if you were to buy them - don't size up

For these shorts, at least, the note in the sizing section that Giordana runs tight is incorrect. According to the sizing chart, I fall between L and XL, so I opted for the XL due to the note. Shorts were far too big - visibly baggy on me. Even in the correct size, the material of these shorts is very thin and they have very little compression. I have heard good things about Giordana, but these were a big disappointment - returned.
