Steve Tamwrote a review of Dynafit Transalper DST Short - Men's on July 29, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is my second set of Dynafit shorts and I have to say they are quite outstanding. The fit, construction, and materials are well thought out and offer amazing mobility despite what activity you use them for.
Sizing wise these fit true to size. I have a set of Dynafit Shore shorts and they ran large compared to these (for reference the shore shorts are size small and the Transalper shorts are medium). I ordered the Transalper in a small but the legs were too snug however the waist was fine. The mediums fit my thunder thighs with room to spare but I have to crank down the waistâ¦.which leads me to the waist adjusters. They are low profile and work well but I just have a personal issue with velcro tab closures. Velcro wreaks havoc on any type of performance wicking shirt, whether its your bike jersey, running shirt, or so forth. Make sure the waist is perfectly adjusted before you head out or donât mess with them on the trail so you donât ruin your top garment. Iâd love to see some type of adjustable strap instead. There is also velcro at the waist button but no issue with snagging your shirt there.
Durability wise, if these are anything like the shore short, they will hold up well.
Overall you wonât be disappointed with these shorts at all. The only disappointment youâll have is when they are out of stock in your size.
