Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant quality bibshorts I’m a big fan of Le Col kit, it looks great, is well designed and put together and my previous purchases were the Sport bibshorts and the long sleeve skin suit, the latter for the track. The HC bibshorts are better than the Sport in all respects except for the chamois pad. It’s narrower than the one in the Sport and I wasn’t expecting that. I use a 155 saddle and the HC pad just misses by sitbones as they rest on the outer fringes of the pad. They are still comfortable but not fully right for me hence the four stars. For those with narrower sit bone alignment they are thoroughly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressive... If you"re anything like me, you would tend to hesitate just a little before spending this kind of money on bib shorts - but having taken the plunge and bought the HC BIB SHORTS I would definitely recommend them. They are without doubt the most comfortable, well made bib shorts I"ve ever owned - and I have tried many different makes. Comfortable pad, comfortable over the shoulders and grip well round your legs. They also look pretty smart! The longest ride I"ve done wearing them so far is 100 miles, which was really comfortable. I"ll definitely be buying Le Col again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliantly comfortable bibs Le Col"s HC bib shorts match the most premium of cycling brands in both cost and quality. They"re mega bucks but no expense is spared in their quality. The chamois is well padded and the Lycra is a particularly stretchy yet supportive blend. The leg ends are laser cut and the shoulder straps broad. The legs are relatively short, all the better to show off the guns! A further bonus is the free crash repair service which offers to mend crash-damaged shorts even outside of warranty, very welcome when such expensive garments can be ruined in a moment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort meets performance Bought these in preparation for a 760km ride down the east coast of Malaysia during monsoon season - so lots of humidity, sun, and rain. I"m 6"6" and always hesitant before getting pricier garments without trying them on first - especially when you know other brands do a fit which is just right (Rapha large, in my case). These bib shorts fit just as well, if not better. The wide shoulder straps have a nice amount of stretch whilst being super comfortable and the chamois did it"s job supremely well. Well recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HC Bob Tights These bib tights are really top quality, I have wore them twice and was really impressed with how comfy they are and great padding also kept me warm in low temperatures, I purchased size medium and I was a bit worried that they would be too long as I am 5ft 5inch tall, 32inch waist and they fitted me a treat they would fit a taller person possible up to 5ft 8inch as they are stretch material and mine had some room in on leg length, expensive tights I did buy in the sale you get what you pay for 5 stars from me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Supremely comfortable, excellent Customer Service too. I"ve had chance to wear these a few times now and have no complaints at all. They have a supremely comfortable fit and pad, soft fabric with some lovely details (the embroidery in particular) and seem really well made too, with no poorly-sited seams. To quote Ned Flanders, ""It feels like I"m wearing nothing at all"". As an (extremely lucky for me) aside, Yanto Barker himself is a true gent, very helpful with fit and sizing queries - and the Exchange department are efficient and prompt also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dodgy quality Be warned! While the pad is ok and does its job, the quality of the lycra is not. After my first ride in them, a short 40 km ride, the material is already wearing away where my thighs touch the seat. These bibs look nice enough, but are obviously not meant to last. My other older bibs still don"t show any signs of wear in these areas and they"ve done at least 10 to 20 times the distance. Also, I wouldn"t expect bibs like these to have irregular seams and loose threads dangling between my legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bib-Tights As with every thing Le Col these bib-tights feel and look high quality and are extremely comfortable. They are warm enough too but don"t overheat you once you have warmed up. The price tag is high but if you can stretch to it then you"ll be wearing these for years and getting your monies worth. You"ll actually be wanting it to get cold to justify putting them on! The material is extremely stretchy too. I was a little nervous being at the upper end of the Large sizing but it was a perfect fit.
