Excellent, comfortable & very quick delivery

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
This is an excellent lightweight and comfortable product and can be used in All Seasons. The padding is good quality & very nice for medium rides (have used it once for a 40k ride) but feel it could be used for longer rides as well. It fits me very well - I ordered a Large size and I am 5'10" / 72kgs / waist 33.5". The ordering process was very easy and Evans dispatched it very promptly. Got it in less than a week which is really good for International delivery to India. Thank you for the fantastic service & product as really needed it for my early morning rides as winter has set in early :-)

Try them on first

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
I spent quite a bit of time researching padded cycling shorts both online and speaking to other cyclist friends.
I wanted something that would allow me to still go about my business at the end of a cycle run without necessarily having to change out of a pair of padded lycra shorts. The beauty of these is I can wear them under my regular trousers or shorts reasonably comfortably and without them being noticed.
Padded boxer shorts are available across a wide range of prices - I've seen some under £10 and some more expensive than the Gore ones.
Why did I choose these? Other reviews suggested they would last longer, retaining their shape and that the padding was slightly thicker than cheaper brands. I can't confirm this as I haven't worn them enough yet and I've never had cycle shorts before...
The other issue I noted from online reviews was sizing - most suggested I would need to buy the next size up. I'm a 38" waist and Gore's own sizing chart suggests their XL fits up to a 37.75" (accurate!) waist. So I chose XXL (something I've never been in my life!) However I have to say I think I would have got away with the XL (or maybe even the L). I did try them on in the shop but they had been ordered in for me and didn't have the other sizes to try.
The down side of being a bit to large is the padding moves around a bit and I find myself having to readjust mid-ride.

A snug, comfortable fit. Well designed.

They are very comfortable to wear and give me a re-assuringly padded ride on a leather Brooks saddle and hard tyres!
Pricey, but you only get what you pay for and I am pleased with my investment.
