Disappointed
Back edge of pad barely reaches the sit bones, with lots of padding where unneeded. Return policy is more restricted than that of larger outdoors companies.

Awesome liner shorts
This is my second pair of liner shorts. Great fit and padding. My first pair were my go-to ones. I decided to backfill my others with Aerotech shorts. I love the way the material fits snug but doesn't cut into my skin. I will continue to get my liner shorts from Aerotech. Good job guys.

Good Product
These are comfortable, and the fit is good. The only negative issue I have with them is that the gel padding is a little high in the front for my taste, and gets a little "warm" for me even in the cooler weather. I'd prefer that it be a lower rise and perhaps even shifted back a bit higher on the but. Having said that, I like the shorts and wear them regularly. They do their job well providing a comfortable long ride.

Great customer service
I give them a 5 star because of their great customer service. When I buy something on line I need to know that the seller is going to stand behind my purchase 110%. They do!!!. The products they sell are great and I have bought several. Great quality. Some shorts I fit into a large, some an XL. That's where the great customer service comes into play. Great customer service, great quality. You can't go wrong. Larry

Best riding shorts
I bought 2 of these for my adult children after getting a pair for myself a couple of months ago. We ride hard. We ride aggressively on whatever trail we find ourselves on. These shorts do the job. And we get whatever baggy outer shorts we prefer. Treat yourself, get a pair.

Just Right
I' quite pleased with this product. It's well made and durable. It fits like a glove and dries fast after washing. The padding is even and comfortable. I should get a lot of miles out of these padded liners... underwear... a great value for the price.
ProsGreat padding. Comfortable fit.
Best UsesFat Tire. Mid Fat. Mountain Bike. All good so far.

Perfect quality fit and comfort except the padding comes up too high in front making them too hot!
I'm 5'10 175lbs so I bought medium Aero Tech Elite Air Gel Padded Cycling Underwear but they are really full on bike shorts. Best padded shorts i've found so far but my only complaint riding 25 - 50 - 80 miles a day on weekends, 2500 to 3000 miles a year, here in Miami is that the foam padding comes up in front halfway to my belly button making my "boys" too hot and sweaty. the padding does nothing up there so it should be ended, at least for men, 4" -5" lower The elastic on the bottom of the legs was also a bit too tight but once i cut the underlying white elastic bands in half at both ends next to the seams they stopped cutting into me. They are still are grippy enough thanks to the fabric to stay down and the fabric has not unraveled in our washer after making small slits avoiding the seams.
ProsGreat on the Bum! Fixed the pressure points on my bum causing a feeling like i was getting bone spurs and killing my riding experience, the shorts and the excellent Terry Men's Liberator Y Gel Bicycle Saddle I bought here fixed the problem.
ConsToo hot in the crotch!

Appear to be good workable liners
Got a pair of these to replace some Pearl Izumi liners that were starting to give me saddle sores on longer rides. Haven't done any real long rides yet, but some moderate length mtn bike rides are showing them to be comfortable. They do not breathe as well as the Pearl Izumis', but the extra padding is noticeable and is working well for the distances covered so far. If they continue to work well I may consider upping to a 4 star, but for the time being they appear to be a workable liner at a decent price. I am using one of the harder Specialized body geometry saddles which gives good sit bone support and keeps pressure off the prostate, but has definitely been painful on longer rides. So far the Aerotechs have worked well on it. I did get a size smaller than normal, and it is a little snug but is so far working well. Order arrived quickly. For the price I would say they are worth trying.

Pearl Izumi Replacement
I have been riding with the PI integrated shorts/cycling underwear. I felt the PI liner was always a bit lacking, but I had returned to riding after a lengthy absence, I was unsure. These cycling underwear did make a difference. I just cut the existing underwear from the PI shorts and wore these. There was a difference. Hopefully they will hold up to multiple washes.
ProsSize was as expected - thank you
Consnone so far
Best UsesReplacing the integrated cycling underwear that comes with casual/mtb shorts.

