EVS Tug 05 Impact Riding Shorts
Perfect short to protect your parts
I bought this short not only because it has protection built in on the sides but because of the cushion on your rear. My seat is still to stiff so I needed something to protect my parts agains this brand new seat. The shorts work perfectly. Think of them as a bicycle shorts with added protection on the hips. That is what they are.

I ride on the more aggressive side and wanted a little more protection. These shorts offer that but can be a little uncomfortable in a full tuck position.

It just does not have enough. The protecter does not go low enough. I'm going to have them modified !!

Fits well and has side armor
I already own the EVS Tug O2 riding shorts and needed a second pair when the first were being washed. So I decided to upgrade to the 05 for my second pair. They fit slimly under pants as do the 02's, and snugly against my thighs and remain in place.
Size for me as a waist 35-36 wearing the large is excellent.
They do add a layer under your pants so it cannot be avoided that they will add some heat. However they are thin and move with your body well and I've worn them in warmer San Diego days without undue discomfort.
I recommend these if you are considering under pant armor.

the fit is spot on.
I was looking for an extra layer of protection under my riding jeans. This product provides me the piece of mind I was looking for.

Overall, a good product
Fit is comfortable and true to size. Constructed of durable material. Does not bunch up when riding. Fits nicely under my riding pants and jeans and is not noticeable to others. Easy to keep clean. Protection is good. I had a slow speed crash riding the foothills east of Fresno, CA last month and suffered no injuries at all. Not sure how well they would protect in a bad crash. Good ventilation considering most of my riding is in east Texas and nothing vents very well here in the summer.

These shorts are a great buy
What I like about them is that they are pretty low profile - can't even tell I have them on. And they are comfortable too.

Know what you need them for
These are more for comfort on longer rides than serious protection. The hip protectors look much bigger in the picture than in real life, and tailbone is covered with a tiny piece of plastic.
