Great improvements over prior design, very comfortable and removable padded liner, and the pockets are great for iphone, money etc, much improved zippers !

The medium size waist band that I originally ordered measured 39" (advertised as 32"-34" waist) from snap to snap closure; although, It has an elastic band that has several eyelets that can be adjusted about 4" smaller with two buttons on the waist band. The small size waist band measures 34" (advertised as 28"-30" waist). My current waist size is 35", but was still able to fit into the small. btw, shorts have nicely padded interior where your bottom meets the bike saddle. Hope this helps others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 50sumthng Great IDEA
I didn't realize when I purchased these shorts that they were a pant within a pant. After they arrived I was delighted with the style and and the usefulness of the design. For an older person they are especially comfortable and modest.

Rated 2 out of 5 by KCcyclist Didn't work for me!
I liked the idea of these shorts and they seem well made. The women's version was fine for my wife, but for me the large size was way too big for me and the medium size just a little too small, so I didn't keep either! Too bad.

I've tried a couple different types of biking shorts and these are easily the best yet. I wear a Medium and these fit perfect. The padding is good. I like the size and depth of the front pockets. For my purposes these shorts are everything I need.

I have a 31 inch waist, was told to order med. They came at 36 inches. Sent those back for small, waist was ok, but cycling shorts were too tight and were skimpy on padding. Outer shorts were fine. This is a difficult fit. I would say, look for another product. LL Bean is as great company, as always.

My husband wears size Large - these were HUGE, not even close to fitting. If you're going to buy these I would strongly suggest sizing down.

I bought these shorts for cycling, but since the liner is removable, I also plan to wear them when golfing. I bought both the medium and large and found the large fit better. I'm normally a 36", but may be showing a few signs of craft beer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EMB1975 Good, but sizing odd
I purchased these because they were on sale and I was getting ready for a long bike ride. Overall they are comfortable and I would recommend them. However, when ordering, be cautioned that sizing may surprise you. LL Bean sizing is normally off for me compared to other retailers. If I'm a Large somewhere else I'm almost always a Medium at LLB. I've lost weight recently and figured a Medium would be perfect, but they were too big. I have a 32 or 33 inch waist and I fit into a Small of these shorts. Don't understand it, but once I got that sorted out they were fine and I just road tested them on a 100 mile ride and they were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clearancerackqueen More colors please!
My husband cycles, runs and teaches PE in a high school and he loves these shorts. He was just telling me the other day how much he liked them. I would love to order him another pair but they only come in one color so L.L. Bean, please offer these in some more colors like brown, navy or gray. Thank you.
