Purchased on sale I think these are a great deal. Can't speak to durability, as I've only got 3 rides & 3 washes on them. Love the silky smooth fabric. Great pad and the straps don't move, twist, or bunch. I honestly forget I'm wearing them while on the bike. I'm at the upper end of the med size range, but they fit me perfectly. I'm 5'-9" with 33" waist, 42" chest & weigh 165 pounds. I also tried the size large which would have been fine too, but ultimately I decided I prefer the tighter fit of the mediums. Liked them well enough I bought a second pair.
