Comfortable with a GREAT chamois

I should point out first that the Amethyst is definitely more purple than the photo leads on. A nice royal purple, nothing crazy. The first thing you might notice when you put these on (if you bought the right size) is how comfortable the liner is. Sugoi uses a quality chamois that protects and doesn't feel like a piece of wool between your legs. The liner fabric also breathes really well and doesn't feel like an extra layer under the shorts. The cut of the shorts is flattering and not overly baggy. They have a relaxed cut to them without being overly generous. The bottom hem sits right above my knee, so I don't look I am wearing man shorts or too much like a puritan. I am 5'9", 135 lbs and the medium fits with just a touch of extra room (which I prefer). I love these shorts so much I might just buy a pair in black. Well worth the money and great for commuting or mountain biking in.
