Strengths:    Very durable fabric (Cordura). Has withstood many rides, falls, and washes without any tears or damage. Very comfortable, not too baggy, simply and not terribly unstylish.

Weaknesses:    No liner or padding, but that can be added with some padded underwear.

Bottom Line:   
These shorts are an excellent value for the life you'll get out of them. I was quite surprised that they've survived as many rides, falls, and washes as they have. Cordura's abrasion resistance is remarkable as I've slid down steep rocky faces for quite some time before and the shorts have been unscathed. The fit is excellent as well. The color is neutral and works well with pretty much any colored jersey (for the color conscious). Not overpriced, Canadian made, excellent value.
