Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These things have been a game-changer for me. They are really light and the most comfortable riding shorts I currently own. Gone are the days of velcro tightening straps and fabric belts, these shorts come in a yoga pant style fit. Just pull them on and you are good to go. The elastic waistband is lined with rubber to ensure minimal slip. I ended up ordering the largest size possible to get a more trail style fit and while they are a little big around the waist they still stay put through all but the gnarliest descents. There are two zipper pockets with just enough space for a phone, your keys, and your nutrition. They are extremely light and water-resistant. I have worn them in temps ranging from 95 all the way down to 35-degree temps and they keep you cool when you want them too and help block the chilly wind when needed.
