XL runs SMALL
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: XL
I purchased these on sale never having used Shimano clothing. First impression was that all the edges were unfinished, causing concern about durability. Next issue was the sizing. I fit well within the L sizing, but because most manufacturers don't really account for us bigger guys, I always size up. The XL is closer to a 36" waist, not a 38". There was no way I would be able to ride in these.
On another note, I also returned a pair of the Shimano Sphyre (size L) arm warmers as they would not fit over my modest 14" biceps. I will be avoiding Shimano clothing from now on.
