Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this pair of shorts in addition to the Zinnia shorts. I think overall, these are a more functional pair for what they are designed for. Good DH shorts for a day in the bike park. Nice sized side pocket for stuff (snack, keys, pass, tool, probably phone would fit too). The fabric is nice and stretchy and comfortable, there is a mesh liner, so these would be too hot for a long pedally ride (maybe good in the cold!). These run pretty big, I am typically a large and got a medium, almost think I could have pulled off a small. I wear a size 8/29 in pants, typically size large in most bike short brands. The cinchers are nice, but they are very flappy and kinda get in the way. I do like the nice bright color of the pink, but just know they are very pink.

The Sombrio Zinnia shorts are a comfortable pair of bike shorts for longer rides. The fabric is fairly lightweight, but still strong. My complaint is the fit, they run large and stretch out quickly when riding, and the waist has no cinchers. I am typically a size large (8/29 pants) in most bike shorts and took a size medium, I almost think a small could have worked once stretched out... The pockets on the back are pretty nice, there's nothing getting in the way of pedaling. I also wish that Sombrio would sell these with a chamois.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these in the red in an XL. I am 5'7"150 lb 29 waist, 40 hips with larger thighs, and they fit slightly loose, like I was hoping for. The fabric is slightly stretchy and durable. I wear them for XC riding and downhill, very comfortable for both. Wish they came with a chamois, but I already have a couple so I can live with it.
