These are great cycling shorts.

The leg gripper keeps them in place without pinching and adding that attractive leg bulge that so often comes with riding shorts.
ThomShap
Great fit, true to size, nice chamois padding, and flexible fabric.

I've been wearing these in cycling classes and love them. The padding is comfortable and the elastic on the bottom of the legs prevents movement. They hit at about mid thigh. Waist is comfortable too. I wasn't sure about sizing, but I'm 5'6", 135lbs and I ordered a small. They fit perfectly. Highly recommend.

Size Name: X-Large
These shorts are long enough (come to about an inch or 2 above the knee) and the padding is terrific. Be sure the check the measurements for sizing before ordering because you'll likely need a size larger than you would for street clothes. I wore out the last pair of Pearl Izumi's and I like these even better.

I just started spinning at the local gym. Got these and they are a good standard, pretty much exactly as I imagined them. Fit is true to size and the legs have grips on the bottom so they do not ride up. Overall, a good purchase! (I got another cheaper pair also and those I did not like as much)

So I was riding in bike shorts I purchased back in 1985 that had actual chamois for padding. Though this was good for wiping down my car after I washed it, it was not so good for protecting my lady parts when riding. Enter the PI Quest short. I like everything about these shorts. The padding protects my nether regions without making me feel like I'm wearing Pampers and is sufficient both in back and in front, which is where I had more of an issue. The leg gripper keeps them in place without pinching and adding that attractive leg bulge that so often comes with riding shorts. They also run true to size - I wear an 8 in pants and the medium fits well. I wear them regularly on my commuting rides which are 10-12 miles. I imagine on longer rides, you would start to feel your seat a lot more and would want a more heavily padded short, but for short and medium distance rides (I've taken them up to about 20 miles so far) these are perfect. In fact I bought a second pair so I can still have a clean pair when one is in the wash.

I bought these shorts because of the many positive reviews and the reasonable price point. I do a 1hr spin class 2x/week and go for 25-35 mile bike rides on the weekends when the weather permits (may - november, here in WI).

For the price, I'd say these shorts are well constructed and good quality though nothing special. After 25 miles my sits bones start aching a bit but i have had no issues with chafing. I have another pair of Pearl iZumi shorts from about 6 years ago and I think the sizing has gotten a little smaller since then. My other shorts are size small and fit the same as these in size medium. Maybe the older ones are just stretched out... Additionally, the inseam of these shorts is a bit longer than i'd like. I'm 5'10" and they land about 4" above my knee.

Bottom line: i get a good amount of use out of these, but i probably would not buy them again.

Size Name: XX-Large Verified Purchase
Let's just say I'm quite well proportioned, and so always having difficulty finding a product in which "large" actually means that. These are nice, stretchy, comfy knicks, and the padding didn't cause any issues from new. The waist was high enough, and the leg bands were firm without being tight. They actually are a little bit longer than I expected, and the lycra feels more stretchy than my previous versions, but overall exactly what I wanted. My old PI's are over 10 years old, not sure these will survive that long, but the brand is definitely one of the better quality makes I've come across.

Given all the variations in body style, riding terrain, bike setup, etc., it can be hard to review a product such as this in a way that will be helpful for everyone.
Compared to the Canari gel liner shorts I had been using previously, I am much happier with these. But I suspect there is probably a more expensive pair of padded shorts out there that I would love even more than these. But I am not yet willing to spend money on those, so I am going to stay with these for a while.
Also to consider is the seat being used. I have an Avenir 100 women's road saddle. The combination of those two keeps me comfortable on my regular 10 to 15 mile rides. I believe it takes the right combination of saddle and shorts to make for the most comfortable ride. If you have these shorts and you are miserable while riding, consider the saddle you're riding on (along with the setup of the bike--seat height, handlebars, etc.)
These shorts do run long, which I like. I also like the grippers on the leg--they keep the shorts in place but are not uncomfortable and don't chafe. The seat padding feels great on my sit bones, but I wish there were more padding in the front (the nether region, as some would call it).
The shorts are comfy to wear and they have been a great improvement over the very basic shorts I had been using. I would recommend these to someone who doesn't want to spend a whole lot of money but needs substantial cushion for rides.

Update: Yesterday I took a ride but wore my gel liner shorts instead of these Pearl Izumi shorts. I could tell a huge difference in the comfort! It was through a ride in a pair of inferior shorts that I was able to realize how wonderful these Pearl Izumi shorts are! Now I don't ever want to ride without them!
