Strengths:    material and fit

Weaknesses:    stitching

Bottom Line:   
Enjoy the fit and comfort of the bib shorts; the lycra material is extremely comfortable. Too many logos, especially the one glued on the rear like a bulls eye. I took those off with hot air to loosen the glue. The rubber logos quickly crinkled and the stitching on the chamois is now coming undone.

Strengths:    Lycra is great. Pad is comfy when not riding up on me.

Weaknesses:    Logos, stitching

Bottom Line:   
These are beautiful shorts, but I find they give me a wedgy(is there such a thing as too much padding?). The materials are top notch, but the stiching is coming apart, and the logos left promptly even with them being lovingly handwashed.

Strengths:    fit. comfy and non-baggy chamois. breathable lycra.

Weaknesses:    Cost. Durability. peeling logos after a month.

Bottom Line:   
These shorts are primo out of the bag. Fit is perfect, silky lycra that breathes well. Seem like superior materials when new.

Problem is they wear out ridiculously fast. I bought two pairs six months ago and they both look like crap now. The logos were the first thing to go, cracking and peeling. I lost an entire Scorpion logo today.

The stitching attaching the pad to the shorts also is coming out on one pair.

Unacceptable for $85, I'm glad I didn't pay full pop like some unfortunate people do.

The fit and comfort are top notch, but for such a legendary brand the workmanship, and quality is extremely poor.

I highly recommend you spend your hard earned money elsewhere.

Date Reviewed: August 22, 2003

Strengths:    Fit

Weaknesses:    Price(paying list, ~$130, would be way too much)

Bottom Line:   
Excellent, in spite of having a size too large they still work very well for me. This pad is everything I could want(haven't tried the Pearl Izumi 3D, therefore can't compare the two) fits very well, has support in all the right places.
