Description

Essence Short

Riding in the Craft Essence Shorts makes all of the difference, because when you're comfortable on your bike you can focus on pushing yourself. Lycra Sport Energy material is built with 4-way elasticity, so it provides a compressive fit that supports your muscles without restricting your motion. A C3 chamois provides cushion between you and your seat, and flat seams eliminate chafing throughout your pedal strokes. The Essence is rated to UPF 50+, so you don't have to worry about harmful sun exposure, and silicone leg grippers hold the hem in place so you can rest assured that your shorts won't ride up and expose your skin.

Waist band fit well, the fabric I would lean to "compression fit" it didn't have much give, specifically in the thighs. While I do have larger quads, I've never had other shorts be too small in the thighs...

I am very pleased with these shorts. I have struggled to find shorts for everyday use that fit me properly. As a short woman, barely five feet tall, I find that most shorts are too long and thus hang loose on my thighs. These hug my thighs well. They’re lightweight and very comfortable as well. Though not inexpensive, they aren’t as pricey as some of the other brands. I wasn’t familiar with this manufacturer, but was actually referred to them by another company whose shorts did not fit me properly. I will check back to see if there are tights that also meet my needs.
