The price was reasonable, and they look nice. My waist size is 29.5 inches and these shorts fit comfortably in the waist, and the length is good, but the elastic in the leg cuffs is much too tight. I have been trying to stretch them out. Also, the padding in the crotch is bare minimum but adequate for an hour in the saddle. I prefer the fit and feel of my Sugio tri shorts and think I will continue to use Sugio in the future.

These are great workout shorts for running, biking, etc. Could certainly swim in them too.
Medium weight fabric, good cut, no bunching. Should be durable.
Just a little pad in the crotch, much less than true bike shorts.
Leg elastic seems tight on first wearing, may relax.

im 6'2 185lbs and these shorts are perfect, at first they seem tight but when sprinting out of the water into T1 they feel great.. the tri pad is great and shorts feel good on the run.. overall quality seems very good.. im very happy with my purchase

This is my fmuscair of tri shorts. They fit true to size and perform well. I took them on a 20 mile ride the other day and couldn't tell the difference between them and a pair of bike shorts I ordered. My only suggestion would be to change the cut a little. I am 5'8" 190lbs and ordered a large. I am pretty muscular in the legs and hips. A more flexible cut in the hips area would be nice.

I bought a pair of $80 2XU long course fancy tri-shorts... and only got chafing out of the pad. These have a nice, comfy pad and seams that work for me. I use them as my "everyday" pair of training shorts. great for bricks and intervals. Little short, they hit me mid thigh, but good compression. This is my second set of Orca shorts, the first one is over a year old and still reliable and in great condition.
