To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are my go to biking shorts. The padding is excellent and the fit is extremely snug(the way I prefer it). My only complaint about these would be that they become transparent in rain. You can see almost everything through these, much to the chagrin of my riding buddies. I've used these daily for the past 3 months. With the constant washing, the padding has lost some of its rigidity but it is still effective.
I'm 6'1.5, muscular built. I ordered the 3XL size and it fit well. This is my first pair of cycling shorts so I do not know if the padding should be better, but this doesn't seem like the most comfortable in terms of extra padding. However, this is the best you can get for the price!
I found these to be comfortable and well padded. I was disappointed in other brands made for women that I ordered. They were too small and not as well padded as these. My husband had purchased a pair of the Sponeed bicycle shorts. He has been please with them. I tried on his before I ordered a pair for me. I know these are made for men, but they work fine for women, too. I recommend ordering a larger size than you would normally order. The fabric is nice quality.
