The Yeti Cycles Women’s Ruby Liner is cool and comfortable and in a great colour.
These liners are well thought out with lots of elements to support a comfortable day out; wide waist band and leg cuffs, mesh style fabric panels, and a comfortable chamois.
Worn under a set of baggies for the long day out in the saddle Ruby Liner were comfortable and required no fidgeting or ‘breaking in’ as sometimes a new set of liners may need.
I felt that the waist band, although nice and wide could have fit slightly higher up my back, and I did tug at it to start with to ensure it was higher than my over shorts.
The leg bands are great, nice and wide with no rubber or silicon band. I often get a heat rash with other leg bands so these liners made a pleasant change.
I did find the sizing a touch snug – these are sized as a 12-14. I am a pretty standard 12, and they were tight. The seams around the top of the leg bands felt uncomfortably tight when walking around, although were better while biking. I do have ‘proper cyclist thighs’, but a brand like Yeti Cycles should surely understand this.
The turquoise colour is very ‘yeti’, and I quite liked it. It may not suit all, but under a pair of baggies, it’s quite nice to have a little colour in your life.Verdict

Sizing is on the small size, and does account for cyclist thighs!
Waist band should be higher.
