Padded Short Liners

For those that use padded short liners what are your favorite ones? I like to wear my own shorts but want the padding of a cylcling short. I have a few pair of liners, but am not thrilled with them. I'm looking for some suggestions on some new ones. Thanks...

As I prefer bibs, I just throw a pair of shorts over them if I am on a ride where I feel that is more appropriate. Used to do the same thing with regular bike shorts. Never saw the advantage of liners over regular bike shorts/bibs.

I've got a couple pairs of PI ones that work pretty good under my unpadded bibs. Don't know the model, but the pad is orange.
I'm almost positive that these are the ones-

You might as well just buy the regular cycling shorts instead of liners. The chamois is much better. You can still wear your regular "gym" shorts over them. Someday, if you are ready to ditch the gym shorts, then you will already have the regular cycling shorts ready to go....

If modesty is an issue, get the ones with thicker fabric (cheaper ones have thin fabric, and in bright sun, a definite "crack shadow" can be seen from behind). and longer legs.

Stay with black and not-shiny. It works fine.

kilt

i have shorts and liners. shorts are much better. if you are worried about wandering around after getting off the bike... i recently started wearing kilts and now think this is a lightweight, comfy, cool garment for modesty. acryllic kilts are really cheap and lightweight. if you want to change out of your shorts after a ride, a kilt is something to wear for that purpose, also.

Well, yes and no. Chamois quality varies by brand, and some liners have good ones, like the MEC liners I've been wearing for years. Generally, liners are lighter and cooler under shorts and much cheaper than regular bike shorts. Both are good, but I prefer the liners.

i got distracted and forgot to mention that my favorite padded shorts and liners are from pearl izumi. i have some nashbar and other shorts, but i like the pearl izumi best. it is worth the extra cost to have good shorts that will keep you in the saddle.
