Great shorts for Mountain bikingMy first pair of these shorts I bought 3 years ago for MTB riding. They are extremely comfortable, a great length, good secure pockets, nice thick waist band with adjusters so they don't slide down, and quite a high back which is rather handy for on the bike. They might be described as quite baggy, but as a bloke with mahoosive legs and with knee pads on, they are perfect.
Light enough and breathable for summer over light bib shorts, but also perfect for winter rides due to softshell material that keeps wind and spray at bay. After three years however, they were done, as the material eventually loses its water repelancy and acts more like a sponge! But, three years of 2x a week use in all weathers is pretty good VFM. Bought 2 more pairs this week as replacements :-)
FWIW, I also have the biking specific flex 1 shorts, which I like too, but they are much heavier and with too many bells and whistles. For most rides, I prefer the /29s
