No odder than discussing chamois butter with random strangers when working in a shop! I’ve tried a few models and the Saxx Kinetic in the regular or long length is what I recommend as a starting point. I have a pair of the Strike model which has a more lycra/compression feel and I like them - and know a couple riders who prefer them - but I like the looser-but-supportive Kinetic. I haven’t tried the Volt yet to see if the breathability is better. In terms of over shorts, I wear them with lightweight Race Face baggies, mid-weight soft shell knickers, and Race Face Agent pants - all good.  Saddle, and saddle adjustment, are maybe more key. Any saddle I’ve tested for NSMB has been sans-chamois. These days I’m usually on a WTB Deva Race (top end padding and cover but Chromo rails instead of Ti on Team to save $$).
