Lakes based mostly mountain biking type, with the odd foray into gravel, 'cross and even road. Fuelled by coffee and porridge. Driver of Van. Known to race at times. Happy place being out the door and in the hills - local or further afield, all is good with two wheels in the dirt.

Sorry but I have to disagree with this review. I've been using these for 3 weeks now on some pretty big rides and they are the most comfortable MTB shorts I've ever used. The material feels high quality and the 2-way stretch is usually only found and much more expensive shorts. The pockets are huge and easily swallowed a phone or compact camera, keys and snacks.

I have a 36/37" waist with quite chunky legs and the XL fit me very well. The stretchy material and cut means the legs aren't restrictive or too flappy, you almost forget your wearing them.

Then we come to price, at £30 they are about half the price of similar quality shorts from more well-known brands. I've tried Endura Hummvee's in XL which came up more like a Large and the material felt stiff/not stretchy enough, so I returned those. I also tried the Madison Zenith shorts, these were nice shorts but I found the legs were rather too flappy and the XL slightly too large for me.
