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
