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.
Had to wait for these to come back in stock but great shorts. Slimmer cut and very well made, expensive but super high quality. About to add another pair to the rotation.
I’ve been on a quest for new shorts to for several months now and these are the answer. I often have a problem with shorts where they are too tight in the thigh and too loose around the hips which makes the legs awkwardly ride up, but the fit and stretch of these is perfect. They look much smarter than your standard outdoor/hiking shorts, and the material seems sturdy and durable. I exclusively wear bibs for long rides so I can’t speak to how they hold up for “serious” cycling, but off the bike I’ve barely taken them off since I got them, and they’ve been superbly comfortable for quick rides around town. My only (minor) complaint is the lack of a small pocket for keys, change, etc. One of the back pockets is zippered, but it’s full size which means you’re sitting on your keys if you put them there. A smaller pocket within or above the front pockets (like the change pocket on a pair of jeans) or a small zippered pocket on the leg would help a lot. I’ll still be buying another pair though!
Super comfortable. Surprisingly lightweight and breathable, but still look great and more put together than athletic shorts. I plan to buy a second pair in a different color. If they hold up like people say they do, they will definitely be worth the price.
