    Favorite MTB liner shorts? Best Chamois?

    Looking to replace a pair of raggety stretched-out Sugoi liner shorts.
    I've got a pair of older Troy Lee Designs liner shorts I bought on Ebay last year. They're excellent, but (of course) they don't make that style anymore and most reviews on their new liners suggest they're crap.
    So...what liner shorts does your taint ask for by name? Dakine or Pearl Izumi any good?

    Pearl Izumi liner short. Retail somewhere $30-40.00. Best that I've used.

    +1 for the izumi liner short. And also their liner bib short. That has a ton of pockets if you're into that sort of thing. But mostly I like it because I find the bib stays in place better and the chamois is a little nicer. Plus izumi's warranty is pretty much hassle-free.

    bibs are great^^ a store guy gave me the sizing tip that the shoulder straps can pull a bit while you are standing straight up and then they will be perfect when you lean forward into the riding position, make sure the front is low enough to pulll down for a piss

    Club Ride makes liners with kind of wide coverage and substantially better than normal edges. Thickness tapers off smoothly toward the edges where the seams lay flat. Very similar to Zoics until you look at that seam. Lower waistband than PI's and shorter inseam. Mesh that's more breathable than lycra. I like PI's ok and wear Ziocs if I'm not going to be out as long, but the Club Ride "3 hour" liners are my favorite.

    I mostly use Zoics. They have online deals every so often or I can pick a few up cheap at their warehouse sale. They don't last a huge amount of time but good enough for the price.

    I'll second Peal Izumi's liners. They are mesh so they are cool, they offer a bib too. Mine don't ride up.

    I picked up a pair of the cheaper Pearl Izumi liners this summer and so far I haven't been a fan. They have a couple of weird pressure points that I don't like.

    For less expensive stuff, zoic. For more expensive, x4 on pearl izumi.

    I do several multi-hour mountain bike rides per week. I’ll wear my cheap Fox and Troy Lee liner shorts only during mid summer, because they’re cooler, but the inside of my sits bones inevitably get raw and painful. When I go back to my regular Pearl Izumi Pro chamois, I instantly don’t feel any pain, and my ass slowly heals. They’re expensive (CAN$200) but worth every cent if you’re a regular rider.

    I love my Ibex liners but they are expensive AF ($80).

    Fortunately, the liners I purchased mid-2016 were warrantied at the end of that season after I wore holes in the wool on both sides of the pad. They didn't want the old ones back- just sent a new pair. So this year I had 2 pairs of Ibex liners to use.

    The new replacement pair wore out this year, but at least I got 2/$80 instead of the one.
