    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
