Brad Mwrote a review of Backcountry Empire Bike Short - Men's on June 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
I read lots of reviews on these that noted they ran small. I am 5'11 and 184 lbs. I wear a 32 waist jean. So I ordered a Large. Received the shorts and they were too big. Returned and ordered a Medium. Fits perfect. I little more tailored in the leg which I like when riding but still feels like a short. Smart pocket design and I cant wait to give them a longer test. But so far they look great.
UPDATE - I went on my first ride the other day with these. Absolutely love them. But they are stretchy.. So I did find myself tightening the side velcro a bit more than I anticipated. ALSO.. I would suggest backcountry still make some belt loops on these in future models "just in case" someone needs a little extra support. Love the fabric, the fit and pocket placement.
