Great value

I've used it several times

Wanted something of equal quality as my PI Attack shorts, but for a lower price. These are perfect. I think I like these LG's better, to be honest. Fit great. Look better aesthetically than PI. Pad is good, little side pocket is handy. With 20% off coupon, the price/quality ratio is hard to match. Will definitely buy again.

I've put it through the wringer

Fit great, feel comfortable. Love the drawstring waist. Thick padding allows me to ride for hours in them. I have some older Garneau shorts and tights that are still going strong and I will definitely be back for more.

Terrible design

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I?ve had tons of shorts. I really thought I?d like these. The main crotch seem placement is BAD. I got rubbed raw on both sides under 40 miles. I will return them if possible. Worst shorts I?ve owned. And I don?t ever leave bad reviews.
