Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These are comfortable, flow air well, move well, and fit perfectly. My waist and thigh measurements usually mean I have to size up to the point that the leg openings are huge, but not with these! I tried these out after wearing a bib for the past year and a half of riding, and I am really happy with the fit.
I feel that these shorts are significantly overpriced. There might be some high tech fabrics in the outer layer, but the inner layer feels cheap and the padding is completely worthless. It's just very thin padding that compresses all the way with a very soft pinch .... no benefit here. For this price point, I think it's reasonable to expect higher quality padding.
