“Fox=Quality”

The Good: Durable construction, they have pockets!!! (most TLD stuff doesn't), goggle/sunglasses shammy included, adjustable waist strap, great zipper; it hasn't gotten caught once, longer shorts so they cover a lot, well ventilated

The Bad: Don't machine dry these!! Mine are permanently warped because I forgot and dried them in a machine, could be too long for some riders, not cheap but you get what you pay for with fox.

Overall Review:

I waited a long time for a pair of these to go on sale but they never did so I just caved and bought them at full retail, fox stuff usually never goes on sale and I think it is because they are a well known company and feel that for what you get its a fair price and they don't want to compromise. I use these for DH and park riding only since they are heavy duty, long in length and are all black so they can get a little hot in the summer but they are well ventilated.

They fit great but they are a longer pair of shorts so they do catch on my knee pads sometimes which can get annoying. I have crashed while wearing these pads a few times and so far not even a busted stitch. The zippers are top notch and they even come with a detachable silk shammy for cleaning your sunglasses/googles. The material is some sort of supernylon I think because they also repel water pretty good. They are by no means cheap but with fox you'll never have to worry about them breaking down, so would you rather have 1 pair of $100 shorts that will last you 4+ seasons or have to buy $50 shorts every couple of season, its your call....P.S. AIR DRY THESE, no machine dryer.
