I actually bought these at my LBS, but want to throw in my 2 cents. There are 2 main problems with these shorts: 1) the liner is practically paper thin, so for any decent riding, there is not enough cushion there, and 2) the liner and shorts snap together (4 sets of 3 snaps). The snaps are there, obviously, to keep the liner from shifting around. Problem is that if you want to use this liner with any other shorts, or without snapping it in, the snaps painfully dig into the skin at your waist. Some positives: the shorts are very light weight, and they seem to be durable. I am 175 lbs, 5'-10" 32/33 waist, and had to get a large. I typically ride 2x/week, 13-25 miles per ride, singletrack.
I have used it a couple of times for repairs on a mountain bike. Easy to set-up and use. I have had my bike clamped in it for 2 weeks to do a brake job (got lazy) and it hasn't budged at all (no slippage as others have reported). I DID tighten up the screw for the vertical post clamp to prevent slippage.
I gave it 5 stars because I have no point of reference, as this is my first jersey. I mountain bike in NY (Long Island) and up until the beginning of November just rode in my 'dri-fit' shirts. I used this mid November over a long sleeve dri-fit shirt and was very comfortable (in fact, a bit too warm).
