Remarkable shorts! Fit is perfect, even on my not-so-cyclist type bod in progress; the waist is comfortable, the leg bands hold their place but not too tight or uncomfortable. The compression is perfect (some may like even more, but for me, these are perfect). The fabric is very breathable and breezy. Would have liked a bit more padding in the chamois, but do-able; also, it is so contoured that it is hardly noticeable! Very slimming, yet unrestrictive. I got the black/white short & the black/white Laser sleeveless top...very sharp and cool (word on the top though, the arm-holes are very close, order-up).
I also have the L.G. neo power shorts that many really, really liked; some say they liked better than these shorts, but I feel these are much, much better in fit and performance. The neo's chamois is bulky, and the material somewhat heavy and hot (comparatively). But that's just my opinion.
Highly recommend these easy, breezy shorts!

Thanks for the comparrison to the L.G.'s. Almost ordered those just to try them but I'm ordering another (smaller :)) pair of these instead!
