Comfortable shorts for the cycling Clydesdale
I picked these shorts up based on the reviews. The shorts fit my 6-2 , 300 plus frame. I have completed approx. 250 miles of (25-40 mile) rides. They fit well, wear well, wash well so far. I am a little disappointed at the decrease in comfort during the 35 plus rides. I'm thinking that the Gel may need to be broken in especially since I purchased approx. 4 weeks ago. I also have to take into consideration my frame. With my size I'm sure there isn't a silver bullet that would feel like I'm cycling on clouds. Overall I am satisfied with the purchase and will be looking to purchase another pair within the next few weeks. I have found myself ordering from Aerotech each of the last 3 years. I love the styles and selections they have for the Clydesdale Cyclist. I have never had an issue with any of my orders and to date everything I have purchased fits , wears and washes well. This has become my Go To site for me.
ProsFits, wear and washes well. Very durable clothing. Great buy for the price

Does the job
My husband likes them, and as long add I don't hear complaints, it's 5 star. I know they didn't work well for an indoor exercise bike, but those have different shape seats

Not Lycra
The material is mesh with very little stretch. Not very comfortable.

Great padding
I purchased these because I was getting sore sit bones after a few miles. I spoke with their tech in customer service and he described their different pads. I opted for these because of the pad thickness and it being a gel pad. These are a big difference over my previous aero tech shorts with the non gel pad. Only reason for not giving 5 stars is the shorts don't have flat seams and not quite the cut of their more expensive shorts. He explained that to me so I knew what I was getting. Now I wish I could get this pad in the higher end shorts.
ProsGood pad. Light weight material. Low price.
ConsNo flat seams. Not as many panels as their other shorts
Best UsesRoad bike

Gel
I have always preferred the traditional padded shorts, but decided to tryout the gel, as I'm riding a lot more miles. Way more comfortable on the butt, I was expecting to get more chaffing with the gel, but to my surprise none of that has happened so that's a huge plus. And at the price you can't go wrong.
ProsGel pad is Awesome compared to traditional padding.
ConsNot enough frontal cover.

Enough padding for a big guy...
I am 6'4 and 240 and I bought both the "Lightweight Pad 8 Panels" shorts and these and ended up returning the lightweight and getting another of the 6 panel gel shorts. I have tried 3 different biking shorts and this one is the best. I now have two pairs so I can ride multiple days without a ton of laundry. Highly recommended for big guys.

Pad is really thick, but doesn't seem to be a problem.
I ride a lot, usually wearing shorts with a fairly thin gel or fake chamois pad. I didn't expect these to have such a THICK pad. I thought about returning them for something else, but decided to give them a try. I frequently do 40-60 mile rides, with a few centuries thrown in. I haven't felt a lot of discomfort before but decided some extra padding might help on the long rides. Today I used the shorts on a quick 18 mi lunch ride. The pad feels thick when you put the shorts on. Too thick. Not necessarily uncomfortable, but awkward. Made me self-conscious. Yes, I get the irony there. Anyway, once I got on the bike the padding felt fine. Definitely more than I'm used to, but not at all uncomfortable. After the first mile or so I forgot all about it. Had a great ride and didn't feel any resistance or bunching while pedaling. Overall, I am satisfied with these. Materials and construction are great and they feel like they will last. Fit was right in line with my other shorts. I would probably go with a thinner pad in the future, but maybe that opinion will change after a long ride.
ProsThick padding. Good materials and construction.
ConsThick padding.

Does not feel like gel
The shorts are comfortable and they are padded, but the padding does not feel like a true gel, it feels more like open cell foam. If you pinch the material between your fingers, you can feel you fingertips. It takes very little effort to completely compress the material to the point where there is basically no padding at all. A true gel material will not do this. You have to pinch it very hard to displace the gel material and that will usually cause it to tear internally. They are, however, comfortable and functional, just not the type of gel I was expecting.

I have just recently taken up riding. I enjoy the shorts because I can ride farther while wearing them because the padding makes it more comfortable.

Cycling Shorts
I like the thick pad , helps not getting sore as much. The fit is okay , i would get a size smaller next time, For the price its a great buy. Easy to wash. I did ask a lot of question before my purchase and got a lot of info regarding all the different kind of shorts. I picked this one for a. the great price and b. the thickness of the pad.

My first pair of bike shorts
OK, so I admit I have nothing to compare with, but I really like these shorts. The padding is thick and they are comfortable. I am a big guy 3XL, and since i got them I have been able to increase my riding time without too much discomfort "down there".
ProsGood fit. thick padding for "down there" comfort.
