Rated 5 out of 5 by Cmm276 Comfortable and fit well
These are excellent biking shorts for someone that does not want to wear spandex. The fit is great and allows for a lot of movement when biking. The removable liner also allows for the short to be worn for hiking. I wear a size 10 and ordered a medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pup2016 Great Shorts!
I was a little hesitant to spend $60 on a pair of shorts but they are well worth it! I love these shorts! I first ordered a small but they were to big in the legs so I reordered an x-small and they fit perfect. They have the right amount of padding for riding a bike long distances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SABiker Very comfortable
As a rider in my 60's, I like the coverage these very comfortable biking shorts offer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by veterantraveler2 Cycling shorts too big
While the interior lining with pad was "just right" the shorts were way too big. I'm not sure how it would work to order a size smaller so I opted to return and not replace. Of course the quality was great but...

Rated 4 out of 5 by BuyGoodClothes Heavy duty cycling shorts
These are heavy duty cycling shorts. Being two separate pieces, one could wear just the liner. The padding is wonderful! I like that the outer piece is waist adjustable. They don't quite fit like I prefer, but for a long ride, they will be just fine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LOLady Cycling shorts
This was the third pair of these shorts that I have ordered, and I had enjoyed the comfort and versatility of the first two. I use them without the insert when I play Pickleball as well as for cycling. The third pair has zippers on the front pockets, which the previous pairs did not, and I find the zipper openings a little narrow for my hands to reach in easily, without scratching my hands. I still like the shorts, but would have preferred the old version without front zippers. These shorts are very comfortable otherwise and dry fast after washing.

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!
