As close as cycling shorts get to couture.
After hours in the dirt, we forget about the sometimes-pampered lives we live at home, and on occasion, we reach a point of clarity and introspect on all the 'luxuries' that are weighing us down. However, style shouldn't be lumped in with top-shelf makeup and fancy dinners. Maloja believes in the marriage of comfort and style, and the CarolaM. Bambi Short proves that good design should never be considered a disposable luxury. Featuring a flattering cut, and a painstakingly hand-drawn design over the short, the CarolaM. Bambi brings your personality to the trail instead of leaving at home.
Maloja's CarolaM. Bambi Short is made from the Polystretch fabric. Designed for the mountain, the material is lightweight, highly-breathable, and quick drying. As its name suggests, the fabric has natural give that's been enhanced by an additional stretch insert in the seat of the short. Combined, the short has a total freedom of movement without a bulky, unflattering cut. The CarolaM. Bambi short also features an adjustable waistband and a tiny stash pocket for your keys or lunch money.
The Maloja CarolaM. Bambi Short is available in sizes from X-Small to X-Large, and in the colors Denim, Moonless, and Rose.

Cute shorts - OK.
So- for price why not?
Fit - little tighter than I expected. I am 5'4" 145 lbs and got medium. I am usually a medium, sometimes a large. The medium is pretty snug and the stretchy panel in the back is the savior here to make them work. Large would probably have been fine, but some winter weight comes off and med will be fine.
Material - stitching looks good, single seam then serged edge, I think it will hold up. Not sure exactly what the material is, it's lighter and softer than you'd expect for mtn biking shorts but comfy.
Cons: Useless tiny front stash pocket (maybe could fit 1 key in there). No belt loops, no front pockets or back pockets.
Pros: I do think they're cute and will ride in them. Not as durable looking as dakine or tld shorts.
