I use these under my road riding gear and my off-road gear. I personally consider them to be necessary for protection and love the freedom of movement and reasonable comfort that they provide. Klim did a great job designing these and I intend to buy more of them.

Say goodbye to the days of chafing and other riding maladies associated with loose-filling riding shorts. The KLIM Tactical Short is designed to keep your equipment stowed properly and to wick moisture away from your skin to ensure maximum possible comfort on your ride. The saddle area is constructed with a high-tech triple-density chamois that will help absorb riding vibrations and cushion your ride. PORON® XRD® Extreme Impact Protection material is embedded in strategic locations to help absorb impacts. On impact, the PORON® XRD® high-performance molecules creates a unique protective shield that can repeatedly absorb up to *90% of the most intense force.
