- Q & A
love the waistband and soft leg openings
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
This is my first pair of shorts that don't have rubber at the leg openings. I love how soft these are there.
The waistband is funky and cool: it kind of slants a bit in front with two pieces joining instead of the traditional elastic that is solid. I like it and it stays up great. Very comfy.
I got a new saddle and I chafe in these shorts where the edge of my saddle is. I don't think it is due to the short. I ride 100 miles a week and the padding is great for my bum, just not for the chafing at the very edge. These shorts got pretty hot around the 'shammy' midride today, but then seemed alright (a 50-miler.)
Basically, I'm undecided if I love them or not. They seem really high quality, I'm just having personal issues :). I only have one other short to compare them to, so I'm on the hunt for others to try.
That being said, I'm really glad I got them and they're super comfy and soft (despite the rubbing.) I love how the material is smooth and not like an elastic grid.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I tried these on as soon as I received them, and my first impression was to love them. Very comfortable, I love the band at the bottom, but I looked it the mirror to discover that they are a bit see through. I will be returning them.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these shorts based on customer reviews. I was "wowed" by them! Instant comfort in the saddle from the beginning and felt comfy for 50+ miles on my first ride with them. The chamois is perfect--enough where you need it and not too bulky. I wear a XL in most cycling shorts as I am "thick" in the middle. I size my waist as 33". The XL was too big and I'm glad I ordered a Large at the same time. The large fit great. The material allows for a comfy, snug but not binding fit. No elastic leg grippers (bonus!) as my legs break out from grippers in the warm summer months. I highly recommend these shorts.
