These shorts are nothing short of, amazing. I wear them for just about everything now. Instructing xc skiing to biking in winter. While traveling, I have worn these shorts for 4 days before washing-- they still didn't smell! Even after multiple days of wear, they hold you securely. The comfort from wool on your loins is unmatched by any other fabric. Ibex does another amazing job making a bomb proof garment. My only thing against this is I should have bought more than one.
