    So I told my dad about these today, that I was thinking of ordering him a pair, but I would have to wait until the ladies models are available to order some for myself. So what does he do? He ordered a pair without the code for the hat. You know, he could've at least used the code so I could have a hat to wear while waiting for the ladies' model to come out!! :fpalm I always need a good hat to cover my helmet hair. :)

    Stacy, No worries. We are a little behind on our shipping so I can add a hat to your order if it has not already been processed. Do you know what name the order would be under? Or the order #?

    Also, just FYI, we have sold several pair to women that are finding surprisingly good success with them. I just recently met up at the Overland Expo with Danell from 2Wheel Wanderlust, (http://www.2wheeledwanderlust.com/) We had given her a pair for her trips. I'll see if I can link to her review of them, but she was very pleased with how they worked for her.

    Thanks again for your support!!

    Ever Onward,

    I hope your question got answered in the thread, however just FYI, all you need to do to get uber-cool Moto-Skiveez® tri fold hat, is make sure you add the hat to your cart, then put "adv" in as the coupon code. That's it.

    Coupon still valid. Thanks for your interest! :clap:clap:clap:clap

    If any one is on the fence about these,get off your ass and buy them,I tried them out on my crf 450 x,what a difference they made,I'll be going on a two week road trip and report on their street ability.I didn't get the hat and don't care,that hat will never make my Honda comfortable like these shorts do.

    Luft, Thanks much for the endorsement! I'm glad you are liking your M-Skiveez. As for the hat....did you add it to the order? The "adv" code is still valid. If you PM me you order number or name I'll get one out for ya.

    And for anyone that is interested, you just need to add the hat to your shopping cart, and then enter 'adv' for coupon code. The coupon code discounts the cost of the hat. If you do not add the hat to your cart the coupon code does not automatically include it.

    Hope that clarifies things.

    Bit the bullet on the shipping to Canada and place my order. The reviews continue to be good, so it's definitely worth a try over the big $ for a new seat. :D

    I got a pair of the ADV version from Shawn at OE and wore them on my trip back to south Florida, almost 2500 miles. The biggest improvement for me was the "junk trunk". On the trip out I was wearing either Sedici stretch pants or ExOfficio briefs and Under Armor Heat Gear. These pants were killing me the entire trip out, putting way too much pressure on the family jewels. The pocket in the Moto-Skiveez completely eliminated that discomfort for me.

    As far as my butt comfort goes, I was using an Airhawk medium pad on the stock Stelvio seat so I was relatively comfortable. The addition of the pad in the Moto-Skiveez just made it more comfortable, to the point that the seat pressure didn't bother me at all. To complete on honest review, I am going to start wearing them with the stock seat and no pad on my daily 150 mile commute to work.

    I spent some time speaking with Shawn at OE and interviewing him for our show (Cafe Racer Podcast Overland Expo). I also talked to him about the materials and construction used in making the pad. The company that makes his pad is the same one that makes them for Assos. When it comes to cycling bibs quality, design, and construction become very important if you spent hours in the saddle. I have Assos bibs that I've spent close to $200 for. This was after trying every other bargain brand out there. I didn't want to spend that kind of money on a pair of bicycle shorts until my cousin who raced for Jamis convinced me. The change to a high quality pad made all the difference for me when it came to seat time.

    When walking around in the shorts I didn't find them to be any more uncomfortable than cycling bibs. I did have a lot of room to move with them as I was wearing them under a pair of Olympia X-Moto pants and not something more restrictive.

    Would I buy these again? Yes. I plan on getting a pair of the sport bike version to try with my V11.

    I'll post a more thorough review on our site once I spent more time commuting in them.

    Thanks for the write up. I listened to your podcast interview and decided to look them up and give them a try. I've been a long time LD Comfort wearer so I'm curious to make the comparison. Also, I use a beadrider during the summer so I'll give that perspective as well.

    Travman, thanks for the order. I'm interested to get your feedback. LD is a very good product. We are just a different option to the same problem. As is your beadrider. Obviously there are alot of options for this very common problem. Thanks again for the support.

    I can always look into it. Do you have a better description of perhaps what you are looking for? Maybe a link to something?

    yeah, boonie hat ect.. i love that you offer a baseball cap but i dont wear them and they arent good for much for sun protection anyway. boonie hat can be rolled up and stuffed into almost anything.

    thanks for the reply and thanks for the open mind

    What would you recommend for a 2009 Kawasaki ER6N (naked 650r with bar risers)? It has a semi-standard seating position and 1 piece seat, I would hope a small pair would fit a 4'11" 98lb female lol, she has a small pair of padded bike shorts we tried out on our last big ride that fit her.

    Thanks

    I think the best option, as far a style, would be the ADVENTURE. We're working diligently for a women's model. Stay tuned......

    Thanks for considering Moto-Skiveez®.
