Simply The Best!
Over the last several years, these 400 mile bib-shorts have been my only “go to” for logging 150+ miles per week. On road, off-road, mountain bike… Doesn’t matter. they are the perfect combination of comfort, support, and technical superiority. The best thing I can say about them is that you simply forget you’re wearing them. It’s the only thing I own in this category… A++
These shorts fit great, last long, and - can take punishment. I had three pretty tough crashes at this year’s Belgian Waffle Ride. Broke my thumb, filleted both knees - but these shorts held up. You can’t even tell that I crashed. Been using them for a few years - when a pair that I ordered never arrived (was stolen off the front porch) Customer Service sent me another pair for free. Since that occurrence three years ago, De Soto is the only cycling wear that I buy.
Still the best long distance bib I have found
I have purchased a pair of these every other cycling season (or there about) and have been consistently impressed by the way these bibs age. Despite being pretty hard on them and not really sticking to their washing instructions as much as I should they have held up very well, they retain most of the compression, the padding stays fluffy and centrally located. I have not has as much as a broken seam thread in 5 years ( and if there is an issue DeSoto's repair team is impressively fast). I recommend these to everyone I know that I know. The quality justifies the investment many times over in my experience.
These bib shorts hold up well and the sham is super comfortable. No irritation. No rubbing. Second pair. Always wait for the sale and then jump on it
