I actually bought these, returned them, then bought them again

When I first got them I was hoping for a more casual pair of shorts that was technical enough for riding. When I got them they were waaaay tighter than I had expected. I'm a 32 waist, so ordered the medium and the legs were stretched tight... not exactly daily wear shorts. Tried the large, which were still sort of tight in the thigh but way too big in the waist. So I returned them.

Fast forward a season and I've owned the Medium's again for a while and love them. I realized I don't need to use them as casual shorts, but they're perfect for commuting to work or general riding on weekends. They still look like 'normal' shorts when i'm riding to work or walking from my bike to the office. I'm also getting more into road biking, and these work as a great alternative if you're not quite ready to dive into full whole spandex/lycra kit. They stretch, they're durable so far, and they're all around great for riding.

They aren't exactly daily-wear casual shorts, but the do fit a purpose and I'm a fan.

(front pockets are a little shallow though...)
