Aerostich Riding Shorts
- Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2012):
Overall I think this is a decent product. They truly did extend my seat time and, consequently, the number of miles I could cover.
I wore them on a hot summer trip from the Midwest to Texas. The heat revealed the products shortcomings (pun not intended): they could not wick the sweat as fast as I was producing it which led to a mild rash as the trip went on (I washed them every night in Woolite) and the tall waist saw them pinch and bunch near my belly button producing folds that I noticed more and more during the trip.
Bathroom breaks were a bit more complicated without a fly and the moist stickiness resulting from the very hot weather (100+ temperatures).
I find myself looking at the merino wool shorts because of that fiber's greater comfort range.
I can live with the design's bunching, but will only use these when the weather is cool.
