at last, no chafing

Reviewed by Sierra Skier from California on Tuesday, April 16, 2013
I am on the eternal quest for a pair of shorts that fit my chunky (well padded) thighs and don't chafe at the top of my leg. Yes, the leg elastic is tight enough to make me conscious of a small bulge of "spare skin" below it, but it holds the padding down and stops it from going into the crease of my crotch and chafing. Both pairs of Pearl Izumi's chafe because of so much padding on the sides, and these are much better. There is plenty of gel under my butt, and it didn't feel warm despite a long sweaty ride. I did size down to a large and that was great. I am 5"8 170lbs with big butt and thighs. I actually came back here to buy a 2nd pair.
