This short is not padded, padded chamois shorts sold separately
Midweight Stretch Mini-Cord Fabric

The material looks like a heavy woven, but they, too, are surprisingly light. If you don’t like the feel of synthetics or nylon, these are 98% cotton with 2% spandex for stretch.
I’ve spent the last month in my Joe Dirts, working at my desk, walking, riding my bike, relaxing with family, and I love them. They are made to last and are much better quality than my old alternatives. Whilst they are super comfy and non-restrictive when active, the material is heavier than my other biking shorts, and that does make them a little warmer.

The Joe Dirt shorts buck the bike trend a bit featuring more of a casual/workwear type of design that you’d pick for a day of hanging out before a big day in the saddle. That being said, the 4- Way stretch and gusseted crotch mean that the Joe Dirt is still at home on the bike. The buttoned phone pocket keeps your phone out of the way while pedaling yet secure enough to not worry about it falling out when you are taking the spicy route to the office or your next brewery stop.
These are a sort of do-it-all short, and are stretchy and moveable enough for a ride, or hauling meteors in a Radio Flyer to the next town.
Very comfortable, true to size, slim fitting but not binding, wonderful when riding a bike or hanging out around town.
Large fits well if you usually wear a 33". My only complaint is the velcro waist adjusters are wider than the hook and loop its attaches to, which allows the velcro adjusters corners to flip sometimes and rub your waist. Love the shorts, and that is a minor annoyance that will not keep me from getting another pair.
I've had a pair for 2 years now and love them. They are my go to short to wear around and on rides. I love the slimmer fit and longer length. They are easy to move in with all the stretch. This is a product i hope they keep around a long time.
I have 2 rides under my belt with these shorts. Nice and stretchy while not feeling all that tight. Sizing is good and the 12" legs are perfect for me. The only thing I would change with these shorts would be to make the phone pocket a bit deeper so I could snap it when I put my phone in after the ride. Other than that small thing, these shorts are going to see a lot of miles this summer!
These shorts are a slim fit, but stretch really well. 32-33" wasted male. Altho slim, they don't feel too restrictive when pedaling. The "bring your own belt" concept is a winner, and they stay up much better than pants that only have an internal half belt around the front. The inside velcro adjustment tabs help dial in the waste size. Good looking shorts, that can cover a lot of activities, from beers to hiking and biking. One minor item: The thigh pocket could be deeper, allowing the pocket to be snapped closed, for a cell phone.
