Louis Garneau Men's Optimum 2 Shorts (Dark Night) (XL)
I bought these during the black Friday sale. I had seen the one star review and thought I'd take a chance because they seemed to fit my needs as a weekend warrior rider who typically rides 40 to 50 miles. When I put them on, they felt absolutely wonderful. Most of my shorts that I ride in have the rubberized strip at the bottom of the leg to grip. These simply have a large hem that does the job perfectly. The shorts don't slide up the leg, and they aren't constantly pulling at leg hairs. At the same time, I purchased a cheaper pair as a backup that had the rubberized strip, and returned them as they seemed to be constructed wrong and the bottom flared out. I wish I just bought two of these.

I don't have any history with these shorts, so I can't comment as to how they have changed since the past. But I did a 45 mile ride in them and not only did I finish in comfort, but I did not have a rash burn at the top of my legs that my other shorts cause unless I apply Vaseline before the ride. I did not for this ride and there was no problem at all.

As I mentioned, I returned the other pair and I'm going to buy another pair of these. They are the most comfortable pair of shorts I've ever rode in by a longshot. Full disclosure is that I tend to buy cheaper shorts. But the extra $10 was so worth it for these shorts, I'd recommend them to any of the frugal riders out there that want to finish a 50 mile ride and feel great.

Measurement Guide:

  1. Chest- Take measurement of the circumference around the fullest part of the chest while arms are relaxed at sides
  2. Waist- Measure the circumference of the waist at the natural crease of the waist while keeping tape measure a bit loose (finding natural waist crease can be easily found by bending over to one side)
  3. Hips- Standing with feet together, measure the circumference around the fullest part of the hips at the top of the legs
  4. Inseam- Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg
  5. Body Length- Run a tape measure from the top pf the shoulder, across the chest/belly, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point

Measurement Notes:

  • Keep tape measure level and not too tight
  • For most accurate results, take measurements over underwear or close fitting apparel
  • Take measurements twice with a flexible tape measure to ensure accuracy
