Good pocket feature .
January 30, 2016
The pocket feature is a great idea, especially for me since I don't like reaching back for the rear jersey pockets. Little flat items fit great in the pockets, not good for stuffing jackets and water bottles. Small treats and energy packs would fit nicely. Besides the pockets, the overall quality of the shorts is very good. The padding was very comfortable and the shorts did well on my 22 mile ride. I might buy another for my 2016 Aids/LifeCycle ride from San Fransisco to Los Angeles. I would definitely recommend these pocket shorts for any kind of ride.
Pros:
Great quality shorts with great mesh pockets and padding. Made in the USA, can't beat that.
Cons:
Could be offered in multiple colors or designs.
Best Uses:
Any distance ride, any level of rider.

Nice Cycling Shorts - Nice Features
August 16, 2017
I really like the innovative design with the mesh sides, as I like to keep certain things handy, and this will do the trick. The Gel seat is just what the doctor ordered, and really helps out when riding. I would highly recommend both the company, and these shorts to anyone who is larger and really wants to get into cycling. I bought basic black, so I could wear them with anything. I started with Aerotech when I was 40 lbs heavier, and could not find any cycling clothing that would work for me. I got tired of talking with 140 lb cyclists at the bike store, who basically told me to give up... but Aerotech has lines of clothing for almost anyone. I had purchased a pair of mountain bike type shorts a couple of years back, and I'm still using them today -- they have worn like iron. I purchases these cycling shorts to update my clothing and get a better fit after losing weight -- I used the size chart -- and they fit extremely well, and I still have some 37 lbs to lose!

Comfortable shorts for a long ride
July 30, 2017
Having just finished RAGBRAI I can recommend these pants. The gel padding makes a big difference whether the ride is short or long. I wore these all week and have been very happy with not only the fit but the comfort. I have four pairs of these now and they're the only bike shorts I'll wear.

The mesh pockets are really handy
July 28, 2017
I like the pockets for after I ride and I need a place to put my wallet, keys, etc. The padding in the shorts didn't live up to the hype though. I only ride on weekends, so I don't have a "conditioned butt", so I look for a thick pad. These are OK, but not as good as the Bontrager shorts I have. However, they cost quite a bit more. So, overall they're OK.
Pros:
Pockets

Absolutely the best padded shorts - the pockets are a bonus!
July 24, 2017
I have very little muscle over my sit bones and on long rides always got sore. The padding in these shorts is wide and thick, but don't bind or interfere with movement. The pain is gone. The mesh pockets are invisible, but handy to keep an ID, bandanna or other soft items; I'd not recommend as a substitute for your jersey back. Overall great product and I bought a second one.
Pros:
extra wide and thick padding mesh pockets
Cons:
price, but worth it if you have pain
Best Uses:
long rides

My favorite bike shorts
July 8, 2017
I really like these shorts! They fit great (may run a tad large), have excellent chamois and the mesh pockets are crazy huge, but resume shape when unloaded. THese are nice for just leaving on for a drive home after a ride, because you can put all your regular carry-junk back in the pockets.
Pros:
See above.
Cons:
None
Best Uses:
All riding - they're really comfy.

Love these!
July 3, 2017
I just did a 150 mile ride in these and they are the best shorts I have. I will be buying another pair! Even in the rain, they were perfectly comfortable.
Pros:
Padding is great and the pockets are really useful for small things. Not sure I'd load them up but that's just me.
Cons:
None as yet!
Best Uses:
er....cycling? What else aM I going to put here? They are cycling shorts :)

Love the pockets
June 17, 2017
The mesh pockets are very useful and allow me to wear normal cycling shorts vs. cargo cycling shorts which aren't very comfortable.
Pros:
Mesh pockets allow carrying several items securely while riding.
Cons:
Very pricey at $80.
Best Uses:
Cycling

Great feeling even after 4 hours.
June 13, 2017
I have worn these shorts 3 times so far. I was very impressed on the two short rides (under an hour and a half) so I decided to wear them on a metric century. No problems. The fit is very comfortable and the chamois is great. I have not really used the pockets as they seem a little odd. Maybe they will grow on me. These compare nicely to other shorts that are more expensive.
Pros:
Fit Quality Long ride comfort
Cons:
None so far
Best Uses:
Road biking

Good, but not what I expected.
June 6, 2017
I have been purchasing my biking shorts from aero/tech/designs for a few years and Love them. The pads are thick, actually i wear 2 pairs each time i ride thus giving me all the padding i need. I am 150 pounds and ride 5 to 6+K miles each year spring-fall. For some reason these shorts just did not feel right with 2 pairs on so i just used the new pair, and the padding was not enough, shorts were uncomfortable and created some sore spots on my butt. I ended up going back to my regular 2 pair system and have no issues at all. I will definitely try the new pair again with a second pair of bike shorts and hope that this time they work well. I like the mesh pockets and the overall fit, BUT like i said they did give me some uncomfortable miles.
Pros:
Mesh pockets
Cons:
Did not like the string around the waist, the padding just did not seem correct to me, gave me some sore spots on my butt.
Best Uses:
Road biking

May 2017 Gel Shorts
May 31, 2017
I love these shorts! I'm a big rider at 215 lbs @6'0". I've been doing 200 miles a week for the last month and these shorts keep my rear end from hurting. I have the XL size and they fit great. I haven't really used the mesh pockets much but they certainly work and you don't even realized the pockets are there. I now own 3 pairs!

