    Exactly what I needed! I am female, middle-aged, and have just gotten back into biking after about 15 years sitting on my backside in a comfy chair in front of a computer. I could well remember the pain experienced even with a padded seat in my younger years so I bought myself a ladies 26″ comfort cruiser that advertised a deluxe “Schwinn wide, padded cruiser saddle”. Well, this stock seat is wider at 10″ than most stock seats, but it certainly did not prevent pain. I began looking here on Amazon for something to relieve my aching posterior region.I bought myself a new padded 10″ wide saddle and these shorts. The shorts arrived very quickly and about two weeks ahead of the new saddle for some reason but I was very glad that something arrived to help me as I just couldn’t face another day riding my bike as it was. The shorts did not disappoint me at all – they were exactly what I had hoped for and needed!I generally ride an average of about 5-6 miles and I could tell a huge difference for…

    work well, great price I started biking on weekends 4 months ago. I’m up to 30 mile rides per day and moved from a mountain bike to a road bike. I needed something to help pad my sensitive areas. These work great and are reasonably priced, too. I noticed a few other reviewers commenting on the quality of the sewing, but I’ve had no issue with these at all. I wash them on “hand wash” setting in cold water, with woolite in my washing machine. Then I hang them to dry and they are ready for me the next weekend. These classic shorts took about 3 rides before I felt they were “broken in” to my body, but maybe that was just me getting used to these since it’s my first time with them. I liked them that I ordered a second pair in the royal blue. But beware- if you sweat a lot the lighter colors dont really hide the sweat. So after wearing the royal blue for 30 mile ride it looks like I peed myself! hahaha.. not a big deal if you’re not planning on getting off the bike until you get back home or to your…

    Save your $5! At first, I was excited about ordering these padded shorts; they are made in the US. However, when the shorts arrived I tried them on (w/ underwear on) and was disappointed with this product. I feel as if they are inferior to other padded shorts that I bought. I did not like how the waistband went past my belly button, it kind of felt awkward. The legs felt fine but there are no grippers which could have the material ride up. Although, there could be a pro to that for some people. I know from experience that leg grippers leave marks and indents from long rides (+ 2 hours.) The part that I am most unsatisfied with is the chamois pad. You can see and feel the pad bunches up. When I was sitting on my bike I could feel the pad fold. The picture of the chamois looks nothing like the actual chamois which fooled me. I didn’t want to chance not being happy with these shorts so I returned it. Save your time and 5 dollars from returning this shorts and buy other shorts (I recommend Baleaf and…
