    I have used Pearl Izumi Attacks and LG Pro Feel shorts. Both are pretty cheap at Nashbar. I used to wear a baggy over them, but now I only wear those. So much more comfortable and cooler in the heat and I don't get hung up on the saddle anymore.

    Buy the best that you can afford. With padded shorts the higher the price, the better the quality, fit and comfort. I'm a big fan of Voler apparel:

    I have 8 panel Endura's.
    The snap into my Humvees and Singletraks. Love 'em.

    Usually, the more panels the better...

    I like Zoic and Louis Garneau. Good padding inside.

    I use Pearl Izumi liners under any short with flat seams. You can just use a board short over them.They cost anywhere from $15-35 depending on the deal. The 3-D chamois is great. I have 3 pairs so when I travel wear an old biking short over a fresh liner daily. If you're getting into long epics they make an even thicker 4-D chamois but it only comes in expensive short liner combos.

    Canari Evolution bibs with Prana Mojo shorts as a shell. Best investment I've made in this hobby.

    I have a couple of pairs of Qloom shorts and a pair of Race Face. I prefer my Qlooms as the pockets are in a better location, and the vent zips on the front are a nice touch on a hot day.
