I have used these shorts twice so far. Once for a 24-mile bike ride and once for a 24-mile ride plus a 2-mile run. I haven't used them for a swim yet. I have never done a triathlon, and these are my first pair of these kind of shorts. I like them quite a bit. The only thing that concerns me is that ...

I checked on the size chart for the size of my waist. It said that I needed a medium. Ok, so I ordered them. Wrong choice. They were just too tight. The large size fits much better. The mediums were okay for riding a bike with it's seat, but they were uncomfortable if sitting in a chair. The padding is a little lighter than others I have, but my butt has gotten used to the seat on the bike so they work well for the shorter rides I generally do (up to an hour and a half)

I normally wear a medium (waist 33-34), but got a large after reading previous reviews. The large is still too small in the thighs and, worse, in the crotch. Seem well made otherwise. The padding is very light, much lighter than what you would get from a bike short.

There are two things.
1) The sizes are too small. Medium was supposed to be 32-35. My waist is 33 and I am not a fatty. I was able to get into them, but they pinch when I sit and were causing chaff. Eventually they would cause a pressure sore.
2) They bleed blue from the material either in the inside blue belt strap or the foam. I did not even use soap on them as I usually wash them by hand in the tub, just squeezing out the salt and sweat.
I do like them. So I am exchanging them.

I use these for cycling of all types. Most cycling shorts made in the past 5 years have padding as thick as a 1950's sanitary napkin. I don't know who thought that was a good idea, but its not! The thin padding in these shorts are just what my sitz bones need! I'd prefer that they be about two inches longer.

My husband enjoys these for running and swimming. They fit well (tight enough to stay on, not too tight to be uncomfortable) and have a small amount of padding which should make biking more comfortable without interfering with running/swimming.
