Merlin Wear Sizeguide

Great shorts I've just started riding and bought a few bibs from various sources and these came out top trumps! Good padding Good fit.
Comfortable, size chart spot on
To be honest I bought these just to try out the sizing. I am 200cm tall with a 38cm waist. Having not bought bib shorts before - I thought I would give the basic core bibs a go before going to a more custom tall fit. Choosing the XXXL based on height recommendation I was pleasantly suprised with the fit. The straps aren't tight and are comfortable to wear. The pad is OK for short commutes. I am used to another "house brand" shorts which feel tighter and ever so slightly longer in the leg., but these are great. Will look at the sport and elite models for my next purchase (and longer distances).
Although I ordered 3XL they did run small.
Excellent and very comfortable to wear. I must order another another one. Highly recommended.
Bib shorts for less than 20 quid? Not being someone who likes to waste money on 'designer ' items I thought I would try them. I'm a stocky 5 ft 7in and 172lbs (20 % body fat) and the medium fits perfectly. Quality is surprisingly good and I like the plain design with minimal branding. For me the pad is good for about 50 miles before it starts to get too uncomfortable. To summarise, great for your shorter fast rides, has to get 5 stars for the price.
Bargain shorts, comfortable for rides under 2 hours.
I wore this several times since I got it, and it is an amazing cycling shorts. Superb durability, comfortable to wear and nice to look at. Wash and wear, and ready to go for another ride.
Second purchase of these bibs. After receiving the first pair, I just needed a second...that's how good they are!
Ordered a medium, 80kg 176cm male and they fit nicely, went on a 35 mile ride the other day and for the shorter rides (3-4 hours) they are perfect
I ordered M size what a good fit for 1.86 Male / 73 kg. Lovely and modest design, pad is comfortable and fits well. Definitely recommended.
Very comfortable and light, liked them so much I bought the matching jersey!
Great fit, fit nice everywhere. I'm 6' 230lbs for reference. Hopefully these wear nicely and last a while. Pad is medium to thinner maybe about average thickness they look nice. Had to order some for my wife she liked them so much!
At this price excellent quality. Better stuff around but it costs a lot more and this is fine for 2-3 hour rides.
It fits perfectly, comfortable and most of all it doesn`t cost as much. These bib shorts are intended for short rides (40-50 miles). Pad is not that thick but it will help you get to a short destination.
I was skeptical that you could get good bib shorts for this price, I was wrong. These are awesome, so good I ordered a second pair.
First time wearer of Bib shorts and now totally converted. Core bib shorts have provided extra protection, warm, comfort and support to my lower back compared to shorts - I choose XL and I'm, 6'3 and 92 kg (great fit) . After several rides and washes the fit feels more relaxed with a little more give in the straps and top half area. The shorts area still provides good support around the legs and derriere
A surprisingly comfortable and well manufactured bib shorts at it's price range. Strongly advised.
Excellent product. Delighted with quality and Merlin service. Very comfortable, ideal for short and long rides and a great fit. Ordered 2xl size and fit is perfect. Will certainly order more.
Fit is great and the bib breathes well. Padding is adequate for short rides.
Excellent value for money. Comfortable fit for my MAMIL physique. Well shaped chamois pad. Not going to get me a stage win at Le Tour, though not likely to enter either. Another excellent delivery service from Merlin.
First time I've bought anything from Merlin. The product is good value for the price. It is a good fit, although best to go one size larger. Comfortable and enough padding. Good length of fabric on the back if your top is short.
Great shorts for the price appear to be manufactured to a very high standard. Only ridden around 250 miles in them so far but no signs of wear
Entry level shorts. Good enough for a commute and survived a 20-miler too. Excellent value for money.
I don't know how they will hold up to the miles yet, but they were very comfortable on my first ride. My crotch thanks you. The price can't be beat.
Thought I would take a gamble on this with it being a new clothing range. I was very impressed well made and comfortable sizing is about right as well. Would recommend to anyone
