Patagonia Men's Nether Bike Liner Shorts

December 28, 2021

Perfect for long days

The Nether bike shorts are perfect for those epic rides when time off the bike is as important as on it. The minimalist padding only covers what is needed and allows the other body parts to be free.

Boxer with minimal chamois.

Minimal but that's really all I need anymore. Super breathable.

September 17, 2021

Lightweight, minimal design

These are a great lightweight chamois, providing good protection for those hot days.

Pants are great

Shorts are great. I appreciate the companys social activism.

Perfect light weight bike shorts

I wanted a light weight, breathable undershort with a non-bulky chamois. This is it! Works great. Breathes. The pad is perfect! I havent worn anything else since I bought them. I have generally been riding 20-25 miles of dirt in Northern Arizona. Havent worn them on a big ride yet, but Im sure theyll be great. No chafing and no issues so far.

Comfortable and Light Weight

Really happy with these. Not as bulky as other padded shorts I've worn, but offer good protection. Also felt pretty breathable in hot/humid New England summer. Would recommend.

Chafe short

Awkward seams cause chafing of the thighs. Padding is stiff. Bike short design needs to communicate with strider run short designer. This is the one product I dont recommend.

Hey Andrew, thank you for the review on the Nether Bike Liner Shorts - 7". We're very sorry to hear that the seams have caused chaffing for you, and we've passed the word along to our design team. If you're still in the market for some liner shorts, we recommend checking out the [Men's Endless Ride Liner Shorts - 9"]( as the seaming is less prominent.

Amazing piece of gear

I've been cycling for over 20 years and have been happy with chamois. Always uncomfortable not matter the brand. I stopped using them a few years back and went to Patagonia AC boxer brief that work great but now I have the best of both worlds.

Great fit, awesome material!

These shorts have just about the right amount of padding, not too much and not too little. The fabric material is very nice and thin, as well a super breathable.

Great for rides less than 25 miles

This liner is very comfortable to wear bike commuting or taking shorter bike rides (<25 miles) where a standard chamois feels a bit much. Initially fits a bit smaller than I expected but seems like they will stretch and fit perfect with a more use.

Super comfortable. Mostly durable.

The comfort of the compression short is amazing. Although the durability of the product is sometimes a concern its still durable enough to wear daily. The versatility tops off this 4 out of 5 star rating because it can be worn for just about any activity.

Not worth it

Disappointed. I have the higher-end liners as well and thought these would be a good budget purchase, not worth it. The Chamois is cut jaggedly and to say they are minimalist is an understatement. Barely adequate and overpriced for that they are.

Low profile

As one reviewer has previously mentioned, these liner shorts are sort of a glorified boxer brief. These aren&#x27;t meant for intense rides or long days, but rather shorter stints on a bike. Again, others have mentioned the cut is a tad small in the thighs (works for me) while also being roomy in the waist. While formfitting, they certainly aren&#x... Read More27;t higher end chamois and despite thin padding, their feel doesn't disappear when you ride; when lifting off the saddle, the chamois pad can be felt around (but not hugging) the butt, which may feel strange the first few times! These shorts, however, do excel at being very low profile and wearable for hours off the bike if needed.

the Goldilocks of casual chamois

I ride my bike a lot around town running errands and commuting whenever I can. My goods don&#x27;t feel too great if unprotected and swinging free, but sometimes a full serious chamois is too much and can be super uncomfortable walking around the grocery store or sitting at a friends house drinking a beer. These Nether Bike Liner Shorts are the ans... Read Morewer I didn't know I was looking for and have a permanent place in my cycling wardrobe. Highly recommended.

My first patagonia meh

I would say this is one of the first Patagonia products I have been unenthusiastic about after receiving. If I had to guess I would say these are Patagonia boxer shorts with a pad sewn in. Do not feel like the same quality as usual. Size feels too big, but I am guessing Patagonia sized-up so the pad does not rub. Also the thigh hem elastic is surpr... Read Moreising tight and definitely gets your attention. Have ridden them a handful of times now, they are fairly comfortable and do stay cool. In the end idk...these shorts are not expensive for a patagonia product or bike shorts, but neither are they stunning.

Comfy Pad - but rear cut is too short

I find myself picking these shorts over my Pearl shorts as I like the lower bulk liner for shorter rides. I&#x27;ve found the liner to be top quality and very comfortable. My dislikes are the rear cut on the shorts is much too low and when you move into a lean forward riding position I&#x27;m wishing for 1-2&quot; more material, atleast. Thankfully... Read More these are undershorts and my fellow bikers don't have to witness the "coin slot" that ensues.

Color match 2

Different color variety but limited

Light weight bike liner

The liner is great on shorter rides but on anything longer than a few hours the chamois doesn't provide enough padding. That being said, the shorts are comfortable and don't ride up. Thanks, Patagonia!

Comfy and discrete

I actually wear these liners for use on long bike touring rides - they are super comfy and protective even over long distances. They are also small enough and discrete enough to wear underneath regular shorts/chino shorts without being noticeable when off the bike, which is pretty useful for city use and casual touring.

Never disappointed from Patagonia!

I feel like Pro Athlete, Patagonia makes absolutely perfect fit for me. No matter what, underwear, mid layer, jacket. I am nearly 61, 150lb, everything fit me precisely. Anyway, these bike liner feels great where they shall, as mentioned fantastic fit, color and it is minimalist light design. Thnx Patagonia, keep making stuff for me.

Thin Quads only

I was disappointed with the fit of this product. I ordered the Small based on the size guide and found the leg openings to be way too small for anyone with any sort of cycling musculature. Very tight around the quads. The chamois/pad is really small also seems placed too far forward so the edge of the chamois hits the crease of the leg while pedali... Read Moreng. Fit of the waist, depth, etc was spot on. Leg length/inseam was perfect for a liner to be worm under shorts. Very light, excellent waist band comfort and these will also stay cool in warmer climates. If you have thin legs, give these a go. Quadzillas need not apply.

Comfortable and lightweight

The material is great- Super comfortable and breathes well in the heat, looks good, I definitely found myself forgetting I was wearing it! Which leads me to my only comment- I live in Austin Tx, (which has some serious hills) and bike around 20 miles a day. The chamois helped for sure, but if you bike that much on hilly terrain you&#x27;re still go... Read Moreing to "feel the burn" with this item to a degree. I'm still very happy with it though, it was advertised as such, sacrificing some bulk for comfort. Given how hot it gets here and how comfortable and breathable these have been, I'm happy to make that trade!
