    A great buy at any price These are great cycling shorts. The inseam length is perfect because they are short. (I dislike shorts that are knee length). The padding is great for a long ride more than 40 miles. Legs do not ride up and waist does not slide down like some other shorts do. I currently own 4 pairs. The first pair is 3 years old and still going strong and I ride about 8000 miles a year.

    The Best Bike Shorts w/ Ample Padding This is a good quality bike short, which I expected from Pearl iZUMi. The shorts have ample padding in all the right places that will make longer road and rougher trail rides more comfortable. I don’t like the typical MTB baggy shorts with the sewn in liner; it always seems like something is compromised in terms of quality, hence I buy separate padded bike shorts and baggies.FIT / SIZINGThe shorts run large. I used the sizing chart on this page and ordered accordingly. However, upon receipt they were larger than expected, so I ordered a size smaller, which fit perfectly. The legs stay put, and the waist is very comfortable too.ConclusionThese are the best bike shorts I have ever purchased. I definitely recommend them.

    Chamois not recommended The chamois was very uncomfortable with little padding in the center. It also reaches farther down my legs than any of the other chamois in different cycling shorts that I have. The chamois doesn’t appear to be the same as the one pictured on the Pearl Izumi website. It also appeared to be the same as the ones on the Escape Quest short that I ordered at the same time, and they are supposed to be different. I am skeptical that these are authentic. The legs also appear to have a shorter inseam than pictured. I sent them back.
