Weaknesses: The only one I can think of is sizing because I am a 34" waist the L is too small for me now.
This is one of the best shorts out there. I stumbled apon this MTB short at a sale at our local Sun & Ski Sports about four years ago and it has been a pleasure ever since. It has suvived falls and multiple washings with no problem. The construction of this short is bomb proof. Also, it may not state it in the short discription given on Oakley's website but this short does have a non removable spandex inner lining with a decent saddle pad. You may hesitate because this is an Oakley product, but let me tell you they did their homework. It has pockets and vents in all the right places. Give this short a try if you can find a store that still carries Oakley apparel. Apparently now you can only purchase online.
