Louis Garneau Women's Pro Feel Shorts - Nashbar Exclusive
Space age fabrics are nice, but the center piece of any good pair of cycling shorts is the chamois. The Louis Garneau Pro Feel 2 women's shorts are built around the absolutely incredible Louis Garneau Pro Feel chamois. The Pro Feel chamois uses a Coolmax top sheet for better moisture management, while the variable thickness, high density foam keeps you comfortable so you can concentrate on pedaling instead of how uncomfortable you are. The lycra adds just the right amount of compression and support, and the wide, supportive leg band keeps the shorts in place. The women's specific cut provides a comfortable, flattering fit that will always feel great. They're perfect for long distance riding in hot, steamy weather.
  • Pro Feel chamois pad with Coolmax top sheet wicks away moisture, and has an antibacterial treatment to keep the shorts feeling fresh
  • Multi-thickness, high density chamois foam for better support and ergonomics
  • 2-way stretch chamois for a better feel, fit and performance
  • High quality Lycra provides a good mix of compression and support
  • Enhanced moisture wicking properties help you stay cool and dry
  • Wide, compressive leg band is more comfortable than a gripper and keeps the shorts in place
  • Women's specific fit

        A little tight; not very comfortable

              Comments about Louis Garneau Women's Pro Feel Shorts - Nashbar Exclusive:

              I purchased these after purchasing another paid of Medium LG cycling shorts which fit perfectly. I was disapointed to find that these run even smaller than those and I could have used a Large size for my 120lb 5'5" body.
              The padding isn't the most comfortable after just 20miles and the way that the padding is sewn in makes my leg buldge back out and adds (in appearance only) probably 10lbs to my legs.
              I haven't had any issues with their draw-string but am used to this on most of my gym clothes so it doesn't bother me.
              I've made them my shorts I wear under other shorts and only for riding quick trips (under 20miles). Overall disappointed in the shorts.

              Comments about Louis Garneau Women's Pro Feel Shorts - Nashbar Exclusive:

              I am fairly new to road cycling and these shorts are only my second pair I've owned so in all fairness, I don't have much to compare them to.

              I am a small person, and after looking at the Louis Garneau sizing charts I ordered a size small. These shorts are so small, they look like a childs size small. I can get them on, but they do feel way too tight. I weight 108 lbs have a 24 inch waist and 34 inch hips if that helps for others thinking of ordering these. And after 3 washes, the Garneau lettering on the leg is peeling off and I do wash them inside out.
              I also agree with one other reviewer about the inner thigh bulge looking strange.

              On the plus side, they do have a nice chamois and I do think if I had ordered a size up, they would have been more suitable. I'm an international customer and am keeping them as it's not worth the postage to return them.

              Nice shorts; didn't like fit or chamois

                  Comments about Louis Garneau Women's Pro Feel Shorts - Nashbar Exclusive:

                  I bought these after being quite pleased with a less-expensive pair of Louis Garneau shorts, thinking these would be even better and a nice step up. I love the flattering look of the wide leg bands instead of the gripper leg bands, and they are really nice-looking shorts, but this particular style just doesn't fit my shape as well as others. Maybe it's the higher number of panels in the construction, or for some other reason, but these shorts create very unflattering inner thigh bulges that my other shorts (LG women's Pro Max) in the same size do not (although they do seem to smooth out my outside hip lumps better!). The Pro Feel chamois does feel a little more supportive and firmer/thicker than the Pro Max chamois in my other shorts, but it sticks out too much in the back, at least on me. And it seems like there is more padding for the sit bone area but not enough padding in the crotch area compared to the Pro Max. And I'm not crazy about the drawstring waist, I'd prefer to not have it but it isn't necessarily a deal-breaker. I still think they are very nice shorts, they just don't fit my particular body shape as well, or maybe they are just a tad too small, but that doesn't mean they won't fit other body types or sizes. I'm sure they would look better if I had less flab in the thigh area, and I really think they are sharp-looking shorts, I wish they would have fit better. Returning these; may still try another LG style, hopefully I can find one without a drawstring waist this time. I wouldn't necessarily "not recommend these to a friend" - if the friend had more toned thighs or a more boyish figure and likes thicker padding at the sit bones I would say give them a try! But I wouldn't recommend to a friend with my shape/thighs. I ordered a medium and my measurements are 27 waist 38 hip. As always, fast service and shipping!
