- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have several different liner shorts and I believe these are my second favorite...
The Pearl Izumi seems a bit cooler. http://www.backcountry.com/pearl-izumi-elite-versa-liner-short-mens . I would not hesitate to buy these, they are a just a bit heavier fabric than the PI shorts.
I'm 5-10" 170 34 waist & the large fits perfectly.
