These shorts are super comfy on and off the bike. The have a little longer cut (at the bottom of the knee cap) and a little slimmer fit in the waist than my attack Q4 shorts from two year ago. I wear size 33 pants and my other fox shorts are 34 with the waist cinched down. I ordered these in 34 and have the waist as loose as it goes.

The material is really light weight, dries almost immediately, and is super stretchy. It's been great for Arizona riding. They've seen a couple small wrecks and resisted abrasion from dirt and sandstone just fine. However, I haven't made a habit of having gnarly crashes while wearing these, and i would doubt they would hold up well to downhill wrecks.

The pockets are made of a really light mesh. I've had no issues with these shorts yet, but had the mesh tear on an old pair of fox sergeants. It was easily stitched back together, but it still seems like a stronger material could be used and you wouldn't have to worry about losing your keys.

i picked these up to go with my 661 evo wired helmet, and they work great. i don't know that goggles without outriggers wouldn't have also fit so well, but i can say that these goggles with the outriggers fit great!

i've had no problems with fogging while riding, but if you just finished a run and leave them and your helmet on, your breath will fog them a little. likewise, if you're not moving, your face can heat up pretty quickly. but as soon as you start downhill, lots of cool air rushes in.

I don't have a lot of experience with full face helmets, but the fit of the evo wired is great. other reviewers are correct that it fits tighter around the jaw, but i didn't find it uncomfortable and didn't notice while riding. i personally like the snug, secure feeling. it was awkward to get headphones in with the helmet on, but after i did they felt fine.

it's pretty toasty in the helmet when you're not moving (like i imagine all the full faces i haven't tried are) but cools off quickly once you start cruising. and most importantly, it matches my bike colors, otherwise i'd just wear a hat...

the idea of a dropper post is great. it absolutely takes your riding to another level if you typically shun shuttles but still like descents with some gnar. getting one that works correctly is apparently harder. but the ks lev works nearly flawlessly. only trick is you can't be forward on your saddle while trying to drop it. but you figure it out quickly and then it's great. i have NEVER had the post move on me. i have also bashed up the trigger and it barely shows it and works just as well as day one.
