overall I like the shorts, but the liner fits pretty bad. Luckily I have bibs with way better pads to wear under them anyway. I am 5'9" 32"inseam and 31"waist. long legs. I usually wear a 32x32 in levis 511 and they are perfect in my waist but snug on my hips, butt, and thighs. The shorts are a loose fit on me but the slack is taken up with the straps on the inside waist of the shorts. With the straps fully open I can stick my hand in-between the shorts and myself very easily. Length wise they sit just below my knee cap. The shorts are on the thinner side but will be great for riding on hot days. My only other mtb specific short is the Troy Lee Designs connect short in a 30. Those are snug, thin and super stretchy. Awesome shorts but I should of bought the 32 for the bike. Now they are my fave everyday chill, hike, climb, whatever short.

The liner fits me pretty terribly. I think its made for a person with a super long torso and HUGE butt/hips; not me:) I was hoping it would fit because the material seemed like it would breathe well on hot days and the pad is thinner and less bulky then my usual sugoi or castelli cham, which would be nice considering I'm out of my seat more mountain biking then on my road bike.

Overall I am happy with the short, especially at the great Sierra clearance price. Totally worth it. I am still pretty new to mtb and just wanted a short that my roadie bibs would fit under if needed, at a reasonable price; these totally fit the bill. Hope this helps!
