These are good shorts for the money.

I've used these shorts multiple times and they are very comfortable. Several of the rides were 6 hours and they were very comfortable. The padding seems to be in the right spots. The only negative is the material is thicker than I'm used to so I hope it breathes well in warmer temps.

Superb bike shorts

These bike shorts are very well designed and constructed. I don't know whether the In-R-Cool feature really makes much difference, as I haven't ridden these shorts in hot weather yet. What I can say is that they are well tailored and assembled. The seams are flawless. The waistline is comfortable. The chamois is of medium thickness, well-designed, and effective for medium distance rides (50-75 miles). Depending on your sensitivity to saddle sores, more extensive padding might be required for extra-long rides (100 miles). These shorts are a very good value (ratio of quality to price).

Best for the price

This is the third set of these shorts I've ordered over the years. Even though a mid-priced short, I don't find any reason for wearing anything more expensive. I wear them until the padding no longer works, and they still aren't worn out, although the fabric on my last two pair did fade more than previously.

Great product

Highly recommend this product for all riders. The fit and feel are perfect. It definitely blocks the UV rays on hot days. And the chamois is good for any century or more.

fantastic shorts!

Pearl Izumi Elite in-r-cool are great shorts, that wick away moisture so that they dry quickly. The chamois pad is thick and comfortable for long rides (for me that is 50 - 60 miles). I have other Pearl Elite shorts without in-r-cool and I much prefer the in-r-cool shorts - as the fabric is more comfortable. I also have Pearl Pro shorts and like these just as much!! Will be buy more when it is time to replace old shorts.

Pearl Izumi Short is Toughest and Most Durable Short for Cycling

Pearl Izumi Elite short is well stitched heavy duty fabric that maintains its strength, comfort, and wearability over 3 seasons of hi mileage cycling assuming proper washing and drying.

Pearl Izumi definitely outlasts and outperforms the competition - hands down. It wears snug without slip or wrinkle and the chamois wear and feel are superb. My Pearl Izumi cycling apparel has outlasted the competition for 10 yrs.

It's always cheaper to go first class in the long run.

Running smaller than in the past and less durable

I've always work Pearl Izumi shorts and usually the Elite (i.e. orange chamois version). I have two pairs that just won't die - they are over 5 years old and have thousands upon thousands of miles on them. A year ago, I ordered two pair of the Elite In-R-Cool shorts. They were a bit smaller although the sizing was the same as the shorts I had had before so I tend to wear other shorts instead. Imagine my surprised when getting off my bike yesterday and there was a big hole worn in where the saddle contacts on the edge of my thigh. The material just wore out - I've been using the same saddle for years and I've never had a pair do this. Based on this, I think PI is using less robust construction than they have in the past.

They are ok for the price point

I am a recreational rider and typically will be in the saddle for several hours. I find the shorts to be okay on comfort. Some of my older Pearl Izumi shorts seem more comfortable to me but they were in the PRO price range though so that might explain the difference. I dont like the mesh like sections around the waist. The shorts dont seem to fit as snug as older models.

My go to shorts!

I've worn this short for over two years (no - not the same pair) and have accumulated several so I'll have clean shorts on multi-day rides.

They are the only short I'll buy right now. They fit well and have a great liner.

In fact, I don't use any other products of this brand but they have the shorts that are great at any price - more so at the current price.

Nice quality great service

Nice quality shorts that match my yellow jersey. Life time warranty. Some times it tasks a while to get the exchange but so far so good despite the delays.

Probably not the manufacturer's fault.

Comfortable - hope they last

I bought these to replace high end Castelli marathon shorts that fell apart after 10 washes.

The fit has been a pleasant surprise as the chamy is more comfortable than the Castelli's they replaced (and these shorts were [$] each). I particularly like where the seems are located in the rear - a lot different that most of the shorts out there. I usually ride between 50-70 miles a day and the seem placement is a big deal for me. Check it out.

My only concern is that they hold up and don't fall apart as the material seems a little light. Plus I wish they had a drawstring - particularly needed if the material begins to stretch. But so far so go - and I am waiting for the Black/Red shorts to be restocked so I can buy more.

Ride 200 miles every week, all year round a sore butt is inevitable if you don't wear the right shorts. These are by far the best I have wore in 12 plus years.

The padding is exceptionally well formed, no uneven pressure points. Ventilation and coolness are superb. They keep the shape after several thousand miles

great hot weather shorts

I got the bib version last year, and found them great. The regular shorts at this price are quite a bargain. The chamois is great, and seems to be sized correctly in the xl and xxl sizes. The material breathes wonderfully and has just the right amount of stretch. One should be more careful putting on and taking off these shorts than a pair with ironclad material ... however, I've not had any problems with the bibs. My go to shorts for long, hot rides.

Performance orientated Product that live up to it's description.

I was looking for a short that would perform on long, hot summer rides and the Elite In-R-Cool hit the mark. I packed it as the day 2 short on a weekend organized ride (Thanks to the Marietta Bike & Row Club!) They were perfect on the return 65 mile trek. They fit great and were comfy for a long hot day in the saddle. A great value thanks to BTD!

Pleased with my purchase

I am 6' 1 tall and weigh 180 lbs. (although I have gone up to 190 lbs. in some years). I'd say that my thighs are average size - not skinny and not overly large. I like my shorts to fit snugly but without feeling like they're being overly tight or stretched out. I've purchased Pearl Izumi bike shorts the past twenty years and always purchase size XL. Based on reviews elsewhere, I wondered if I should purchase L (Large) this time. I'm happy that I purchased XL as usual. Size XL fits me perfectly just as they've fit the past twenty years. This time, I purchased shorts with white accents just to add some flair. They look and feel great. I've purchased higher grade Pro model shorts in the past. I've only been wearing these Elite In-R-Cool shorts for a couple of months now but think that they fit and feel like the more expensive Pearl Izumi shorts that I've worn in past years. I purchased them from Biketiresdirect at a great price. I'm happy with my purchase.

Good for long rides

Bought a pair of these when they were the deal of the day. Great bargain on really nice cycling shorts. I have two of them now, and I am well satisfied with the comfort they provide. Can't really compare them to anything else, though, since all I have ever ridden is Pearl Izumi, but I would recommend them.

Good quality shorts for sure.

Great shorts, great fit. My only complaint or surprise that I didn't notice from the pictures is the netted see through area near the waists on the sides. You can't really notice it very much and with your jersey on it is covered but it still may be a bit scandalous for some.
