I wore these shorts for the very first time at the Mag 7 Enduro MTB race in Moab. I love them. I found them to be very functional, stylish, and comfortable. These shorts are not as stretchy as the Caddoa. I own both styles of shorts (size medium) and the waist in the Norrie runs a tiny bit on the smaller side in comparison to the Caddoa. If you want a baggier fit, you will need to size up. I plan on wearing these shorts until they fall apart.
