Rated 5 out of 5 by MDcycler Great Buy
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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lovemybicycle Still great shorts -- maybe even better
Several years ago, I purchased these shorts because they (1) are actually designed as bermuda shorts, (2) have a removable padded lining, (3) are made from moisture-wicking material, (4) have plenty of pockets, and (5) are reasonable priced. After losing some weight, I recently purchased a smaller size (they do run large), and I found they are just as good as they always were. Maybe even better because two side pockets now have zippers, too. Love these shorts!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by undercat Good padding
These have really alleviated my lower back pain I'd experience after a ride. Seem to be well made. Pockets are big enough to be useful.
Wish they were one inch shorter (for that they get four stars instead of five). Wish they had another color and would buy a long pair if they had them. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by molliegirl Amazingly Perfect!
For everyone who reviewed these and talked about sizing, thank you! I usually wear a size 12 in jeans, sometimes a 14, but to describe how they fit was most important. I am very hippy and have large thighs as well. Even after pondering over all of the reviews, I still ordered a large, thinking no way a medium could fit me. My waist is a full 34 to 35 inches, so in reality I should have ordered an extra large by the size chart. When I received the size large and tried them on, they were indeed too big. So I did return them for a medium (which I never am able to wear) and they fit beautifully, both the chamois insert and the shorts themselves.The chamois insert has little snap loop attachments on each side where they attach to the shorts, and the insert is easily removable from the shorts. I have never worn regular bike shorts with the chamois insert, but have tried them on in bike shops and found them to be way too "bulky." This chamois has ample cushioning in all the right places and doesn't feel like you are carrying around a wad of foam rubber between your legs! Pardon my graphic description! The shorts have zippered pockets on each side, and another zippered pocket lower on the thigh like a cargo style short, plus at least one back pocket as well. (I can't remember at the moment if there are two pockets in the back or not.) These bike shorts are certainly nice enough to wear anywhere and actually look slimming. The waist adjustment on the inside has at least 2 to 3 adjustments (button holes) on each side to customize the fit. I would order these again in a wheat or khaki color if they decided to do other colors, great comfortable fit, they wash beautifully too! Delivery was also amazingly fast, 2 business days and I had them home! I'm a very happy and comfortable cyclist now!
