    First I had to pay and extra 55€. Second the the cycling shorts were not the colour I ordered.. I could not return them because I needed them for a race the following weekend.
    The short itself is OK but the banana moves when cycling and is not ergonomic, or at least for my shape.

    I will think long and hard before re-ordering from this iste.

    I was pleased to find Pearl Izumi shorts at this price point. I have a pair of these shorts from Spring 2012 with a 6 inch inseam and was looking to add another pair to my collection to vary my tan lines over the summer to avoid the "cyclists" tan. I was horribly disappointed when I tried these on. The construction of the shorts is a lot like the other PI shorts from the last several seasons. The fabric was light and I was super excited about them until I tried to pull the legs further up onto my thighs. I'm just shy of 6 feet and have large thighs--but the fact that these shorts are built with a self-restraining fabric cuff rather than PI's usual leg grippers, means that there is literally NO GIVE in the leg opening. The rest of the shorts (or as much as I could fit on my body) fit perfectly.

    Easy no brainer purchase. Stay dry and cool and protect the bum!

    Normally I love Pearl Izumi clothing but these were a disappointment. The fabric was thinner than any cycling shorts I've owned and they run very small.

    These fit tighter than all my other Pearls and they are see through. The cut is flattering, but see through is not ok. If you want to wear as a chamois layer under shorts, the chamois is nice and padded.

    Very see-through and not much for support.

    I've only worn them once so far, so I'll have to come back and revise this if repeated wearing changes my perception.

    I'm surprised by the material--it seems awfully thin and less durable than all my other shorts, which are part of a local racing team kit. My fear is that my bum crack will show through the material, if not now, then in not too long after several wearings. (I'll have to get my husband to give me a pre-ride bum check).

    I'm not sure I like the non-elastic waist and leg bands. The sides and back of the v-waist slid down my waist to just above my hips while riding. It wasn't physically uncomfortable, but if my jersey had been a race cut one (tighter fitting, a little shorter), I would have felt uncomfortable about possibly flashing some skin.

    Like the material, the chamois is on the thin side. But I was comfortable on my 40-mile ride, so I think it was fine. I did like it's "footprint"--a little more streamlined.

    So I'm a little disappointed, but won't give up on Pearl Izumi yet.

    I tried these on, and I like the lower waist, and the smooth waistband. Very light fabric, will have to see how it holds up to friction

    I bought these for my wife and she is very picky about her cycling shorts. She's worn them a couple times and said they are very comfortable. Good chamois.

    I think these riding shorts could be great but.... I ordered them in a Medium and definitely need a small.... this makes the padding too big and the riding shorts not very secure type fit....I like the fabric... I like the cut of the legs... the length.... the cut of the waist.... all of it but these need to go back. I ordered a Medium... my waist is 29 inches and my hips are 35, my thighs are not equal at the "chubby" part but 19-20 inches. I weigh 121 pounds and am 5'3 inches tall. I hope this helps someone.
