Louis Garneau Optimum Bib Shorts (Black) (L)
After the second wash the chamois started to separate from the shorts. Five miles into my ride, the chamois started chafing and what is normally an easy 20 mile ride, became a very uncomfortable ride. I own three Performace Elite bibs shorts, and the only reason I ordered the LG is because the Performance Elites are out of stock in my size. I am not happy with the quality of the chamois in the LG, I should have saved my money and waited for the Performance Elites to be in stock.

Measurement Guide:

  1. Chest- Take measurement of the circumference around the fullest part of the chest while arms are relaxed at sides
  2. Waist- Measure the circumference of the waist at the natural crease of the waist while keeping tape measure a bit loose (finding natural waist crease can be easily found by bending over to one side)
  3. Hips- Standing with feet together, measure the circumference around the fullest part of the hips at the top of the legs
  4. Inseam- Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg
  5. Body Length- Run a tape measure from the top pf the shoulder, across the chest/belly, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point

Measurement Notes:

  • Keep tape measure level and not too tight
  • For most accurate results, take measurements over underwear or close fitting apparel
  • Take measurements twice with a flexible tape measure to ensure accuracy
