Coleman Valley Bib Short
Sewn here in North Carolina with high power compression fabric that provides compression, abrasion resistance, and wicking performance. Add moderate SPF protection, lightweight mesh straps and back help keep you cool, and a soft secure gripper hem, and you have your go-to cycling bib.
More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

Overall, I absolutely love these bibs! The chamois is the perfect amount of cushion, the length is great (could even go a bit shorter for my liking) and they don't compress your legs too much. The only thing I would change is the seams where the spandex short meets the mesh overall. This part of the bib can get a bit itchy, but after I've been on the bike awhile, I get used to it. Last thing, I would love to see a sleek mesh pocket on one of the legs.
My go-to bibs for all day comfort on mixed terrain. Sleek branding and slightly shorter inseam are added benefits.
At this point, I have several hours into wearing these bibs and they have been great! Absolutely love the chamois too. It has just the right amount of firmness and I like the size of it being a bit longer in front. I look forward to seeing how they wear with more use. Plus, love, love, love that they are made in NC!!!!
These are the best bibs I've ever tried, bar none.
I have (and still use) the first version of these (size L) and they are regularly in the mix. I was replacing a different brand's bib and so ordered what I expected to be identical (size L) to the ones I owned. Turns out they run about an inch+ shorter in length on my thigh. (Current hem ends about where the old hem starts.) Otherwise great, but just too short at mid-thigh while riding.
