Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Newbie to cycling and haven't been wearing jerseys long; usually just wear a tank. But decided to get some jerseys due to the longer training rides and and century and half I just finished. This jersey was very light, breathable and not to tight. I especially appreciated the sleeves as I had also bought the P.R.O. jersey and the sleeves are VERY tight. In comparison to the standard jersey I received for my ride, this jersey(pearl izumi select) breathed a lot better. It does have 3 decent sized pockets which I pack full of scoobie snacks now. Don't know why I put off wearing jerseys for so long... Overall pretty satisfied. 1 star less because I also bought another jersey (castelli promessa) and that literally felt like I had nothing on . I was in heaven on those long hot rides.

Newbie to cycling but just finished my first 150 mile ride; I was sure glad I bought these before my long ride. I wore these for my first 90 miles . These definitely were an improvement to my Rei brand capri's. I was surprised I could tell the difference but the compression, that the Louis Garneau bike shorts have definitely help prevent muscle fatigue for those longer rides, and great for my circulation since I tend to swell. I was purposely looking for a long short that would go right above the knees, and these definitely do that . They do ride up a very tiny bit maybe an inch if that but not a lot. I have one of those unusual biker bodies where I'm tiny on top(S) and large(XL) on bottom with sausage like legs with no shape so these were great looking on in comparison to other shorts out there and it didn't cut off my circulation like many other bike shorts do, due to shorter lengths. I didn't think I would like the higher waist but turns out it was very comfortable and perfect because my cycling jerseys were short in the torso so it worked out great. The chamois is great for long rides like 50+mile not to bulky but breathable. These are now my go to shorts, very comfortable. Definitely will be buying another pair when I can save the money. 1 star less (tried to put 1/2 but it won't let me) just for the slight riding up they do but it is not much and it maybe due to my thick legs.
