Jelantikwrote a review of Gore Bike Wear Power 3.0 Shorts - Women's on July 3, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I like this pants. It's very comfortable and looks well made. I love the waist band. It's so soft and sooo comfortable. Not restricting or digging to your belly. I can hardly feel the waist band around my waist. Also, unlike other reviewer, I don't have so much issue with the chamois. I thought the chamois is thicker than my Gore Oxygen shorts. I rides 4 times a week between 30-45 miles. So far, It's perfect thickness for my girly. But everyone is different down there. I like the length of the short and also like the gripper. The gripper keeps the shorts stays there. I love the color on the gripper as well. It's not over the top like most other brand. Just nice stripes to add accent. Adding touch of stylishness on the black short. I bought the one with the blue accent on the front. It matches my kit and my helmet.
The only thing I don't like about this shorts is that Gore uses a see through material right on your butt. So you can see through your butt crack. Hm, not sure if I want the guy behind me to enjoy my butt crack during the group ride. So to remedy that, I typically wear a baselayer. But even that, in the summer, the base layer is more like a fish net! Now your butt crack view just got a fish net pattern on it.
I'm not sure why these days every company using a lot more see through material for women shorts. I know they are fighting for cooling shorts, but so far any of my shorts that's not using any see through material, I never at once feels like I'm so hot in my shorts! After all most bike short is like wearing an underwear already. How much cooling do you want to get? So that's all my complaint. Other than than the shorts itself is well made, look stylish, comfortable material, good chamois, perfect inseam and I look good wearing it, ... well except if you don't count the see through of my butt crack :-)
