I was looking for a pair of quality shorts when I ordered these. When they say a tight fit they mean it. According to the chart I should have easily fit into a large, but wrestling with these to get them on was a challenge I was not up to every time I want to ride my bike. I ordered the white and black and did not like the fact you could see through the white material. They had a great chamios in it, and the legs where a great length too. May try the larger size in all black.
