    PSA - baggy shell short at Costco

    Costco, at least the one near me, has Eddie Bauer Trek shorts. Turns out these make great shell shorts for wearing over your Lycra so your buddies don't bust your balls when you show up for a ride. They've got a nice wide seamless stretchy waistband, buttoned pockets, and the material is slightly stretchy, tough, and thin. Crotch is reasonably tight also, so no getting hung up on the nose of your saddle. Good stuff. The best is that they are $15 a pair.

    Please, no grief about supporting cycle-specific companies...because paying $50 for exactly the same thing just doesn't make any sense. I do spend the money for the branded stuff where it counts...the liner.

    Anyway, there's today's PSA if you're looking for something like this.

    Thatís I what I like to do. Get a nicer pair of road Lycra shorts and put them under a cheap pair of stretchy type shorts. Costco usually has several pairs that can work.
    Generally though you are not going to find the super long inseams that you see on MTB specific shorts, but I actually like it that way.

    Nice find, but when someone tries to, 'bust my balls'
    I Ignore them.

    I like the feel and performance Lycra shorts,
    My wife says I look good In them, still It matters not to me because I'm not trying to Impress anyone or pick up women while I'm out riding.

    Never liked baggies over Lycra,
    Always hated the noise the loose shorts make,
    The leg length makes me feel like I'm In womens Capris'
    I like my knee's free from the rubbing,
    I've had the baggy shorts legs hang on my saddle for that 'Oh Crap' feeling.

    Skin tight Lycra moves with me and breathes great without the hot baggy shorts over them.

    Yeah, I started with the shorts over lycra, not anymore...no one really sees me anyways except on the trail, and I could care less, comfort is #1!

    "Capris" never liked that look.

    I wear Magellan nylon fishing shorts I found at Academy. Longer inseam, and a very close knock-off of the Kuhl brand. I also found those shorts at Costco... work great as well.

    Just tried the Costco Eddie Bauer's yesterday here in Snoqualmie. They are legit/no restriction. Good find/thanks for the recommendation.

    Is 32 waist the smallest they have? I'll need a 30. I'm gonna check it out over the weekend.

    I need something with a button/zipper pocket for phone and keys.

    I went by my local Costco and they had them but they were $18.99 instead of $14.97 like the were online with free shipping. So I ordered a pair and I just received them yesterday. What a great value! I ordered another pair last night. They are very comfortable. Thanks for posting this.
    Change begins by doing something different.

    Got a pair and they are pretty awesome. $18 in store but I'm ordering another pair or two online for $15 each and free shipping.

    I ordered a couple pairs online as our local Costco doesnít have these.
    I would recommend a going a size down. It has a good 4 inches of stretch so as soon as you start adding wallet, keys, and phone it weighs enough that it wonít stay up on its own without a belt. Luckily I comes with a belt.
    It might just be because Iím tall and skinny, but I actually would have preferred it to be a bit tighter in the crotch and legs. I donít think it would interfere with riding, but itís not the most flattering pair of shorts for normal wear.

    Otherwise the price is right, plenty of stretch, and the material feels durable enough.
