Shorts, meet tights.
POC's Multi D Women's Short Tights, are, technically speaking, shorts, but we agree that "short tights" sounds more technical and the Multi D are certainly more advanced than your average cycling shorts.
Not only do they manage to combine an ergonomic four-panel design, supportive compressive fabric, and a breathable construction into one lightweight package, but they pack a women's-specific Multi D WO chamois in as well, giving you supreme comfort when you're in the saddle. The chamois has pre-cut, silicone-based VPDS inserts that provide anatomically-mapped support and top-class breathability, while the compressive fabric reduces muscle vibration to ward off fatigue and speed up recovery.
Silicone leg grippers keep the Multi D from riding up (the legs are slightly shorter than those of the Multi D WO Bib Shorts, incidentally), and a high rear waistband provides full coverage when you're in an aggressive riding position. POC also integrated a reflective print for added visibility in low-light conditions, so it won't be quite as hazardous if your ride keeps you out until twilight.

What is the inseam of these shorts?
Heaven in Shorts
- Size Bought: XS
Apparently it is possible to love a pair of shorts this much- I had no idea. These are my first pair of bike shorts, and I don't think I could possibly go with anything else now, POC has ruined me!
To start, these are incredibly comfortable. I could wear them all day on the bike without any pain points. The bands are awesome and keep the shorts in place without being uncomfortably tight. The padding is divine- yes, it's really that good. And the fabric feels great against the skin and breathes wonderfully. Especially on the back! I also love the length. They are also SUPER durable- I've taken quite a few spills on some harsh trails and they keep me protected and don't get torn up.
As far as sizing goes they do fit pretty true to size. I have a 25-26in waist and an athletic build, have them skier legs. I got the XS and they're perfect. The band is a little tight on my quad but not uncomfortable in the slightest, I would prefer that they stay in place- hate when things ride up!
All in all, POC has done it again. 100% worth it, and they obviously make you ride real nice.
These were the perfect length, fit well and were comfortable over a long (100 +) ride the first time I wore them. Buying another pair.
Not good for big legs
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Things that I liked: padding is awesome, the material is very breathable, and the overall quality is great.
Things that I didn't like: very strange fit for a cycling shorts. Run very loose around the hips/butt and very tight around the quads.
Go with Velocio if you have strong quads, they are more friendly towards the big legs build.
