Very comfortable and a good quality pad. The silicone grippers on the legs could be more sticky, or maybe its my legs are too skinny. Anyway I would recommend these in this price range.
The medium fits my 32" waist well, they're comfortable and don't start to fall down. The pad and fit is a significant improvement over the "Stream" version.
I'm 5'11 and ordered L size. Fits well and supports your ass really well. Very happy about these.
To replace some existing shorts (the manufacturer of which had ceased) I had recently bought shorts of three different makes. All were returned due to poor/strange fit (FOR THE MARKED SIZE). The sizing of lycra shorts seems to be a black art! When I bought these from Merlin I didn't have much hope of success. How wrong I was! These were a very good fit (FOR THE MARKED SIZE). After about 250 miles of riding I'm pretty sure that these Altura Airstream shorts will turn out to be the best I've ever used! The dual density insert is quite simply MAGIC! The insert feels a bit strange at first but as it gets warm it conforms perfectly to one's rear for a kind of posterial nirvana. GET THESE SHORTS! GET SEVERAL PAIRS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Very comfortable shorts, fit well.Good value for the price.
Altura products have not disappointed and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more of their stuff.
