I recently discovered Altura Mens Padded Undershorts and was thankful to have found a cotton based, padded, undershort. So I bought 3 pairs at £14.99 each. When I received the undershorts, I was very pleased with the product. They were comfortable and did their job of adding an extra cushion on the 8 mile cycle to work. However, despite the washing label advising you can wash them up to 40°C, the foam inside the undershorts can get out of shape and has done on all three pairs. In one of the pairs, the foam has actually separated and now I have nothing in the middle.
The foam itself feels like it is of poor quality and very fragile.
Personally, I wouldn’t recommend these at all. At first I thought it was a great, viable option, but when it came to the washing of them, I was proven wrong.
These only get a one bike rating out of five from me.
