Combining several different thicknesses of mesh and Lycra, the Sportful Total Comfort are fantastic at wicking away sweat from the skin and letting in some very welcome cooling air.
The wide weave of the Lycra does allow leg hair to pass through, though, so those who favour shaving their legs only to ?the knee level will need to go ?higher if they want to avoid the dreaded ‘hairy shorts’ look.
The enormous pad is broad, thick and comfortable for long hours in the saddle. In fact, the only area where these bibs fall short of their Total Comfort moniker is in the straps, where the mesh is a little too coarse. Because of this, they ?are best worn over a fine base ?layer.
