Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Receiving a pair of shorts in the correct size was frustrating, because pants sizes are not just sized by waist size so I went through a few pairs before getting the right size.
The shorts themselves are cutoff right after my knee, which means they work well with Fox's Launch Pro knee pads.
The shorts are comfortable as well, even on very long rides (all day), and very durable. Highly recommended.
