Item # DAK00EA

Don't let the heat cramp your style.

When summer's most miserably hot days roll through, the Dakine Syncline Shorts make your ride refreshingly cooler. Zippered inseam vents pull cooling air into the shorts, and the quick-drying polyester and spandex fabric pulls moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable.

By using polyester and spandex, Dakine made the Syncline light, stretchy, and tough, so you can pedal hard, crash, and repeat — all in the same run. There's a stretchy panel at the back for increased mobility, and the Syncline also has a DWR treatment to keep moisture and grime at bay. Zippered pockets in the front and on the legs take care of your valuables, and internal waist adjustments allow you to dial in the perfect custom fit.

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.

-The 4 way stretch fabric is amazing.<br ></article>-There could be more pockets but backpacks work just as good.<br />-Fit is great, they come with adjustable wastband.<br />-Leg vents are superb.<br />-durability seems to be holding well.<br />

Can anyone comment how these fit? Run big? Normal? Small?

I didn't buy them from back country but what i can say is they are light, quite stretchy, the leg vents work wonders, and they fit awesomely. I wear a size 33 waist. I bought size 34 and adjusted the tensioners a little and i haven't looked back. I would buy more pairs in different colors but my wallet is a little sparse after the purchase lol.
