bibs in or bibs out?

my father in law gave me a pair of bibs, he bought em and they didnt fit him so here they are...

anyway, do you wear the bibs outside of your shirt, or inside? the 2 times I wore them, I went inside and it felt a little strange, but I'm thinking it will look more strange outside of the shirt.

whats the proper use? (or is it just a matter of preference?)

I'm not sure if there is a proper way. I wear bibs in cold weather only so they go somewhere between layers, but never on top, it gets too tight, usually on top of the base layer.

Inside- otherwise the access to my jersey pockets is limited, not to mention how strange it would feel to have all my spare goods and such tucked under my straps.

Bibs go underneath your jersey. Most pro riders wear bibs; you can look at some race photos and none have bibs on the outside.

Bibs go like Chad stated underneath the jersey. I actually like bibs because when I have my shirt ride up in cold weather I still have my back covered by the bibs! It is personal preference of course.

Underneath the jersey.
What brand/style did you get?

Under the jersey or whatever outer shirt you're wearing. If you also put on a base layer like a snug Under Armour-type shirt, put the bib over that.

Basically, no more than one layer between your skin and the bibs, and never on the outside.

Us males can usually manage a #1 bathroom stop without taking them off, too. (tmi..)
