Renata says: "I would call this the best bang-for-your-buck short!? I have many Attack Shorts from many different seasons, and they have not disappointed me. Sure, they change a little here and there, but this no frills, whistles or bells short remains one of the best fitting, most comfortable shorts I own. I love the fabric because it is slightly compressive without being excessively so, yet stretchy enough to conform to my shape with a natural-rise waist, not low cut. I also love the chamois because it is not overly bulky, yet protective, and the leg bands and dot-grippers are not too tight."

3.8 stars 3.8 for Attack Short by Pearl Izumi (4 reviews)

2.0 stars 2.0

Used to love pearl Izumi, but not these

(Avid Cyclist) September 28, 2014

After 25 years of being a PEarl Izumi only girl, I have not been happy with the attack shorts. The chamois is really narrow through the middle and also bulky. Very uncomfortable for me-hot spots and the feeling that I can't take another pedal stroke. Not good. I've switched over to the Terry Bella short and that took care of the problem. My old pearls fit fine, it was just this new pair. Wish they would go back to the old chamois.

Pros
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Chafes
Uses
  • Mountain Biking
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Great fit

(Casual/ Recreational) August 3, 2012

I love the fit of these - the legs are a bit longer than average and don't have a tight elastic band at the bottom - very nice fit for those with heavier thighs. My only reservation is they seem to be snagging and wearing poorly in a couple of sections and I've only had them a short time. Still, I do like them.

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