Favorite Shorts (or Liners) for Touring?
For touring, I usually wear padded shorts as a liner under baggy nylon outer shorts. I like to wear baggy shorts so I'm more comfortable in towns, and I like using liners for the obvious reasons: less bulk for packing, less stuff to launder and less stuff to dry.
I've been using Andiamos (Andiamos at Amazon)
for the past few years, but their pads were pretty thin to start with, and by now they're quite worn and ready for replacement.
Before I buy new Andiamos, I was wondering you guys have other recommendations.
I see Canari
and Pearl iZumi
(Amazon links) both make liners as well, but I haven't tried either.
I've also considered just using regular underwear (perhaps wool?)...
Any particular favorites?
