      Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Shorts:

      I read some comments about these shorts a little small for their size. I was on the fence between XL and XXL. I am 6'1" around 260 lbs. I cannot walk without having the shorts sliding down. I will return them and get an smaller size. I cannot rate the shorts quality as I cannot wear them (it is asking me to give a number of stars so giving them a three just because of the size).

      Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Shorts:

      Always love Pearl Izumi Cycling products. However I have been using Perfomance Bike Ultra shorts for many years, as they are much less expensive, long lasting, with a very comfortable pad. Decided to try Pearl Izumi this time, as they were on sale. The pad is comfortable, the material is amazing, but they seem too tight. I am a 32" waist and always take a Medium but these are super tight through the legs and hips and make me want to take them off soon after the ride is over.

        These shorts hold up well . Will last at least 2 seasons even with regular wear, comfortable on rides greater than 100 miles. We wash our cycling shorts in cold water and hang to dry.

            I've owned four pairs of these shorts and really like them. This time I ordered a size too large. The return process was very easy.

              Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Shorts:

              These are definitely cut a little smaller than some of Izumi's other shorts - I buy Mediums in their Select line, but had to get these Large (5'9", 160 lbs).
              Chamois is very comfortable; I would prefer about another inch in the length, as the 9" inseam on these leave some of my inner thigh exposed to rub against my top tube.
              Hopefully, the 2017 chamois is of similar high quality; their Attack shorts changed the chamois a couple of years ago to a thinner, less comfortable one - I found myself paying the same $80 for a much cheaper quality product.

              Best chamois I have used

                Comments about Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Shorts:

                I ordered these shorts because of the elite 3D chamois as I find it one of the most comfortable chamois on the market. The in-r-cool fabric is different than any of the other Pearl shirts I own. The fabric is more like a compression material and does not stretch as much as most others. I was a little concerned as they felt a little tight at first fit. ALL my shorts are size medium but these medium felt small compared. After riding for a few miles they felt fine. If you are close to between a medium and a large you might consider the larger size due to the firmer fitting material. That being said, the shorts performed very well. I broke them in on a very hot 60 mile ride and was very happy with them. The material breathes very well and never felt wet from sweat.

                I will likely order another pair of these but might opt for the next size up.

                        I received a pair of Pearl Izumi Elite riding shorts 4 years ago as a present. They are comfortable and fit well. One of the seams is starting to come loose after 4 years. I bought this new pair and the fit is perfectly comfortable. They don't creep up, and they don't sag down. They're just right.

                          Great pair of shorts with excellent lower leg and padding fit/feel.
                          The top of the rear rides a little high for my taste but all other aspects of the shorts are excellent.
