Brands:Brand: PEARL IZUMI
Our top trail shell short is ready for the unexpected. Lightweight and durable 2-way stretch fabric moves with you and an adjustable waist lets you dial in the perfect fit to keep you in control when the trail gets technical. A durable, water repellent coating keeps you protected from the elements and makes clean-up a breeze.
I Tried the Pearl iZUMi Elevate Shorts, Pearl iZUMi Summit Shorts, and Pearl iZUMi Canyon Shorts. All three are identical in regard to quality manufacturing. However, the Elevate shorts are a little baggier and definitely the longest of the three. The Elevate shorts fell just below by knee, whereas the Summit shorts falls just at the top of my knee; about a 3.25” difference. Both fit well and were comfortable, but it came down to preference, so I went with the shorter Summit shorts. I did try on a pair of Canyon shorts at a local store and they fell above my knee by several inches.
I am 5'6" 125 wear a size 4 and these fit perfectly. They would look fine without a chamois under too. The material is waterproof and waist adjustable. Excellent value for this brand!
I love the length, fit and fabric weight of these shorts!
