Dainese Hard Shorts
Great product which you expect from Dainese
These shorts fit comfortably under Dainese D1 Jeans. I am a size 34-36 and a large fit perfectly. Only a slight discomfort upon sitting down on the bike due to the coccyx armor, but that very quickly becomes unnoticeable when riding. The coccyx will most likely conform after a few rides. The shorts also breath well. I would recommend them.

Not a lot to report here that other reviewers haven't reported already - great, protective, low-profile short that will protect you in critical areas in the event of a crash.
Sizing wise - I'm 5'10" 180 lbs. 34" waist. I purchased a medium. They fit perfectly, if not just a bit tight in the legs, but I wouldn't go a size up. Much of my weight is in my legs (larger quads).
I wear them under kevlar jeans. No one can really tell they are there. These are great for a somewhat bent over riding position. I ride a Thruxton-styled Bonneville. Great for sport riders. The tailbone protection WILL be uncomfortable for upright / cruiser riders.

Very comfortable with great protection.
I'm 5'7" about 150 lbs with a 32 waist and I purchased "Medium" size.
The shorts fit pretty snug but not uncomfortable just enough to keep the protection in place and are thin enough to wear under regular jeans (not skinny jean). The tail bone plate is unnoticeable during riding but it could become bothersome if you plan to wear it during a work day.

Product fits great. I wear size 40 pants and I bought an XL. Lining for the waist and legs elastic is lined with rubber so that it stays put. Keeps the ride comfy. Definitely worth it for the price.

Very comfortable, great price
I originally bought these in a large, but they were a little too big. I am 5-9 and around 193. Most of my weight is in my gut :( ( im working on it lol) But I have skinny legs and my upper torso, aside from my stomach, is average to thin build. I returned them, with no hassle, for a medium. They fit perfect. They are very comfortable and not very bulky. I wear them with my slim jeans, not skinny jeans, and they fit well and are comfortable even on the bike.
When I returned the larges I was emailed and told the mediums were currently out of stock and that i would be notified as soon as they came in. True to their word I was notified. Two days later they came.
I've always had a very positive experience when dealing with the guys at Revzilla. Being a new rider I really rely on their opinions and experience. They are very helpful. You never feel like they are rushing you and you are never made to feel like an idiot. They really do take time with you and you can tell they really are into riding. Not like some places, the guys at Revzilla have experience with a lot of the stuff they sell and they know what they are talking about. I will continue to buy my gear and whatever else i might need , from Revzilla.

You can wear these over your underwear, they're seem to have really good airflow, and I'm quite sure the pads will give the protection I want if I do have an off. Also fits well under my Icon jeans.

Good protective short
Fits good, haven't fallen so can't comment on protection but seems like it will do a good job. The tail bone protection seems solid but may sit a bit low but if I fall will probably be better off.

Quality is good. Air flow definitely better than other shorts. I feel a little safer with these on after seeing some serious rash on my friend. Little weird at first but after 10 minutes you forget you have them on. The tail pad would definitely help keep your tailbone safe and the ce thigh pads would keep you from rashing up for sure. A little awkward sitting down on a hard surface but when riding you don't notice. I was telling my friend when he came over that i got a pair. He didn't even notice i had them under my jeans... Low profile and good protection... Not much but just a little piece of mind.. I would recommend.
