Use for cycling, 3-75 miles ride. They have the right amount of cushioning without feeling very bulky. The length is perfect, comes to mid thigh (I'm 5' 1 tall). The material really wicks moisture away from you. Just the right amount of compression. If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up.
I've been very pleased with these riding shorts. I've had a difficult time finding any comfort on the saddle. I've changed saddles several times. I've changed shorts several times. I've been professionally fit on my bicycle. It has been a real struggle to find some level of tolerable comfort while riding. These shorts did the trick. I'm going to order more of these so I can get rid of all my others. They make a huge difference and I love them.
