Sizing Information for Altura Clothing:
First bib shorts I've ever owned but roughly 100 miles in I have no complaints, very comfortable, good price and Merlin service is faultless. I am 5'9" and 60 Kg "climber" build and the small is a good snug fit.
Good quality and comfortable at a reasonable price. My first pair of Bib shorts so nothing to comapre against but I'm happy.
Great value.... Very comfortable, the gel inserts make a world of difference.
Great deal! Took a little while to get used to the gel pads. Fit is good as well as the quality of construction.
Very comfy shorts. Fit is true to size. (I have other Altura XL items and they all fit really well).
Great price and fast delivery as usual from Merlin.
A very nice pair of bib shorts which have a great Gel insert that prevents any of the sit bone pain I was getting from my cheaper shorts.
One word of warning about sizing though... I wouldn't describe them as being sized small but they were definitely a 'neater' fit than the pair of Funkier Gel Bibs I bought. Great when they're on on, really well made and very comfortable.
I'm 5'7"' 33" waist with 22" thigh and on the lower half these were very snug, this does not mean they weren't comfortable as once on there was no shifting around just some people may prefer a little looser. Quality of the gel pad is ok but there seemed to be a ' squelchy' feel coming from them if shifting in the saddle, doesnt detract from the comfort and the gel pad is not leaking at all. In summary I think they are good value for money
These are simply great bib shorts. They are very comfortable & the fit is superb. I can't believe the price - easily as good as some much more pricey competitors. Merlins extra web discount undercut every where else by a mile & I will definately buy from them in the future on other items.
great value,very comfy,excellent service
I've always used bib shorts but I usually purchase what's on offer rather than what's best for me and I've suffered a lot of discomfort in the saddle because of this approach. This time I did a little research and decided on the Altura Progel Bib because of the extra padding and the reasonable cost. I've been using these bibs for a couple of weeks now and I am totally satisfied with my choice. Good fit, good quality and very comfortable. Tidy!
36" waist so went for the large, but too tight round the legs. These are designed for the more typical slender cycling physique, so if you're chunkier than average in the legs you'll need to go up a size.
Excellent service once again from Merlin.Shorts by Altura,are very well made,and very comfortable for long distance,off road cycling,especially with gel insert.Cheapest
price I could find.Bought second pair straight away.
Quality pair of shorts with nice thick comfortable padding. Fit is about right, I'm 6' around 13 stone & got the Large.
Usual fantastic price & service from Merlin.
Would definitely recommend although I do prefer my Lussos.
Very comfy, great fit. For the money are a great pair of bib shorts and will more than likely order another.
