Love/Hate.: Love pockets, hate the fit
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I bought these for the pockets as when it is very hot sometimes i like to ride with a dry fit compression shirt and still need some pockets. The pockets are great in location and fit. Phone goes in, never feel it. What i DO feel is the discomfort on even relatively short rides. Longest ride in them is just 20 mi. If I went farther I would be accused of masochism. The pants come up high on the abdomen and roll over. The front of the pants and chamois just don't work to protect your privates. I typically ride Assos, Giordana FR-C and there are no issues at all with your equipment. After 15 miles, sometimes before, the chaffing and lack of a place to stay home is terrible. These cost way too much to have such poor fit. I am relegating them to short, hard training rides where I can get my intervals in before any serious discomfort sets in. If Assos or Giordana had leg pockets . . .
