    My Troll, why don't you just go away? Nobody here takes your poor advice. You have been proven wrong here numerous times on numerous occasions, yet you double down with the same tired BS.

    Pearl Izumi are good shorts for sure. However, go with the Attack line or higher. The Quest line and lower is junk.

    The Attack shorts are on sale right now for $60. You won't do better than that for a quality pair of shorts:

    What is 'inexpensive'? To me inexpensive shorts are $100+
    Give your budget and someone can give you advice. Otherwise everyone is wasting their time.

    Remember, you said "I understand how important it is to have quality equipment"

    Do NOT skimp on shorts. You'll be sorry and just waste your money and have to buy another pair.

    Agree - that's a good deal and you aren't getting anything worth buying for less than that - you will be Amazed by the difference, trust me (us)!

    Sorry to say I'm definitely gonna have to go inexpensive here so I appreciate the Pearl Izumi suggestion. Any other ideas on who makes a decent inexpensive pair?
    Well, I've had good luck on Amazon with some of the better (more expensive) shorts sold there; got a nice pair for $40, so i'm saving about $20 off what a cheaper Pearl Izumi costs. But, for the most part, the stuff for sale on amazon looks pretty crappy.

    I have Pearl Izumi shorts and like the price and quality. I've found better ones for less on eBay. They are Chinese brands and I've bought some at almost half price of Pearl Izumi. They work fine for me.

    I'm about a 31 waist size so I guess that puts me into a Large short size. Pearl Izumi's sizing chart suggests going one size down for their clothing vs. whatever size you are for normal clothing. Hope that's right. So I'll probably be a medium in the Izumi shorts.

    I'm a 33-34 waist, 5'10" and 170lbs and take a Medium. You would probably take either a Medium or a Small.
