Best Bibs For Potty Breaks
The take-away here: No one has crafted the Holy Grail when it comes to making women’s bibshorts that are simple to get off when nature calls. But for now anyway, give the nod to the Pearl iZumi Women’s Pro In-R-Cool, which drew praise from two of our four testers.
Kate: Pearl iZumi Women’s Pro In-R-Cool — These bibs were easier to drop trou in than traditional bib shorts. The difference isn’t significant enough to don them for warm weather rides; however, with the multiple layers of a cold weather ride, the drop-tail feature instantly becomes much more valuable and even worth the sacrifice in comfort.
Liz: Pearl iZumi Women’s Pro In-R-Cool“>Pearl iZumi Women’s Pro In-R-Cool — The clasp in the back is relatively easy to use and this short is more comfortable than others with similar designs.
Lisa: Assos T.Lady_S5 — The deciding factor was that the hooking mechanism was on the front of the bib, making it easy to re-attach without any outside assistance. It wasn’t perfect but made it possible to use the restroom while not taking off my jersey.
Elizabeth: Castelli Palmares Due Bibshort — This design definitely won the potty test for me. They’re the fastest on and off.
