    Buying a baggy insert/liner separately

    Anybody have recommendations for brands or sources of buying just the insert/liner with chamois for using with regular baggy pants?

    I saw REI carries their own CO-OP line. And online they carry Pearl Izumi, 2 versions of Zoic, Louis Garneau, Dakine, etc.

    I'd like something with minimal padding. Which brand do you recommend and where did you buy them Thanks!

    I like the Zoic and also just bought a Yeti liner on sale which I haven't tried out yet. I usually wait to find them for sale on Backcountry.
    Saddle up, Effendi. We ride.

    Nice. Carbon? i did not realize Zoic had a total of five types of padded inserts of various padding levels. Great to know. I was sort of aware of two at least...

    I buy the Performance Bike house brand. They have like 3 different models. I prefer the ones with the lime green liner.

    Edit: it's these. They are kinda steep, but I usually buy them for ~30$ a pair on black Friday.

    The Performance link is for a lycra bike short with chamois, with a 3-layer chamois. I don't recall my old 80s-era road shorts with chamois having more than one layer, natural chamois. i don't think i need much padding really. but maybe TB requires more.

    I think i'm looking more for something like these:

    funny that they have a "reflective" logo when they're designed to be worn underneath shorts. lol

    Club Ride makes some comfortable, cheap liners. Sierra Trading Post was blowing the out a while back.

    Thanks for the great info folks! Didn't realize 5 levels either & just ordered a carbon. It should be a nice improvement over the cheaper ones I have been trying. :-)

    Thanks for your recommendation. I just ordered one of these to test & compare.

    I'm a large guy that most of the XXLs fit, but the chamois of most are not padded enough for me beyond 2 hours.

    So far the best I've tried are the Zoic Carbon & Sugoi RS Pro, with the RS Pro lasting the longest. :-)
