Review of Voler Bibs for Tall Skinny Guys(3 posts)

Review of Voler Bibs for Tall Skinny GuysMr Nick
Nov 7, 2003 4:47 PM
I took a couple guys advice who were my similar build (6'2" - 165lbs. - 33" wasit) and tried the large Voler bibs. Well I got them today and they did not fit at all. The torso portion was a little short, but would have been OK if the legs hadn't been way too big. I guess you can't have chicken legs like I do and wear a large. Oh well they are already shipping me new shorts so no harm, but I thought I would let any other tall skinny guys know that a large might not work.

Haven't got bibs, but I've got one pair of volers in large and another in medium and they both work fine. I'm exactly the height, weight and waist size you describe. Gotta love lycra.
With your height and waist size...biknben

I saw your original post but didn't reply because I'm a little shorter than you. I'm 6'0" with a 32"-33" waist. The medium Voler bibs fit me well in the waste and legs but I do notice they tend to be tight in the crotch. The mediums are meant for shorter, skinnier guys. At 6'2", these shorts may fit your waist but not your height.

A guy with your dimensions may find shorts to be more comfortable than bibs.
