Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using a pair of these shorts for about a year now with no issues what so ever. The fit is true to size and there are enough pockets to handle my needs. The length is just about right for my tastes and the legs stay out of the way when pedaling. No snagging on the saddle either even if I don't use a dropper.
I'm a big fan of the rear pocket just below the waist. I normally keep my car keys in there instead of one of the leg pockets. I hate having anything heavy in the leg pockets because I can feel it when pedaling.
One feature that I'd like to see added is a tacky strip on the inner waist of the short. When I wear these over a set of bibs they tend to slip down more than I like. This is an issue with just about every set of shorts on the market and is not a knock on these. It's just something I'd like all short manufacturers to add to their shorts.
