I like these enough that I have come back a year later, looking another pair. The old pair is doing fine, the decals have just come off. I haven't worn a lot of other biking shorts.... these are such a good value and suit my needs... so I can't compare too well. I have large muscular thighs and the grippers on these DO NOT cut in me, which I like. I did have one pair of biking shorts that made my legs look like sausages. The padding is adequate, and I usually ride 10-15 miles... sometimes 20. I have had no soreness or complaints. To sum it up... these probably aren't the greatest shorts out there, but they are a good value, they suit my needs well, they hold up and they ARE MADE IN THE USA!!!
