To keep things succinct, this overview will only cover the cargo specific features of this bibshort. This bib short contains a total of 4 large pockets. This article will cover each one.
Please note that just like The BIB (Men's), the male version of this Cargo Bib Short is available in Regular and 2" Inseam Shorter versions.
It's all about the Cargo Pockets
A Cargo Bib Short is all about the pockets.
This Cargo Bib Short uses a stretchy & tough mesh fabric. It's made of nylon and is snag resistant. This bibshort has 4 large, useful pockets. They fit a lot of things. 3 of them are easily accessible.
- 2 Thigh Pockets (easy access)
- 1 Low Back Pocket (easy access)
- 1 High Back Pocket (difficult access)
Large Thigh Pockets (on both sides)
We begin with the Thigh Pockets. These pockets were designed to :
- Expand generously to fit plenty of bars, gels & a large phone
- Stretches and maintains tension to keep items secure (no annoying movement of your bars, phone, keys etc when pedalling)
- Lie flat when not used
The model on the right (above) is wearing a size S women's Cargo Bib Short, and she has enough space in her pockets for a large phone and a gel or two. The model on the left (above) is wearing a size L men's Cargo Bib Short and easily carries 3 large granola bars.
Thigh Cargo pockets are a nuisance if they flap about with every pedal stroke when not filled. RedWhite's Cargo Bib Shorts use a stretchy nylon fabric that lies flat when not in use. We achieved this by tailoring the pockets to always maintain tension when worn. They stretch across your thigh and remain in place like a second skin until filled.
Low Back Pocket
This Cargo Bib Short has 2 back pockets.
The first one is a Low Back Pocket. This pocket sits below your jersey, making it easy to access on the go. Reaching back and pulling something out is actually easier than your jersey pockets.
It is a single, high volume pocket. You can throw a lot of random stuff in. In the photo above, the model put a large banana and an inner tube and had a lot more room to spare.
Just like the Thigh Pockets, this lower back pocket is tailored with some tension in. It stays flat when not used and expands generously when needed.
High Back Pocket
This Cargo Bib Short is finished with a High Back Pocket.
Keeping with the large size theme, this pocket is generous in size. It sits underneath your jersey and is more difficult to access.
The purpose of this pocket is for you to store items you'd rarely use. Things like :
- Multi-tool kit
- Inner tubes
Similar to the other pockets, this stays flat when not in use and has tension that keeps everything secure.
