Kitsbow has launched an updated version of their popular long-ride bib shorts. The Coleman Valley Pocket Bib Shorts now feature — you guessed it — pockets. The pockets in question are located on the thigh and made of mesh so that moisture from your exertion doesn’t condense on your phone as you grind up your local hill.
“Nice shorts.” “Thanks, they have pockets.”
The stretchy pockets are big enough to accommodate bars, phones, headphones, or any other small item you might want to snag on the go. The bib shorts also include the features found on the original Coleman Valley Bib Shorts — like comfy mesh straps and back and a gripper hem.
Here’s the full list of specs, per Kitsbow’s product page:
- Industry-leading Elastic Interface 3D formed pad for all-day in-the-saddle comfort. Pad incorporates a special ultra-high density perineal insert (an innovative structure featuring a multidirectional curvature that delivers perfect fit and great stability, and proper ischiatic support in the saddle) and a special “encased” shaping in the top part of the chamois which allows for improved fit and greater privacy
- Highly breathable and soft mesh upper and straps are fully edged and finished for maximal comfort, in fact, you won’t even notice them
- Two convenient thigh mesh pockets
- Lightweight nylon compression fabric provides exceptional compression, wicking, durability, and breathability
- 30% spandex provides high power compression to support leg muscles
- UPF 50 sun protection
- The hem elastic has a custom silicone gripper that keeps the hem or warmers in place
- Sewn by artisan Makers, one at a time, in Old Fort, NC
Our favorite part about the Kitsbow Coleman Valley Bib Shorts is that they are made to order in North Carolina. Using this model, Kitsbow minimizes waste by only producing what they need to fill orders. Kitsbow Coleman Valley Bib Shorts come in six sizes and cost $249.
