Rated 4 out of 5 by SoEastNH Good Shorts
These shorts are comfortable for riding or walking around and have good pockets. The largest one fits my iphone 6 no problem. The padded liner comes out which is nice as you can use it with other shorts or tights, now that it is cool.

I had been wearing a pair of Bean bike shorts for quite a few years. The short coming of them was the lack of secure pockets. I do not often think of Bean for biking wear, but after checking the local bike shops for something other than the spandex the younger bikers (I am a "senior") wear I found these. Been using them for several months and hundreds of miles.
The pluses far out weigh the few minor issues for these shorts.
Plus: The back and thigh zippered pockets. The thigh pocket is perfect for my i6 phone and the back secures my id--wallet, whatever.
The padding is superb.
The unzippered front pockets are good for extra items.
Minus: The teeny-tiny zippered pockets that compete for room in the front pockets. I'd need a tweezers or forceps to retrieve anything from them. In the next model take them out.
The loosely buttoned in padding always gave me fits when I left them buttoned to the outer shorts. Finally unbuttoned them and do the operation in two steps. Also can wear the padded insert with other shorts if so desired.
All my biking is on either paved trails or local roads with very light traffic. On the edge of the Twin City metro with great trails and ditto for local and county roads. >1000 miles/yr

Rated 4 out of 5 by jlmack Pretty good bike shorts
They are very comfortable. They fit well (size large for 38" waist), look good, and are holding up well, though I've only had them a short time and can't really judge their durability. The inner shorts work well and are removable. The only problems I've had at all are (1) the padding in the inner shorts seems a bit bulky, and (2) the shorts have almost caught a few times on my seat post clamp down. It might be that if they were just a bit tighter they wouldn't catch at all, but I do like it that they are not tight. Overall I'm quite happy with them and would buy them again, though I've inserted the caveat that I've not had them long enough to judge their durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PETRMOO Men's Comfort Cycling Shorts
Well made. I road 100 mile race recently, great comfort but... I am 280 pounds and normally wear size 38-40 waist products, I ordered the XL size. I had a little trouble making these shorts tight enough. The elastic strip and an ability to wear a belt helped me NOT "moon" other riders and spectators. These are definitely NOT tight like a club jersey or typical bike shorts. I will just modify the design for my personal needs. I expect years of use and I am really hard on clothing!

I wear a size 32 waist. I ordered a medium which is the size specified for my waist. These were at least a 36 if not more. Pockets were far to small to hold anything without worrying about it falling out. They seemed very well built which does not mean much unless they get the sizing and design correct.

Rated 1 out of 5 by peterkc Poor design, too long
Liner has elastic waist, outer shorts require a belt. Clumsy snap tabs attach liner to outer shorts
Black shorts make no sense for a sunny summer day, especially when they are too long for good ventilation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Leash Nice Quality, poor fit for me
I like these cycling shorts except that they do not fit me very well at all. I am a 33 waist and ordered the medium, but both the liners and the shorts are very loose. I found them to get hung up on the seat. I am going to return, but am seriously thinking about exchanging for the smalls. The quality seems good, but being loose does not help.
Would recommend if they fit the individual.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cyclebum Good construction, but too too big.
My husband wears a 30 waist, so we ordered the small. They fit like a medium. We had to send them back. The construction seemed good however. One thing I would like to point out is that the exterior shorts and the interior padded shorts can be worn separately from each other. The shorts were not lightweight like I thought they might be -- fairly heavy material. And the inseam was longer than I thought it would be. My husband is 5'7 and these came down to the top of his knees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by memphisrider SUPER versatile bike shorts
Nice to wear all together or just take the insert out and use with our bikes rides. Wash well, both pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stevetexas Good enough
The style of these shorts is just what I wanted; a cycling shorts liner under regular shorts. The medium size I bought fits fine now. But it feels like the elastic waist band may stretch out over time, we'll see. While the pockets are a little small, the reality is I don't need to carry that much in them; credit cards, license, & cash. So they are fine for my purposes. All in all, I'm satisfied with these shorts and look forward to many comfortable rides.
