These are the 1st pair of shorts I bought. Mainly due to the reviews. Granted they are a little pricey. But definitely worth it if you have the extra money. Very comfortable & they look great on. Actually there pretty bad ass. An that padding in the crotch works wonders for those longer rides. Took a bit to get use to though. Felt like I was walking around with a load in my drawers. But man did I need that padding.
As for fit. I'm 6'01 220 thin build usually wear a size 36 in jeans. I went with the X-Large and they fit perfectly. There is elastic in the waist band so there's plenty of room. An adjustable straps on the side. Length wise they come right to my knees. I wear them with the "Fox launch knee/shin pads" no problem. Fit is perfect. Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase. Oh almost forgot. Those zippered pockets really come in handy. I carry my iPhone in the front left don't even know it's there
