Strength:

Lightweight, breathable, comfortable, durable, padded, good lookin' shorts!

Weakness:

not as tough as, say, Roach indy shorts, but much lighter and breathable and they still hold up on some nasty spills, so you can't really call themm 'weak'.

If these fit you good, and you're not bombing down nearly vertical trails, navigating 30' high skinnies, and swiftly launching 6 footers, buy em. You'll love em. (if you are the Roach ones might be worth the heat cause they'll save your skin on those kinda crashes where you don't get up and walk away)

Strength:

Sugoi-means excellent in Japanese, been pretty excellent to me so far. They look really good and they are damn comfortable. Lots of handy pockets. Tough, durable fabric that is easy to wash and has so far avoided being ripped despite numerous spills.

Weakness:

um nothing

An excellent looking and wearing product. I recommend these to anyone looking for a decent baggy short.

Strength:

Nice fabric inside and out

Weakness:

one drawstring fell out in the washing machine before I could ever even use it

Very comfortable shorts, with good chamois that doesn't fall apart like some other brands do. They could use an elastic gusset like swobo and zoic and some other brands use, because sometimes when you sit down in a not-so-careful manner the shorts do this weird thing that kind of pulls your butt cheeks together and makes it so you are slightly restricted on the downward motion of your pedal stroke. Other than that, I have ridden them and raced them weekly since I got them at REI at the beginning of this semester. I wear them to class and don't have to bring along something in my backpack to cover up the standard lycra, which is nice since my commute by bicycle is over twenty miles each way. I do wish they weren't quite so expensive, and that the drawstring hadn't fallen out on its own, so I'm giving four stars.
