Recently wore these during an 8 day 960km cycling tour - not every day as I own several Wyn bibs and yes, I washed them between uses. They were so comfy and the side pockets are a brilliant idea for easily grabbing phone, food or gels. I could even put my hands inside the pockets - not that I recommend putting your hands in your pockets while cycling. Buy yourself some. Your butt and shoulders will thank you for it.
