Great fit. Great fabric. Pockets are awesome all around. The length could be a 1/2in longer to really perfect the fit. The shorts-baby made from combining the folsom 2.0 and seneca shorts might be what I consider the perfect shorts. Until that day, these are the least bike oriented shorts of all the clothing that Chrome designs. They easily go anywhere without looking like a wanna-be messenger. The moment I modeled them to my girlfriend, I was told to buy more. I've always been a cutoff jeans in the summer guy, so switching to real shorts is a change. They perform so much better in hot weather, it's a shame that I waited so long to buy quality clothes. Fabric isn't like the old-school noisy nylon, either. It's soft and stretchy and breathable. I do use a little caution when washing, because I have read about piling on some chrome fabrics. I wash in the washing machine, normal setting, and then hang to dry. These dry very quickly even in humid weather.
