Ugh, weird fit or cut or something

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I'm not sure if this is a materials issue, a cut issue, or an issue with my body type (5'7", 120#), but I tried both a Small and a Med in these, and they looked just awful. The stitching bunched in a horribly unattractive way, so back they went. For reference, size small has worked great for me in the Castelli body paint shorts and wind-stopper tights. Great customer service from BackCountry.com on those exchanges.

Responded on

You might like Giordana's FR-C, or their Laser line up. Very consistent in both performance, quality, and style and comfort. I've just discovered Gore's Xenon line-up, and while the chamois is not as contoured as Giordana's, I believe it is more comfortable for long, long rides! Fit is good, and true to size chart.
Just a suggestion to try in the future.
Happy trails!
