These shorts are just perfect - great craftsmanship, nice stretchy fabric & shorter inseam compared to most other shorts (which I like a lot). Highly recommended!
these shorts get the job done. the alternative back pocket styles, one zippered and one open, are convenient for storing things that you either want quick access to or want securely zipped up. the only issue I have with these is the sizing and proportions is a bit off for my taste -- the waist is a little too big and the inseam a little too small. I usually wear medium waist/32x32 pants and like shorts to fall an inch or two above the knee. I have to use a belt for these shorts and, when riding, they tend to hike way up past my tan lines, flashing a few inches of gloriously pale skin. it's not a deal breaker, but something to be aware of. some additional inseam length options would be good.
I purchased the shorts knowing, from photos and other reviews, the inseam length was maybe a bit short for my liking. I figured, the fit would be perfect given my legs are short relative to my overall height. Alas, the shorts a bit short for my liking. Would be a 5-star item with an inseam length one or two inches longer.
