I already owned a pair of these and bought a second pair but ended up returning them in favor of a second pair of Pear Izumi Ultrastar Cycling
Shorts. Initially, I loved my Canari Vortex shorts - fit well, comfy but on longer rides they weren't cutting it. Occasionally, I put them in the dryer and think that you would NOT want to do that as I believe it may broken down the gel, whereas the padded shorts have survived the dryer.

Love the get pad...did not love the way my legs looked in these shorts. The fit was comfortable, but my inner thighs bulged unattractively! between the leg elastic and gel pad.... Maybe too big, but then the rise would be short.

I like the shorts, but based on other reviews I purchased a large. They fit comfortably in the waist, but the elastic in the legs / thigh are too loose. I should have ordered a Medium. Even though they are a little big, they were comfortable and the padding did the job.

I wear a 2-4 in pants and the smalls in these fit perfectly. I bought these in the 'tights' version and liked those so much I bought the shorts as well. the padding was comfortable on a 35 mile ride, looking forward to wearing these on longer rides later in the season. They seem to be very well made and should last a long time.

Just as described ! These shorts are very comfortable , they come out of the wash ,dry quickly and look as good as new.The gel is very dense and gives a nice cushion between you and the saddle . Love these shorts ,I bought a second pair .
