Cozy knees.

Fantastic Knicker!

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

I am 5 ft 6 1/2 inches & 119 lbs. Snug fit for a medium, but fits great. The legs around calves fit perfect. Have returned other knickers due to baggy leg bands. I will admit I have thin legs, so for me they fit perfect. The waist is snug over the hips, but when on the fit is great. The fabric is fantastic, very soft.

Cool fabric but runs small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Small

Great fabric - seems very light and technical, but I wear a S in other Pearl Izumi pants (like the Sugar Thermal pants) and these were way too small.

Poorly proportioned

  • Size Bought: Medium

These capris are a great concept but the execution was poorly thought out. The leg part is too tight to go over normal calves and then, once you get a size that fits over the calves, the waist is too big. Then it feels like a diaper falling off. Maybe the next generation will be better.

Great feedback!

Great knickers, smaller sizing now

    Pearl Izumi fabric technology and sizing has definitely changed over the years. The newer version of an identical item now feels a lot tighter. I find their new shorts/ tights are harder to put on, but once on, they fit perfectly. The next larger size would be too big. Sort of annoying, but their chamois technology is still the best, so.....
    Just for reference, I'm a pant size 4, and a Pearl Izumi Medium.

    Runs super small!

    • Fit: Runs small

    I usually wear a small in most clothing, and I got a small in these but couldn't even get them over my hips! Returning to try a large, they're that small... really nice material though with a subtle herringbone pattern.
