The North Face Bracket Bike Shorts - Men's - 2012 Closeoutis rated4.0out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromDecent Product, No complaintsMy first pair of biking shorts. For someone that can't compare it to anything else, here's what I observed. The padding seems good in riding position; however, feels a little awkward when walking around. I noticed a great increase in comfort for longer and aggressive rides. The material seems durable and feels light. I also want to mention that the material makes that nylon rubbing noise while biking. Overall, I am satisfied with the shorts. They were designed for mountain biking and perform that task to standard. Bottom-line: they stay in position while riding and offer padding.

Rated4out of5byfromworks for melength is too long and rubs my leg below the padded short portion. Wish the padded shorts could be detached from the outer shorts for laundry.
