Rated 4 out of 5 by Dancing penguin Comfortable, cool, nice pockets, with one little flaw
I ride a "comfort" pedal-forward Day6 bike, so I am basically "sitting on a cushioned barstool with pedals". As such, I don't need padding; I simply want comfortable cool shorts. These Tour shorts meet my criteria. No resticted movement of my legs (or my waist because the waist tie is elastic.) Having pockets is great, especially the zipper pocket.
My only complaint: The zipper pull broke off...no big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by scowill Love these shorts!
I have two pairs of these shorts, mainly because i wear them all the time and i got the second pair for £16 from Halfords in the sale!
When i say i wear them all the time, i mean literally all the time. If i'm not at work then i have them on. I have only used them for cycling once and they were great, but i mainly use them for knocking about the house, on holiday, walking the dog etc.
The quality is great as usual from Gore but what i like about them most is the material they are made from. Really lightweight and thin fabric, but feels tough and hardwearing at the same time. They have a lightly elasticated waist and three pockets, one of which is zippered.
I'm a 34" waist and have the size large and they are pretty good fit, although i wouldn't mind trying the XL to compare. Who knows, if i find them on sale again i might buy some!
Fantastic shorts for summer or for wearing around the house if your wife always has the heating on like mine, or for cycling :)
