How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Very comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These shorts are great! Good fit, breathable, great range of motion, and good resistance from mud and dirt. I'd definitely buy another pair if there were more in my size, and I'll definitely be doing a lot more shopping on backcountry.com too!

Is there crotch padding?

No these do not have any sort of built in chamois.

Good shorts

Personally I like the shorts, Mark said they will run slightly small, so i ordered a size 34 (actual size 31), they fit really well, they have enough room so that i use the side straps to make them the perfect waist with a little sag for comfort.
They are actually BLACK shorts, on the website i expected a little charcoal color with a dark black strip in between the white... but they're pretty much full black with the white strips. The logo is really nice, a very bright white, stands out nicely.
Inside they have a mesh material so they are a little hotter than expected, but anything will be hotter than gym shorts, that's the only reason I gave it a 4/5.

I'd recommend them, I think they're pretty awesome shorts.

Not what I expected

Definitely size up if you find these shorts desirable. I bought them in the size I normally wear and they were uncomfortably tight; even with waist adjusted as loose as possible. I actually double checked the tag to make sure I received the correct size. Aside from how they fit at the waist, they fit tight everywhere else as well; not loose like I would expect a DH/FR short to be. Only other thing to note is that these have a velcro fly, which I would have dealt with if they fit comfortably. Just too many negative points for me. Returned, and I'll be getting something else.
