Rated 1 out of 5 by aar4 Very poorly designed
The "padded seat" is actually a loose-hanging diaper device that makes these shorts awkward to put on, and it feels like a diaper when you're walking. Also, the waist is not adjustable, and the sizing #"40-42"# is approximate, so you need a belt with a buckle #not included#. Finally, the large pockets are not secured, and the zippered pockets are small.
I returned this item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PeteinMA Nice shorts, the sizing is off...
I really like these shorts, but like many have pointed out the sizes don't run anywhere near true. The first pair I got were huge, way too big. So trade down one size.

If you feel the need for bike shorts get a good pair from a cycle company. I bought these on a real good sale so cannot complain too loudly but not enough padding and ignore the zippers, they'll just rip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 101MAN Great fit and look.
These short are just what I was looking for. I wanted some comfort on long bike rides. Added advantage you can remove the padded spandex like shorts and just wear the outer shorts that are very light and comfortable. Good looking with zipper pockets. I ordered size large, I am a 36-37 waist and they fit me perfectly. Great prize for a great pair of biker shorts.

I was pleased to have the opportunity to get LL Bean quality at a reduced price. January is not the best time for riding with shorts where I live. I've tried them on and I am pleased with the quality and fit. I look forward to spring.

These shorts were enormous. The size does not match regular shorts sizing. The lining was floppy and loose and the padding was not comfortable. Actually, had to return them.

Every gear head I know has been told that these are exceedingly good value for the commuter biker type here in the city. I bought three pairs. On sale? Even better then.

Great improvements over prior design, very comfortable and removable padded liner, and the pockets are great for iphone, money etc, much improved zippers !

The medium size waist band that I originally ordered measured 39" (advertised as 32"-34" waist) from snap to snap closure; although, It has an elastic band that has several eyelets that can be adjusted about 4" smaller with two buttons on the waist band. The small size waist band measures 34" (advertised as 28"-30" waist). My current waist size is 35", but was still able to fit into the small. btw, shorts have nicely padded interior where your bottom meets the bike saddle. Hope this helps others.

I didn't realize when I purchased these shorts that they were a pant within a pant. After they arrived I was delighted with the style and and the usefulness of the design. For an older person they are especially comfortable and modest.
