Heavy Duty but heavy weight

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Upstate Traveler from Saratoga Springs, NY on Saturday, July 21, 2012
These shorts are certainly durable -- even a bit stiff and bulky. They get hot in summer use. I would characterize these shorts as mountain bike apparel because of their durability. If you are looking for summer wear, these may be too warm. I bought size medium, which is usually a 34 inch waist. These shorts measure 32 inches at the waist. With the elastic, they may fit, but if you were looking for a 34 inch waist, these will be a bit snug. Even with these reservations, I tend to wear these shorts almost daily on rides, so maybe I am getting used to them.
