As others have noted, Pearl Izumi shorts run small. I'm a 30, and the WBW size chart says a small should be 29-31.5, but these are borderline tight. (A medium in PI is typically too big for me.) Solid construction, but has an annoying stiff seam jutting inward that sits right on the buttock-will likely soften up with a few more washes, but this is the largest, stiffest, most intruding seam I've ever seen on the inside of cycling shorts.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
I use these in warmer weather by themselves and under tights in cool weather. As with most Pearl Izumi gear they are well made and seem like they will last a long time. I am a 32 waist and these fit me just right. My only minor complaint is that the padding is a bit thicker than I like.
