Sizing Information for Altura Clothing:
Very high quality bibs for a reasonable price. Will be ordering more in the future. Chamois looks like the ones from higher priced shorts.
Bought them in the sale, and I'm very impressed with them; they're very comfy and fit well. The pad is comfortable and the shorts don't ride up at all, so I love them. I was worried about the white colour going yellow or dirty after a few washes, but they've stayed nice and white.
Purchased to use on my turbo in the house as the specialized I was using are worn out. They are very good and don't see why you could not use them on 100mile plus rides.
Great value for money.
Very snug fit all over and good pad
I am 5"10' and have 100/39.3 chest, 91/35.8 waist, 98/38.5 hips, and 82/32.2 inseam. Took a large. They are tight fit but comfortable as you expect from a cycling garment. I can't say they are uncomfortably snug. A medium would be too small for me and a XL would be too big. The pad seems decent and supportive though a little wide around the sit bones (not a problem for me). Overall, they are well worth buying and Altura sizing is dependable when you have your measurements right.
Usual high Altura quality, nice lightweight bib shorts, excellent ErgoFit padding and effective but comfortable leg grippers. Highly recommended, especially at Merlin's current price.
I'm 5ft 11, with a 36 inch chest and 30 waist and these bib shorts fit perfectly. The straps are the front are tight when stood upright, but are super comfy when in the cycling position. Absolute bargain from Merlin Cycles.
Nice fit, looks good would recommend
Another great bargain from Merlin, comfy shorts fit and ride well. Pad seemed hard at first but has softened after a couple of rides. White is the predominant colour so maybe not the best for wet rides. I'm 6ft 2in and skinny and the Large are a good snug athletic fit. My first Altura bibs - highly recommended, especially at Merlin prices!
Very good shorts. It is really nice material and good fittings. I took LARGE and perfectly fit to my built.
These are good shorts for the summer, they're very thin and have a sculpted fit. The padding in them is comfortable. I bought two pairs, and on one pair, the padding doesn't seem to fit as well, despite them being the same size. The shorts don't ride up as they have the grippy bits on the ends. At full price, comparing them to something like the Pearl Izumi Raceline, I'd go with Pearl Izumi as the quality is much better...I got them at 38.99, when Merlin had them discounted and at that price they're a very good buy. I can't comment on how well they will last, as I've only had a dozen or so rides on them, but they seem to wash well.
