  • Fit: Runs small

The pair I received had stitching missing at waitband; could try to sew, but why, at this price-point. So back they go. *The new pair was is fine condition*. Will say they fit great, except that the waist-line is lower than most...sits almost like a pair of 7's or J brand skinnys, but not so comfortable/practicle for cycling; the waist band also somewhat narrow, compared to some other brands. Nice material and attention to detail (with the exception of sewing!). Chamois very comfortable, good coverage. The side panels match the FR-Carbon jacket perfectly...VERY, VERY SHARP. * Used these recently on a long & very cold/windy ride: Kept me warm the whole ride! My only complaint is the waist band...had to keep pulling it back up! Waist band should have been made wider in my oppinion, also, make sure to have a LONG bike jersey on (as most are, I'm sure), because these ride low...* Four starts for these two reasons.
