Very comfortable around the apartment and on my bike. The reinforced crotch also serves as mild padding, but it definitely doesn't look weird. The seat belt strap to hold a ulock is still a question mark for me. I wish I could cover it up with a belt, but the design has the belt underneath the strap. It's odd, the reflective logo is under the belt and the strap is over the belt. It works ok, because the belt covers up the heavy branding on the label. Honestly, I would prefer a change / coin pocket over the seat belt. But the fit is the best amongst all the chrome shorts: natoma, seneca, union and folsom. I generally do not tuck in my shirt so it's not really a problem visually with the seat belt strap. It's just not that useful to me and I ride every day in NYC and carry a ulock. I just always have a bag. The cardiel shank for example. Or other hip packs to avoid sweaty back. In sub 50 temps a backpack works better for holding a lock. Frankly, it's preferable to stash a lock inside a bag when it's very cold. If you have ever had a near frozen ulock touch your bare skin, it's unpleasant. Though, I don't wear shorts when it's too cold. These shorts deserves a decent pocket. Fit is great. Length is great. Pockets need the smallest amount of love. More colors would be awesome, but I'll happily pickup additional pairs as my budget allows. Chrome should sell a webbed belt that can somehow, carry a ulock without looking stupid. Then any pair of pants or shorts could facilitate the same convenience as is intended for the folsom shorts, without forcing the feature into the basic design. All that said, the seat belt / belt works well for attaching a dklein feed bag. I think I'll eventually grow attached to the seat belt strap, but for now, I'm still unsure how it fits.
