They breathe great and are nice and light weight. Very durable and well constructed. But...
I can't tell if its from the liner or the shorts, but they give me just a little resistance on my upper thighs while pedalling. I would assume this is a fit issue, but they otherwise fit awesomely.
The removable liner is mesh and feels like I should wear underwear with it. But mesh breathes well, right?

got this for our 7 year old aspiring downhill, dirt jumping mtb phenom. He thinks it's very cool looking and fits well (he likes to wear stuff big though) construction is very high quality and the fabric seems to agree with h his sensitive skin.

These are great shorts. Super well made and comfortable, however they are not a 4 way stretch material. I wear a solid 36" and the XL fits me without utilizing the velcro straps. The XL fits more like a 34-36.

These are my go-to mild to warm weather glove. Fit is normal; no abnormally long or short fingers, all are the right length, especially in the critical index finger. Large is a size 9. Very breathable backs with no padding palm, quality stitching and just a big of finger padding. That padding probably should extend another 1/2" up over the knuckles for errant trees and branches but the breathability is increased this was so it's a wash. Stitching is good quality, my last Royal gloves have gone 2 years of 3x/week in the spring and fall use so I'm expecting these to fill in for warmer weather.

I was looking for women's bicycling gloves, and found these in an XS. They just arrived and I am very pleased. They, ah, fit like a glove. Very comfy. Lots of mobility. I expected them to be a little heavier/bulkier, but they will be fine for keeping my hands from getting chapped and give some protection.
