“Well built shorts”

The Good: Look good, breathability, zippered pockets, adjustable waist strap, comfortable

The Bad: Run long, can't get them in any other color than black or camo (as of this year)

Overall Review:

These shorts are great but they run really long and they run a size bigger than normal. I ordered a medium which is a 32-34 inch waist and they were still a little big. I wear a 32" waist and I have to tighten the waist strap all the way to get them tight on my waist. I think they look really good. I don't like their color options for this year because they only offer black or camo. Maybe next year they will come out with more and better colors. At least black shorts will go with any jersey. The stitching is really good and hasn't come undone or started fraying. The zippered pockets are nice to put your phone,keys, or money in. The mesh is very breathable and comfortable. I also like that there is a tailbone pad built into the rear waist of the shorts for some added protection. These shorts are a quality pair of shorts that will serve your descent riding needs. Other than the shorts being really long, these are great shorts
