Comfort: Worn over lycra (Under armor compression shorts) the shorts are very comfortable and hardly noticeable. I wouldn't want to use these for an XC ride, but for downhilling they are excellent. They are a mesh material and not designed to be used commando, as they were far less comfortable that way. Put them over compression shorts for best comfort. The shorts are very light and not too bulky. They are not noticeable under riding shorts. Note that these shorts will increase the size of your waist when wearing riding shorts over them, so some looser fitting shorts are best. Size: Size is always difficult when you're not able to try it on before hand. I am 6'2", 185 lbs, and on the smaller side of 34 waist. I chose the size Large (34-36) and they fit well. Not too loose or too tight. It's safe to say that these are sized a bit small, so if you're on the brink, go for the bigger size. Quality: The quality is as good as it needs to be. The pads are thick and seem like they will protect you. The large tail bone pad is nice, and it bends with your lower back. The stitches are all fine, I can't fault them. The waist is draw string, and the string isn't of the highest quality, but it gets the job done. Summary: Great fit and comfort, and excellent value. There's no reason to spend any more money on other shorts.
I bought these to be a preventative measure from a wreck with no padded shorts, and experiencing chunks of "Purple Mountain Majesty" leaving my back side with purple mountain sized bruises and bumps. These have held up well, seem true to size, comfortable, and well padded.
These padded shorts are great! Especially for the price. They fit perfect and have great butt protection as well. I highly recommend these shorts.
fits well good overall protection..fast shipping...recomended!
Good value for padded shorts. I have some padded shorts that fit better, but these are almost as good. Haven't fallen on them yet, but they look like they would do their job.
These fit great and don't shift when riding. Haven't had a spill yet with these on, but I forget that I have them on when I'm riding because they are so light. You can't beat the price either, no one else makes padded shorts for this cheap.
The chamois is really thick on these, which is a good thing for me. I don't get much out of the leg padding and makes it hard to put my winter pants over it, but they were worn a lot in warm weather and feel great.
Have had a pair for nearly 5 years. Saved me a few times. Fit great. Protection where you need it. I am buying a new pair.
