Versatile, durable, and well fitting.

I was skeptical paying $100+ for a pair of shorts as I’m usually the guy wearing shorts from the thrift store; however, I’m incredibly satisfied with these!! I’ve worn them on 10 singletrack bike rides totaling over 40hrs in the saddle, and have absolutely zero complaints. I’ve experimented and haven’t washed them yet and they’ve legitimately got zero odor, which is a testament to the product because I’m a sweaty dude. Hoping they come back in stock soon so I can snag a second pair. Regarding the fit, I’m 6’0” 220 lbs and wear 34s which fit almost perfectly with exception of the waist. Wearing a lightweight belt to me is a justifiable compromise given how functional these are.

Best shorts overall

Took me a while to pull the trigger on these but worth every penny. Bomb proof material. Ended up getting another color afterwards (Olive and Slate). Fit is perfect and the stretch is even better. Back pocket has zipper to keep everything safe which I love. Waiting to see what other colors they come up next. Bring back the Sage!!

Christmas Gift

This was a gift for my son who is an avid bike rider and works at U-Bikes in Boulder, CO. He sent me the specifics for this order and was super excited when he opened his gift on Christmas morning! I personally love all that your company stands for and does for the environment, kudos!

A Great Pair of Biking Shorts

Although these shorts were ordered earlier in December, I had to wait for Santa to come before I could actually wear them. I was very pleased to see that there was some recycled material in the pants and at some point would like to see some merino wool incorporated into the shorts for cooler weather. Regardless, I do like the fact that the stretch some and are slimmer than other bike shorts. I've used them for biking while running errands around town as well as on longer rides into the surrounding area. They easily transition to hiking and running shorts and I appreciate the zipper pocket in the back. If there was one thing I could change, I would make the belt loops slightly thinner. Otherwise, I really appreciate the quality of this pants. Well done!
