Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts (Black) (XL)
Pearl izumi used to be the best. These are OK shorts but not the quality they were. I don't think I will be buying Pearl izumi anymore. Recently bought some Louis Garneau neo power motion shorts that were cheaper and much better quality chamois and material. Sad to see Pearl izumi quality slip away

Shorts are comfortable but the lower part is loose on the legs, wish it was tighter there

I don't have too much to say about them because I returned them. I am somewhere between a M/L, I ordered a large and when I tried them on the thighs were baggy. So if you're on the border of sizes go with the smaller size.

Comfortable and well padded. 65 miles on a racing seat and felt comfortable the entire trip.

Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts (Black) (XL)
I started riding a road bike several years ago and purchased a few pair of cycling shorts. Padded shorts were definitely something new to me. This Spring I started riding a bit more and was having some discomfort in the seat. I ordered the Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts and was absolutely amazed at how much more comfortable the new padded shorts are compared to the ones I bought several years ago. They are expensive, but I intend to buy another pair very soon. I'm not sure the technology has advanced to enhance the comfort or my old shorts were just no longer effective. The chamois is much larger and offers padding over the entire seat area. I have put about 6 or 8 hours of riding time with these. I highly recommend these shorts.

Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts (Black) (L)
Good fit, pad feels a little thick, but comfortable on longer rides of 40 -70 miles. I'm 6'1 and 180. Waist band OK, keeps pants up but prefer the tie style.

Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts (Black) (M)
Very nice. My new favorite shorts.
Ordered a large at first but they were just a little too big, so I returned them and bought a medium. Perfect.
I wear 35" waist pants.
Swapping was easy.

Pearl Izumi Interval Shorts (Black) (L)
These shorts are very uncomfortable. I bought them as replacements for a pair of Pearl Izumi shorts I've had for years. The padding seems to be too thick and very irritating. I even tried washing them several times and used Chamois Butter.
Waste of money for me.

A great pair of shorts. I've been bicycling for over 39 years, so I know that only quality clothing is offered from Performance.

Measurement Guide:

  1. Chest- Measure circumference around fullest part, across bust points, keeping the tape horizontal
  2. Waist- Measure circumference around the narrowest part (typically the small of the back where the body bends to the side), keeping tape horizontal
  3. Hips- Measure circumference around fullest part of hips keeping the tape measure horizontal

Measurement Guide Notes:

  • Use the chart to determine size
  • If measurements are between two sizes, sizing down will provide a tighter fit while sizing up will provide a looser fit
  • If the measurements for the chest and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the chest measurement
  • If measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, choose the size indicated by the hip measurement
