I prefer my over shorts to be less baggy and these fit the bill. I had to size up a full size and the larges fit like a snug medium. So definitely size up one size from your "normal" size. The shorts are super comfortable for trail riding or gravel adventures. They are stretchy in all the right areas and I'm not snagging them on the saddle like baggier shorts. Has DWR coating but isn't a loud or stiff fabric which is nice. The shorts have two zipper pockets on each side. As a transitioning dirt roadie to trail rider, these are the shorts I prefer for trail riding.

Normal Pant size (32) As someone who comes from a road discipline, I decided to take a chance on these shorts. And I wasn’t the least bit disappointed with them. I’ve now used them for hiking and biking equally and I love how they feel. The DWR treatment makes them rugged enough for days out on the trail, but they also stay stretchy enough that I don’t have to worry about them getting to uncomfortable over time. They have two zipper pockets (one on each hip). Belt loops on the outside, or adjustable/elastic waistbands on the inside if you prefer. Even outside of cycling, I don’t wear shorts often because I find that they’re either too long or too short. These fall right at the right length on my legs to where I don’t feel like a basketball player from the 90’s and they don’t get in the way while I’m riding. Comfortable, durable and good looking. Definitely a worthy short.
