Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cargo Bib Shorts

I know of Rapha and Eliel, but who else makes cargo bib shorts?

I have a pair of Core bib shorts that I got from Rapha and considering their Core Cargo bibs, but when I rode mine for the first time, the center seam tends to ride up into the bum a bit. Don't really like that.

Looking for some other options out there.

Thanks.

Check the Aero Tech catalog. They've offered bibs with pockets before.

For me I enjoy riding in a loose fitting shirt when on gravel. With cargo bibs that have a some pockets, especially on the back panel, I can carry what I need and still wear what I want as well.

I'll ride a couple of miles to the store with stuff banging against my legs, but that's about it.

Specialized SWAT / PI on the low-mid end. The biggest benefit of these is for holding stuff while you're trying to get out the door.

Castelli Unlimited / Sportful Giara on medium-high end.
