The Cargo Bibshort (Men's)


*This product's fit has been relaxed in the hips as of August 2021 to better match the fit on all other RW Bibs. Please note that due to the pockets, the fit will still be slightly tighter than the non-cargo bibs. If you're close to the upper limit for a particular size, consider going up to the next size. Please refer to the sizing chart before purchasing. If unsure about size, please email :*

The Cargo Bibshort (Men's) is designed to help you ride further than ever before. 4 large pockets allow you to store large quantities of nutrition, inner tubes, tool kits, spare clothing and more. These pockets are made from a tough & stretchy nylon fabric that is snag-resistant.

    Fit like a glove

    I used the size guide to find my size. Sometimes this doesn't work out too well. However, in this case I am happy to report it was spot on. They were comfy the moment I put them on and felt great on the bike. Even after a few hours of riding.
    I love all the pockets in them too. Positioned just right and easy to get access while on the bike. Never again will I be wanting that additional pocket to stuff something into.

    Awesome chamois!

    Super comfortable bib for long ride. Chamois design works super well, new sizing on hip fits really nicely.

    Great shorts!!

    Fresh off a 400 mile week long gravel ride, I can say without fear these shorts just WORK! I packed two pairs of bibs: the RW’s and a Swiss brand. And day after day I washed the RW shorts in the sink and air dried so they could be ready the next day. These were my first choice! I LOVE the fit, the chamois and the generous pockets! Not to mention, so many people asked about these awesome looking bibs....

    If you want to look good and ride all day, buy these shorts.

    Re-sized Cargo Bibshorts are 👍

    So, I wrote a previous review of the RedWhite Cargo Bibshorts in which I registered my disappointment in the fit, based on my excellent prior experience with the RedWhite bibs fit and performance. Turns out, last month they modified the fit, and all is right with the world again! Yuva recommended I get a Large in the new cut (I had gotten a size larger with the first version, which were way too tight across the hips), and they fit just as well as my standard Long Distance Bibshorts, which I use in size Large as well. In the interim, I had bought some Cargo Bibs from another brand, and while nice, with an Elastic Interface chamois, I found myself missing the fit and feel of the RedWhites that had become my go-tos over the last 3-4 years. Really pleased with the resized RedWhite Cargo Bibshorts and with the customer service.

    A great pair of bibs

    This is my third pair of Red Whites and am trying out the cargo bibs. Same outstanding comfort as the standard Red White bibs but with the practicality of the pockets. The back pocket especially holds my tool pouch securely with the sag and swing if i had kept it in my jersey pocket. The side pockets are great for the bars and gels. So much easier to get at. Even will filled pockets it does affect my pedaling.

    Great chamois and cargo design.

    I am 6’5”, 230 lbs. Yuva recommended a 3X for the cargo shorts and mentioned that I was on the limit of the sizing. I have put just under 200 miles on the shorts. I purchased these bibs based on their reputation for long distance comfort. Due to my weight I need a firm chamois. When I first put the shorts on they were snug. Fabric felt a little “heavier” than my more expensive 7Mesh or Endura bib shorts. But after a few miles they were very comfortable and do not shift during riding. Chamois is great. Pockets are well designed. And the fit only got better after a couple of bucket soak/hand washings. These shorts are excellent. Especially for the price. Significantly less $ than the above mentioned bib shorts. The only minor negative would be in very hot weather these shorts feel a little warmer. But it’s not a deal breaker.

    Quality, plus.

    The cargo bib is snug, Next purchase will be a size up. I am 75 years old, with 3800 miles completed this season, and I am happy with this bib after hours of riding. The chamois is comfortable, and after many washings, no stretch or shrinkage was noted. I am very pleased 😀 will surely share my views with fellow club members, which totals about 1300.

    Cargo Bibshorts in stock after August 11, 2021 will be more flexible in the hips. You can stick with the same size and get a more comfortable fit. No need to size up :). All old stock (tighters ones) has been removed from stock in preparation for the next batch (more flexible in the hips and legs).
