Five Stars despite two minor isses
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
The good: First, I like the stitching and feel that it provides durability. Second, the chamois works well for me, though I typically keep my rides under 2 hours. Third, I feel like the material is thick and strong.
The minor issues: 1) the leg grippers, or lack of. The material at the end of the leg is double layered (and thus warm) and has no grippers. I find myself having to adjust the leg fit the first 10 minutes of the ride.
2) Thick material means I probably won't be grabbing these for hot summer rides (I'm in Texas), but I'm loving them in the fall and spring. The shorts are noticeably warm once temps reach 90 and above. I bought a pair of Pearl Izumi Attack shorts at the same time, and those are lighter and cooler (albeit they seem flimsy as well).
