Great tri shorts.
I ordered these for my first sprint triathlon. They worked great! I wore them under my wet suit and then while biking they dried out before I got to the run. They have some padding which helped in the bike portion of 12 miles. I also worn them on training rides for 2 hours at a time and they were fine. I followed the size chart and the fit was perfect. I liked that the bottom portion of the legs were not tight and had a 'straight' fit (other bike shorts I tried on in stores were so tight that it makes your thighs look like bubbles, not appealing).
Fit: Feels true to size

Fits according to sizing chart and meets my expectations. I'm 5"4"' and a lean 125 lbs and I purchased a small.
Zoot Women's Active 8" Tri Short
Excellent shorts! The fit is very comfortable without compressing too much. The drawstring at the waist ensures they stay on with no worries. I went swimming with them and were also great in the water, moving with me comfortably as I swam.

Great Tri Short!
I used for training and one sprint TRI. Worked great, did what they are supposed to. I had hoped they would dry quicker, but I guess that is what it is. I also would've liked if they were a little longer, but that is my mis-judgment of what 8" means. Padding is almost like a "fleecy" material not really padding - great for multi-sport. Material seems a bit thin, so I'm not sure how long they will last, but they did exactly what I needed them to do on race day!
Favorite so far
After trying on about 8 pairs of tri shorts these are the ones I kept. I am very picky about my tri shorts and how they fit me in the waist. I really like the wider waistband- shows less of a line in the tummy area. I wish they came up a tiny tiny bit higher on my waist but overall pretty comfortable. I love the legs b/c they don't have those awful rubber grippers. They might have slid up a little on the bike- but felt fine running. I haven't worn them in the water yet but got stuck in the rain on a ride and they dried pretty quick. They are very thin which I like for hot weather- a little concerned with how long they'll last though. Overall my favorites so far- glad I got the 8" over the 6".

great tri shorts
Great tri shorts! I love the wider waistband- it doesn't bind at the waist, and has a smoother look over tummy. Legs feel comfy. I like wearing these for regular swim workouts with a tri top.

Zoot Sports™ was founded in Kona, Hawaii: the home of the Triathlon World Championships. Chrystal Nylin, a Hawaiian native, recognized the need for a cross-functional suit for athletes competing in triathlons. As a solution to having to use transition as "changing areas," she sought to find product solutions for multisport athletes.
Nylin began sewing pads into run shorts, experimenting with swim fabrics, and attaching run singlets to bike shorts to eventually create the Zoot one and two-piece racesuits for triathletes competing in Ironman.
In 1996, Zoot Hawaii moved to the mainland and expanded the product line. It has now grown to be a global premier endurance sports brand, distributed across 22 countries and has introduced the first Triathlon-Specific Footwear Line. Zoot continues to draw on its history in the sport and its athletes to deliver the most comprehensive, technologically-advanced and complete multisport product line in the world.
