NickyGwrote a review of DAKINE Pace Short - Men's on June 22, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Nice lightweight pair of riding shorts with no heavy liner to weigh them down. The lightweight, stretchy fabric breathes well & dries pretty quickly. There's no liner short or liner material like Dakine's heavier-duty freeride shorts, so you stay much cooler. They look so good & are so comfy that I tend to wear them much more for casual wear than for riding. Suitable for XC riding in a wide range of temps & would even make a great swim trunk if you found a suitable swimming hole on your ride or hike.
I'm 6' 5" with a 36" waist & the XL fits me perfectly. The 14" inseam is perfect!
