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.

Works wonders 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. August 4, 2014
Keeps you cool These "boxer" type shorts do the same as the shirt, keeps you cool. Added benefit? Helps keep "everything" in place. February 11, 2014
Awesome sorts 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. July 29, 2013
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. June 10, 2013
Very nice Gonna Be nice on long hot days. Fit is good and snug. I'll see how durable they are. Seem good at this point. October 21, 2012
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. July 16, 2012
Moisture-wicking underwear that works I've worn these a few times now, one time in 100+ F weather. I have to say that these shorts work pretty well. Do I think these are so much better than X other brand? No, I'm sure under armour, alpinestars, and others all make base-wear that is just as good. These do cost half the price of some of the others though. Sizing is the same as boxer briefs. No issues with them so far. Sorry, no pictures for you. July 9, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Coinneach F: Good reviews; appears to be best bang for the buck. May 28, 2015
Patrick S: Good reviews. Good price Mar 25, 2015
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 jockys Mar 26, 2014
Coinneach F asked: Can I get some sizing information on this short or the related undershirt? May 27, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

Dmitriy M: They're pretty "standard" sized as far as underwear is concerned.

I have a 32 inch waist and 32 inch inseam and medium works great for me, like pretty much all other non-number sized pants, or underwear.

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
