I love these shorts. They have the Airgel Chamois in, which in itself is a miracle chamois. If you haven't read about it, to to Louis Garneau's website and check it out. It really does prove that not all chamois are created equal. Love the fabric, soft and smooth, not scratchy. I also love that they don't bind my quad muscle with an elastic band. Absolutely the best! I will buy these forever.
