    I have some Blackbottoms shorts that have a thin chamois that covers a larger area.

    You can buy off of Blackbottoms website at a good discount but their shipping cost is out of control (last I checked).

    Edit: I just went and checked their current shipping costs. When I looked to buy a pair of shorts from them last year it was $21 shipping for 1 pair of shorts. wtf? I emailed them to ask about that and they replied that that was how it is and that is was still a good deal on the shorts. Maybe they ship large lots of items mostly.

    I just went and pretended to buy something and shipping was $12. That's better.

    They have different types of shorts. I have ones from BB that I like that have a very thin chamois type material, no shaped foam padding. These might be the 8 panel tour shorts.

    And I have another pair that has a shaped foam padded chamois like many of the other brands. I don't like it quite as much.
