Rated5out of5byRun FasterfromWonderfulI really enjoy these tri shorts. For the first few times I wore them, I was just cycling. When I did finally do another triathlon, they were wonderful. Dried quickly and fit nicely. Other reviews cautioned me about the drawstrings ripping the shorts if you tie them too tight, so heed that advice.

Rated4out of5byDorangusfromNice short but......These are SMALL, like really small!
I wear everything in a size L and have a 34 waist, but a size L in these wont go up past my thighs!!!!
Yes they are going back. Look like a decent short and nice, yet small rear pockets (don't try cramming anything more than a GU pack in each).

Rated5out of5byRedPhoenixfromFantastic fit and handyThese shorts fit well for me, nice and snug, but I'm also used to wearing compression shorts.
First long ride, they started to chafe around mile 70, but I hadn't applied a generous portion of chamois butter on them, had only used some body glide. I plan to lube them more next time.
Had no problems on the transition to the run from the bike ride and the 2 side pockets for an extra gu pack in each were awesome. I had run out of nutrition on the bike and with a short practice run brick I did not want to spend time refueling my belt. Popped 1 gu in each pocket and I was good to go.
These were on sale, so you can't beat the price for what they provide. Good pad, slightly thicker than my zoot tri shorts, but not as thick as regular cycling shorts.
