The suspenders are perfect. High cut gives a lot of compression. gripper on back keeps jersey down. This is my favorite chamois. I have the FS260's and love them except the suspenders have bindings which I don't like. These are the ones that I could get the lazer cut suspenders with the best chamois which has gel inserts. They are very comfortable, and blow away the chamois that comes in the Endura Pro's. I actually have to wear padded Endura liner shorts under those to get enough padding. These Reiver shorts have great leg compression as well and the silicone at the end of the legs keeps them down. They're not super breathable, so I'll use them less in the summer.
Straps, Compression, Padding, Leg Grippers are all perfect. The pockets on the legs are sturdy. The pockets on the back are smaller and useful for small items. My emergency cell phone fits well in the center back pocket.
