    “Well cut but cotton??”

    The Good: Great fit, good cut, just baggy enough, length is nice, good liner

    The Bad: Cotton fabric, crotch catches on seat, pockets are a bit deep

    Overall Review:

    When I bought these I thought they were soft and supple and felt very nice. I mean, really, who doesn't like soft and supple, right? When I tried them on with the liner it seemed like they just fit right. These were gonna be summer shorts for when I wasn't wearing pads. The shorts are definitely on the long side. Think: modern day basketball shorts. They fit well on the waist though and were very comfortable. As a matter of fact, they were very comfortable on the first two hour ride with them including the liner. The crotch hung up on the seat a few times but I've learned to just deal with that over time with just about any short. The liner is very well made and doesn't use the strange tabs every other company uses that makes it all strange when you have to drop drawers. The chamois is well made and offers no chafing on the seams.

    The short itself has a great cut and though the pockets are a bit long they aren't in the way unless full. Even when you have things in them they puff out instead of in and down. These are shorts you wouldn't feel out of place wearing in the bar. Relatively understated for Fox and seem like normal cargo shorts as they don't swish when you walk. Unfortunately, they're not the best for riding in the Northwest. I must have had a brain fart when I noted that they were primarily cotton. This is really a no-no. I rode these in the summer and they were sweat soaked and didn't dry out quickly. These wouldn't be the shorts to take on a road trip. You likely wouldn't be wearing them the next day. If they were made with some sort of soft polyester these would be great longer shorts.

    “Decent Baggie shorts for MTB”

    The Good: Soft, comfortable fabric

    The Bad: Thick fabric gets hot

    Overall Review:

    These are good for comfort and chilling around town before, during and after a ride. Cargo pockets come in handy for stashing stuff and an adjustable waist ensures a good fit. My favorite feature is the lens cloth for your glasses or goggles.

    The downside is that since these are a bit heavier (and have more cotton) than many shots out there, they tend to hold water from sweat or rain more than I would like.
