This is my first pair of real cycling shorts, and I am totally pleased. I wear them to commute 14 miles round-trip to work, but have also worn them on 2, 25 mile outings with no problems. I would totally buy more of these!
Comfortable short. No issues. Got it for a good price but only after calling 3 different times because you kept sending out lower prices in what seemed like every other day. Customer service was very pleasant and accommodated the lower prices.
Just purchased my second pair to have another pair. Use so far has been completely on a trainer, riding up to 2 hours so far they are very comfortable. No movement, chaffing or soreness so far. Breathability difficult to determine without air flow but I plan to use these on extended outdoor rides as well. Solid.
My wife purchased these shorts for Christmas, I needed a pair for spinning class. I had a old pair of PI and they worked well. The first time I used the new ones I noticed a big difference. Extreme comfort. no chaffing or soreness. Keeps me cool for the most part. These shorts exceeded my expectations, I would even consider using them on 40 mile rides.
I wear my PI shorts for every work out. This is the third pair of PI shorts I have owned. A lot of miles. The sizes do seem to run a little small, but stretch pretty good
Shipment and service excellent.
Bought these as previous year's closeout, so they were super cheap. They fit well and do what they are supposed to do. They don't creep, or move too much. I would be willing to pay full-price for my next pair based on how well these worked out.
This is a solid, non-articulating chamois. Bulky feel, no comfort for long rides. At the price they are fine for a daily commute. These are not your best choice for anything over a 10 mile commute. The shell squeaks on my seat as well. These used to be my choice for my weekday workout ride (~20 mile) not any more. Has Pearl abandoned the 'value' segment of recreational rider wear.
I'll not longer trust a short were the chamois isn't shown.
