Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
First off, I absolutely love the placement of the zippered pockets on the thighs. I have used these to store my phone, wallet, keys and snacks during the ride and never noticed the pockets while pedaling. I would prefer the waist to have a bit more adjustment and for the two hand pockets to have zippers as well. I did size up for a bit of extra room through the hips, and as such, the shorts do tend to ride low - just can't get them snug enough for an entire ride.
