    Covert Liner Short

    Wearing the Backcountry Covert Liner Shorts under your baggies doesn't necessarily change your riding ability, but it does change your comfort level throughout the ride. These shorts are made from a stretchy material that is silky smooth so they conform to your exact leg shape and interface nicely with your other layers. Strategically constructed, the Covert features thicker fabric where contact with the seat is anticipated and thinner fabric on the outside—balancing the need for durability and breathability. The low-profile chamois provides cushion between you and your seat, ensuring you can ride longer in comfort without being overly bulky when the ride is over. The leg grip band features a slim layer of silicone to ensure the shorts stay in place without squeezing, yet has a smooth feel so you don't feel sticky or clammy as you work up a sweat.

    • Liner shorts for comfort on your ride
    • Stretchy fabric conforms to your exact shape
    • Low-profile chamois provides cushion and comfort
    • Thicker fabric near the seat withstands friction
    • Side panels provide extra airflow
    • Leg grippers have a slim layer of silicone for security

    Comfortable, sleek, but runs small

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I really like this liners - this is my second season in these and I'm traditionally a medium bottom (5'3", 29 in waist, 135-140 lbs) and even though the medium Empire short were my jam, these were too tight in the waist and it caused the waistband to roll down while I was riding--not ideal. Fast forward to three months in quarantine, I'm down below 130 lbs and the waist fits perfectly now in the medium (while I've had to size down to a small in the Backcountry mountain bike shorts - Empire and Slickrock). I find the fit to be less 'diaperlike' than some other styles, I love the higher waist--stays put throughout rides, the material is great and keeps me from overheating on long, hot summer rides, and my favorite part - the elastic on the leg holes is a great fit and doesn't suffocate my athletic thighs!

    Pretty Good

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M

    I bought this after researching extensively for an affordable pair of bike shorts for mountain biking. After reading over reviews, I ordered a Medium and it fits really well!
    I like the breathability and where the seams hit on my body.
    What I don't like? The chamois needs to be wider and thicker.
    I held out to write this review until I knew for sure that I could blame the chamois for my soreness. However, after biking 200 this season so far and comparing with another set of Pearl Izumi bike shorts, I can confirm that the chamois on this pair are too thin for long rides.

    RUNS SMALL

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: M

    All the other reviews are right - SIZE UP! Although even with a larger size, I think I would struggle getting the waistband over my hips. So freakin' tight. Fits way too snug at the waistband (and it rolls down) and comfortably loose at the thighs. I really like the mesh on the legs for airflow, and the high waist, but the logo is really big and ugly. Unfortunately a return from me. I'm normally a 6/8 or 28/29 in pants and the medium suffocated me at the waist.

    Not perfect, but it will do

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I was pretty excited to try these as they have a higher waistline than the fox chamois I normally would wear. Problems for me were they were quite small to get on up and over my hips, then when I got them there, it was too snug on my belly and oddly loose on my thighs. I would say that I have fairly large thighs and that has never been an issue, I rode with them anyways and they did stay down on my legs without riding up, but I don't care much for the roll down on my belly with the waistline. Maybe if I was thinner this wouldn't occur.

    Not the fit for me

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I ordered a large because I tend to run between a M & L and reviews suggested sizing up. I'm not sure if the pair I got was produced incorrectly, but the waistband was super small and the leg opening barely gripped my thighs. An unusual combination for my body type. Usually, it's the thighs I have trouble with.

    Comfortable fit & lightweight

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Love the high-rise, comfortable band around the thigh (read:doesn't squeeze my quads), and light mesh fabric. No awkward pinching, squeezing, or twisting with these. Just enough padding to be comfortable but not so much that you feel like you're wearing a diaper.
    They do seem to run a tad small - I purchased bc.com Empire bike shorts in a Small, but ended up getting a Medium in these liners. Size up if you're unsure, but definitely recommend.

    Nice fit

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I never used this brand and it was a bit of gamble to purchase it. So far it seems ok. The fit is nice and material feels good and stretchy.

    Run small

    • Fit: Runs small

    Get a size larger if you have a butt :) Guess I'll be getting an XL.

    Comfort! And not too tight on the quads.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    OK SO, normally I HATE those elastic bands at the bottom of the leg on liners. I have pretty muscular quads and even when the rest of the shorts fit in the waist/butt/hips, those bands are ALWAYS too tight and literally leave a mark on my leg hours after I've taken them off. NOT THESE! (Round of applause). I have these in a small. I'm about 5'4 123lbs athletic build. I love them. They're comfy and stay in place but don't feel like they're pinching me anywhere. Also they are super high-waisted (just covered my belly button). Big fan.

    Bring on the comfort

    • Size Bought: Small

    These liners are a must have for long rides. They have just enough padding to give you comfort and not get in the way or look/feel excessive. Fitting down the thigh and helps keep your shorts in place! I won't be riding much without a pair of these.
