Gregg S.wrote a review of Pearl Izumi Pro Short - Men's on May 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Very disappointed with PI Pro Short (retail $170.00). Have been wearing PI Pro Shorts for years with great results for quality of fabric, fit, compression and durability. The "New" PI Pro Shorts have new poor quality, very thin fabric and finishing, lack proper compression throughout the shorts at waist and legs, have an internal chamois that is way to large and thick (feels like what I imagine wearing Depends would feel like) and with a 10.5" inseam, the shorts are way too long and cause pulling around back of the knee tendons when climbing out of the saddle (I am 6'1, 158#, waist 31).
Returned for refund and will now be trying to find earlier version of these same shorts or will simple abandon PI brand for upper tier shorts and pick a competing brand after trying on at local retail bicycle shops instead of taking another $300+ chance on this brand.
