got the 32x12, when standing they fall a little more than an inch below the knee, and when riding they are slightly higher than knee level, which is perfect. It's not worth paying over 100 for mtb shorts, these are great for under 70!
This is a perfect lightweight pack for XC or all mountain riding. I got it because I was looking for something lightweight, but still has some storage room. And this was perfect. It is very comfortable, and looks really good.
The only thing I don't like is the way you take in and out the water reservoir, its kind of tricky to do, but its not that bad.
