    Comments about CANARI Men's Velo Gel Cycling Shorts:

    I have been training (40 miles/day) for a 100 mile ride and wanted to save my "good" pair of Canari bike shorts for the upcoming ride so I first purchased 2 pairs of the "XL" size but they were just a tad too small and found that these shorts have a drawstring in the waist so I returned them for the "2XL" size and was much happier with the fit. I have since ordered 3 more pairs (to cut down on laundry as I ride every day) and have washed them a few times now and they seem to hold up well in the wash. At this price, they are a great value.

    Comments about CANARI Men's Velo Gel Cycling Shorts:

    Sizes run Big- I'm 6'1'' 230lbs thought i would get XL but i went with Large after reading other reviews. Large is a little big but i feel like Medium would be just a little small.

    Pad too low in back- doesnt cover enough of my butt. needs to come up higher in rear.

    tag- the size tag itches you at the waist. i dont feel it when im riding but you notice it when you first but them on.

    Other details- i ride 6 miles each way, 2/3 days a week. i have a hard racing type seat and ride on the street. This is my first padded shorts so i wasnt sure what to expect. I rode three weeks on a folded towel before i made this purchase. i would compare the comfort equivelant to that.- Pad cover the boys and it makes it difficult to use the "pinch and roll" scratch technique when i have an itch.

    I WOULD SPEND MORE MONEY AND GET A DIFFERENT PAIR

      Comments about CANARI Men's Velo Gel Cycling Shorts:

      I own two pair of these. First older pair still going strong. Comfortable. Had good luck so bought a second pair. This pair has issues. They changed the chamois. I was happy at first, then like another reviewer the gel pad came loose from the liner in the wash and bunched up. I spent quite a while straightening it out so they are still usable. Now I only hand wash.

          I just finished 4 miles running and 12 miles cycling, I rode a bike with a stock seat, which I have never done before. I always use heavy padded seats. After 12 miles on the bike and 200 mile drive home, I feel great. I am buying another pair.

          Best Uses

            Comments about CANARI Men's Velo Gel Cycling Shorts:

            These shorts were great for the couple months. I always washed them in cold water and hung them to dry. Then came a ride that was VERY uncomfortable. When I got home I found that the gel padding was bunched up. Turns out the gel padding was no longer attached to the "chamios". Every time I wash them I have to spend 10-15 mins straightening out the pad, no easy feat because the gel pad is sealed between chanois & short. DO NOT BUY! There are other shorts in the same price range that have better quality.

            i've never worn cycling shorts. no more suffering. i didn't know which brand to buy or how to buy. the gel padding in the front covers a big area. i love it. it cradles the boys making them comfy. the crotch and rearend is well covered. i will buy more and highly recommend them.

            Comments about CANARI Men's Velo Gel Cycling Shorts:

            Just looking online for quality inexpensive riding shorts...the last batch I purchased 25 years ago and they have served me well. Hit all of the major stores and cycling shop and could find nothing to fit my former bodybuilding but avid cyclist frame (30 miles every other day). Online, I saw the shorts listed and ordered 2 pair (XXL). Already rotating 3 older pair of XXL shorts...I would have conluded that these newer versions would be more than I ever expected with improvements in the technology and quality of materials available today. The material was not the best quality; barely got the shorts over my thighs; once I did impressions of private areas were readilty revealed. The waist band was a fit (GREAT) but could have rode a bit higher on my waist...I personally do not like or prefer hip hugger type biking shorts or clothing. All in all...probably a great product for smaller riders...but a 6'3" 275 lbs. where a good portion of my weight is in my legs...this was not the best purchase for me. Both pair have been returned!!!
