Anyone used them? I like the Nalini chamois and thought these might be OK but have never heard any comments on them

I got some a few months ago and they seem decent for the money. A bit less cool in hot weather than my Coolmax Giordanas. In terms on length they are a tad on the short side (but I'm on the tall and skinny side). The chamois is good--so many shorts have seem to have overengineered chamois lately.
glad someone agrees!DaveG

I agree, these new super-hi-tech, multi-shaped, multi-thickness chamois just suck (IMO). What problem are they trying to solve? I may try the Excel's. I have also had good success with the Giordana's (not tried the new CP4 chamois though) as these use a "low-tech" single thickness pad.
