I already had two pair of these and liked them. This pair was much tighter through the crotch despite being the same size as my others. A bit disappointed, relegated these to short rides. On the bright side, i can now hit those high notes.

I have a store bought pair if these same shorts, but the Amazon shorts are much smaller and don't fit as nice. Decal coming off it's almost like these are knock offs

As others have commented the sizing on these shorts seems to be different to other models in the Pearl Izumi line. I normally take a Large "Attack" short. These "Elite" are considerably more snug. Quality of build seems OK, but does make me wonder if they're a knock-off.

They're great, and the ventilation definitely helps in hot weather. I also like the white side panel, which is more visible than just all-black. One thing, though, I do not see a huge difference in comfort from the cheaper Attack short. I regularly ride 50-75 miles and haven't noticed a difference.

Every other year I find my previous cycling shorts start to loose their bounce and cushioning somewhat and I buy a new pair. Izumi has consistently been my go to brand because I feel the updates they do to the material, and/or fit always serve me better on rides. The cut is just right. No lose material, and no tightness really anywhere. The cushioning is very supportive for long rides on the road bike. You do get hot and sweaty down there, but sitting up will introduce some air circulation, so unless you bike in hot humid conditions a lot, this isn't a huge problem for me. They hardly ride up my thigh. Feels like a second skin and just about perfect when I'm on the seat pedaling away.

Great shorts, very comfortable, but they run smaller than other PI shorts I own. I'm 6'1", 180lbs, and wear 32x34 jeans. I have always fit well with medium PI shorts (the size recommended by size chart for my waist size), but I ended up with a large for these. I'm a happy PI customer, but typically only buy one of any particular model. So far these have been the only ones to not be consistent with size. I can only deduct 1 star for this, and regardless would recommend these to a friend.

Love these shorts! They fit well, are very well constructed, and are LONG ENOUGH. The (fake) chamois is very comfortable. I'm a tall woman who can't stand women's cycling shorts because they're ridiculously short. These PI's are awesome. I'd rate them 4.5 stars, with just .5 taken off because the edges of the chamois (or perhaps it's the stitching?) have one or two spots that feel a trifle "poke-y"--- you know, the feeling that some edge or prickly, splinter-y thing is poking your skin. I don't feel it all the time, only occasionally. It's just that the short is so excellent overall that it's a little disappointing that it has this one minor flaw. I only notice it once in a while on my inner thigh, depending upon how my leg moves.

I used to love Castelli shorts, but their quality has plummeted in recent years. I'm glad that PI has managed to keep their quality high. I definitely recommend these shorts. (Although I can't stand PI's arm warmers--- durned things absolutely do NOT stay up!)

I am 6'4" with a 34" waste. I bought a size large. They fit great, are comfortable and look good. I'd definitely buy again.
