flatlock stitched to minimize chafing, and the wide leg hems are silicone printed to keep the bibs in place without the irritation of thin elastic.

The bib shorts feature Craft's Performance chamois to keep you riding in comfort hour after hour. This multi-density chamois was sewn from three different densities of cushioning — strategically placed to relieve pressure and eliminate numbness. Not only does it provide support for your sit bones and cushioning for your soft tissue, it is also antimicrobial and moisture wicking to keep you cool and dry.

Feel extremely comfortable even in the heat. I will keep them!

Great shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I just wore these for a test ride, and they are fantastic. Very comfortable, and the drop seat is awesome. The sizing is pretty true to the chart. I was between a M and a L, and I am glad I sized up.

Pad in the wrong place

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: med

They are super comfy and the most expensive pair of shorts I've purchased to date. Unfortunately the pad is in the wrong place and my sit bones don't get any coverage. I'd return them but it's past the deadline.

Dreamy Fit!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

Again, bought as a gift for the mother, she had some feedback!

Like cycling in your jammies. I hardly noticed the front "straps" and didn't even notice the vertical piece down the back that connected to the upper edge of the shorts. Super dreamy!

Rear closure too fussy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size

Great fit, fabric, and padding, but the rear closure was too complicated. I thought I had it fastened but it popped open- and that was in the comfort of my own home. The thought of having to deal with a fussy little hook and eye-type closure in a ride event port-a-john on a 95 degree day was a deal breaker.

Great Shorts

My wife rides 1000 miles a year. She has never had a pair of shorts she liked...and has tried many. But she loves these.
