Good quality, great ride - thank you
The legs on these are super comfortable and the material is great. The chamois is also really great. I'm unsure about the waist. They come up fairly high at the front and lower at the back. When I ride the sometimes roll over at the top. Maybe I should have gone a size larger. All my cycling shorts are size L though.
So great, especially the band around the thigh !
Great Fit and I loved the cute print! But I only went on a 14 mile bike ride a few days ago and I can still feel it! These shorts did not provide the level of comfort and protection that I was expecting on the bike!
