Rated 5 out of 5 by bolt208 Terry Actif Cycling Shorts
I bought 2 pair of riding shorts from L.. L. Bean. One has a pair of shorts over the biking shorts and the Terry Actif shorts.
These are the better of the 2. They fit like a glove and the padding fits me perfectly. The legs do not slide up and they are so comfortable I don't feel like I am wearing anything but regular shorts. I have been riding about 10-15 miles each day using these shorts.
They feel good and wash well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wisconsinrabbit sizing chart needs work but the shorts are great
Based on the sizing chart I almost got the large because my waist suggested a large even though my hips suggested a medium. I'm really glad I got the medium because the waist is fine. I love the shorts, especially the wide bands on the legs as an alternative to elastic which I'm allergic to and to silicone grippers which give me heat rash. These are super comfortable.

I did not want to buy biking shorts for the longest time! I finally gave in since I am increasing the length of my rides. When I signed up for a 37-mile charity ride and didn't want a sore butt, I knew it was time! These really helped and were comfortable. They felt soft and did not ride up. I love the fact that they basically reach my knees and stay put! It ended up the hottest day of the year so far for my ride. It was over 90 degrees when I finished and still going up. The shorts kept me cool AND comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by klbee Great short for around town!
I haven't received my order yet, but I already own a pair of these Terry Shorts (this specific model) so I was very happy to see LL Bean now carrying them. I ordered them as soon as I saw them on the website! These have a minimal chamois. Great for around town or a few hours ride. I don't know if these would be my choice for touring but for everything else they are great. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the legs don't really "grip." They are not a compression short but they could grip a little better. I'm between a small and med. so my current shorts are medium and the only complaint is that the legs do tend to ride up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by indylegomom Comfortable great fit.
These are so much more comfortable. No itchy drawstring at the waist and light weight.

I purchased these shorts based on the fact that I already own several Terry shorts. The fit is comfortable. They did ride up a bit when riding but that might be because I ordered a large and might have been able to wear a medium. I usually do wear a large in cycling shorts so these are probably cut larger. They are a perfect length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lynnet Comfortable, so far!
I've done a 45 mile ride in these shorts and so far, so good, but I definitely reserve my overall opinion until I've worn them more on longer rides.
Hopefully they will stand up to long rides over many days.
