Good product for the price
These shorts provide good airflow and don't retain moisture. They seem true to size and the there is no irritation from the seams. The only downsides I see are the lack of a fly and that the slick fabric allows me slide a little more during braking & accelerating.

I love this thing!
This is so much more comfortable than the cotton briefs I've been using were terrible. The airflow I get from these make my ride a lot more comfortable. The compression factor really helps out on my sport bike seat and made my ride just that little bit more enjoyable.
I was on the fence originally about buying these but was really glad I did.

This product works exactly they way we were hoping it would, draws moisture away from the skin and for you ladies out there there are no seams in the wrong places so it's smooth riding all the way.

Keeps you cool
These "boxer" type shorts do the same as the shirt, keeps you cool. Added benefit? Helps keep "everything" in place.

Probably the most comfortable piece of underwear I've ever worn. It's awesome that you can rinse these out and they're fresh to wear the next day.

Good base layer
I've only worn them a few times so I can't speak to durability. They are comfortable even in warmer weather. As good as under armour and a bit cheaper too.

Gonna Be nice on long hot days. Fit is good and snug. I'll see how durable they are. Seem good at this point.

Base layer shorts
Very comfortable. As good as Under Armor at a much better price. They stay put, do not ride up and flow a good amount of air, even under jeans.
I'll buy again.

Vincent V: good reviews, fairly priced. Worth a buy to see if this product can fit my needs as I am doing a lot of riding this year.Mar 18, 2015
Stephen R: I already have the padded MSR shorts and they are great. They keep my butt dry in the heat and prevent chaffing. I recentlly bought padded riding pants and no longer need the padding.Apr 21, 2014
S. R. T: wanted to try something besides jockysMar 26, 2014
Coinneach F asked:Can I get some sizing information on this short or the related undershirt?May 27, 2015
Vincent V:I will try to assist. Note these items are meant to be a snug fit.
shorts - I normally wear an XL Jockey boxer brief and these fit me similarly snug to almost tight. For perspective, I wear a 40 waist jean with a loose fit as the normal jeans are too restricting.
Top - I ordered a 2XL top and this was tighter than expected on me, I was expecting a snug fit. The collar is also a bit small for my neck. I normally wear a 2xl jockey undershirt and have room to spare.
That said, both of these products performed excellent during a trip down the blue ridge parkway. If I had been wearing normal cotton underclothes, I would have been miserable but these did a great job when hot at wicking away the sweat. I also purchased Answer and Klim underwear that performed quite well also.May 28, 2015
A S:The shorts fit true to size of your under shorts you would ware now. 32-34=M, 36-38=L, and 40-42=XL. I don't have the undershirt but based on the shorts I'm thinking the fit is about the same.May 27, 2015
