Living in the California San Joaquin Valley, where the temps exceed 100 and the sun beats on you from the get go. These are the best protection by far. Easy to put on and they stay up during my 3-4 hr rides. Great air Flo and easy to wash and air dry
I have this in black. I was initially concerned that the dark color would heat up too much in the summer. However, it turned out to be quite comfortable while blocking out the sun's rays. If one wets it with water, it provides are noticeable cooling effect.
Use to protect skin from sun on long rides. Have worn with temps in high 80's and they're surprisingly comfortable. Slightly tacky lining on top keeps them up inside your shorts. Liked my first pair so much I bought another three.
