      Seams on multi-density pad chafe

      By Eric

      from Saint Louis, MO

      About Me Casual/ Recreational

      Comments about Nashbar Isolation Shorts:

      For me, the seams on the side of the narrowest part of the multi-density pad chafe. I am male and did order the correct size per guidelines (small, for a 30" waist). I am not sure it would have helped, but if I were to try these again, I would order one size larger. Otherwise, they seem well-constructed for the price, but are unwearable for me.

        Comments about Nashbar Isolation Shorts:

        Was trying to find new shorts after getting back in to cycling after 10 years. Loved the old style Nashbar 8 panel shorts with chamois pad. Tied these but was disappointed with the fit, the length in the back and the bulky pad. Emailed Nashbar customer support and they recommend the Louis Garneau Pro Max 2 (thanks Nashbar). I ordered a pair size XL for a 37 inch waist. They are actually 9 panel and have a great pad. Night and day between the two shorts. I returned the Nashbar shorts and ordered a second pair of LG's.

        Comfortable but Fits Poorly

            Comments about Nashbar Isolation Shorts:

            This is the first pair of cycling shorts I've bought in about 20 years so maybe I was expecting more than I should have. I am 40 years old, 6'2" tall and weigh 175lbs. I have skinny legs. I normally wear a 33" waist so according to the sizing guide I was a Medium. The shorts fit in the waist but the length from crotch to waist is quite short to the point where when I'm riding, even with a cycling jersey, I feel like the motoring public is getting more of an eyeful than they bargained for. They're not so bad that I'm going to return them. I'll just use them under regular shorts when I take the kids out for casual rides. I'll research and see if I can find something that will fit better. As far as comfort goes, the padding is good and I'd say a bargain for the price. The grippy stuff at the bottom of the leg keeps the shorts from riding up.

              Have three pairs in daily rotation. Drawstring falls out in the wash. The drawstring isn't really necessary to keep them in place so I just threw it out. Medium fits me very well. I'm 6 foot and 170 approx. with a 34 true waist (32 Levis 501s). They wash nicely and always look clean. After the 3rd wash or so the Nashbar logo comes off. I don't care about that, so...

                  Comments about Nashbar Isolation Shorts:

                  If you are an avid cyclist and used to very good bike shorts and expect these to compare based on the reviews you will likely be disappointing. Don't get me wrong, these are decent shorts, and have a place in your drawer, but they do not compare to higher end shorts. The fit is okay but limited by the 6 panel design. They are not perfectly tight all over, there is some "wrinkling" around the crotch and butt. Not a huge deal. The pad in the shorts is actually pretty nice for the price, though on the light side. I probably would stick to rides 2 hours or shorter. These shorts would make good liner shorts. These would also be good for indoor spinning in the winter. Put the wear and tear and washes on these instead of more expensive shorts.
