    What other brands fit like Voler?

    Tried other brands but can't seem to get the same fit as Voler bibs... wondering if anyone has any suggestions for other brands?

    I 've bought Voler. Their products have been comfortable.. Was not too happy with their endurance, seems their products became a little thread bare earlier than I liked. Maybe their fit was a little too loose... A little saggy where you don't want saggy.. My club kit is exclusively Giordana . For comfort and endurance I give Giordana an A+.

    Interesting, I find the Voler products don't last long either. One summer and they become "indoor use only".

    How do you find the fit between Voler and Giordana?

    For bibs, I've tried PI, Craft, Voler, Hot Shoppe, Descente, Cannondale; it's unreal the fitting differences between them.

    My club always orders Giordana for our members. I find Voler a little less supportive fit... I don't like a baggy crotch when I ride..... Giordana, the amount of support where you need it is about right.. Maybe the chamois on the Giordana shorts might be a bit bigger and thicker, should you not like that.. I also have PI, Descente, and Cannondale.. Cannondale runs a bit small. I also find PI and Descente to have a very comfortable fit..

    Craft runs a bit small too, and I didn't like the feel of the lycra.

    Thanks, I'll give Giordana a try.

    Wear and fit are the two bigger factors.. You get in a shop, I'd inspect the chamois and confirm it's in the style you like.. The comfort of bike shorts is mostly in the chamois.. Be sure it's to your liking. I still wear my Voler some.. Because the thread bare parts of my Voler shorts are on the side panel.. Since it's on the side panels, who cares if you can see a little skin. .

    I've found that Voler and Sugoi have a very similar fit. However, I only have one pair of each brand, so take it for what its worth.
