Everything about these shorts (which by the way I got on sale since I would never have paid the original price) is very pleasing, except as I noted in Cons, they are not for really hot weather. Well designed: a higher waist and smooth waistband, snug fit (I got an XS, true to size), four integrated and hidden pockets,--two are angled zippers at the hip and two are on the leg and are accessed under a little flap. I love it that the fit is snug, not at all uncomfortably so, and the look is sleek. The little articulated flap at the knee is perfect for me, since I have knobby-looking knees. However, I don't recommend these for casual cycling-- this same knee design becomes a slight impediment to the cycling motion. Anyway, these are well made and designed, and feel good on (except on hot days)-- you forget you have them on.
