These shorts are true to size (6), very lightweight, and long enough to wear in public. I'm 55 and not interested in flashing too much skin. I hate shorts that 'ride up' your legs - and these don't do that. The pockets are deep enough to stash a cell phone without fear of it falling out when you sit down. Fabric is soft, comfortable, gives when you move. Great on the trail - and also around town.Just what I was looking for.
