Julie and I decided to head out east for the beautiful Columbus day weekend with our boats and bikes in tow. Monday was looking like a better day to paddle so Sunday we set out on a little bike tour of the North Fork with a few planned stops along the way. Now I'm not a fan of spandex shorts, especially if I know I'm getting off my bike in a public place. I always feel like a tool standing around in tight shorts with a huge pad on the toosh. I still can't believe that in the 80's people actually wore spandex and lycra leggings and thought they not only looked good, but looked cool while doing it. As a product of the 80's I was able to resist

the temptation then and I'm not about to give in to the temptation now. So I'm the girl that throws my board shorts over my bike shorts to keep my rock star style. Enter Harlot...

So when I whipped out my Camen shorts for the Sunday ride, Julie's face dropped. She hadn't packed anything near as stylin'. Not wanting to disappoint her, I let her wear the Camens and I rocked the Scarlet Knickers. The first thing we both noticed about the Harlot gear was how remarkably soft and comfortable they are from the outset. We literally took the shorts and knickers out of the bag, put them on and were out the door. This stuff is comfortable!

The sun was shining, the temperature was a perfect 73 degrees or so and the weekend warriors were out in their SUV's picking pumpkins, tasting wine and causing miles and miles of traffic. But with the generous bike lane that runs down the length of route 25 all the way to Orient Point, traffic was of no concern to us. Our first stop was Horton Point Lighthouse on the North side of the North Fork. From our starting point, this was probably about 5 miles out and we were both impressed with just how comfortable the gear remained.

Harlot seems to have really thought out the design of their gear. There were no uncomfortable seams hitting at the wrong spots. The waistbands are designed to sit a little lower on the hips and Harlot has designed their line to have a smaller more pliable pad than most shorts. Welcome to Harlot's BCZ (Beaver Comfort Zone) it keeps you protected in all the right spots.

So we arrive at the lighthouse and its packed. Julie and I get off our bikes and the first thing she says to me is, "love these shorts". We get back on the bikes and set out for the main leg of our ride. A 20 mile ride ending at a winery for a

quick tasting. Here is where we really got a good feel for the Harlot wear. Never were we uncomfortable. Julie said the Camen shorts kept her dry and cool. I thought I might have been a little hot in the knickers on such a warm day but they turned out to be perfect. There was no chafing, pulling, catching, digging or gouging for either of us. I can't stress enough how comfortable this gear is, and I truly LOVE the styling. We both felt appropriately dressed to get off our bikes and go wine tasting.

Cheers and thumbs up for Harlot. They have designed gear that is comfortable, fashionable and and that protects all the right places. If you are a rider who likes to go out and take nice leisurely tours, stopping at a few places along the way this is the gear for you. Keep in mind that Harlot does have a smaller pad built into their gear so I would not recommend you hit up your next century ride in their gear. In that case I think a fuller pad would provide more comfort and protection.

The gear also seems like it would be great for hitting the trails. My mountain bike has been collecting dust (not from riding unfortunately) as of late but if I get out and actually ride it I'll update this review. I would like to also mention here that Harlot cuts their gear very generously in my opinion. You are not going to get the compression from their shorts that you would from say more of a racing short so keep this in mind when ordering. If you are a borderline medium/large you are better off going with a medium unless you prefer a baggy style. One comment Julie and I both found ourselves saying at one point was that it would have been nice to have had a drawstring just to customize tightening the waistband up a bit. But all in all to sum up our feelings... Get a pair you will LOVE them!!!!
