I wish the zip pocket was big enough for my phone
These shorts are so comfortable with the right amount of stretch. I’m 6’ tall and the fit is perfect. The pockets are a great size for my phone or bar for a quick ride. The fabric is durable, too. The shorts have already been through some brambles and rocks and still look new.
I have a pair of Showers Pass shorts and I like these much more. I am 5’6” and hover between 145-150 pounds. I have a 35” waist and a ~40” hip and the medium is probably perfect for me, though they are still very loose. Part of me wondered if i should exchange them for a small, but i decided to keep them since my other pair of shorts feel slightly too snug on the waist. These will be so nice to not feel constricted there. I still might buy a small just to check them out in that size and have them on hand as an option. The waist the mediums that I purchased sits gently on me. if I bend over there is a small gap of space in the back a little that i don’t fill out, so I am a little concerned about how that will present as I’m hunched over riding... maybe i wear a longer in back shirt or who knows, It might not even be noticeable at all when i ride. LOL... That’s right... i haven’t ridden in them yet (we have snow!) LOL. Can’t wait to try them out for real though. Keeping an eye out for another sale on these so i can pick up a size small in this same style. The fabric is perfect, I love the zipper angle on the side of the leg and I’m guessing i could wear these comfortably all day long...even off the bike.
I was concerned about the looser fit as I hate short slippage during a ride but with the simple elastic band, they cinch down and stay in place. Super lightweight fabric slides well no saddle. Two rides in, so far, so good. Zip thigh pocket perfect for phone (keep doing this on your mtb shorts!).
