"As with most Italian brands you need to go a size up. But two sizes come on.
I'm a UK medium but large Jersey and Bib shorts where too small.
Quality product just hope extra large fits."

"Purchased after looking at all the similar brands, great reviews. Have worn this with a long sleeved and short sleeved Craft base layer. At first it feels your under dressed but after ten minutes warm up it's really comfortable.
Great breathability and wind proof, have not been caught in the rain yet though. I do carry a rain cape just in case.
I'm a fan of Castelli, so sizing is always an issue, I'm a UK medium but Large fits nicely, just right.
Will use this Autumn, Winter and Spring time.
Two cons,
expensive , but get what you pay for I suppose.
When the back pockets are full the bib saver catches the saddle when you stand up."

"I've worn other leading brand base layers but this is the best on the bike. I'm a medium and fit it tight, but not restrictive or uncomfortable.
I wore on a fifty miler under a good breathable Castelli, it kept me warm and was dry when I took it off.
First time if bought Craft, will buy again.

"Have only used these twice, second time on a 50 mile ride. Really pleased with them and would recommend .
I'm six feet tall and have a 31 inch inside leg, the large are just right not too tight, unlike the medium. There are long so I have to turn down the top 2/3 inches, but the gripper keeps them in place. Didn't experience any gathering behind the knee. Comfortable withe soft lining. Haven't tested in rain yet but other reviews have and that's why I purchased them.

Heavyweight, neoprene, overshoe for deep Winter use. Tough TPU skin means rain won’t penetrate and thick neoprene gives the best level of insulation against the cold.

"The curved fingers are really good on the bars and the very warm.I wouldn't wear for longer than a two hour ride ,due to the material not letting the skin breath. Hands get very wet and the gloves need turning inside out to dry.
I would recommend for shorter rides as they are warm.

What's the difference between the Velocissimo and the Velocissimo Due bibshorts?
