MUSA (Made in the USA) shorts are the Rolls Royce/Cadillac/Red Wiggler of all-purpose shorts. As good on the bike as off. Made of taslan nylon, a textured fab, they weigh zero ounces and dry in one second, or so it seems. Notably for cycling shorts--and thank heaven for this--they lack the usual sewn-in diaper pad that generally identifies shorts as For Cyclists.
Normal looking bike shorts!
These are regular, so you wear separate undies with them, just as you do for your normal pants. That way, you can wash undies and shorts separately.
They are seamless in the crotch. The stress points are bar-tacked in cheery ruby. The pockets are large and suspended (that's the tech term for "not made like Carhart pockets").
Two rear pockets securely hold your wallet or something flat until the blue buttons--which match the blue pocket and crotch trim, by the way--fall off. There's no way to stich buttons on securely, so if you care about your buttons, hand-sew them with strong, beeswaxed thread, and tie it off good.
On the back of the legs are two patches of 3M Scotchlite. Hardly noticeable in daytime, but handy to have there at night. A little movement and flash, not bad.
The waist belt has a double-slider buckle and is not stitched in. It's better that way.
These shorts are cut full and on the long side.
