I wish the pad was thicker. Overall a good short. And long enough for my legs. I like it that u carry plus sizes! Very helpful. Us "thicker" people like to excercise too

Amer. Sizing, good for 70 miles so far...
I am F 5'7" 130-135 lbs, I don't like tight clothing but it obviously has to be snug. With Louis Garneau I wear XL so I ordered L...too big. Med fit much better though not tight. I could probably get S but don't like tight waist. So, sizing is close to American sizing. I wear size 6 usually. Performance is good. Did 70 miles on Sun. and was only starting to be aware of my seat by the end.

Best pair of Biking Shorts I have ever owned
I like that they do not ride up and keep me dry while riding. Very comfortable fit.

They are ok
Overall I like them except for the front doesn't come up to my waist like the other padded shorts I bought here. It always feels like they are falling off but aren't, just not made high enough in front. Padding is good.

Not as impressed for the price and reviews.
Padding not that thick as anticipated. That's why I bought it to have a REALLY THICK pad. I had to buy gel pad for bike seat for added comfort. I bike only about a full hour. Washed gently in cold water, mild detergent and hung to dry. Still mild shrinkage problem. Just wasn't as impressed after I had researched the ratings.

Plus size happy
Normally 18 Plus size demin pant. Liked these a lot. Fits well, doesn't roll up Lands mid- thigh on shorter end of 5'5 woman. My only wish would be for more padding up the back/spine.. But, I am a newbie on this.

Century cycling short
The pad is super thick-concerned may be too much, but leg elastic is not binding, shorts flattering overall for XL, runs true to size or a little bigger

Not for me
I wore them once and found the material and pad uncomfortable. I wear a size 18w in clothes but found that I did not like the material at all and after washing them twice they were not a true black and the pad bunched up because the material was too soft and stretchy. I washed them twice and both times the water turned red not black. I wanted to live be them!
ConsNot enough elasticity in fabric causing pad to bunch up

exactly what it says it is...
I ride centuries and events ( the BCM Lobster Ride & Trek Across Maine, for example) and my previous bike shorts (Pearl Izumi) were getting very worn. I have an old Aero Tech bike jersey with a flamingo on it and loved it, so I thought I would give their bike shorts a try...........nice feel, nice fit and the padding, which might be a bit much for a younger rider, (I'm 60+) is fantastic! First time out, I rode and wore them 6 hours with perfect comfort! I will definitely be ordering another pair soon!

Really pleased with the fit of these shorts. Have worn them cycling a number of times and it really makes a difference to the quality of my rides. Thanks for making plus sizes that fit. I actually wear them under my jeans and no one can tell that I am wearing them.

Was very pleased with the fit and feeling of this pair of biking shorts. Still a bit tight on legs but not uncomfortable. Almost wish just a touch more padding through crotch area.

Most comfortable bike shorts ever
So training for a half IM is starting to wear on all my nerves. But mostly those of my rear end. So I ordered these shorts. And well, Hallelujah. They are super comfortable, they don't chafe, they don't ride up in the legs, they don't bunch in the seat, the waistband stays exactly where it's supposed to be and not rolled over in a knot. And well the seat pad... yeah oh yeaaaah. It's glorious. I'm up to 25+ miles and no complaints. I've worn them in warm weather (70's) and cold weather (50's) and they were good in both temperatures. These pants are fantastic. Really.
ProsFit. Seat padding. Leg length. Waistband.

Love these shorts!
These shorts fit me perfectly and the pad is the perfect thickness, not so thick it looks ridiculous when walking. Similar to the Pearl Izumi Quest pad, but the waist on those shorts rolls down. This longer waist is perfect, does not roll down, the legs have ample room, the rubber grips are not uncomfortable. They also run true to American sizes. I returned the Xl for a large which fits perfectly (Amazon also has these on Prime, same price with free returns, wish I'd seen that earlier). I am 5'4", 166 lbs with a slightly thicker waist than fanny. I've tried Pearl Izumi, Belroy, Sheebeast and another, these are the best!

So very comfy
Not only is the pad great for long rides, but material is different from any other short I've owned; it's delightfully soft. They are my favorites by far.
Best UsesAll-day rides

The fit/design is good. The chamois does the job. The only negative for me is the length. I prefer a shorter leg length.
ConsLeg length is too long for me.

These fit great. I only wish the band of elastic in the leg was a bit wider and tighter. Hope they are as advertised because my first century ride is approaching..

good value shorts
Normally, I buy higher priced shorts with thicker padding, but having outgrown my existing supply (oops!), I tried this short. So far, so good. They are comfortable, not "see-through" but perhaps the pad does not fit perfectly. Pad fit is highly personal as everyone knows.

Thick padded bike short
If you are riding 20 plus miles, these thick padded bike shorts do the job.

Great for touring
I bought these shorts just before 9 days of TransAm touring. Cycling anywhere from 6-10 hours a day. Fit was great and helped keep my backside from being too awful sore!
August 18, 2016
Very comfortable. Supportive but not restrictive. I don't know I have them on. Bought them to relieve sitz bone discomfort and the pad has really helped on 40 mi rides.

great to have new shorts with elastic that works

Help for fatigued sits bones
I bought these shorts because I needed to find a way to be able to ride more than 60 miles without my sits bones screaming at me. I know others ride 100-200 miles at a time, so what made a difference? I read than chamois can make a big difference. I looked for high density foam shorts for more comfort. I found these. I have not tried them yet on a ride longer than 52 miles, but I had no fatigue at 52 miles! That has never happened before. So I am hopeful.
ProsChamois padding is a higher density foam that really helps relieve fatigue on long rides. Fabric is thin and moisture wicking.
ConsThe stitching was a little stratchy and the leg band was a little stratchy too.
Best UsesLong road bike rides.

I wear XL in all other riding shorts I own so ordered XL in these. Legs are too long and loose. I have to pull them up to keep them from rubbing on my calves.But if I had ordered lg the waist would have been too tight. Padding isnt bad tho.

Quality compressive fabric. Chamios pad placement is anatomically correct.
The fabric (XXL) seems to be of good, compressive quality. The chamois is properly placed for cushioned comfort on the saddle. Just short rides so far with okay, not over-the-top, comfort. For longer rides, I still find a second chamois cushion provides relief from "saddle-pressure-injury/soreness" to the female parts. Otherwise, well-made, true-to-size cycling shorts.
ProsCompression Pad placement/shape Quality fabric Excellent, supportive fit
Best UsesMedium-length rides. Fitness cycling/Spinning

I've only had a chance to wear them on a 50km cold weather ride. They seem comfortable enough. I was expecting the pad to have been sized up more. Comparing it to an old pair of Pearl Izumis, the pad size seemed quite similar. Great price and quick shipping to Canada.
