I like the overall fit of thise bibs which are the same size as the shorts I'd purchased yet are not as snug. These fit exactly as I'd expected a medium to fit. I'm not sure I'm wild about this style of straps however, the single strap up the middle, but they are comfortable! I wonder though about how well they'd work with someone taller. I am only 5' 4" and I'd say the suspenders are a comfortable length on me.
