    Novara Ferrero Bike Bib Shorts - Men's is rated 3.7692 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great begginer bibs First off I never give 5 stars as there is always room for improvement. 4 stars is as close to great as I rate, so 3 stars is pretty darn good. I purchased these bibs after a lengthy discussion with the REI sales rep. He said bibs are the most comfortable way to go. I have a pair of Norava Strada shorts and really like the chamois, so I thought I would try these. I did not want to spend big $$ on PI not knowing if I would like the bibs. I don't like them, I love them. I ride about 50-70 miles a week in the FoCo area which includes some nasty hill climbs, but that does not mean I don't enjoy the occasional beer and burger. Meaning I have a small micro beer and burger gut. The shorts are comfortable but the waist line always rubs, which makes the climb up the Horsetooth Reservoir dam all the more painful. These bibs remove the waistline from the equation, not to mention they make the form fitting jersey fit all that much better. My only complaint is that the shoulder straps are...less than comfortable. They are actually a little itchy at first. After a 5 miles or so they feel fine. IF you are thinking about moving on to bibs, you can't beat these for the $$. I an not tall (5'8) but about 15lbs over weight and the mediums place the chamois in the right spot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bib shorts good for the price I have a pair of the Strada shorts and like them a lot. Recently I started moving towards using bibs only, so after discovering that REI had the same (almost) shorts in a bib (the Ferreros), I decided to get them on the spot. The shorts are really good, so I compared the differences between them and the new bibs. Same padding, same number of panels, almost exact same material. Two differences I found, one the middle panel in the legs seem to be a little different in material, I like the stradas better, although I don't think it makes a difference. Second, the stitch in the chamois. The bibs have a zig zag stitch which is weaker (in my opinion) versus the double one in the shorts. I've found that the zig zag stitch will start to tear sooner compared to the double stitch seen in the Stradas. Other than this, the bibs feel confortable. I've used them a couple of times and like them a lot. Lastly can't beat the price specially when it can be combined with the dividen and extra % off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I have worn these shorts for a few weeks. I have not worn bib shorts before, and was convinced by another REI reviewer's post to buy these. They are simply great. They are very comfortable, good fit around legs, bib straps certainly make the crotch fit correctly during the entire ride, with no discomfort at all from the straps-you don't even feel them. These were way cheaper then most other bib shorts but cannot imagine why I would buy more expensive ones.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like them Started taking long rides in warmer weather and picked these ups on an impulse. Paid full price and have enjoyed them. I wear them with a T shirt and sometimes under light shorts, but most often not. I honestly don't like taking a long ride without them. The seams popped a little on the bib a little the first time I put them on but not in any way that impacted the performance of them. I was on the edge of not fitting in the medium size I bought but am glad I go that size

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice for the price I didn't believe that wearing bibs would make such a difference over standard cycling shorts until I tried these. The support is excellent, the chamois is very comfortable, and the leg cuffs do not stick even on my unshaven legs!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bib Shorts Excellent product that I routinely wear on long road rides. They fit well and are comfortable and the suspenders keep them in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good training bib This is a very comfortable, lightweight bib and I would recommend it for a training bib or general riding. It feels a little to flimsy for a hardcore ride or a race as they tend to ride up my legs. This is not an issue with tights on during colder rides.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Bib Shorts for the price I ride about 150 miles a week and after using a winter bib and enjoying the fit and feel I want to try a bib shorts. For the price these are impossible to beat, at about 70-50% the price of any other brand, and it doesn't come at the cost of quality. Although not as nice as a high-end bib or short, its pretty comparable in performance. The padding is a bit thick, but comfortable. My guess is the was a quality vs comfort issue with cost control, and in the end, although you are wearing something thick, once you are in the saddle you don't really notice it. The legs came up a bit short on me, but I kind of have odd proportions with most of my height in my upper body. Those who wear XL and really need the inseam might find this a bit short, for me it was a close call but it fits pretty well. The material is not too elastic, so I'm not sure how well it will wear over time, but 1.5 months in these are still in good shape, over all comfortable, and like I said, you can't beat this price in bib shorts.
