Great shorts

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Sizing was the main concern for me, but I followed a couple of other user reviews and sized down. My waist measures at 36 and I ordered a size 34 from TheClymb. I can slip these shorts on without undoing the button/zipper. They fit a little loose, but not enough to tighten with a belt. They have a lot of pockets and zippers, which was the main reason I got them (to ride my bike). They are relatively long for shorts. I'm 5 8" and they drop well past the knees. Took them on an easy 5 mile ride the other day and they were great.

Edit: These are closer to knickers on me than shorts. My wife saw me wear them and said "I like those knickers". I tried to convince her they were shorts, but they are really between knickers and shorts in terms of length. That doesn't bother me as I wear knickers for cycling anyways.
