Top Customer Reviews
I'm leaving pictures of the shorts and the tags simply because no one else has done so and I would have rather seen them prior to purchasing them.
I bought these for the very reasonable price of $50, and now I see they are even cheaper at $40, so I'm headed over to buy a few more pairs. At these prices, you can't go wrong.
A word of advice: whatever shorts you use (Quest or otherwise), avoid the washing machine as much as you can. When you return from a ride, simply wash your shorts by hand with mild soap (I use Dr. Bronner's) and plenty of water (paying particular attention to the crotch pad), and rinse them well. Hang to dry. My shorts go in the washer only after several rides. I get very long life out of my shorts in this way.

Now a few days later. These shorts went on sale AND I got more of a discount for signing up for Amazon's credit card, so I basically got these at half-price. I bought four more pairs. Happy happy. These are good shorts. Will wear them till they drop of fatigue.
The reviews were decent or better though there always seems to be a 1 Star malcontent. So I bought them. Work perfectly for my riding ability and comfort needs. 5'11" 155 and Levi's 33x32. The size Large is perfect for me.
Here is my official review: A good biking short is generally $70 - 120 each. At this price you can't ask for much. In fact they are actually pretty nice! the crotch is snug but not too tight. I don't want a baggy crotch that will move around during long rides. They don't.
I'm 180lb, my ideal weight is 168lb. That in mind the legs are slightly tight, but absolutely within the realm of medium sizing. The rise (belt line) is very high on these. This is the weirdest part of these shorts. They are cut like mom jeans! They could be cut 2.5" shorter. Waist band tension is nice, not too loose (I have a Levis 32" waist.) padding is fine.
Over all for an average medium sized guy, I give these 4 stars. I would give them 5 stars if they weren't cut like prenatal waist stretch pants.
I love fat guys. That in mind, if you are chubby, medium will not work for you get something bigger.
One of the features on these bike shorts that I really like is the silicon lining on the end on the thigh which prevents the bike shorts from riding up your leg. I do not know if all bike shorts have this but I would image the cheap brands probably do not have this.
The seat pad is probably the main reason you would consider buying bike shorts. I think the seat pad built into these shorts are great. It is thick enough to provide enough comfort for long rides but it also does not look ridiculous when you are walking around. If you have never worn bike shorts before, the pad will feel a little awkward, but it sure beats having your underside be sore for a couple days.
Overall: Comfortable bike shorts that do their job of cushioning your behind. Lots of avid bike riders swear by Pearl iZUMi which is why I decided to go with this brand. It have been over a year since I have had these shorts and they are still in great condition. I would recommend these to other bikers.
I recommend cold washing and hanging to dry. I'm not sure why, but think this seems to make these last longer, as I've gone through several pairs, and learned the hard way.
