What community has to say
Being on the slim side, these fit me perfectly. They seem to be made of durable material, but I haven't crash tested them yet. They have lots of pockets and come with a decent, padded pair of liner shorts. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Best adjustable and comfortable riding short I have ever tried (and I've tried many brands for all mountain riding & trail).
Really tough shorts with lots of pockets!
I've been looking for months to find a really tough pair of baggy shorts to replace my Oakley's. I need shorts that are made of a material that will take a crash on rocks and not rip out. The material in these pants is tough.
Also, I like tons of big zipper pockets to hold all my stuff that I want without taking my backpack off. These pants have them.
One nitpick and one fatal flaw (for me). The nitpick is that the waist adjustments are on the outside of the pant waist which causes a pucker of material on the inside against my skin. It gets uncomfortable real fast. The fatal flaw is that the short legs are not cut "baggy" and are only something like 20 inches at the bottom. Since my thighs are bigger than that, the pant rides up when I lift my leg over the bike and then I have to pull them down while riding. That's a pain on a rocky trail.
I had to send them back and just repaired my Oakley's. Unfortunately Oakley doesn't make the model of short I bought in 2007.
If Zoic would have a more generous cut in the pant leg, these would be perfect. Or if you have thin thighs, you'll love them.
Well Made Pants if Sizing is Right for You
These pants are made of heavy duty tough material and there are numerous pockets two of which are both zippered and velcroed. You must have the right body type to have these fit you however - - basically a very thin upper leg. I bought the XL according to the sizing chart and had to take the waist adjustment in all the way to get even a loose fit around the waist.
But the real problem occured in the legs. The leg is cut narrow and the pants kept hanging up on my upper leg so I had to pull the pant leg up when first starting to ride. Then after dismounting my bike and trying to remount, the pants were down so far that I couldn't spread my legs wide enough to clear the top tube when remounting. I checked the leg width of my old Oakleys while the pants were laying flat on a chair. At a point 6 inches above the cuff, they are 12 inches wide while the ZOICs are only 10 inches wide. They are not really baggy shorts, but more a cross between Lycra road bike shorts and real baggy shorts.
BUT, if you have the right body type, they are very well made.
