Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Lightweight. Comfortable. Ergonomic. Go-to. What? That's right - these have become my go-to baggies. Assos? Yep. I've now logged a couple hundred miles+ of sweet singletrack in them, and I find myself reaching for these first and always.
The stretchy, seamless waistband paired with incredibly lightweight and breathable fabric is a win. The pockets, at first thought to be too inboard to properly hold a phone, are not -- my phone hangs perfectly at my thigh on one leg, and plenty of room for other provisions in the opposite pocket, all contained without flopping around.
These integrate perfectly with the Assos liner, which is pretty perfect.
Minor nit: I find the opening at the knee just a touch wider than necessary. If it was a bit more "tailored", it'd be perfect IMHO.
