Great shorts, comfortable and durable
by VirginiaBob
Cycling Enthusiast
Northern Virginia

I am an older rider. I ride several hours each week, usually 15-20 miles, during which I tend to try to go as hard as I can (at my age). These shorts are truly excellent. I am looking for shorts that are comfortable to wear, that don't chafe, and which allow full freedom of movement. I find these shorts fill the bill in all respects.

Very Basic
by TFTubist
Cycling Enthusiast
Ramona, CA

I bought these to replace my indoor cycling shorts, but quickly found out that they won't be great for that. I usually rinse out the shorts after a session (instead of washing after every use, might be a bit gross to some) but the foam pad really seems to hold onto moisture as even after hang drying for 2 days, I can still squeeze out water from the pad.

Otherwise, runs a bit small, and is just a very basic pair of padded shorts.

XL is not
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

I'm 6'1" and weight 215. The XL shorts I purchased wear more like a L at best. Also, this new thin, high compression padding is no where as comfortable as the old fashioned chamois. The construction is more like what I'd expect for women's wear as there is no contours for my xy parts! Overall, these are not what I'd hoped for though I'm too cheap not to use them for a while as I look for a better fit.

How to ruin what was a premier brand.

3 of 4 customers found this review helpful.

I have owned Pearl Izumi shorts across the range all the way up to their Pro offering and have had the entry level Escape Quest in the recent past. This iteration (2021) has hit the lowest lows in terms of construction and quality however. I purchased to use indoors on the trainer and quite frankly they are not fit for that use, I cannot imagine wearing them on a ride outside of any duration. Frankly I am disappointed that Pearl Izumi would even put their logo on shorts of this caliber. The experience has me reconsidering whether I will ever purchase another Pearl Izumi product as they have clearly lost their way putting out product such as this. I know the competition is fierce at the low end but seriously why would a premier brand risk their reputation in order to try and compete there?

Chamois is not as comfortable as previous versions

These are decent for shorter training rides. Fit is good, but feels like your carrying a load when you dismount. Should last a few seasons. Buy on sale when you can and you'll get a decent value.

No pad design
by Anonymous

The pad for this short is just a flat tri short type with no pad gender differences unlike the prior configuration. Ok for an hour but I can use previous version of this product on a century ride. I wonder if they will keep making it or just the more upscale models.

Decent shorts but not great
by Anonymous
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

These are the most expensive cycling shorts I have. I have two other cheap pairs from Amazon. These are definitely better than those, but there are still not great (which I guess i should expect considering how pricey bike shorts can get). I just did a metric century in them the other day and they felt pretty good. I wasn't shifting around on the saddle too much. Regardless, I dont think these shorts will be comfortable for any longer than about 60 miles, at least for me.

Good fit, rough pad
by Anonymous

1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

I like the fit. The legs are long enough, the padding is located in the right place, there weird fancy hems.

CONS: The fabric of the padding is extremely rough and causes chafing and pain to the nether regions. Even after numerous washings, the rough texture persists. Lots of chamois cream required.

These are horrible shorts. They look nothing like the picture. Perl Izumi has gone way downhill as far as I'm concerned. I bought a few of these 5 years ago. Same item - Escape Quest shorts. The old ones are excellent, so I decided to get a couple more pairs. WOW, have they gotten bad. Cheaply made - worse then the knock-offs that can be had for 1/2 the price. They have a single zig-zag stich around a flat piece of padding - not contoured like the old shorts. Extremely uncomfortable to wear and I look like a fool wearing them as well. Pearl Izumi used to mean quality. Now it just mean how cheaply can we make something and sell it using (what used to be) our good name. No more P.I. for me.

So disappointed in these shorts. I have several pairs from 2014, which are still going strong, even after thousands of miles. So I decided to get a couple more. The 2014 version has double stitching, no overlapped seams, grippers on the bottom all the way around and a contoured pad. They are great shorts! The new version has single stitching in a zig-zag pattern which just looks dumb and obnoxious, overlapped seams (this will get totally irritating and annoying after just a few miles), a few grippers pieces in the bottom, and a pad that is a single huge piece - extremely uncomfortable. Sadly, the quality of PI has gone WAY down as I've had the same issues with their jerseys. I feel like PI is no longer a brand that I will buy. I've gotten "cheap" no-name brands that have had better quality, which is sad when you are paying a premium for PI. The short literlly look like something you'd pay $10. So disappointed.

Great value
by Anonymous

These are my "go to" bike shorts. They are comfortable and the leg bands are tight enough to keep the legs from riding up. Ive wirn these shorts for short rided, centuries and double centuries with no issues. I've tried other brands at the same price range or cheaper and I've been disappointed each time.

I LOVE the chamois!
by Anonymous

6 of 6 customers found this review helpful.

I've seen a lot of reviews lately on these shorts and how people aren't liking the chamois in the newer pairs. Personally, I LOVE the uncontoured chamois. There are no less or more padded areas which for me gives an extremely comfortable, consistent level of comfort in the whole area (sit bones, perineum, etc). These are more comfortable than my contoured Specialized shorts which are $20 more in price and i can only make it about 20 miles without those bothering me. Give them a go. You may have the same result!

These are comfortable, padded riding pants. Eventually, mine last about 5 to 6 years, the material will wear out and a new pair is needed.

So guess what? A new pair of cycle shorts can make a huge difference. It's especially true when the manufacturer has improved the product. The Chamois and the construction of the shorts are both improved the the pair I bought several years ago.

Bulky chamois; Only good for short rides
by GCLobban
Cycling Enthusiast

5 of 5 customers found this review helpful.

This is a solid, non-articulating chamois. Bulky feel, no comfort for long rides. At the price they are fine for a daily commute. These are not your best choice for anything over a 10 mile commute. The shell squeaks on my seat as well. These used to be my choice for my weekday workout ride (~20 mile) not any more. Has Pearl abandoned the 'value' segment of recreational rider wear.

I'll not longer trust a short were the chamois isn't shown.

I have several other PI shorts and love them. These lack sufficient padding in the rear area. As such, it's easy to chaff during a long ride. Spend the $ and get better quality shorts.

The Quest short is a great price for a six panel short of high quality lycra. Excellent chamois, neither too thick or too thin. Perfect length (I'm 5'8). Bookmarked these so I could buy another pair in the future.
