    I cycle-commute to work 20 miles every day. I wanted some cycling shorts that were cost effective, fit well, had a decent quality chamois (padding) and were styled as street clothes appropriate for an office environment. I stumbled upon these at a discount price ( < $30) and really like them.....so I bought two more. To date, I rotate through the three pairs every week and after six months don't notice any appreciable wear. These have been perfect for my application and I highly recommend them.

    I agree with the other reviewers that these shorts really help the bike comfort level. On my just made up "pain-in-the-butt" scale 1-10, 10 = my butt is on fire, these shorts are about a 4 as indicated below:

    10: butt on fire
    8: regular athletic shorts & road bike seat (narrow and not much padding) "I need to stop riding for awhile!"
    6: regular athletic shorts & wide bike seat with gel cushions and shock absorbing springs "OK, but still sore after a 20 mile ride"
    4: these shorts with padding & wide bike seat from scale 6 "Ah, that's better!"
    2: My comfy office desk chair that I sit in all day
    1: My microfiber deluxe reclining couch potato sofa

    Key things to look out for:

    This manufacturer seems to be size and length of drawstring challenged!

    1. If you buy the XXL size, you will need to also buy a longer drawstring and install it. XXL is about 44 inch waist and the drawstring is 48 inches. I could not tie it. In fact, I had to fish the drawstring out from inside the waist band it is so short. The company needs to fix this. I would have given them 5 stars if the drawstring was the correct size.
    2. Watch the price on these. In the 2 weeks I was returning the XL size because it did not fit (normally I buy XL) and the first XXL size because the price had changed, the price went from $34 to $40 to $22. At the time I'm writing this review they are $24. Really strange. The Amazon free shipping return policy made it not a horrible experience, but who needs to go through that again.
    3. Buy a size larger than you think you'll need. In looking for a standard waist size chart on the web, it became apparent that not all manufacturers are the same. This manufacturer definitely is on the smallish end of the range, so if you normally by XL, you will need the XXL. I would assume the same for the other sizes.

    You can spend more and get a better pair of biking shorts, but these are very good for the money. Padding is OK, but not as thick as more expensive shorts. I bought several pairs in various colors. I do like the fact they look like a regular pair of shorts instead of the typical skin tight biker shorts. I can actually get off the bike and go into a business without feeling self-conscious about the shorts I'm wearing. Rode over 2K miles since early this year, almost all of those miles in these shorts sometimes as long as 70 miles at a time. They are reasonably comfortable even on the longer rides.

    I enjoy cycling and ride maybe 30 miles a week so I know I'm not a "hard core" enthusiast. Nevertheless, I was looking for a pair of shorts to make the ride more comfortable without making me look like a freshly shaved goober (sorry, I am NOT shaving my legs!).

    These are quite comfortable, don't ride up, and don't make me self-conscious when walking around afterwards.

    I've been washing them on the gentle cycle and line-drying them to be on the safe side. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a larger size than I normally wear (I'm a 34" waist and ordered a Large) and am glad I did.

    I purchased these shorts because I have pain in my back when riding, due to a broken tailbone 8 years ago. A friend recommended them to be, since he felt they would reduce the pressure from sitting on my tailbone when riding. Sure enough, it has significantly reduced the pain I feel when I ride. I have done 2 hour rides wearing these shorts and the pain was bearable. These shorts also do not rub anywhere, and overall keep me cool and comfortable. For $40, these are an excellent value compared to other shorts on the market.

    These shorts are very comfortable, the liner is like a comfy version of typical biking shorts, with a proxy for the classic chamois. The liner extends pretty far down the thighs, with good elastic at the hem. The front pockets are deep enough to safely contain keys etc, and the back pocket has a very secure velcro which keeps your wallet inside. You can walk around in public in these shorts without embarrassment (to you or others!). Great shorts - but the liner could be a little shorter in length.

    Bought these shorts when I started bicycling again. I wasn't quite ready for the hard core (read: skin-tight) road bike shorts. These shorts have been excellent - good fit and very comfortable for riding (Ihave a road bike seat on my hybrid bike). A side bonus: they work great as workout shorts for the gym - again, very comfortable and good support. My only problem: I've lost a bunch of weight, so now I have to buy a few more pairs at a couple sizes smaller.

    I have a 34 waist and I bought the Large and while they do fit, they are a little baggy and the inner liner is not as snug as I would like it to be, which can cause some chafing in certain sensitive areas. This can be extremely uncomfortable. I would recommend buying a size on the smaller side of what you might normally wear.

    Por el precio es un excelente short, simplemente el cojin que lleva dentro suele valer más que el short completo. Al momento estoy muy satisfecho, la calidad es buena y hasta ahora todo bien
