take it on the ride

I bought these . The liner is thick and once You are on your seat you have enough padding for a medium distance to long distance. Pockets are small. I did buy another pair of liners for my fox shorts which is my favorite. Zoic no belt needed . I use a three pocket shirt to hold wallet and other things that don't fit in these shorts. A quick grab and go short.

LOVE these shorts !!! Awesome AAA+++

My cousin told me to buy these shorts for mountain biking and I went to the site and they looked pretty cool but I wasnt convinced until they arrived and I tried them on. I am a large rider and I couldnt believe that these shorts fit me so good. They are extremely comfortable and the pockets to be able to store my phone and other items are invaluable. ZOIC really did their homework on these shorts because they are cut just right and they are solid but lightweight. I really love these shorts for riding.

9" Ether---5 Flames!

I have 3 pair and intend to buy more. My favorite MTB shorts. I also wear them, sans liner, to the gym. I even do my cardio workouts in them, they are not only styl'n, they perform very well.

I have a 35" waist and the XLs fit great...the adjustable waistband has much to do with that but there is enough room for my seat and legs as well and that is usually a problem for me. For instance, Pearl Izumis do not fit me and most of Fox's shorts do not as well. I hope this helps all you clydesdales out there.

Most of all, I love the shorter length! Hell, I'm an old school beach volleyball player so I could go to a 5" inseam and be happy...JK, 9" is good, and more appropriate.
