Several things come to mind such as I think they have something like said shorts for cyclists though possibly not aimed at saving one when they prang.
Other point is that once again when you go to take a leak you end up with doing it like a woman in that you must pull off the gear & squat like a woman, if doing it behind some bush & not the zipper length--which is a big downfall of present fly zippers in being way to short, let alone any proper zipper length, so one zip down & pull out the male hose to stand like a man & take a leak. That squating down, I do not like.
Lastly I am very keen on being & smelling very clean, a thing I picked up from an ex-g/f being Chinese & from Hong Kong. I ended up trying to be super clean even to my own mind.
That means at home that evening I toss my shorts into the washer along with some others to be washed with like T-shirt, sweat shirt, trouser & whatever. Meaning I would not feel clean if I was wearing the same shorts (protective shorts) as I did the day before.
Not that I dribble, or leak but also know we prespire & body oder goes on clothing & stays there till washed. I never wear the same gym clothing the next time I come to the gym.
As I am a non-smoker & have been so all my life, IF(?) I have left the shorts, T-Shirt, sweat-shirt or such around, when I was possibly up at the Gun Club Lounge when just ONE person was smoking & man what a smell the next morning & even if I did toss them in the clothing hamper I can smell that spent tobacco oder as I pass it to the washroom. Now no one smokes at our Range.
So how much would 6 or 8 of these protective shorts cost me, especially in Cdn dollars, shipping, & Cdn Customs???????
Yes I have several pairs of m/c jackets, trousers & such to even two crash helmets & while I wear one on Monday I will wear the other on Tuesday to let the other become aired for Wednesday.
