Rated 3 out of 5 by Wheelsucker pad is not large enough
The pad shape and size does not help with crafting. The Pearl Izsumi liners are much better. I bought both at the same time to compare.

The gel liner in the pants really bake bicycle riding much more comfortable - for not a lotta money.
I might just buy another pair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Snortley Tiny Chamois
I have used other brands of liner shorts for years and have been satisfied with them. However, I had an exchange credit and so figured I'd give these a try; a gel chamois could be good.
Unfortunately, when the shorts arrived, I took one look and returned them right away. The reason: the chamois is a full 2 inches narrower than on other shorts. It is barely enough to cover average sit bones. If they shift just a bit, you're not protected. This is ridiculous. It's as if the designers have never in their lives seen a pair of riding shorts, and could use an elementary lesson in human anatomy, too.
Liner shorts are a great, but not this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowhuskyboy Gel liner is worth the price
This is the 3rd pair of Canari gel liner shorts that I have purchased. I am very satified with the quality and durability. I cycle about 12 hours per week on a road bike, so I need a comfortable liner for that amount of saddle time. Under a pair of Nike running shorts, this gel liner is up to the task. They have reduced size of the gel pad area, but it has not been a detriment to me. Easy maintenance too--machine wash, air dry, good to go!

Rated 2 out of 5 by IndyBeaner Disappointing modification
I have a pair of these liners from last year and they were/are great! Reordered this year but Canari has made a small but meaningful change to the product. The central pad is still present but a second layer of cushioning has been removed. The absence of this layer has introduced some points of abrasion not found in the original. I can no longer use this product nor recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsPoe Husband loves them
My husband wears these when mountain biking two or three days a week. He used to wear spandex bike shorts, but snags along the trail from branches and briars was hard on the spandex. He really prefers these liners with regular shorts on the outside. When I suggested buying a second pair, he was very enthusiastic. The fit is true, construction is sturdy, and they do launder well. I don't put them through the dryer, but probably could.

Rated 3 out of 5 by flyguya1 Disappointed in Canari Gel Liner
I find the gel padding in the gel liner to be a little on the sparse side. It is both thinner than I had hoped and smaller in area. It works fine under a pair of LLBen bike shorts that also have a thin liner. .. The two together are just right. Maybe that is what the liner is meant to do. I thought it would be a stand alone padded liner under just regular shorts. Alas, it's too thin for me. Some one else may find it just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UncleFrankLives canari liner review
Purchased to wear under shorts and pants while commuting. Nicely sized (all dimensions) and great ventilation. Elastic cuff bands keep material from sliding up. Still getting used to the pad. Have a very comfortable saddle and this pad gets in the way. Hoping it will break in after a few more outings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eaglekjg Biker shorts
This product is well worth the money and very comfortable when cycling. Helps make the ride more enjoyable. Have only had them a few weeks but can feel the difference immediately. I know I will get my money's worth out of these shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewBikerLady Mens Gel Liner Bike Shorts
I purchased the 2 pair of shorts with hope they would fit my husband, but when he felt they were too snug(please make some for 2xx men-of which I will purchase),I decided to wear them myself. I'm an xl i.e.36-38 women. They fit beautifully and are very comfortable and don't ride up due to the leg elastic. The gel padding is very comfortable also(no more saddle sores) and I do NOT wear other shorts over them I wear them as my shorts. His loss my gain. Please make them larger so I can buy a few pairs for my hubby. I will be doing more riding now!
