In a test as lengthy as this, a natural pecking order usually emerges.
The best shorts get saved for best, the less pleasing only get dug out of the cupboard when everything else is in the wash, and then there are the shorts that get used day in, day out.
These from Giordana are most definitely the latter type, with a superb fit, decent pad and no-frills design making them my go-to shorts for the work commute.
Not in the same league as the more expensive models when it comes to four or more hours in the saddle, but as training shorts, comfy enough for two to three hours and offering superb value.
