Bibs with pockets?

I'm looking for some new bibs, and I remember trying one a while back that I should have got but didn't for some reason. It had a small pocket on each leg - perfect size for a cell phone, set of keys, whatever.

I'd like to get a pair like that so i could wear the cheap tops i can find at Wally World, Target, etc. which are just as good (to me, at least) as jerseys, but they never have a back pocket. I can spend $12 on those or $35+ in an LBS or online, on essentially the same thing, except one has a back pocket.

So, can anyone point me towards bibs with leg pockets? Thanks!

My first thought was get some Carharts, but after reading I see your looking for those fancy bibs.....

its not so difficult to sew one on. Ive never seen bibs w/pockets before.

do you currently use a saddle bag to carry tools and an extra tube?? You can always get a slightly larger one. I upgraded to a medium topeak aero wedge. plenty large enough without being overly bulky, cheap too.

I think I have the same saddle bag, and it does carry all that I need to. I just like having the phone on my person for some reason. I can hear it ring more easily, for one thing. I don't use it while riding (no texting and riding, no calling and riding). I pull over, pull out the phone, and check my progress or average speed or whatever on the phone. And I need another pair of bibs anyways. I only have one, and find myself having to at least rinse them out and dry them after every ride.

I like the topeak very much. Maybe you need something like this instead. Or perhaps just a pocket on your bibs would work.

The only pocket I've seen on bibs has been on the back and just above the waist line. Those were Giordana.

I went this route Rokform Smartphone Bike Mounts for my phone especially since I use it for tracking my rides. For me, the last place I want my phone is in my pocket when I am drenched in sweat, my keys go in my Topeak bag.

I really like this mount, and I've looked at several. Perhaps that's the better solution. Thanks!

Specialized "Mountain bibs" have pockets in the back.
