David Thielwrote a review of Pearl Izumi Elite In-R-Cool Short - Men's on February 23, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The Elite In-R-Cool has been my goto short/bib for a few years now.
Bottom line is that it's an excellent, durable short, that's comfortable to wear and about middle of the road in cost. I think the fit is particularly good for those of us with larger thighs.
I am not an enormous fan of PI stuff, but honestly it's hard to argue with the fact that they do a great job at both design and construction. If you prefer to drop your cash on Assos, be my guest.
