This short is not padded, padded chamois shorts sold separately
Midweight Stretch Mini-Cord Fabric
98% Cotton / 2% Spandex
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.
I ordered the 12" Joe Dirt shorts in black back in April and really liked them. Material feels durable and stretchy and they are great casual shorts as well as shorts to wear riding on most days. If it's really hot I wear the Mountain Surf short which is lighter weight material. In June I decided to order the blue Joe Dirt 12" and I've found that they fit very differently than my black pair. Same short, same size, different cut.
The black shorts fit very snuggly on my thighs after I first wash them and then they stretch out after a half day of wear. The blue are more relaxed and never feel tight on my thighs. I like both pairs but they really don't even feel like the same shorts. I actually had a similar issue with another Club Ride short (Mountain Surf) where I ordered a second pair in a different color and one fits great and the other is too big and doesn't stay up while I'm riding.
Great shorts but the inconsistent sizing is an issue.
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.
