The chamois is thin but excellent quality and placement. The fit is fantastic and I usually forget that I even have a liner on once Im off the bike. The legs are really tight but not at all uncomfortble. They never ever ride up and they keep my knee pads from sliding as well. The pockets are handy as well, but the sell point for me is the fantastic fit and feel with a cool constuction. I got these on sale for a song, but they are worth the list price to me after a few months using them.
