I've ridden twice with these shorts - 2+ and 4 hours - and I found the shorts to fit great. The tie string lets me snug it to my comfort. The legs stay in place thanks to the grippers and the padding seems to be just right. No chafing from the seams or padding.

Good fit. No seams in the wrong spots. Padding is firm and good for most rides under 5 hours, is single-layer (very important for durability), and cleans easily. These are my favorite pair of shorts and I have 3 now.

Three pair of these were bought prior to RAGBRAI and took me the 462 miles across Iowa in 7 days in complete comfort. I credit the gel padding.
I also liked the short's length. Would have given 5 stars if the fit was less wrinkly. I bought these after a season or two in the Canari Canyon Mountain Bike Gel shorts which also work perfectly.

These gel pads are the comfiest I've tried. The shorts wash well and dry overnight. Not a totally smooth fit on me, a bit of loose fabric here and there.
Bought these after using the Canyon mountain gel shorts a season, both products satisfactory.

Canari makes a decent and very affordable bike shorts. The gel doesn't seem to make much difference from regular padding. It does make sitting on the seat a bit slippery, depending upon your positioning. Sizing is about right. So far, so good.

Other than the tighter than normal thigh bands (the only reason for four stars and not five), I'm fully satisfied with these shorts. Granted, I've only ridden four or five times while wearing them, I don't foresee any issues. For those out there who tend toward frugality, I think you'll appreciate the quality as well as the value of this purchase. Ride on!