Comfortable. Great pockets!
May 25, 2017
These shorts fit comfortably and the gel padding is excellent. I've been surprised by how much I've used and appreciated the side pockets--a convenient spot to stash keys or phone or anything you want quick access to--much easier than digging in a back jersey pocket. Highly recommended.

Nice pair of shorts
May 24, 2017
These may be my best pair of bike shorts right now. The gel is comfortable. The pockets are useful -- need more experience to see if they will hold up.. the leg seams above the knee seem a bit irregular - do they fold up underneath or extend down? Still trying to decide.
Pros:
Good padding, comfortable. Pockets are utilitarian.

Cycling shorts with pockets? Great feature.
May 23, 2017
These are one of the only cycling shorts I have found with pockets. A great feature, not that I use the pockets while I cycle long distance, but they are great to have when needed. The cycling short pockets are an excellent, safe place for temporarily holding things before I get on the bike, or if I have to stash a rain jacket layer.
Pros:
This is my 2nd pair of the exact shorts and they lasted many miles.
Cons:
My only complaint is when I got the new pair the fabric itself on the shorts seems a bit thin, almost see-through when I stretched it. Not the padding but the fabric itself, when I stretched it, seemed not as thick as I remembered my old ones or would have preferred because I like a little more privacy shield. But I wore them and they are quite comfortable.
Best Uses:
The pockets are best when I am getting ready to go for a ride and have a lot in my hands to juggle before I put them in my read jersey pockets or seat bag (like keys or ID/cash). Often, I have to drive to first to get to my club's ride starting location, so the pocket's on my rear jersey are not the place to stash items while driving as they will be pains in the lower back or perhaps break my sunglasses. And, they are great for the times when I have to take off a jacket or layer of clothing when it warms up. Soft apparel goods are often hard to fit into small back jersey pockets. But in the big, stretchy mess short pockets, apparel layers are comfortable enough to keep stashed for the completion of a ride. These pockets are also great when I stop for a coffee or snack, making it easy to juggle my wallet, glasses, etc.

So Far, Very good
May 13, 2017
So far I have logged about 500 miles while wearing these shorts and am happy enough with them to have ordered two more pairs. I have a 34 waist (except around the holidays) and bought mediums. The fit is good. So far I would rate the pad as excellent. My longest ride to date was 56 miles over about 5 hours riding time (never said that I was fast) and they did their job well -- no saddle sores or hot spots. Because of back issues, I sit in a very upright position and I believe that this puts higher demands on the pad than a more leaned forward riding position which puts more of the rider's weight on the arms and shoulders. I have not yet used the mesh cargo pockets (mainly because I ride a touring bike with a handlebar bag) so I can't comment on their functionality. But overall the shorts are comfortable and appear to be well made. I have purchased other AeroTech riding apparel all of it well made and durable. I expect that the shorts will live up to my prior experience.
Pros:
Good fit Well Made Great pad
Cons:
Would love to see the same pad in a bib short

Comfortable on Long Rides
May 7, 2017
I used these shorts on 50-70 mile rides they are very comfortable and the mesh pockets are get for storing small items (e.g. wallets, leg warmers). I have 3 pair and use them all the time.
Pros:
Good padding and really like the mesh pockets
Cons:
They run a little big. I have purchased large and they are a little loose around the waist.

Like them so far.
May 5, 2017
I've only used them for two rides, and they weren't the long rides (60-150 miles) I want these shorts for, so I can't yet give them a full review. They do fit as advertised, they look nice—like other shorts if you don't use the pockets. You will look a little strange in pics if you fill the pockets, but cyclists look strange anyway, don't we? They were comfortable for the 30-40 miles rides I did, but the true test will be on the longer rides.
Pros:
BIG pockets. Much biker than another pair of shorts I own. With these short I can also do my TT training rides with any shirt I want and still be able to carry my essentials.
Cons:
The openings on the pockets are difficult to get into during a ride, because they are so high up on the shorts. But that is nitpicking, because they could carry as much if the pockets were smaller.
Best Uses:
I got these shorts to allow me to carry more stuff on long rides, like the Death Ride, where it can be 37 degrees in the morning and 90 in the afternoon. You need to dress warmly in the morning, but then you have the problem of how to carry the layers and arm warmers when you remove them. I'm hoping these shorts will give me more options.
