Excellent, functional bike shorts, couple dumb mistakes

Reviewed by Abe from Park City, UT on Wednesday, May 8, 2013
These shorts are overall fantastic, comfortable, form fitting enough that they don't interfere with biking but loose enough that they look good/ don't parade your junk. The padding works really well, material on outer pant is very tough, didn't tear or scratch on some pretty gnarly wipeouts. The problems, which could easily have been avoided in designing these shorts, are first that the waist is too tight/ not adjustable, I am 5'11" 170 and pretty lean, the medium fits me perfectly (legs come to bout an inch above my knee, they fit n look great) but I have to pull the waist tight and suck it in to button, you would have to be very freakishly skinny to have the waist fit properly, that said they still work great just could use another half inch around waist. The really dumb mistake is that the under layer pant doesn't detach from the outer pant! The inside pant gets very sweaty and gross and need to be washed often while you would never really need to wash the outer layer, just means I wash the under layer by hand. All of my petty [...]ing aside they are great shorts, I don't regret buying them and use them almost every day, if your on the fence just buy them, especially if you're skinny!
