Louis Garneau Leeway Short - Men's
Louis GarneauLeeway Short - Men's

Room to move.

Baggies that are durable enough to withstand everyday trail abuse don't have to be made from bulky, heavy fabrics, and Louis Garneau demonstrates that fact with its breathable Leeway Men's Short. Lightweight and flexible, the Leeway comes with a detachable inner liner complete with a wide, lay-flat waistband and cushy chamois to see you through long days on the trails. Adjustable side tabs on the outer shorts' waist give you freedom to fine-tune the overall fit, while two roomy zippered pockets provide space to stash trail essentials where they won't get lost.

Nice shorts. But runs small!

    Runs at least 1 size too small. XL was barely equivalent to a medium.

    Solid shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Nice feeling fabric with one zippered and one unzippered front pocket. The liner fits and works well but this is personal preference. Good subtle colors.

    Needed Fat Bike Shorts

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

    I needed some fat biking shorts and I have been using Louis Garneau road biking shorts and I love them so I got the mountain biking ones and I love them as much as the road bike shorts.

    Bought on a recommendation

    Clayton followed up about some recent orders to see how everything was going (best customer service hands down) and I said great but needed a nice MTB short with a decent liner. He suggested these and I have road shorts from LG and gave them a shot. Best. Shorts. Ever. I almost forget I'm wearing a liner!! They're a bit long for lounging but that doesn't bother me on the bike. Fit is good, went with an XL as I between sizes and I am happy with my choice.

    Awesome Casual Cycling Shorts

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

    I was looking for something more casual than racing bibs/shorts and this was it! Perfect for casual riding or commuter riding.

    These shorts come with a chamois. And there are velcro straps on the sides that help you adjust the waist size, so you do not have to wear a belt with these.

    I'm really happy with these shorts!

    Excellent

    Very comfortable shorts, slimmer fit but not too tight! Sits right at the knee. Inner liner is solid.

    Awesome short.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I like my cycling clothing to be a little more fitted plus my seat doesn't go up and down. These shorts are the best fitting shorts I have found. Not too baggy or too tight. The fabric is incredibly breathable and the waits adjustments do not create a ball of fabric when tightened. The inseam length is perfect, right at the knee. The chamois is great for most rides under 3hrs but I put on a pair of bibs if going longer.

    Great Baggies

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

    I was searching for a pair of baggies that were lightweight, fitted, and minimal. These hit the nail on the head! While technically baggies, these are slim fit and offer comfort and breathability, while not making you feel like you're wearing parachutes. The minimal design looks great too. They're surprisingly lightweight and dry really quickly. The size chart specifies small as a 32, but I'd say it's more like 28-30. Definitely recommend for trail riding!
