has anyone tried this? I was intrigued by the idea that I wouldn't have to remove my jersey to use the restroom mid-ride.
How does their shorts & jerseys fit? I wear a Castelli women's small short and vary between small and xsmall jerseys depending on the brand.
castelli unisex aero race jersey - xs
castelli unisex training jersey xxs
Tried vanderkitten and should have bought an xs instead of small jersey. :-(
I have a pr of the bibs. They do run a little bit large, but I found them comfortable all the same.
The halter is very comfortable, and works exactly as it should for bathroom breaks, etc. Easy on and off.
I was afraid the halter would be uncomfortable on my neck and pull down, but I hardly noticed it was there.
I was fit and wear-testing the 2017, which have a little pocket in the back of the shorts, which was convenient and easy to access.
The pad itself and placement on the short were also spot on. I always use chamois cream, but didn't have to use any more or less than usual.
Shorts fabric, including the sublimated print panel are smooth and supportive but not too thick, and the seam placement and non-elastic grip panel don't give you sausage legs or leave seamlines on your legs.
All in all, I'd give the shorts a 10 out of 10!
OH! The halter is a simply, stretchy strap attached to top of the bib which slips over your head and rests on your neck. The top of the bibs and strap placement on chest is exactly right, no interference with boobage. The ladies of Shebeest are geniuses. SSP, not sure what day you were there, but all the employees of Canari and Shebeest, scruffy appearances not withstanding, are very nice people and pretty fun besides. Canari which bought SB about a year ago, is family. Not sure who the scruffy fellow was.
