    These have a good amount of padding which I seem to need as I age (60's)when I'm on the road bike. Based on other reviews about size, I ordered a large and they fit perfectly. I'm 5'7", just a tad under 150. I wore them on a 40 miler and was very comfortable. The color is dark grey.

    While definitely not a pro cyclist, these shorts are that comfortable and the padding is really nice. They have a good length, to just a bit above my knees, grip well and don't ride up. They feel very well made and like they will last for quite a while!

    I haven't used these shorts yet but have tried them on and they definitely are comfortable as well as having padding where you need it when riding a bike. I also wear them under riding (horse) breeches when I'm on long trail rides. They save the saddle sores.

    I have several other road bike short, but the Castelli Elegante Shorts are by far are the most comfortable ones when I'm on a long ride.

    These are truly comfy. I rode a 134-miler last weekend in them and no soreness on bottom.

    I've been searching for a comfortable bike short for a long time, and I finally found my preferred brand in Castelli. I was having a lot of issues with other brands, but NONE with this pair of shorts.

    I've only worn these shorts twice so far but they fit great and are super comfy. At first I was a little surprised by the thickness of the seat pad as it seemed a little bulky. I purchased the gray color and they are a nice variation-5 feet 130 lbs and the medium fit good-not super tight. Great shorts for a great price!

    Delighted to find Castelli shorts at such a fantastic price at STP. My first pair lasted many years and I found the Kiss chamois very comfortable. I also like the longer leg length. XL fits my generous rear - 5' 7" 180lb. The black had sold out so I took a chance on the amethyst and was very pleased when they arrived. Liked these shorts so much that when the navy became available I ordered another pair. I highly recommend Castelli cycle shorts for their comfort, fit and quality.

    Castelli is an awesome, well made product in general. However, they make different lines for the hardcore racer types who have minimal body fat and relatively few curves on their bodies. Hence some of their apparel doesn't fit those of us that have the somewhat womanly curved body. However, this short works very well on my size 14 athletic woman body. I got a size XL because I know Castelli runs a bit small. These fit very well, the chamois pad stays put, no slipping side to side on long rides, the waist band is snugly comfortable. For comparison of sizing: In Pearl Izumi shorts I usually wear a size L.

    These shorts are comfortable, but have a little to Big of a chamois, the chamois is good it just is too big in the back.........Comfortable material, true to size.......wish they came in X-Small-I'd buy another pair!!
