Rated 5 out of 5 by luvstoride Super comfortable, excellent fit
These bike shorts are the first I have ever purchased, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the comfort of both the liner with the padding, and the outer shorts. The fit is perfect, true to size, not too bulky, not too tight. Our first test ride was seven miles, and very comfortable in all the right places! I would buy these again in a heartbeat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bikerchick64 As named COMFORTABLE
These shorts are very comfortable. The chamois is more comfortable than others I own. The shorts aren't really stylish but I'm old. I bought them to wear with or without the chamois for an upcoming trip to Thailand. They are made of a fast drying material and perfect for washing in the sink. I have some bike rides planned in Thailand so then I will need the chamois. I'm very happy with the pockets. Other biking clothes I own have very little storage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nurselaila Too much going on
I bought these because I wanted a pair of bike shorts that didn't look like bike shorts. After reading all the great reviews, I settled on these. First of all, they definitly do run large. I wear a 12 and the large was too big. Secondly, unless you are slim, I think they make you look heavy. There is the liner with the large pad and then the shorts over it which are quite long and baggy. Just too much bulk for my taste. I retuned them and will look for something slightly more fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bean23 Great cycling shorts
I love these bike shorts. I hope LL Bean decides to offer them in other colors, as I would buy more.
They are comfortable and can easily pass for "regular" shorts if you want to wear them after a bike ride.
As others have commented, they do tend to run "big," but I am happy with the fit. I normally wear size 12-14 and the "Large" fit just fine. Overall, they are a great value, well worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maine293 Quality bike shorts
Love these shorts. They have the same comfort as my old spandex shorts but are more figure flattering. Highly recommend. They do run big so order the next smallest size.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great biking shorts!
After reading the reviews, I ordered a pair of these shorts and have been extremely please. They fit was true to size for me and the comfort fantastic. Love having the inner removable padding and the outer shorts are great looking. Love feeling comfortable going in for a bite to eat after a long bike ride. Will order a second pair. Wish there was a color option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappeeCamper Comfortable and good looking
I'm very happy with these shorts. The fit is trim, yet they move well with you when biking and look nice enough to wear into a restaurant, or just walk around town afterwards. Also suitable for hiking; they look and fit great without the liner too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NEtoMW Comfortable, attractive bicycling option
I was a little concerned on the sizing (what to order) as I have a pair from approx. 3 years ago that fit great. The narrative says they now have a more trim cut - but they still run quite large. I wear an 8 (occasionally a 10) in a short and the SMALL in these shorts still fits fine. Perhaps there was a color option before - but they now are more 'black' than my other pair (which I would call a charcoal gray). Even with the liner, I am comfortable wearing these into a store after biking - they look more like a street short. (and I am past the age of walking around in spandex!) Will also be ordering the capris (which I also have from a few years ago).

Same cycling shorts I ordered last year. This year the material was
not nearly as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crayolagirl61 Almost Perfect
I love love love these shorts. They are the most comfortable best quality bike shorts I have found yet. Who ever did the redesign, thank you. I love the new material and design of the outer shorts. I would wear these as shorts without liner. If I could have two small design tweaks they would be 1) thicker and longer in the front chamois pad and 2) side pocket zippers that zip up to close and down to open. My shorts work the opposite and it confuses my hands. No real complaints. Like the title says nearly perfect. i am buying another pair they are so comfortable. Thank you for the great bike shorts!
