I've been buying from Aerotech since before they were Aerotech designs. Schnaubelt Shorts used to have product tables at some of the big rides in Ohio, way back in the day (mid 80s, I think).
Excellent stuff, and comparable with other brands' items costing $30 - $40 more.
When you ask if they're comparable to "expensive" pairs, I'm not sure how expensive you mean. I wouldn't put my Aerotek Top Shelf bibs up against my Assos FI.Mille bibs (almost $200 price difference), if that's what you mean. But I'll set them on par with my Performance Ultras, which cost $30 more.
