Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Transition Shorts:

Overall I do like these shorts. They offer padding where you need it for those longer rides, and they look good too

The problem I have with them is that I've only worn them around ten times and there already rips in the inner liner where the snaps to hold them in the shell. For some reason they sewed the loop onto the thin breathable part instead of the thick elastic band part just above it.

In short I've got fairly new shorts with two rips just above the loop that attaches the shell with the liner.

My next set of riding shorts will be the inner part only and I'll just wear normal shorts over them... or the shell from this set.

Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Transition Shorts:

comfortable, light and airy material, great for biking.
sizing a issue for me...the medium is suppose to be 32-34 waist size...i measured them at 35.5. and the small is a 29-31, so to match a 32 waist, the side straps have to be pulled tight to get a good fit...then the material bunches at the waist.

Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Transition Shorts:

I liked these shorts enough to buy a second pair. I prefer the non-spandex look for my mountain boing and these shorts are just my style. I have been using Fox shorts which had the chamois sewn in and was concerned that the detachable style may not work as well - but these shorts give me room to move and don't get caught on the seat while shifting position. My only complaint is that the Medium seemed a bit tight especially in the chamois.

The ability to detach the chamois and wear them as causal shorts is a real plus.

Very good shorts for riding and travel

        Good shorts for riding. Fit well. They are very good for travel riding when you may need pockets to hold keys, wallet and phone. Other, Like Pearl Izumi are good for riding but terrible for pockets.

                I just got the email to review these biking shorts as i returned home from a long weekend of biking and hiking. Not many miles but the shorts got a good workout on their first "real world" trip. The padding was very comfortable and I changed the EMS padded briefs that come with these shorts (after wearing them for two days) with my own padded brief and though it didn't hook to the shorts the combo worked out well. I also purchased a pair of evolution shorts that I have yet to wear but these should prove to work well I'm sure.

                    Stylish, but wish these shorts had been available in grey, and not black only. The waist was somewhat loose around the waist, but I'm able to cinch them up to a comfortable fit.

                        I like the biking shorts but there is flaw; the cushioned pad was stitched backwards: the back part is facing the front side of the short and the front part of the pad is stitched to the back side of the short.

                            Overall the shorts are comfortable. I got them on sale. I likely would not have paid full price for them. I wished they had zippered hip pockets or zide pockets. I realize hook and loop pockets are cheaper to produce, but while cycling any contents will tend to fall out of those type of pockets. They fit well otherwise and I expect will hold up.
