If your body measurement is between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurement for chest, waist, and hips result in different suggested sizes, order the size that corresponds to your bust measurement for tops and hip measurement for bottoms.
The most important investment a cyclist can make is buying a great set of bibs. One of our goals was to design bibs so comfortable that you won't think about them at all while you're putting in miles on the bike. The Staple 3.0 bibs are all black, and will look and feel great with whatever jersey you decide to ride in that day.
Check out our Bib Short Guarantee and see for yourself how confident we are that you'll love our bibs.

Note: Our staple bibs are not meant to be super stretchy. When in doubt, size up.
DL makes hands down the best bibs. They can be tough to justify but the cost is worth every penny in my mind.
The fit is perfect; no bunches, rolls, or wrinkles. I prefer bibs without the silicone gripper, as it's it feels like the cuff disappears, and makes for a smooth, aero transition between leg and short.
The chamois is like nothing else. It's dense, firm, and thin...yet elegantly flexible, pliable, and breathable. It doesn't squish or bunch, and it doesn't hold moisture. It's almost impossible to describe; you have to feel lit for yourself. How a bibshort can be so light and comfortable and still maintain the level of support is unrivaled. I have worn some pretty trash shorts in my time, and every time I pull the DL's up, I'm amazed at how they disappear.
They not only fit me great, they help my bike fit me great. Riding is an endless pleasure with DL. The only thing that can slow me down is my own lack of fitness!
Great bibs replaced my old 2.0 bibs they seem better and pretty durable should last a long time.
Best bibs I have used. First pair were too tight, but return for a larger size was fast and easy.
These are by far the best bibs that I've ever owned. From the quality of materials and construction to the fit, they leave nothing to be desired. As Minnesotans say, "they're spendy", but worth every penny.
Love the bids!
Ultra comfortable (especially in the tender regions, no moose knuckle with these!) Love 'em!
These bibs are super comfortable! Great support, great breathability. I love them
Great fit and comfortable, just bought a second pair.
I have these bibs for some time, and I’ve really put them through the ringer. Donkey Label really knocks it out of the park with all their products, but especially with their bib shorts. As others have mentioned, these things melt away when you put them on. I have never worn any other product that are as comfortable as DL’s bibs. I really enjoy that there isn’t a gemmed material along the cuff of the shorts to have a place for stitching to ware and become an issue (I’m looking at you rapha). The labeling on the back of the shorts gives your friends something to stare at besides your butt, and is reflective, so win-win! Really can’t say enough about these shorts they are killer. They are my go-to.
Awesome customer service. Great product definitely recommend.
I must say the chamois is amazing. Trainer rides seem to be the toughest test for any of my bibs. First ride was 2.5 hours on the trainer. Next ride was 3 hours. The chamois did not cause an irritation and I could have gone longer. The only thing I did not like was the shorts did ride up on the legs. It didn't cause a problem but they just settled in shorter than I normally like it. I am so happy with the rest of the fit and chamois that I will keep these as my preferred for longer rides.
I did not notice the problem with, "not working well in the heat," as someone else noted. I found them to wick away sweat and did not feel heavy after I removed them like some of my other bibs do.

Honestly, it's incredible to have a bib short that conforms and disappears on your body. You simple put these on and go ride. Right, you go through all the motions and get the rest of your kit on. I enjoy the competitors, but there's something special about these shorts that don't grab, chaff, snag, or cause skin discomfort.
I also have an original pair of the Staple 1.0, which I also love. When you need a short for a full day in the saddle, look not farther. Thank you Donkey Label for providing us with a bib short that answers when the ride calls.
Best bib I’ve ever had.
The bibs were a big disappointment, especially at the price point.! The biggest complaint is that the legs appear unfinished, rough cut and not even, and they lack any elastic or leg gripping material at the bottom causing them to ride up while riding. The material is not made for hot weather as it does not breath. The one good thing about them is the chamois. Good quality and comfortable for hours in the saddle.
Best bibs ever!
Hands down the best bibs I have ever owned and my go to bibs, especially for long rids. Great fit (forgiving yet form fitting), great breathability, and functionality. Race, ride, train, these bibs do it all.
These bibs are deliciously comfortable. Not too tight, not loose, just right. And to top it off my wife gave me a naughty look - - I need to buy another pair :)
