Fit is a bit off but good padding

I purchased a small, which is my usual size for bike shorts. The material doesn't give much once the shorts are on and the waist could definitely be higher. When they are on, they feel like the kind of shorts that you would need to shimmy up constantly, but they seem to stay in place, at least for an hour indoor spin. I kept them because I like to support local and socially responsible companies. Nice padding and seamless threading.

I really like the shorts, very comfortable seat. I wish it was a little higher at the waist and mesh side pockets would be perfect.

Not happy with the product

I am a 66 year old woman . I have been cycling my entire life. I wear 9” shorts because it is what I am used to and also at my age 9” shorts are appropriate. The shorts I received were not 9”. They were 7” shorts, although they were labelled as 9” shorts. The shorts are not comfortable. I am very disappointed with this purchase.

Hi Yvonne: we are so sorry to hear how unhappy you are with your samsara shorts.
We make the black shorts in both 7” and 9” so it is possible we mistakenly sent you the wrong length. Can you kindly send a photo of the leg elastic as the elastic on the 7” shorts is twice as wide as the 9” shorts and we will be able to confirm from the photo or a measurement.
In any case we want you to be 100% satisfied and we will happily give you a full refund if you would like to send them back ( we will also cover postage). To be clear, the measurement for 9” or 7” is taken from the inseam.
Again, sorry to hear you were disappointed. Kindly let us know how you’d like to proceed.
