Reviews & Questions
Its not CE level 2, a compromise I can make. Most of the other shorts appeared to have bulky pads with flat edges. If not, they had no CE approval. The MK3 Defenders have CE level 1 pads with tapered edges so they're hardly noticeable with jeans on.
I was skeptical about the hinged pad design, figuring the hinge wouldn't line up right and they'd flex and bulge. This is not the case, I can bend my leg with full range of motion with no binding. Its actually a very well thought-out design that covers a critical area. The hinge itself doesn't protrude and press on the hips. Whether the hinge wears out after repeat use, time will tell.
Pads are a little stiffer than I expected but still flexible enough. I can walk around normally without any discomfort.
The tailbone pad is not CE-rated but seems well-placed. I can tell that on long rides it might press on the back of my street saddle and become uncomfortable, but its removable if it gets annoying.
Fit, finish, and quality are excellent.
I'm a 38 waist and the XXL fits perfect.
Made in the UK, not China! Overall, excellent value.

Surprisingly, they fit under my jeans, no problem.
