Go back to the old styling, Pearl Izumi

These shorts are disappointing. They are a redesign from the style of years past, which had a simple, thin waistband and simple leg grippers. The old style was much more streamlined and comfortable. The lower sewn-on leg sections of the new style are uncomfortably tight and don't permit length adjustment by hiking them up a bit like one could do with the the old style. The worst change with these cycling shorts is the material. It is much thinner than what was used with the older style and even new, is somewhat see-through. Get with the program PI; ladies do not like see through cycling shorts!
I have chosen the Attack short for over 7 years now because of the 3D Chamois, which I find great for long touring days. Thankfully, the chamois didn't change too much. I bought these shorts on sale, so I will probably keep them, even though I don't love them. Had I paid full price, they would be returned, for sure.
