Rated 5 out of 5 by CycleGirlNY Comfortable and a good fit
This shorts are so good I purchased a second pair. I even picked up a pair for my non-riding sister. She couldn't believe a pair of shorts would make her ride more enjoyable. Now she's a convert. The padding made all the difference.
Buy a size up. I'm generally a size medium and am much happier in a large.
Enjoy the shorts. They are great!

These are the first cycling shorts I have owned that are truly comfortable while providing optimum protection for extended cycling on rough backcountry roads.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cloff Adequate for the purpose
These pants seem to work better than not having them for cycling. The padding seems a bit meagre though. I've had better.
In addition, they run VERY large. I ordered the largest size and it said it would be several inches small, according to the measurements given. When I got them, I am SWIMMING in them and I am sure I could have got down a size. Since I am losing weight, I will just use them as long as they stay up, and then throw them away and buy something that fits.

I am always a medium. Size was off and legs tight. Well made. Will get the large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatherineG LOVE THESE SHORTS!
I bought these because I had size M's since I was a teenager and they just didn't fit anymore. These are wonderful! They have a comfortable amount of padding that doesn't bunch or feel like a big diaper. The waistband is wide, like a yoga pant, so that the shorts come up high enough on your lower back to be comfy. This creates a nice, smooth fit (no muffin top!).
The legs are a great fit too. The band isn't terribly tight and it's just sticky enough to stay in place as I cycle.
I've done two 50 mile rides and these and I couldn't be happier :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by MciFW Glad I found these
The price was excellent and the quality high compared to what I've seen in sporting good stores and bike shops. I'm very pleased.
The padding is in the right spot for me and is effective.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NPBiker Pants dont Fit Right
These bike shorts are very high quality , and the padding in them is the best I've seen. But they are cut very low in the front and they keep falling down in the front and are uncomfortable when walking around .While biking they are okay. I see from the picture above that they are cut lower in the front, but it is uncomfortable and I am sorry I paid $50 for them. So beware of this factor if you want to purchase them.

I always choose Pearl Izumi cycling shorts. They fit true to size and are completely comfortable whether you take a short ride or go for the long haul.
This newest pair of bike shorts does not disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fishlady99 Nice Cycling Shorts
These shorts fit amazingly well, and have enough padding for a comfortable bicycle ride. I rode for an hour in them the other day and did not experience my usual soreness. I would definitely recommend them.

I love the extra padding in the seat and the nice fit. They don't ride up, either!
