No Room Inside these ShortsVerified Buyer Reviewed by Tecnica from East Coast on Sunday, October 14, 2018The "chamois " is in the way, it is so puffed up. Even XL is too tight across the lower hip, making it a restriction to pedaling.Pearl Izumi makes Tri shorts and Select Ltd shorts with low padding and hopefully will design more. Bring back a real chamois.

Great pad super tight legsReviewed by VETMANSHU from Santa Cruz on Tuesday, August 21, 2018For a top-notch pair of shorts they're worth the money if you have really skinny thighs. They are very well made and the pad is excellent but the thighs are incredibly tight.
I've owned these for over a year and have worn them many times. I have a 34" waist and 23" thighs at their thickest. The pad is excellent for longer rides (>50+ miles), and large fits my waist perfectly but the thighs are way too tight. I would love to wear these on longer rides but when I go beyond 20 miles I feel fatigued from the constriction.
I've tried to manually stretch out the thigh material and its helped some but not enough.
Good shorts but cuff at lower thigh is loose.Reviewed by MATT from Alabama on Monday, August 20, 2018If you have big ham legs, the leg cuff will be good for you. If, however, you have regular to thin legs, the leg cuff will be flopping around while you're riding. It's loose. You can see even from the picture above that it's loose. I didn't like them when I tried them on. Tried three different pairs of varying color scheme but leg cuff was loose on all. I'm 5'11 175 lbs. The pad seemed thin to me as well. I think other Pearls may be better but the LBS only had these to try.
Bomber Shorts!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cert. Patroller 349 from PA on Friday, June 8, 2018Have had these before but the new ones are an upgrade design as the legs are a few inches longer and stay put better. Last weekend I wore both pair (old and the new ones) on a two day bike tour in Ohio...132 miles in two days and the new ones saved the day on the second day! Adequate padding, great fit and compression support. I have ordered another pair!

Great Biking ShortsVerified Buyer Reviewed by Urban Dweller from Colorado on Thursday, June 29, 2017Best biking shorts ever!
P.I. Elite-In-R-Cool shortsVerified Buyer Reviewed by RiderUp24 from Fleetwood, PA on Friday, June 9, 2017Initially, I was a little disappointed with the sizing. My older pair of medium P.I Attack shorts aren't nearly as tight in the thighs as these but the fit around the waste was perfect. Perhaps they went to more of a Euro fit? So I opted for a size up which alleviated tightness in the legs but now the length is just a little longer than I'm used to. Overall, the chamois is very comfortable even after 3-4 hours in the saddle, and for the price, these are a quality pair of shorts.
Great bike shortsVerified Buyer Reviewed by Triple_S from Texas on Saturday, June 3, 2017Comfortable, affordable, good fit and like nice. Hope to enjoy these for a while. Fit is a little loose in the waist, but perfect for my legs. No issue with them falling down though.
