Great value
We don't bike often, but we do a few long rides each year, so a padded bike short is good for those rides. This basic bike short is perfect for my husband and a great value.

Disappointed
I purchased these after reading reviews for the product. I have worn the shorts twice, on concurrent days for short rides less than 20 miles each. My butt was a bit sore after the first ride but seemed better the next day. However, my second ride was extremely uncomfortable. I have not tried out the next higher price shorts, yet, but I would not recommend these shorts for a $15 savings over the next higher priced product.

Great Product for any cyclist
Aero Tech's Men's cycling shorts met and exceeded all of my expectations. They fit well, wear well and do the job. These shorts are padded correctly to ensure comfort when cycling. They are also very easy to maintain and launder. Beyond the quality of the product itself which is first rate, Aero Tech's policy on return makes it clear that they are in business to forward the biking interests of both the novice and pro. Also, I would note that their customer service staff are professional, reasonable and interested in making sure the customer is really fully satisfied. I would highly recommend the item I purchased as well as other items. In the end, you are getting real quality for your money from a company that knows what is most important - the customer.

Not bad for Super Sale Shorts
I'm in search of bike shorts with a VERY thin chamois. These are listed as 6mm, with the only thinner shorts being their tri-shorts.
These were pretty OK for thinness. I would have liked thinner, but these seem thick to me for a thin chamois.
The chamois seems a little bit rough, so I'm hoping after a dozen or so washings things soften a bit.
All the materials seem to be of good quality (especially at $20!). The short material seems pretty good, and the leg gripper is sufficiently grippy. If too grippy for you, then just roll the grippy bit out, and you can sport the baby blue grip strip to your cycling mates.
Sizing based on the waist worked well for me.

Aero Tech Cycling Shorts
Item fits well and is very comfortable, however, I wish the padding was removable for laundering. Being that I am not sure how the pads will hold up to my driers heat cycle (harden or distort shape) I have been machine washing and letting them air dry.

Ok pair of shorts
These are ok. I think the padding could be better and the fit could be better. Could just be me. The leg openings around the bottom are not as tight as I think they should be.

I got one of the Basic Shorts last year. They are a good fit, comfortable, have held up well, and made in USA! How can you beat that? They did with sail and free shipping. I now have 4 of them.

Great Quality Shorts at a Fantastic Price
I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered these. They were the least expensive shorts and I wanted something I could wear under other shorts until I lost some weight. Much to.ky surprise these are some of the nicest cycling shorts I've owned. Thick padding, high quality material and good elastic on the legs and waist. I'll be ordering more.

I've only been riding for a few months but am logging 100+ miles per week. These shorts are the first padded shorts I've purchased and they certainly make riding more comfortable.

For the price excellent
I have been using these bike shorts now for six months and they are very very good compared to some shorts I have bought in the past that cost twice as much, they actually feel better on long rides even hot long rides, I would recommend these to everyone, and very glad to see they are made in the USA, see we can made quality at a reasonable price!! I wear size 34 waist and I bought lg. which was recommended 32 to 34 waist fit perfect.

Great shorts for the price
They fit nicely and are comfortable - again, for the price. You can definitely tell the material is cheaper than the typical Aerotech short - but - they're much cheaper. A good pair of "my other two pairs are already dirty" shorts. I have not done distance stuff yet so I can't speak to their comfort over more than 30 miles or so.

Large size bike shorts
Large size bike shorts it's hard to frying big bike shorts anything over 3X so it was good to be in the final 4X which sit really really comfortable and good .

Not bad
The pricing and sizing are great on this product. I've only rode them a few times and they seem to be made well. The con for me is the padding in the seat. Any rides over 50 and I really notice the lack of padding. This was probably my own fault for going for the cheapest product available (what can I say? I'm cheap :-)) These would be great shorts for shorter rides.

A great basic pair of bike shorts
I have come to expect nothing but the best from Aerotech. I have 2 other pair of their shorts, both a little higher end. So, when I saw a great deal on these, I figured I couldn't lose. I was right. I like their higher end shorts slightly better but they are still superior to any other brand shorts I've tried. You can't go wrong with these or any product from AT

Best Value-Priced Shorts I've Tried
Of the several sub-$30 shorts I've tried, thees are by far the best. The chamois isn't too thick and bulky like on most cheaper shorts, the leg grippers are comfortable, the fabric is soft and suitably stretchy. The only drawback is that they're on the thin side fabric-wise, but I always wear them under shorts or pants, so it's not too big an issue for me. I followed ATD's sizing chart, and they fit perfect.
