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

      I bought these shorts because I needed something that I could ride my bike with but also walk around school afterward. I didn't want to have to carry another pair of shorts with me. These shorts hold up to their name. They transition well from bike wear to casual wear. They are breathable and very comfortable. The only thing is that I would prefer if they were a little longer in the legs and had hand pockets near the hip.

      Pros

      • Breathable
      • Comfortable
      • No Hand Pockets
      • Stretchy
      • Washes Well

      Cons

      • Catches On Saddle
      • Seams Fail
      • Too Short With Knee Pads

      Best Uses

      • Biking
      • Hiking

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

      these are decent bike shorts but better hiking shorts.

      I destroyed a liner in one season of use, much of the stitching came out around the waist. The liner is quite breathable and has good padding.

      I have destroyed the crotch seams on the short in a season and a half of riding. this area of the short is stretchy and often catches on the saddle when going down. The stretchy material is awesome on the rest of the short but not slippery, which is why it catches. For biking i cut off each side cargo pocket as I never put things in them.

      Far and away the best use for this short (minus the liner) is hiking. comfortable, fast drying and lets you move. plus not having hip pockets (i kept the side pockets on my hiking pair) and a built in belt makes them work great for long days with heavy packs - no bunching or chafing.

      If EMS beefed up the quality of the construction on these and changed the fabric in the crotch to a slippery, less stretchy material these would go from 3.5* to 5*

      Just what I was looking for

      By Gramps

      from East Coast

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Washes Well

      Cons

        Best Uses

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

          The good:

          - Stretchy outer short
          - Adequate, but not too much, padding
          - Good finish
          - Liner is removable
          - Liner seems to breathe reasonably well
          - Shorts dry in a flash after laundering
          - Liner dries overnight after laundering
          - Looks better than road bike shorts on aging riders

          The cons:

          - Expensive. Good deal on sale.
          - velcro pocket closures a bit small (don't carry valuables in pockets)
          - The fabric of the outer short might be too stretchy; it can hang up on front of saddle

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

          Have used a few times to my satisfaction. The real test will be in a week or so mountain biking the Las Vegas desert! Still would like a longer inseam on these as they ride up over the knee.

            I wear these shorts mountain biking. The fit great. Sometimes they feel a little tight around the waist but you can loosen them up with the straps on the side.
