I'll agree that sometimes the patch doesn't hold, and that is frustrating. Often there will be a wrinkle in the patch. But, 90% of the time though these patches have held and worked for me. I've had a couple of tubes that had a couple of these patches and they lasted a whole season. Small and easy to carry.

Doesn't quite fit in my seat bag for a local short single track. If I break it down then I can put it in my seat bag with a patch kit, but no tube. It's a nice upgrade from my last CO2 pump. Good concept though. I have the Innovations Secondwind Road Aluminum Mini CO2 Inflator that I've used for years and is great to have the option to inflate manually if needed. I wanted something smaller and easier to carry on a trail with no pack.

The material on these is great. I wanted something a bit lighter than the Stretch Zion. These were perfect, but the 34's don't fit quite the same as the 34's of the Zion. The inseam is shorter and the legs itself were tighter. I think I would need a 36.

Zippered front pocket isn't huge, it can hold my phone which is about all I want to carry. The material of these shorts is awesome for warm weather riding. Super light and stretchy. I bought a 34 for biking but may buy a 36 for more casual wear. I could use these shorts for just about anything. The zippered back pocket is a plus. The two front pockets are OK but not deep by any means.
I don't use the drawstring on the size 34 they are a perfect fit.

Using this on a 2015 Santa Cruz Nomad. This works well for the most part, the design of the bike is the problem. Once I got the cage assembled the next problem was finding a decent size water bottle. Camelbak 21 oz podium barely fits, the lid rubs the shock just barely.. a 12oz may fit better. I don't usually get the water unless I'm turning around from an out and back ride or pulled off the trail for a breather. The 21oz takes some extra unf to get back in the cage.

I've been using Pedro's but thought I would try this for the spring. It does attract a lot of dust, so if it isn't packed or somewhat wet then I'd go with a dry lube.
Con - the nozzle allows too much to come out without even squeezing. I feel like it's a lot of lube lost because I try to get each pin with a small amount of lube.

For those quick single track rides where I don't need a pack but the "just in case" necessities .. fits a tube, levers, multi-tool and CO2 cartridge and nozzle. Prob could cram some more if I needed. Fits on a SC Nomad with seat dropper just fine.

Good material and mobility. The fit stops just above my knee.
I bought L originally but I'm going to swap for a XL. I wear a rash guard underneath and need a little extra space It was very tight on me and not comfortable to sit and lounge.

I bought these looking for an alternative to the Volcom Frickin Modern Stretch Short . I have a few pair of the Volcom and wanted to expand out from them... these are very comparable. So much so that I'm returning them because they fit almost the exact same. I was looking for something slightly longer.
The material is great with excellent mobility.
I've been wearing 34 with some Prana stretch Zion shorts, so I got 34 in these but would most likely want a 36 to make them fit more comfortably. 6' 200lbs

6' 200lbs and got an L. It's just a little too tight for my liking. I need more room. I wear the Fox Racing Sergeant Shorts mostly.. or a style similar to that and this jersey needed a small frame to look/fit right. I think if I could get this in an XL I would be stoked. The material, the 1/4 zip, and pocket were all on point.

I wear an 11 and the size 11 fit.
I'm new to trail running. I'm trying it as continuing rehab for a broken foot. Doc says I need to run and I'm not too stoked to run on a road or treadmill. So I tried a few times in regular hiking shoes and I could tell that they were not meant for that purpose. I bought these and I've only been a handful of times (3 miles max each time). They fit true to size . They are light and have great grip/traction.
The sockliner feels good on my foot where I need great support. I haven't had any variable terrain or weather, dry conditions on packed and loose rock foothill trails. But so far so good.

The taller look along with not as "fluffy" fur around the top were the selling points for this gift. They have worked great in single digit and above weather. She has worn these shoveling snow, walking in town or packed trails in the foothills. Very comfortable and very warm. True to size.

My brother lives by these shoes. So when his last pair bit the dust I knew what to get him for a gift. He did go 1 size up. Usually he gets an 11 but after his last pair got wet and dried in the sun they fit too snug. He says the 12's fit great and allows room to wear thicker socks. He assumes after getting wet this winter and spring they will also shrink slightly. His feet stay warm and dry for the most part and they are comfortable.
