These shorts are very comfortable. The padding holds snug with no movement. Tight fit but material very stretchy and durable. Maybe a little thicker than some shorts but comfortable. I like the fact that they are made in the USA.
I am about 5'9" and 185 and a little overweight in the belly and wear 33-34" jeans. The Medium size fits well and snug. If I was any bigger in the hips i'd have to go up a size.
