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.

Comfortable Gravel Grinder Shorts
September 28, 2016
The shorts proved more comfortable than some others on a longer gravel ride on a trail known for a high level of vibration. Fit and finish are as expected for the price point
Pros:
Good vibration dampening Good fit

Whats not to like? These are sweet shorts!!!
September 28, 2016
These things are super comfortable!!! and the pockets are an amazing idea, why didn't these come out 10 years ago? I can strap my pump to my bike, stuff an inner tube and tire tool in one pocket and my cell phone in the other. I get to leave my camelbak at home :) Might I suggest adding more colors, I would rock some pink, purple or camo pattern ones! Also if you could make long tights with these pockets that would be amazing! So far I have used these on several road rides, and a couple mountain bike rides. I am very happy with my purchase. As for sizing the mediums fit me fine with a 34-35" waist at 5'8" and over 200lbs.
Pros:
Pockets Super comfortable Color options
Cons:
Drawstring, its livable and not uncomfortable but I feel like it takes a few tries to tie it. No pink, neon green or purple option.
Best Uses:
Town rides Road rides Mountain bike rides

Great Shorts
September 27, 2016
I bought a pair for myself and one for my significant other. It fit her just fine other than the extra space in front! You can definitely fit a lot in the pockets. You also don't really feel the items in the mesh pocket intruding on your ride. As others have mentioned, it can get warm. The items in the mesh pocket can get sweaty.

Perfect Shorts and Customer Service
September 17, 2016
I bought my shorts last August and did not have chance to use them until last week. I used them on a 70km ride under 50 C degrees. It was a perfect fit with nice cooling. Especially pad was fantastiv. After 2 hours ride, I did not feel any pain. Also Aero Tech mesh Pockets saves a lot of space for my protein. Additionally, thank you so much for great customer support. Now my Bibs are on its way and can not wait to wear them on my first ride.
Pros:
great product and great price. Fits perfect. Mesh pockets are so smart
Cons:
none to mention
Best Uses:
Long rides

Great for long rides, great looks, great pockets
September 5, 2016
I bought my first pair (yellow version) last August for a Sept. century ride and wore it also in October on a fully loaded, 350-mile 7-day ride on the GAP/C&O Towpath, PIttsburgh to DC. The most comfortable shorts I've worn, and definitely the best for touring. The large mesh pockets are very useful, and I like the colored waist and thigh panels.. I just bought the gray accents version to ride in the same century in a week and will take both on a bike tour in Europe in two weeks.
Pros:
see above
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
Touring or any long ride -- fine for short ones, too, of course

best I've owned
August 26, 2016
Right out of the box these are by far the most comfortable shorts I've owned. I have bontrager Mavic and LG shorts all similar priced and these are the best of them all. If they hold up as well as they feel then they're a no brainer. I ride with people who have paid double or triple what I gave for these and they don't brag about their shorts the way I do.
Pros:
Awesome pad good construction
Cons:
A little smaller than my other shorts same size
Best Uses:
Mountain biking gravel biking

GREAT SHORTS!!
August 24, 2016
Have two pair of these shorts and love them. Much better than previous shorts from different manufacturer. Old ones left me feeling like sitting on an ax blade at end of 26 mile ride. Wore these the first time and had no major pain - including now on 33+ mile rides. Fit is perfect (Medium). Have difficulties with shoulders and reaching around for pockets on backs of shirts so having the pockets on the sides of the shorts is great. With them being full-length, I can stuff things down by my knees that I'm not going to get out often and then tuck the things that I'm going to pull out frequently up by the top for easy access. The upper stuff doesn't slip/slide toward the knees before getting on or at stops.
Pros:
POCKETS!! Excellent cushion. Great fit. Good color choices.
Cons:
Can't think of any.

Awesome !!
August 15, 2016
Did my first 100 mile ride with these....no issues at all. These are great for long rides for me. like the fit, they didnt ride up at all, like the idea of the mesh pockets, they are there if you need them but do not interfere with your ride if you dont, in fact I forgot they were there really. I will be getting another pair soon . (or two)
Pros:
Fit , comfort on long rides , USA made
Cons:
My be a bit on the warm side in hot weather
Best Uses:
Cycling

Love the shorts except the chamois positioning
August 9, 2016
I like the looks, pockets, drawstring, and love that they are made in america. I personally have a problem with the chamois positioning. I am tall (6'2") & skinny (155lbs) with a 33"waist and 34" inseam, the mediums are good/not tight. In my opinion the chamois is to far forward in these shorts. My "sit" bones rest on the very back edge of the chamois if I just slip them on. After riding for some time and hopping on and off the bike I find that the chamois tends to pull forward even more, and it happens slowly until I am pretty much off of it and end up with rubbing. I can easily confirm this when I get home and look in the mirror, there is nice imprint of the chamois and just behind it are red dots where my sit bones have rubbed. That being said, I still prefer these shorts, I just have to make sure that am conscious of it and purposely pull the padding back a little after breaks. If the chamois was moved back about an inch in the mediums I will be perfectly happy and give 10 stars.
Pros:
solid construction, pockets, made in america
Cons:
chamois positioning doesn't work great for me
Best Uses:
Touring, Long rides

First time I only bought one and us the same pair every day I cycle. Hand wash when I'm done cycling each day. Then hang dry the shorts.
Pros:
No Heat Sores, Comfortable Pockets Long Rides Year Round wear
Cons:
None that I have noticed

Nicely padded
June 21, 2016
I have 2 other Aerotech shorts and thought I would try these because I need better padding for longer rides. So far I've only ridden with this pair on a 54 mile ride and they performed better than my other Aerotech shorts but I can't say how well they will do for a century ride, yet. The sizing seems a bit on the small side. I'm comfortable in a medium with the other shorts I have. These in medium are tight. Overall these are nicely padded shorts at a reasonable price.

My best pants
June 21, 2016
I have 5 other pair of pants by other manufacturers. These fit me very well. The draw sting at the waist will be nice if I loose some waist line. The padding seemed s bit much at first but after 30 miles and 2000 ft of vertical, my bottom is not sore. The side pockets are stretch mesh and do work Mell at holding small items.

Why have I not worn these before?
June 21, 2016
Great fit and I am most appreciative for the padding. These are just as described. AeroTech is a great company to deal with no matter the issue, they stand behind their products. These shorts are very comfortable and have made a big difference for me in the long rides especially! Buy them. You'll be glad you did.

Great Padded Shorts
May 24, 2016
I am about to order my third pair of these padded shorts. The mesh pockets make it convenient to carry my Fitbit when I ride and put my GPS tracker in my pocket after I dismount. I don't always wear riding jerseys out on training rides and the pockets come in handy. The gel pad is very comfortable even on long rides and I am big guy. I am upgrading all my riding shorts to these now. Thumbs up!

Great touring shorts
April 23, 2016
Tested these shorts during spin bike sessions. They felt very comfortable, perhaps due to greater thickness of padding. The pockets come handy for various items, incl. camera, lip balm, snacks, etc. Strongly recommended these to my biking buddies.
Pros:
Convenient stretchy pockets and thick padding sex-specific.
Cons:
None at this point.
Best Uses:
Long rides and while touring
