I have been buying Castelli bibs since they fit me well and I afraid to buy other brands that don't fit and have to send them back. Shops close to me don't sell any other brand beyond Castelli. :noidea:

No need to quote above

Is there a reason you don't want to continue to buy Castelli bibs?

Wild guess.. Sportful?

It's the same company as Castelli, although different, it should be pretty close in most circumstances.

I would like to see what else there is out there but it would be online since the closest shop to sell other brands is more then 50 miles away. The Castelli I bought from the shop and have about 3 years on them. I have tried Sugio and specialized in the past but the don't fit the same. Would have gone with a weight weenie kit but the colors don't have any red in them.

I've gone from Sportful, had Castelli, and found both are quite close in fit.

Due, no doubt, to the above ;)

In Varmarc now. Feel a little different, but medium still (which sounds like the concern, given you're ordering online)

Sportful runs a little bit bigger than Castelli, but still close.

I had Craft sportswear before moving more and more to Castelli. It fit me fine too, but everything does. Apparently I have a very average cyclist build. Anyway Castelli gear looks nicer, particularly in the last 1-2 years.

I've got one set of Voler stuff from a few years ago that seems to fit like my Castelli stuff. The pad is completely different though, but I know Voler has several different pads to choose from.
