    Comfortable but silly looking if you're fat

    Posted by Shawn on Jul 18th 2017

    I'm a fat guy. Wearing these really accentuates my gut -- which is really the last thing I want to accentuate. In general they are comfortable and a good fit. But if you're fat, you're better off looking for a liner that you can wear under regular shorts

    Very comfortable chamois

    Posted by Patrick on Oct 8th 2015

    This is my second model of cycling short from AeroTechDesigns; the initial model (ATD Big Man Pro Cycling Short - 8 Panel - Padded Bike Shorts) got too big because hey! I lost weight. :-)

    The fit is perfect, as expected, but the chamois is one of the main reasons for buying this model. I ride on an unpadded saddle, and being 300+ pounds, a well padded chamois is your friend.

    As a bonus these shorts and the coordinated jersey make me faster; I swear!!! OK, maybe they make me "look" faster, in my own mind...
