I'm 5'9" 160#. I ordered mediums and thigh and waist were find. Pad was a good size. Shoulder straps were TOO TIGHT. Ordered large, they aren't tight above the knee, and the pad is too wide feeling like a diaper and catching on the nose of my saddle. Great kit if I could find a fit.
The bib shorts performed as advertise. The material is supple and hip to knee hugged the leg. I would have preferred if the waist area was a little higher, but that would not deter from buying a second Nano Flex bib. Great for your cooler rides.
1st time trying Castelli, definitely not the last. Fit is perfect. Quality is top notch. I wanted to make an investment since I was spending so much time on the bike. I'm never going to sell my ass short again.
This bib short perform as described. The XL fit was snug but not restrictive. a go to bib for cooler temperatures!
