- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small and Medium
I am 5'7, 135# and wear between size 4-6 pant sizes. I don't have a super athletic lower half, but I hated the idea of wearing something too tight while cycling - In form fitting athletic clothing I usually order medium because I don't like to feel the material hugging me all over. I first ordered a medium and wore it on about 10 rides before being convinced that the small would be OK. The medium bunched up just barely around my middle and felt bulkier than I wanted. I then ordered the small. The small fits best and still allows for a custom fit with the side adjustments. The shorts are made of snag-resistant, stretchy material that moves well while riding - I never have to adjust. I live in Western NC and even on the hot and humid days I don't feel like these are too warm. Side pocket fits my Goodr sunnies and my 6S iPhone, but I don't think they will fit a much bigger phone. The silicone grip on the waist band works well to keep it from moving around at all. Taking the medium to our local second-hand gear store! Great pair of shorts, totally recommend!
