How Do I Determine My Size?

We recommend a general body measurement guide to determine your size in Ibex clothing. This sizing chart is not garment specific, but in fact a body measurement chart. Here are some helpful hints when measuring:

Bust/Chest: relax arms at sides, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, measure the fullest part of your bust/chest
Waist: keeping the measuring tape comfortably loose, measure around your natural waistline
Hips: standing with heels together, keep the tape straight and parallel to the floor, measure around the fullest part of hips
Sleeve Length: a 3-point measurement, standing with arms relaxed and slightly bent at sides, measure from the base of the neck to the shoulder and then from the shoulder to the wrist bone, add together measurements
Form-fit: garment designed to fit snug to the body throughout
Semi-fit: garment will be contoured to the body
Regular-fit: garment will not be slim, but also not oversized
Relaxed-fit: garment drapes loosely on body

Three-season champ!
Just wore 'em in fall rainstorm here in wet season - they got wet but I didn't get cold. Had to wear 'em for about an hour after sweaty hill-climbing rainstorm ride and I stayed comfortable. Several bike buds have 'em too and all of us are impressed. Not too much or too little across a wide range of temps.

one pair of shorts ?
i received the el fito 3/4 bib back in september when the weather here was still a little warm and it's now december so things have cooled down considerably . these knickers have become my # 1 selection . the weight of the fabric is just right . the knee panel is great . no bunching or puckering where the two different fabrics meet . top quality materials and construction . they fit me ( 5'7" , 14

Just the ticket
Second year of wearing this bib, and I hope it lasts forever. Any ride from 60F down into the 30Fs and you want to be wearing these ... the wool keeps you feeling warm and the windblock panels keep the wind out. Most of my rides are 25-35 miles, road; I'm in Virginia so winter is short, but these are the only knickers I need from September into December. Mine have an earlier pad design, without ge

These are not just for the guys.....
I have owned the El Fito's 3/4 for several years in the gal version, but decided to try these this year for the slimmer fit and the fact that I like the way bibs fit. I was NOT disappointed. These are my go to knickers now.

Great for chilly rises, but not too warm when the temps rise. Fit was perfect (6'2", 175 lbs, size L.) Quickly became my favorite cycling apparel because it feels great in a wide range of temps and it keeps me warm in the rain/snow. Does not bunch at knees like knee warmers.

Very nice. Love them
Really nice. Breathes and can be ridden in wide range of temperatures. The pad is a little thick and bulky but the new model looks like it is smoother.No itching. Never stinks!

Like your favorite blanket
Imagine your favorite blanket. You know, the one you reach for on a chilly morning while you are enjoying your coffee. Now imagine you are on your bike and that blanket snugly wrapped around your legs and hips. Yeah, these bibs are like that.

I use 'em everyday in the winter for commuting and training. For just a little more dough over what you will spend for another brand you can get these.

Best cycling pants ever
I ride every day, bicycle being my primary transportation. Three to four times a week, I take long (50+ miles) rides and have been unhappy with other riding pants after the first couple of hours. These, however, are perfect. Truly. No discomfort, no bunching, no shifting, no numb or sore spots. For the first time in years, the length of my rides is dictated exclusively by my legs and lungs. Thanks

Great shorts
These just might be the perfect bibs to wear for spring/fall riding. I have only had them a week, and they are already my favorite shorts. The chamois fits me perfectly...not too thick, doesn't ride up too high, and it flexes without chafing. Much better than any other shorts I've tried. The wool is a perfect weight, not too warm at 65 degrees, and I'll probably wear these down to 30 before add
