Comfortable and well made
These shorts fit well and appear to be well made. I also have the Klim armored shorts and they fit great as well, but these do seem to have better protection. The d30 pads are thicker than the Klim, yet do not feel bulky or uncomfortable. I wore these under my adv pants, which also had hip padding (giving me double layers on the hips) and it did not feel awkward or uncomfortable at all. I like having the additional tail bone and thigh pad as well. My test for riding shorts is whether I am anxious to rip them off at the end of a long ride or do I walk around the house for a while forgetting that they are even on. These fall in the later category.
