I absolutely love these shorts! They are fantastic! The padding is thick enough to where my behind still felt great even after 3 1/2 hours in the saddle. These are definitely Century Ride approved.
I really like the length of the inseam. I prefer my cycling shorts to hit me mid-thigh which this one does.
The material is thicker than some other shorts I have, so they are not see-through at all. I sometimes worry about the sheer factor on my shorts.
The chamois seemed a bit thick on my first ride, but after riding in them a few times, it seems to conform more to my body.
