Race Face Indy Shorts 2017

Rating:
The Good:

Durability, Comfort,

The Bad:

The white logo peeled of like they all do

Overall Review:

Bought 2014 version back in ...2014 and now, after 3 years of riding same short I rubbed hole on the butt from biking. A testament to comfort and durability. Airy in the summer, with things underneeth great for (dry-ish) winter too. No zipper or buttom issues.

The 2017 comes with revised fit, higher waist all around, not just raised back part.
Top to bottom they feel and look more snug than previous model. Which I consider a good thing. Bagginess is out.

My only complain would be waist area which feels lot thicker (understand warmer) than rest of the short.

Size M for 187cm (6'2"), slim. Not too tight, not too loose, long enough, they blend in well with knee pads, and they make me happy. I ride without diaper.
As I refuse to spent 80+ $ on bike shorts, their price is keeping me happy as

2012 shorts were excellent

Rating:
The Good:

Light, comfortable, long lasting, zippered front pocket, look good

The Bad:

2013 shorts not as good

Overall Review:

2012 Indy shorts were excellent, have easily done a year and are still going strong.

Tried the 2013's I didn't like the fabric, the size was very much on the smaller size and there is no zippered front pocket essential for keeping valuables safe.
