Covert Liner Short

Liner shorts aren't the most exciting piece of mountain bike gear, but they're definitely an essential one. If you want to be able to sit comfortably the day after a big ride, you'll want something like the Backcountry Covert Liner Short to wear under your baggies. Constructed from a stretchy material that feels super soft against the skin, you might forget you're wearing them when all your focus turns to the trail ahead. Breathable side panels provide ventilation on hot summer days, while the low-profile chamois cushions your sit bones, giving you the benefit of long-ride comfort that doesn't feel bulky off the bike.

I typically don't wear a chamois or pad while mountain biking, but I was starting to get some serious chaffing from daily riding and 20+ mile days. These are a perfect comfortable fit and the padding is not too thick. It doesn't feel like you're wearing a diaper or waddling around when you're walking. I liked them so much I ended up getting 3 pairs for daily use. Fit was 100% perfect (waistband was not too loose or too tight) for size medium. I'm typically wear size 31 pants.

You get what you pay for. For ten dollars more I would go with Pearl Izumi liners. The backcountry waist is very loose. Feels like they are falling off. The padding is marginal but better than going without I guess. Overall they are true to size.

I bought these for my boyfriend and he loves them. He says it really helps pad his tush when he's mountain biking.

Unfortunately this liner didn't fit. I am 5'11", 185 lbs, ordered the large. Standing up, they fit great. When I bent over into attack position they slid down my butt. Haha. The quality felt good, everything seemed nice out of the package, but unfortunately I have to return.

I've had a pair of underliners before for casual cycling but they were made for women that I bought at a sporting goods store on sale. This is the first pair I bought made for men and they are heaven! The fit and materials are as good as a pair of high end bibs. I'm stoked that Backcountry is making their own products....especially products with such high functionality. Keep em coming guys!! I typically wear size medium and these fit true for me.

Shorts offer some great padding in all the right spots. The elastic around the thigh towards the bottom of the shorts is forgiving and doesn't pull your skin or hair like other brand.

These are my first liners and so far they are pretty comfy. I have yet to test on the trail but I've ridden without liners many times before and anything is better than nothing. I noticed the band around the thighs are a little loose but everything else is snug.

Compared to other shorts with a built in liner, these fit me a little odd. They are a little loose in the legs and waist but good snug fit elsewhere. Love that I will be able to wear these under many types of shorts such as swimming trunks that have their liner removed. Depending on how well these hold up to wash and wear, I will look to get more!

These Rule

I'm not usually a person who wears a liner short underneath my shorts while on the MTB but I love these things. I'm a 32" waist and the medium fits perfect. Super stretchy and breathable and I love how low profile the pads are. Stoked to have a little more 'cush' without feeling like I'm wearing a diaper.
