      Comments about Nashbar Eastside Shorts:

      I ride on almost a daily basis, whatever size you are, pick the next size up. I have a 32 waist and the medium size is VERY tight on me. I have a size large of the Nashbar Isolation shorts that I have had for 2 year the fit perfectly.

      Comments about Nashbar Eastside Shorts:

      I received a gift of 2 Nashbar shorts: one "Isolation" and one "Eastside." The online product descriptions are unclear about how the two differ. Here's the only difference I could find: the "Isolation" has a slightly larger rise (distance from crotch to waist). The difference is about half or three-quarters of an inch--it's hard to measure exactly. In riding, I don't feel any difference between the two.

      The fit seems good. My physique is more round than lean, so when the pants' waist fits the legs are a little baggy. That's to be expected. After more than 500 miles of touring and commuting in the two models, I can say that they are comfortable and they appear to be holding up well.

      This is my first use of a gel chamois. Off the bike, the chamois felt large, stiff and clammy, especially at first. In riding, however, it is very comfortable--breathable enough, of a good thickness, and nicely shock-absorbing. I prefer it to the cloth chamois in my older pants.

      The fly in the ointment is the waistband channel for the (flat) drawstring. It's just two slits in the fabric, no grommets. My washing machine (or the other laundry in the machine) invariably grabs the drawstring and pulls it partly or entirely out of the waistband channel. Because the pants have no grommets on the waistband, tying a knot in each end of the drawstring does no good. If I tie the 2 ends of the drawstring together, the drawstring loop gets pulled out and horribly tangled on the machine's agitator and/or other laundry.

      I'm tempted just to throw the drawstrings away, as I don't need them now for fit. But as the pants age, the waistband elastic MIGHT slacken, and then I'll wish I had a drawstring. Of my two pairs of pants, one has lost the drawstring--MAYBE I'll be able to re-thread it if I need it later--and the other I'm now hand-washing. An annoyance in either case. So that loses the pants a star in the ratings.

      The swooshy-N Nashbar logo soon fell off the "Isolation." I consider that a small improvement rather than a problem--but it doesn't help inspire confidence in the brand. FWIW, the different logo on the Eastside remains firmly in place.

      Apart from the drawstring problem, I like the pants plenty, and the price was very attractive.

        Comments about Nashbar Eastside Shorts:

        This is first cycling shorts I've owned. Fit is good if your thin just little high on waist and I think I'd like pad further back. Material is kinda poor I wore them for one 185mi ride and almost have a hole on butt where I have tear in seat and wore through seam threads where pack strap rode on thigh.U get what you pay for.

        Excellent Shorts

          Comments about Nashbar Eastside Shorts:

          This is my first pair of "biking shorts" and I am impressed. The fit is excellent, although I took cues from other shoppers and bought 1 size larger. The shorts are very comfortable and really add a level of enjoyment to my daily commute. I was skeptical at first because of the price, but I'm hooked! In fact, I am purchasing more of these shorts!

              I wear bike shorts everyday under cargo shorts. First pair I ordered did not have any padding in one half of the crotch. The second pair, medium, was so small it would not have fit a small female.

              a great value priced liner. The padding is comfortable and non-intrusive walking. Perfect for under a pair of shorts or pants. -in 25+ years I hate wearing just bike shorts on or off road!
