solid for the price paid

I'm still fairly new, my other pairs of bibs/shorts are Castelli Podium Bormio and Giordana Silverline.
first, as mentioned, this is the kiss3 chamois, not the AC. it is a thin chamois, not as good as the one found on the Castelli Bormio.
next, there's a seam on the inner thigh, but hasn't caused a problem for me - i know some don't like bibs w/ seams on the inner thigh.
this is my first pair with leg grippers, and it seems that i prefer them to "cuffs". also, the shorts only came to my mid-thigh (which i like).
I'm 6' and 225 lbs, i ordered the XL. it fits, but if i were an inch taller, the straps (which are way wider than the Podium Bormio's) would be difficult to pull on.
the fit is great, overall. the only issue is the chamois being pretty thin (the stitching on the inside isn't the smoothest either, but not bad).
so, 4 stars because I snagged 'em off BonkTown for $55, they fit great, very comfortable, thin fabric, which will be great on shorter rides.
