Great design, the Pro chamois is the best I have tried, super comfortable on 3 hour plus rides. But as with most of my recent PI purchases, assembly quality has nose dived. Not sure if they moved their manufacturing facilities or what. One season on both PI Expedition shorts and Pro Bibs, the chamois pad stitching has begun to unravel, and the Bibs have developed a 1/2 dollar size hole right in the seat area, making them unrideable. Another order of PI socks had a hole in the toe out of the box (they did replaced those). Really unfortunate, so I have been switching to Rapha on sale items when I can find them.
Very comfortable bib, although the padding is a tad thicker than I like (that's why I rated it 4 stars and not 5.
Other than that it's a great bib!
I've always loved pearl Izumi I have a few pairs of their road shorts in size large and they fit fine. I bought this in XL going by the size chart and what people were saying about how accurate the size was. I didn't find it that way at all. They run a little larger I think. My waist is 35-36 and the XL was way too big. The chamois was hanging low in the back. The waist had too much room. I could easily just pull it several inches away from my body. Now I need to decide if I want to take a chance on the Large size.
So far so good. Iï¿½ve done a couple 30ish mile rides in them and they are very comfortable. The material is light almost feels nonexistent. I can see these being my ï¿½go toï¿½ bibs for years to come.
I have sever Pearl Izumi products and these are tied for the nicest,(cold weather bibs are the other set) they really do have a good fit, the silicone leg grippers aren't ideal for hair riders sadly but are still maintaining themselves so the durability is there. The upper is also hardly noticed when riding which is epic. I really enjoy these bibs for clubs and century rides.
Great shorts. These fit great, and stand up to long rides well. Seems and pad are worth the extra $$. This is my 3rd pair of these. If you are looking for all day comfort these are the ones.
Love, love, love these bib shorts. Had bought a couple pairs in an earlier version that I absolutely loved the fit and feel of the fabric (soft as butter, but still providing enough compression/support) but the chamois frankly don't feel right, pinched and or caused numbness in points, and looked a bit like a wet diaper. The new chamois changed all that, and now I have zero complaints. Will buy more as my wallet allows.
Got these on a daily deal. Thought I would give them a try. The material is very similar to higher end bibs. The straps will not chaffe and the material really hugs the body. I have put about 300 mi on these and they are comfortable for 3+ hour rides in the heat. They do show sweat. The chamois is good. It sits on the saddle well and conforms to the body well. hoping to use these for longer rides over 8 hour.
This was the most expensive bib I've bought to date. The quality is exceptional and the fit the same. You won't be disappointed.
Ive worn this brand and make of bibs for years. I e paid a.lotore for others and have always come back to these.
Sizing is right on. The chamois is great. And the fabric is perfectly tailored & incredibly comfortable.
These are now my most comfortable bibs.
I've purchased numerous bib shorts from several manufacturers, some more expensive than others, and these Pearlzumi were as good or better than some costing 30-35% more.
