Jonwrote a review of Backcountry Empire Bike Short - Men's on July 21, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
32" waist, medium
I wear a medium in these, and don't need to tighten the adjusters at all. I come from a road background, and prefer a trimmer fit. The pockets are great, the construction is excellent, and the fit is spot-on for me. I pair them with Pearl Izumi Liner Bibs for mountain biking, and basic compression shorts for my 5m commute to work.
