Are they REI Shorts..If they are exchange them.
One thing I learned a long time ago is never ever buy house brand and or cheap cycling shorts. It like a sleeping bag, you get what you pay for. Also those one sized thick chamois things don't work either. The presicion cut anatomically specific and egro cut shorts are the best. I also had chamois probelms untill I went to bib shorts, I have not looked back since. Hope this helps
I miss my 4.8lb base weight as a ground dweller. But I sure don't miss the ground.
