I love these bibs! The chamois is rad, great for long rides. I find the fit to be quite flattering; the fabric is buttery soft, the leg finish is smooth, so it does not constrict my leg and create the dreaded sausage leg.
The one thing I would change is that the bib straps are quite flimsy; they're lightweight, laser cut Lycra with soft silicon gripper backing. They're so minimal that it almost makes the bib feel like you're wearing a short. While it's not uncomfortable, I do notice that when I'm riding the way the bib finishes in my mid-section... it kind of cuts in there and creates a bit of a pooch. But the fabric is so forgiving that this is ALMOST not an issue. I do prefer more traditional bibs that finish higher and have more support from the straps.
Updating those features (and maybe making the inseam 3" shorter, but I like short stuff) would give it a perfect 5. Truly, the fabric is otherworldly.
The iridescent heat transfer does start to crack and fade after only a few washes, but this doesn't bother me too badly.
