    Make the journey easier

    The Pearl Izumi Women’s Journey Short offers excellent versatility and comfort with its unique run-inspired design. The Journey is made with a lightweight, quick-drying polyester and has mesh side panels for improved ventilation. Pear Izumi uses an elastic waistband with snap-closure to secures the fit, and includes a center back pocket to carry your small item while you’re out on the trail.

    The Journey Short features a detachable liner with the Women’s MTB 3D Chamois. The chamois uses Minerale 37.5 polyester with embedded carbon particles that is designed to disperse moisture to enhance evaporation. The MTB 3D is pre-shaped and features Pressure-Relief Tech to increase circulation, delivering the support and comfort you need for longer riders.

    Versatile and Comfortable Sun Protection

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

    These have quickly become one of my favorite shorts -- for more than just biking! The removable liner is a very convenient and I love that Pearl Izumi gave these shorts that option.

    I originally purchased these as a short for biking, but have found that they can be used for any activity when the liner is removed. They have a very relaxed fit, so you can wear them for yoga, running, or even rock climbing! I wore these on a long drive to Fruita, Colorado for a biking trip (without the chamois liner) and I never once felt the waist bunch up or pinch me.

    The material is very soft and cool to the touch as well, with a UPF rating of 50+ so you get comfort and sun protection!

    I love the way these look, fit, and feel!

    Good quality, poor fit for me.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 115lbs

    I really liked the overall construction and quality of the shorts. But the fit seemed a bit off. I ordered an XS, and the shorts themselves fit perfectly, but the chamois sharply dug into my crotch area and left bruises. If I went bigger, the chamois might fit but the shorts would fall off my waist.

    Pearl Izumi Journey Short

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'2"

    I really struggle with women's mountain biking apparel because it's unflattering and the fit is inconsistent. I was pleased when I got these shorts and they're one of the best I've found for my shorter 5'2" frame. Most mountain biking shorts are so long they hit you in a weird spot when you're vertically challenged so the 6" inseam on these shorts is perfect. If you're looking for more protection these are probably too short but if you're going for a low key ride than these are perfect. I like the construction of the waistband with the elastic bands and snap closure b/c it moves with you and remains comfortable. I actually sized up to a Medium even though I usually wear a Small to give myself more room in the hips.

    Versatile and Multifunctional

    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I bought these for my girlfriend, and she wears these all the time. She says the liner and chamois are thin and work for shorter mountain bike rides but the shorts are stretchy and allow for excellent movement. She'll even sport these running and just as casual wear.

    Great Fit and Feel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I was nervous because there were no reviews when I ordered these. Sometimes bike shorts, especially with liners, run really small. I ordered the Medium and they fit PERFECTLY. The liner is nice and the shorts look great. I'm very happy with my purchase.
