I have two pair that I have been wearing pretty much during my entire tour and still going. I started touring the U.S. at the end of May. I often layer my mission shorts with some kind of base layer in the cooler and weather. I honestly can't believe how durable and comfortable these shorts are. Haven't had as much as a snag on these. No busted stitches, or holes in the pockets etc. I will definitely but again and will recommend them to others.
I have a sprinter's build - large thighs and butt (33" waist, 41" hip, 23" thigh") - and on me these shorts in size 34 are true to size in the waist, and snug but not tight in the thigh which is perfect. The fabric has a wonderful feel and perfect weight to it, and my butt looks good which I appreciate. One minor issue is that the openings for the front pockets are small. My hands aren't particularly big and it is a stretch to fit them into the pocket so I'd like to see that improved moving forward.
Not as crazy about the cut of these shorts as I thought I would be for riding (too tight/short), but I absolutely love them for everything else! I own them in olive and obsidian and will likely grab them in other colors as the come available.
Been trying to find some good fitting all purpose shorts for awhile and these are the ones. I wore them for 72 hours straight over the course of a weekend and I wasn't mad at it.
