Rated3out of5byfromGood Looks Compromised by Crack RiskOnce I coaxed my wife onto a bike, we could finally go places together, and so quick-drying, breeze-permeable clothes that one could wear into a restaurant or store without drawing stares became necessary. I picked up a pair of these off the clearance rack at my local REI, happy to find an XXL. They look sharp, the fit seemed good, and in the saddle they're a dream. Walking around, though, I find myself hitching them up every few minutes as though my 46" girth is insufficient to strtetch the elastic. So, kudos for making me feel skinny, but the hazard of exposing my bottom for such a thrill seems a bad trade-off.

Rated3out of5byfromBetter than nothingCurrently working my way up to 30 mile mixed street/dirt riding. The good: no soreness so far after two months of training. They wash well on cold/cold gentle cycle, air dry. The bad: they feel like diapers when off the bike, and significantly impede sideways leg movement.
