Rated 2 out of 5 by from too short This product is listed as 3/4 length, mid calf, and that is precisely why I bought them, but they don't reach my calf at all. I am a size small at 5'4, 110 lbs., and these pants barely reach the bottom of my kneecap. When I'm pedalling they ride above my knee, making them just long shorts. The leg band is loose and too wide to keep the pants gripped at my knee. In all other ways they are comfortable and fit good, but they need to fix their advertising. Inseam is only 16". Compare to Novara's capri pants with 18.5" inseam - now THAT is a 3/4 length, mid calf size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality but a little short Quality of these knickers is just fine as I find typical with the PI. I'm 5'7" so maybe a little too tall for these? There's sticky elastic around the knees which holds them in place but I felt as though it pulls on my skin as I ride. After riding for a distance I start to ignore it but these are not my favorite shorts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not breathable The butt does seem to feel like its sagging, but looks ok. Padding is decent if you're riding 25-27 miles. Main downer: the fabric is not breathable. it locks in sweat and moisture to ensure that you'll feel wet, sticky, and dirty through and through. If you want to experience breathable, try LLL tights (these are not padded cycling tights, but are designed for running and yoga. When I use them to bike, I notice the huge advantage of true sweat-wicking and breathable material).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from knees warm i have rode 40 plus miles in these and they were very comfortable. just the right amount of padding and nice waistband. i am 5' 3" and they fit perfectly length wise. no chafing and even though the day warmed up considerably i did not get to warm in them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Saggy butt I loved them when I bought them. Now, after maybe 10 wearings, they're so saggy in the butt that I worry that they'll fall off when I get out of the saddle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes everything a little more comfortable I've tried to find cheaper version of cycling pants and while I have the quality is definitely less than you will get with this. The fit is really great, and that's coming from someone who has a harder time fitting in conventional sizes. The padding is very comfortable and a little more extensive than some pants. A little nervous there might be too much but I was happy to find that everything was very comfortable, even more so than my previously used cheaper versions. As someone who rides off-road and very extensively, comfort in the saddle is very important to me. These pants passed with flying colors. I also personally love the over-the-knee capri-style tights because I have bad knees and they double as compression support and keep my knees warmer so they don't ache.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the item I needed on cool days Love the P.I. line....the best part is keeping my knees warm on those cooler days. The padding is also very comfortable for the longer rides around 40-60 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, exceeded expectations! I decided to upgrade my padded bike pant, as I train for my first race. I was hoping a better quality would make my saddle sores lesson. These are fantastic, and that is no longer any issue at all! they are also a fantastic fit. These are worth every penny.
