Short Life Span and uncomfortable chamois

      Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

      Had a tear in the leg after only a few uses. Chamois was very uncomfortable and I could only wear these for rides less than 20 miles. I can't believe all the great reviews.

          These shorts are nice, however for short folks, I am 5'2'' these shorts will come up rather high. That being said, these shorts are very comfortable and even after riding for hours I am not sore. I was worried that there was alot of paddling and might sit wrong, but after using these shorts for the past month I am happy with my purchase. If you want padding, protection and comfy shorts, these are worth the money!

                  Comments about Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 Shorts:

                  My first pair of these is now 1 year old, and have about 4k road miles at 1.5 saddle hours per ride. They've been washed many many times (machine, cold/hand-wash cycle, air dry).

                  They still look new; aside from some spandex glossing around the saddle horn area, they are virtually indistinguishable from the 2 pair I just got a couple weeks ago. The Garneau silkscreen logo has not even started to crack/peel. They fit exactly like a new pair (no stretching out), and the pad is also as new. No loose threads, unravelling etc.

                  I find these shorts to also be extremely comfortable as well. I'm thin, 6'2" 32x26 pants and the medium fit perfectly with no need to cinch the waist tie; they stay up in the waist and down on the thighs. No discomfort whatsoever from either a modern Specialized Body Geometry or ancient Selle Italia leather saddle.

                  All in all I'm completely satisfied with these shorts, they have held up to the test of time, and the performance/price ratio is outstanding. Highly recommended.

                  I usually ride 30-50 miles at a time and when used with chamois cream, I don't even think about my rear end on rides.

                    The gel padding in these LG shorts made me feel like I was riding on a new bike seat (I actually felt a few cm higher off the pedals when wearing these shorts compared to my several year-old Shimano shorts). I realize really should have upgraded sooner. The fit is not amazing and sometimes the padding shifts backwards requiring some mid-ride adjustment, but they are good shorts for the price.
