Rated 5 out of 5 by readriderun The comfort you've been looking for
These are GREAT biking shorts. The outer shell is very flattering and has all the pockets you could ever want. I've never had a pair of shorts with so many pockets! There is an inner tab in the shorts that allows you to make the waist band smaller. I definitely used that as others have said...the shorts do run a bit large. I sometimes where a Large and other times an XL, depending on the style and manufacturer and I bought a large in these shorts and they are still a bit loose, even with the waist tabs on the smallest tab. I don't think, however, that a medium would provide me with the comfort I like for longer rides. The inner shorts with the padding are very comfortable and do exactly what they are designed to do! The only other thing I'd like would be another color in addition to the black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChgoGirl599 Best cycling shorts ever!
These shorts have great padding, the liner stays in place and the zipper pockets are just great. Plan to wear them every day on an upcoming cycling vacation. If more colors become available, I'll get them in every color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSUfaninMichigan Comfort cycling shorts
These are great shorts with zippered pockets. They do run a size big. I am a med person, the small fits perfectly. The length is great. Having the shorts over the spandex is wonderful for us senior riders. Because the padded liner comes out, I will take the shorts only on my next trip for hiking, or just wearing.

Love these shorts. The fit is great and they are very comfortable. I feel as though I'm getting two-for-one since the removeable liner can be used under a skort as well. The adjustable waist band assures I will be able to use these for a long time as my size continues to go down. Plenty of room in the zip pockets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SandyBeach510 Much more comfortable ride
During the summer at the beach, I am a leisurely bike rider. I don't race or go on all day trips. An hour bike ride around town used to be very uncomfortable even with a gel bike seat. Then I purchased these shorts on the advice of a neighbor. They definitely improved the comfort of the ride. I usually wear a size 10-12 but more 12 in shorts/pants. I purchased both the medium and large because I wasn't sure. The medium is fine. I sent back the large, which was much too big. I recommend these for a more comfortable, and thus, longer bike ride!

Rated 5 out of 5 by COSummerGal Love these Shorts!
Finally found a pair of bike shorts that aren't skintight, that fit perfectly, and are very comfortable. Normally wear a 12 bottom and these are right on. Love the zippers on the pockets to keep things from falling out. Have worn these cycling with the liner and they're perfect. Have also worn them without, just as shorts for around town errands. Well made, machine wash well (hand wash liner). Love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TillyBird Comfyshort ride shorts
The styling of these shorts are definitely more stylish & secure pockets. The padding on the bike shorts is fair, good for shorter rides. The fact that they are separate pieces is great, I'll wear these on my shorter rides & remove to replace with a more substantial pair of shorts for rides over 20miles. I would recommend these to a friend

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathie723 outstanding
Just what I was looking for. The adjustable waistband was only noticed after reading reviews.. it is not noted in the description or on the hang tags. This is a VERY important feature of these shorts since the waistband is a little loose. Otherwise all other features are perfect for the female biker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ElizaMD Run very large, not for hot weather
These shorts are essentially shorts within shorts - a removable inner layer, and an outer layer. This was too much fabric for the biking that I do, which mostly takes place in spring and summer in warmer climes. Also, the shorts ran extremely large. If you normally wear a medium, I would order a small or even a petite small.
