    Zoic Ether Bike Shorts - Men's is rated 3.8148 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good casual bike shorts I've used these shorts for casual rides in town, for commuting to work�?? a 10 mile roundtrip, and also for technical singletrack mountain biking. They fit fine and are comfortable enough. They're not baggy or loose at all, but rather somewhat trim fitting. The zippered pockets are nice to make sure keys and other things are safe during a ride, and they also look nice as casual off-the-bike shorts. The material is comfortable but not durable, not waterproof, and the fabric tends to attract and hold dirt. The threads of the leg seams and hems did not hold up to mountain biking and I had to had have them re-sewn/repaired after my first hard trail ride. I have another pair of Zoic bike shorts similar to these but made of a different, lighter weight material that I like better. They share the same padded liner which I like a lot and also use with other non-bike-specific shorts. These look nice, fit well, and are fine for casual around town rides or commutes but not for more aggressive off road riding.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite outdoor short I have the older version of these as well as the current one, and they have definitely improved it. The waist adjusters are much better; they no longer appear to be glued together and the "hook" side doesn't snag on all my delicate lycra road gear. The zippers are tough to open/close, but hopefully that means they are durable. The material feels more durable than the previous gen as well. This short would be perfect if the elastic waist was a little more subtle and if the inseam was 1" longer. I have a 30-31" waist and I have to cinch the adjusters all the way (without the hook side hanging off the end of the loop side, that is), and due to the elastic they tend to ride-down a bit when I get warmed up. The media pocket should probably be enlarged on the next gen. Your average 4" smartphone will likely be a tight fit.. although that does mean that it won't flop around at all. My SGSII fits snug and the zipper closes, but it is a two-handed operation to remove it. I love this short. It is my go-to for hiking, biking and amusement parks. I will be buying another pair.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shorts that don't look like bike shorts I am looking at touring and casual rides to and around town. They look good and are comfortable. I really like being able to remove the liner and wear them as regular shorts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good in some ways these shorts are fine in most ways. but i found that, although the many pockets are appealing, the zippers failed on several almost immediately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable I love these shorts. I love the fact that they're not too big, but they're still baggy enough not to feel like a go-go dancer. The pockets are perfect and you don't have to worry about losing any items.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from like the shorts, the liner hurts I use the shorts but removed the liner. I ride with lycra bike shorts underneath. I like the shorts because they do not have seams in the crotch area. There are great pockets everywhere and they look good off the bicycle. The downside is the padded liner. It does not fit properly in the front of the crotch and caused pain when I rode with them. I removed it and replaced it with my lycra bike shorts. All is good now.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but a little pricey I bought these as my first pair of baggy cycling shorts. I like that I can go out to eat or run into a store after a ride without looking too geeky. The shorts fit well and dont ride up or chafe when cycling. I thought I would like the ipod pocket but it is a little too small to use with the Otterbox I have on my iphone. I'm not really sure I want to crash with it in my pocket anyway, so for now I will leave it in my camelbak. The only complaint I have is that they were a little expensive and also not being able dry them in the dryer, Zoic recommends "line dry only". Other than that they are great, comfortable shorts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good! Best mtn bike shorts I've bought in all my 20+ years of mtn biking. The fit it great. They rarely catch on the seat (my new seat is terrible for catching baggy shorts. I'm getting a new one) or get twisted up on long seated climbs. Its tough to describe how they feel because I don't think about them on the ride (which is a good thing). Its after the ride I think "my but doesn't hurt and they never got in the way!" Nice shorts!
