    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Shadow Bike Shorts:

    Overall these shorts run a little small - waist is adjustable with tabs so think about ordering one size up from your usual. Very comfortable on my bike and still look nice enough to wear around town.

      My sister bought a pair of these last week when her luggage didn't arrive in NYC and we had the 5 boro bike ride the next day. She couldn't stop raving about how comfortable they were and how the pockets were perfect because she couldn't even feel her camera as she rode. So I got them too!

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Shadow Bike Shorts:

      Love the fabric, the under shorts fit perfectly and do the job, as I bike a lot but do not like the spandex gear most bikers wear. The fabric, design and color are great, but I am an older woman and would like the shorts to be longer, just above the knee. My only complaint. I would definely buy a pair of longer shorts, all elsethe same.

      great shorts for biking and hiking

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Shadow Bike Shorts:

          These bike shorts are extremely comfortable and the inner lining can be easily removed to use the shorts for hiking, walking or casual dressing. The material is light, stretchy and easily packed. The zipped pockets are great for carrying cell phones on the side of your leg rather than on the top of the thigh where it can be uncomfortable while riding or hiking. I bought a second pair after wearing them for the first time and have worn them non-stop for the past month.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Shadow Bike Shorts:

            These shorts fit great, are comfortable and I love them for touring around on days when I don't feel like going "all out spandex." I can pop in to stores, cafes, pubs without feeling conspicuous in bike shorts.

            The pockets, while nicely flat and safely zippered, are a bit awkward as you reach in at the side of your thighs towards the back.

            All in all though, a great pair of shorts!

                  I bought these shorts to take on a bike trip this summer and found them to be true to size, stylish and a great product overall. The inner bike short lining with seat pad is removable, making these shorts very versatile. Nice pockets too. Great for travel or when you don't want to look like your wearing bike shorts!

                      For some reason, EMS bike shorts run really small. I ordered XL, and I couldn't even pull them over my hips. I typically wear size large bike shorts. Other companies provide free return shipping, unlike EMS. So it cost me a bundle to send them back. It is unlikely that I will ever purchase clothing from EMS again.
                      If you want these shorts, buy at least 2 sizes larger than you normally wear, and hope for the best.

                          Ever notice the dreaded "LuLu" effect in bike shorts? You know - too many washings/seasons/wearings - whatever - and the material begins to peek-a-boo. Being thrifty and modest, the risk of embarrassment was always lurking. But these great bike shorts put an end to that. They are sleek and form fitting so they don't flap in the wind like gym shorts. They have a removable mesh liner with biker pad so comfortable for long hours on the bike and there is no fear of going see-through! One drawback is that they do seem a bit warmer then regular biking shorts but not overly so.
