Meh - not in love
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 33
I have a handful of bike shorts from Patagonia, Yeti, REI and these. Of them, these are my least favorite. The material is solid and seems like it will hold up well. It's also pretty stretchy so easy to ride it. The fit is a bit odd - they run bigger than other shorts I have (both bike and non-bike shorts), in terms of waste, hips, and length. They look a bit like shorts from 1996 in that regard. As well, the phone pocket is poorly placed. If you put your phone in it while riding it will restrict your pedal stroke and/or flop around on you. I have other shorts, such as the Patagonia Dirt Craft, which have a much better 3rd pocket design. I got these shorts on sale so it was probably worth it, but I'd recommend looking elsewhere before these.
