I guess there's a balance to be struck - and this doesn't manage it for me.

Cycle shorts - we all love 'em, right? Padded, sleek, looking a little bit like you're wearing a nappy (but we don't like to talk about that). But these, my friends, are a little different...
First off, they are SHORTS. SO short! Like Kylie's gold hot pants but with big padded inserts. You *will* look like a dodgy MAMIL if you wear these as outer wear in daylight, so don't. Ladies might have a different view of this - I'd like to get the alternative feedback.
Second, they are PADDED. SO padded. It's really quite solid actually, and not as soft or flexible as you might expect. It's not uncomfortable at first but it can get that way as the miles add up. If you have much natural padding (as it were) these will probably be too much extra support. Use on the worst of saddles, with the boniest of backsides and you'll be well away. It's a balance, see?
That's it I think? They are undershorts with a lot of padding. The fabric is very light and cool and they arrived promptly so if this sounds like your requirement then go for it.
