Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have two pairs of these shorts. One with a liner, one without. Love them. I am 5-11, 230 lbs. XL fits perfectly. The liner was not for me, too thin. The shorts have plenty of pockets. They breathe well, and stretch to move with you. As far as length, they just touch the top of my knee. The atomic color is pear green. Maybe a little darker than the picture.

I like some things about these shorts, and I hate some things about these shorts. Love the fit, material and liner. XL fits great (5' 11", 220). length is just above the knee. Material stretches nicely. The liner breathes well, and has lots of padding for longer rides. Hate (Ok, hate is a little strong) the snaps and the BOA adjustments. The snaps will unsnap occasionally. The BOA adjustments are a cool concept, but not really necessary. You can dial the waist adjustment, which is easy and cool, but the adjusters will also pop open once in a while. They are more of a gimmick than anything. Velcro would have been fine. Overall, I would say I like the shorts since they fit great, and breathe well.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I love almost everything about these shorts, but the length. The shorts go to the bottom of my knees. I prefer my shorts to be near the top of my knee.

The material is very light and stretchy. Good venting, and enough pocket space to get by. I am 5' 11", 220, and the XL fit well in the waist, rear, and legs. I have a pair of Sugoi RSX shorts that are made of similar material. They are holding up well after a dozen or so rides and a couple falls. I would assume these would hold up just as well.

The liner seems OK, but I did not ride in them. I have both the RC100 and Formula FX liners made by Sugoi. The RC Pro is in between the two in terms of padding. I regularly ride all day in the Formula FX liners. The RC100s are left for short rides when nothing else is clean.

Fit seems inline with other cycling apparel. I am 5'11", 215 lb. The XL fits with plenty of room for waist adjustment. Shorts come to just above the knee. The liner breathes well, and fits perfectly. It is shorter than my PI Attacks. The liner is a mesh material and very thin. It cannot be worn by itself. The chamois is fine for rides of an hour or maybe two. I would not wear the liner for an all day ride. Overall quality seems very good. There is no damage or signs of wear after 25+ rides and several spills

Bought one off SAC a few years ago for skiing. Keeps the water in a liquid state as advertised. The pack is pretty thin, and fits easily under my jacket. Straps are comfortable and have plenty of room. I'm 6', 230 and it fits fine. The pocket on mine is different from the current version, and does not hold much. Maybe keys, a wallet and an energy bar. Plenty of pockets in my jacket, so not an issue for me.
