Beware the leg opening!

Reviewed by Taylor from SC on Thursday, July 23, 2015
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.