Good quality - Order a size smaller
Conflicting reviews on size. I ordered an XL based on the reviews I read and while they fit great in the waist the gel pad was loose and baggy in the seat. I could not possibly have been comfortable with that flopping around anytime I was out of the saddle. I ordered a L and it fits great in the seat, but I preferred the XL in the waist. It's very elastic, so it's not "too" tight. It's hard to get one
Prosvery comfortable, seem to be well made
Conssizing is weird, disconnect between the waist size and seat (for my body anyway)
Best UsesMountain biking - the material is too thin to wear without overshorts...unless you're "that" guy...

Very disappointed. Like wearing sandpaper, chamois too far forward in liner.
Purchased these for longer rides, as the thicker chamois looked like it would help. I have been riding for a little over a year, and have been limited to rides of about an hour due to pressure from the saddle. I am about 230 pounds, and have been using simple, thinner padding liners from Trayl. The Trayl liners do not provide enough padding, but are great for wicking moisture and not chaffing. I have never had to use chamois cream or other lubricant with the Trayls, so assumed I could do the same with the Aero Techs. I purchased the Elite Air Gel Aero Tech liners and used them on a 21 mile ride at about 80 degrees. It was apparent after 45 minutes that the liners were not going to be comfortable, as they starting chaffing a lot. This was due to the material of the chamois that is against the skin, it is hot and it is very rough. In addition, the gel pads that are supposed to protect your sit bones are too far forward, as the chamois goes up way past my package in the front and it short in the back. I have a 40 inch waist and ordered the XXL size, so know that they were the correct liners for my size. Given that I spent $60 for these, would have expected them to be of higher quality and comfort.
ProsThe padding is great for preventing numbness and pain from saddle, however surface of chamois does not allow this to work for a long ride.
ConsHot, rough, chamois located too far forward in liner leaving sit bones just barely covered.
Best UsesMight be OK for winter riding, too hot and rough for summer. Have not tried these with chamois cream, but not sure I want to try it again after the chaffing I endured on my first ride.

Awsome comfort for the long ride.
These liner shorts are the most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. No more discomfort or soreness during or after a long ride. I got a size smaller than I normally wear & the fit was great. I started bragging about them & my buddy bought a pair. It's great that they are made right here in the USA. Thanks for a great product ... well worth the price.

ConsGlad I ordered one size smaller than I normally wear

They are comfy but do run large
I am 6'5" and wear a 44" waist on my jeans. I purchased the XXL and they are perfect, so basically, they do run a little larger than you'd expect. My old XXL shorts from Nash are just a bit snug now, so I was thinking of ordering XXXL but glad I read the reviews first. Have only ridden once but like them so far.

All Gain--No More Pain
Wore my Elite Air Gel padded underwear for the first time today and wish I had purchased them years ago. Finally no pinching between my legs. I did 37 miles with no bunching or pinching. The higher quality padding was very noticeable. I am beyond happy with these bike undies. I'm a large guy, and originally purchased the 1 size smaller than I usually wear, as was recommended by other reviewers, but I actually returned that pair and went with 2 sizes smaller than what was indicated by the sizing chart and this pair fits just the way I want. A great product.

I'm a tweener who hates things tight on him so I ordered a large. Turns out I'm definitely a medium with these shorts. Company was easy to deal with and exchange the product ASAP.

Very comfortable
Tried one pair and ordered another after a couple of weeks of riding. I ordered medium with my 32" waist and found these run a little large, but didn't want to chance too small. These can be worn as shorts as well as under shorts. Very comfortable with no bunching. Thank you.
ProsGood fit with no bunching.
ConsA little large.

Excellent product - a bit large
I just started riding again after taking a mere 40 years off. These seem to be very well made and the large pad is quite helpful. I do wear a Skins compression bike short which have a very thin pad over these and the combination works well. On sizing, I wear a large in compression shorts and tights but based on the size chart I ordered these in size medium. They are slightly large and do not provide as much compression as expected so if in doubt order a size down. The pad feels a little odd walking around but works very well riding.
ProsSeems like these would work very well for all types of riding. Design is comfortable in every position on the saddle. Made in Picksburg PA, USA!
ConsSeem to run slightly large but this may be intentional. The design notes say they are intended to be best fitted in the riding position and this certainly seems to be the case.
