These shorts are sold in men’s alpha sizes. We pulled sizing information from Icon’s website and it was different from the sizing stamped on the product packaging (at least it was at the time of this writing). After reviewing the sizing of the actual product, we find the sizing on the packaging to be accurate. The sizing below shows the approximate waist range for each size short.

Our Two Cents
The material used to make these shorts is very similar to the material commonly used in the crotch and inside-arm area of sport jackets and suits. It’s a thick, durable, stretchy fabric and feels like it would do a good job with abrasion resistance. These shorts used as underwear would greatly help with abrasion resistance when wearing denim—certainly better than cotton boxers! The inside is lined with a soft nylon mesh fabric and the crotch area has a panel of vented material built in to help keep you comfortable.
From the Icon Site: Form fitting, highly abrasion resistant, padded and vented, why wouldn’t you rock the FA2 short under your favorite riding pants? The Aramid impact zones are designed to take over when your pants are pushed past their limit. The vented and padded crotch takes over on those 500+ mile twisty riding days. Concealed protective comfort, now you’ve got a reason.

As for the gear..... the Alpinestars knee guards are very comfortable and seem like they would do a good job of protecting my knees in a crash. The Icon shorts are nice and comfy -- especially the padded area in the crotch. (Read more...)
