The Top Shelf Chamois pad has an excellent fit which is impossible with one piece pads. The surface of the chamois is an antibacterial, microfine brushed polyester fabric that wicks the perspiration away from the chamois area to keep you dry and comfortable on long rides.  You will appreciate the great fit of the Top Shelf Chamois pad, a fit you can't get with a seamless construction.  Like a baseball, the chamois pad has seams cut with curves to fully and efficiently wrap all the curves between the legs.  The crotch area has three severe curves, the torso and two thighs which all have a steep curvature. To maximize the fit, it would be impossible to fit all these curves with a single flat piece of fabric.  To effectively protect this area, the top shelf chamois padding is assembled by sewing curved wings onto the primary pad area, this creates an excellent fit that maximizes protection and saddle sore prevention.top shelf bike short chamois pad

Great pair of bike shorts

I am short and stocky but these shorts fit perfectly. The chamois is great padding without being bulky. I cycle on a trail as well as asphalt and the bike shorts are comfortable for rides about 30 miles in length.
Pros:
Fit well, chamois comfortable.

Good shorts but leg binding is tight
April 25, 2016
I wore these for the first time this weekend and rode 50 miles. The season is just starting so I'm not in shape for biking but I am in good physical condition from snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hiking. As soon as I put the shorts on I thought the band at the bottom of the legs was tighter than I like. I'm 54 years old so I no longer have teenager thighs but I also don't have thunder thighs. As far as the rest of the shorts went they were very comfortable and the pad felt good. I also got a pair of shorts from another company and ATD's padding won hands down. I will buy more of these because of the pad but I'm guessing I will cut the binding at the bottom. It would be awesome if they would make the identical shorts but with a 2" lycra type band for those of us who don't have chicken legs.
Pros:
good padding in shorts
Cons:
elastic band at bottom too tight
Best Uses:
short or long distance

My favorite thing about these shorts (besides the fact that they??re comfortable fit well etc) is that they??re a little shorter than ATD??s regular shorts yet still provide covering. As an older (56) less-than-perfect-shape (cough cough) tour rider there??s nothing worse than having to wear granny shorts to keep from scaring small dogs and little kids. These shorts keep the flab in without

I've only worn them once (indoors on the trainer) since they're summer shorts and it's still snowy here! They were very comfortable and washed well. Assuming they hold up under many wearings/washings I have only one complaint: They are too big in the waist. I needed a size Extra Large for my hips and thighs but I had to sew a tuck in the waist to make them fit. Otherwise they're excellent

These were nice bike shorts however they could use more padding. I have yet to find bike short with enough padding for me but then I have a price point I am willing to spend. Maybe the more expensive shorts have better padding. However they are more padded than others I have purchased.

These shorts are great so far but I've only used them for short (25 mile) rides due to very hot weather. Looking forward to trying them on a 50 mile but probably wouldn't work for me on a century. Comfortable and flattering good waist (not too low) and leg (not too long) fit.

Good shorts but didn't like the padding
February 24, 2015
These seem to be well made bike shorts. I of course didn't wear them before returning them as I didn't like the extra seam that was around the blue padding. There was a secondary pad under the blue pad that had seams that hit right in the crease of my leg and body. It looked like that would cause major chafing on long rides. Otherwise the shorts looked great but I didn't want to wear them and t
