Bellwether Escape Shorts
When your escape involves dirt, the Bellwether Escape Shorts have got you covered. The durable, stretchy shell hides a pair of breathable mesh inner shorts that contain the medium distance-worthy Contour Chamois pad. Zippers on the front of the shorts open to provide airflow, and two front pockets and two side pockets give you lots of room for food and gear.
PLEASE NOTE: Sizing runs small, ordering a size up is HIGHLY encouraged.
Great shorts. Can't beat for the price. Padding is good. Great material.
I've been using mine for the past 2 months. I have abused them by taking them through tough terrains, mud dirt and rain, and they are still good. Light material, perfect for hot weather conditions. The chamois is just fine, A little bulky at first, but when you get used to it, it is just fine. The shorts run small, so get a size bigger than you usually do; and when washing them, get a bag for delicate clothes or something like that... they attract everything in the washer machine.
I thought the shorts were nice enough for the price. The only thing I don't like how the shammy isn't removable. I usually wear a medium, so I ordered a large, but they didn't fit! Too big. My waist size is around 32. The stern 'order a size up' on the product details page is a litte misguided. I was pretty frustrated to have to send them back and they are sold out of mediums.
Shorts are high quality and exactly were exactly what I needed. However, you cannot trust the sizing. I wear a medium in all other brands; I couldn't even zip up these. I assume I'd need a XL, but honestly can't even guess. My petite wife couldn't wear them either. I didn't even bother with returning them. Maybe my toddler son can wear them in a few years as long pants...
Very nice material and they look excellent. Seat pad (or chamois, whatever you call it) is really comfortable. They are a bit of a small make, I'm a 36 waist and the XL are just big enough. I would recommend them for sure, but consider ordering a size up.
want to know the waist side large xlarge xxlarge thanks im 38
XL size is a 34-36 waist at most, not standard sizing, beware.
