Bottom Line:   
This product sure fills a niche for me. I wear these all the time now insead of regular shorts. They function as a short and knee warmer without the added weight of a fleece liner. Since they go below the knee they are able to hold the top of my knee pads on when riding DH. They don't stretch out or get ruined in the wash. I wash them after every ride and all the elastic an stitching has held up great. This is very important to me as we ride through winter in the mud. The fact that the bib holds them in place is a huge advantage. Many times shorts will slip or move the wrong way, but with the bib they always stay in the right spot. The pad has held up perfect as well. It really soaks up the sweat well. It does not chafe or rub you the wrong way. It stays comfortable even on long hot rides. Back in June we started a century at 5:00am in Oakland ca., it was freezing! After about 3 hours and arriving at Mt. Diablo, the temps climbed to well over 100 degrees F!! It was so hot!! I must say that the whole day I was comfortable in the Tec Knicker. They helped me out on the cold morning and during the hottest part of the day! I would check these out before making your next short purchase...

Bottom Line:   
Excellent cool weather knicker. Fit is very good. I'm 6' 180 lbs and I bought a medium -- so be SURE to try this on first. The bottom's are tight (how I want 'em) and don't restrict movement at all. The top is so flexible and well designed that you don't even know it's there.

Great bonch pad in this knicker. Really big, and flared out wide on the sides. Extreme padding.

Go buy a pair. They look cool too -- just yesterday on the way home from the trails some high school chicks were whistling at me. You can't beat that -- gives you more energy to ride with!
