Best shorts I've ever owned?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small (30)
I love these things. I basically live in them in summer. They're good to run in, climb in, hang out in, backpack in, and while they're not sold as mountain biking shorts, with a pair of padded shorts in them they are the equal of anything from the big MTB brands. These are gaining a cult following in the UK as a serious MTB short and they are amazing for that too. Fabric's super durable, soft, lightweight, dries really fast, water repellent, zip pockets are well positioned, and they just look rad.
On fit, I'm pretty skinny thanks to a diet of road cycling and running and usually wear a 30 and these fit me in a 30 perfectly, but if you're between sizes I'd go for the larger size, especially if you've got bigger legs.
