Rated 4 out of 5áby esolteacher Dual purpose, runs large
These shorts are perfect for those of us who want the comfort of bike shorts without the discomfort of displaying our not-so-svelte thighs. The inner shorts have the chamois needed for seat comfort, and the outer shorts make sure the inner shorts are never seen. Plus, the outer shorts are wonderful on their own, so it's a twofer. Taking the advice of other reviewers, I ordered the small even though I wear a medium in every other Bean product. The small fits well.

Rated 3 out of 5áby phoebe1 Different fabric
I ordered this exact same pair of shorts last year and the outer black fabric was sort of crisp. I wear them in and out of my kayak and they look great all day long. The pair I received this year is completely different fabric...more stretchy, less crisp. Sometimes change is not a good thing!

I do like these shorts very much BUT they need to be a little longer! When you sit on the bike, they ride up too much. They should definitely be lengthened a few inches. They are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Shirneen Best Biking Shorts
These shorts are awesome! The inner short and padding is just enough so that you don't feel you are wearing a diaper. Did 16 miles with no discomfort at all. They do run big. I am 5'4' and weight 145. I bought the small and they are roomy. I wear the outer shorts for golf and anything casual. Great pocket on the leg which is just the right size for my iphone. How anyone could be confused about how to wash them and put them together is beyond me. I throw the inner shorts on and pull the outer shorts over them. There is really NO NEED to snap them together. Just here to buy a second pair. Try them, you won't be disappointed! I do not want to pa $85 for biking shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Spiffypaws Very comfortable
The sizing ran large but shorts are very comfortable, padding is perfect and I love the pockets. Love that the liner is detachable. I think these would be great for travel.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mweedon good fit for baby boomers
Unlike so many shorts (and pants) these days, the Comfort Cycling Shorts are a good fit -- not too loose in waist and not too tight in hips. The outer short is made of a nice material and I will use them with and without the innner padded short -- for cycling, for walking, maybe even for playing pickle ball. I was pleased that the legs on the inner short did not ride up when I rode my bike. This is an attractive short when I don't want the hard-core lycra look. I like the length and pockets.

Rated 2 out of 5áby ChgoBiker Odd shorts
Why the removable liner? Would anyone ever really remove the liner & wear these as regular shorts? Why not just wear regular shorts? If the liner is dirty, so are the shorts, so would be laundering them at the same time.
Bought a pair of casual padded bike shorts from Bean a couple years ago. I love those shorts but seems Bean doesn't carry them anymore. Thought these would be simlar but the whole removable liner thing is just.. odd
1) Inseam should be about 1" longer
2) Short should just be padded, not removable liner.

Rated 5 out of 5áby llbeanenthusiastic Terrific Cycle shorts!
I'm a 60 year old women who does not feel comfortable wearing spandex cycle shorts. Thus, this shorts/ spandex combination was the answer to my dilemma: The padded spandex are comfortable under the cycle shorts. The shorts fabric is light weight, but substantial. I love the zippered pocket in them. A great idea LLBean had in this combination! The shorts also look great if worn alone. I only wish they came in a khaki color for women.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Circa1953 The Best Shorts!
I purchased these shorts last year after reading reviews on what size to order. Buying SMALL was the target size. They are ideal for anyone who lives in shorts all summer. I have given up using a purse during the summer because the convenient zippered pockets hold all my credentials, keys, lip gloss and phone. The shorts are a perfect fit for my busy lifestyle. I am reserving the liner shorts for biking. I bought more this summer. Owning 6 pairs of these black shorts is great! I do wish they were available in different colors.
