    Feels true to size

    I purchased these for my first Olympic Tri. They are made with quality stitching and fabric. Not a ton of padding - but that is what I wanted. It fits great under the wetsuit. The only comment to make is that they are short... Look out - a lot of thigh. I am 6"4" so if you are shorter it would be no problem, if you are tall - rock it.

    These tri shorts are fantastic...I use them as running compression shorts, swim jammers, and Bikram Yoga shorts.

    They fit a little tight when you first get them but they will stretch a bit.

    Great product from DeSoto, as always!

    With all tri-shorts, you wish the pad could be a bit bigger. Bikes and runs well. With little pad, no real issue in the water either. Recommend to those looking for a good buy.

    My husband loves these tri shorts! He runs, bikes, and lifts weights in these shorts. These are mid thigh shorts that he loves during our brutal summer months. He also wears these under basketball shorts comfortably for added support. This is his second pair of these!

    Feels too small

    They seem like great tri shorts, but I use other medium shorts and these are too small. I did check the sizing chart as well.

    Feels too big

    I bought these for my husband and the material was good, the style was good, but the fit seemed too big on him in comparison to the measurements that we took. Also, the chamois is felt - hardly enough padding for long distance triathlons.
    I do understand that a felt chamois is the most commonly used chamois for tri shorts... it was not something that I expected when I ordered these.

    I consider myself a physcially fit person with only a tiny bit of mid-section that I would like to be trimmed down. Otherwise, with a waist size of 29-30, this medium sized cycling shorts fit me perfectly.  The only suggestion I have for manufacturer is this: Make the crotch area to be a bit roomier if possible. Otherwise, it is a great piece of bike-wear for gym cycling zone/cycling (won't be suitable/appropriate for over 2 hrs of cycling training though).

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
