Great heavy duty shorts that don't weigh you down. I like the pockets and the hook and loop tabs on the bottoms to close them up and keep them from snagging on your saddle or branches and whatnot. And the zip up vents on the front are great for when wearing them in that manner. One of the front pockets has a smaller zip up pocket just inside it for small items you'd rather not loose. The plastic buckle above the fly seems a little flimsy and unnecessary with the elastic in the back but if I really cared I'd just cut it off.
