Strengths:    Well made, good fit for larger rider.

Weaknesses:    No draw string in waistband, price.

Bottom Line:   
It is tough to find any MTB shorts/jerseys that fit the plus size rider. Izumi makes it possible for larger riders to wear performance oriented clothing like the rest of the MTB world.
