Nice accessory but too short

PostedSeptember 17, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: sizing
They fit nicely to Altura Attack 3/4's in their designated loops. The straps are wide and comfortable.
Unfortunately the braces are too short and required additional fabric and velcro to make them fit. I'm only 6 feet tall so I would expect these braces to fit without modifications, even with the price as low as this.

Don't buy the shorts without these!

PostedNovember 5, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
A perfect/essential match for the short, so much so, I cant understand why they don't come together.
The braces go perfectly with the shorts, and keep them in place throughout a ride. They have plenty of adjustment.
The braces turned the shorts from an uncomfortable 1-2 starts to 4-5 stars!

Versatile support

PostedFebruary 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, Lightweight, versatile
I'm not the most svelte of cyclists and have always had the problem of shorts and longs rolling downward at the waist when cycling. I don't own the shorts these braces are designed for but by sewing on three short lengths of fabric tape at the strategic points on the waistband of those I do own I am able to use these very effectively. I'm very pleased with them and would advise anyone with falling down shorts to buy the braces and do what I did to make them fit any garment.

Why not included with the shorts?

PostedOctober 17, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable
Cons: Expensive
I bought Attack 3/4 shorts last year. Great shorts but found them impossible to keep up even when tightened to max - especially over lycra undershorts. The braces are the solution and work well (in fact are essential).
2 points -
1. I found out about the braces by accident when browsing site - why is there no link between these products?
2. The braces are so essential to the shorts, why doesn't Altura just include them with the shorts (even if they make the shorts a bit more expensive)?
