Look great and perform well

PostedMay 31, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I was attracted to these shorts as they have a bit of colour in them instead of the usual boring black. The chamois is really good quality and the overall fit is comfortable. I bought the large size which are a good fit, I'm usually a size 10/12 and would typically buy mediums however due to the colour bands round the thighs it can make for some unsightly inner thigh bulges!

Baggy fit compared to other shorts

PostedMay 27, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable
Nice design and quality fabric, but they were quite baggy around the padded part of the short and seemed to appear longer in the leg than pictured. Quite a bulky feel

Good fit, comfortable

PostedApril 6, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
In the sale they're a good buy. I like that they don't have any rubber grips yet they feel very secure. Haven't yet tried them out on a long ride but, for the price, i am sure they will be fine.

Lovely soft quality fabric

PostedMarch 29, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, not shiny
Cons: tight band above knee
These shorts have a lovely soft fabric, feeling much better quality than the cheaper shiny shorts. They have a good fit/padding and a nice flattering shortish length on the thigh. However I had to return them as the medium size I purchased (I am 10/12) the band around the knee was a bit too tight and resulted in an unsightly bulge… If you have slim thighs just above the knee these would look great.

Great for petite women, nice design

PostedMay 26, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
These shorts are great for petite women, being shorter-cut in the legs (most are designed to sit mid-thigh but if you're smaller, they often go down to your knees - not great if you want 'shorts' and not 3/4's). My only bugbear was the stitching between the colour contrast areas, this bunched a bit, but perhaps that depends on the fit of the individual. Definitely would recommend these - fantastic quality fabric and padding, and as always, worth paying more for a better product.
