best fit so far, wish they were wool

(Casual/ Recreational) August 27, 2014

I bought a cargo bike to lug my son around on and then started using the same bike to commute to work. I had never bought specialized bike pants before because I am not a super sporty person and don't care for the look. But all that biking was being hard on tender bits and I decided to try out some padding. I wear these as liners (with something else over them) and they are great for preventing chafing, fitting well and not riding up. I carry my weight in the lower hip, upper thigh area, and I'm impressed by how well the grippers stay on my legs and don't ride up, but aren't uncomfortable. I generally wear a women's size 16 and bought the xl. It's too big in the waist for me (I have a big waist/hip differential) but that doesn't impact the sort of riding I do. I do wish the material was more breathable, I find it to get pretty sweaty and clammy on the ride home in 90+ weather. If these were a wool blend I would buy 4 more pairs!

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Not As Breathable As Wool
Uses
  • Commuting
  • Waist: Feels too big
  • Length: Feels true to length

Love these shorts

(Casual/ Recreational) August 8, 2014

It is hard to find a good balance of a comfortable fit short with good padding, these shorts are a good combination. I recently wore these shorts on a 120 mile ride they fit well and gave the comfort I needed for a longer duration ride. The only mild complaint if I had to come up with something, make sure the color of your underwear does not show through (I purchased the pink color).
Overall great short for the casual road bicyclist!

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Nice to have XS size available... BUT!

(Avid Cyclist) March 21, 2014

I wanted to love these shorts and I almost did! I am 5'2, 106 lbs, 33 inch hips, late 50's, and BMI is at low end of range! I feel totally skinny except for one tiny area of my lower belly an inch below my navel. Go figure, this "V" shaped, central-dipping waistband highlights that little jiggling triangle just enough to feel self-conscious. I learned the straight waistband styles are now more flattering for me. I was dissappointed as I loved the padding and rest of the fit for 33" hips. Lots of manufacturers dont even make extra smalls. I returned hassle-free and found a flattering PI straight waistband style! If you have no abdominal fat below your navel, go for them before you age; they are cute!

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Padding
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Love love love!

(Avid Cyclist) July 20, 2011

Absolutely LOVE these shorts! Just got them in the mail today and love them! So comfortable and very light weight, soft material and stretchy, but not too stretchy. I love them! I had some other longer cycling shorts for women and they are horrible compared to these! I would definitely recommend them to everyone! They fit true to size and are perfect for warm weather - summer right now and they are perfect.

Just what I wanted!

(Avid Cyclist) June 28, 2011

There are not many shorts out there that are "short" and this one fits the bill perfectly. The waist band is snug without being tight, the leg grips are not tight but secure and comfortable.

Pros
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Like all except would like a better pad.

Good waistband and leg grippers. Would like to have more of a professional grade pad (I do endurance races of more than 8 hours and this is important).
