Overall very good! I do need a size small but medium was the only size available. Well made and very comfortable. The padded was great and helped to minimize chafing. I have an extended tailbone so not much helps me when paddling, but these shorts did :-).
Tested these paddle shorts last weekend. They fit like they were tailor-made for me. They are very comfortable. I would prefer the legs to be slightly longer. There doesn't appear to be much padding in the seat but my rear-end felt pretty good after a few hours in a sea kayak.
I have recently bought a 2nd pair of Viakobi VOcean shorts for use with my Epic V8 Surfski. I am very happy with these shorts. - Fit - Very good fit - Comfort - Very comfortable including padding where you need at and a slightly raised profile at the back which is ideal for a Surfski seat - Quality - A quality product with strong stitching
I love them! Super comfortable, makes paddling so much better.
Thanks that's great to hear!
These are great and reduce rubbing above my waist which was why I purchased them.
Thanks for the feedback - this is great to hear as it's such an important part of the design :)
