Fit well and are comfortable but run big

Verified Buyer Reviewed by batmick from Carlsbad, CA on Tuesday, June 14, 2011
I have had good experience with Canari. The products offer very good value and these shorts are no exception. The padding is just enough to provide a good cushion without giving the diaper feeling. The material is good quality and the seams are well made. These should last a while.

The only problem with Canari is their erratic sizing. They tend to run large but these shorts are even larger. I am 6'4", 200 lbs and normally wear 36 waist pants. For most makes my bike shorts are XL but I chose an L from my previous experience with Canari. They are borderline fit for me. If I did not use these for commuting where I prefer a more relaxed fit I would probably exchange them for size M.
While this is flattering I wonder who would wear a Canari size XL? Bigfoot maybe?
