The fit is exactly what I wanted! The shorts hit just below my knee, they are loose enough without being too loose.
I am 5'10 so I bought the long. When I stand the shorts cover my knees but when I ride they are right above the knee and the perfect length. They hold lots of stuff in the pockets. I also like that they don't ride down on the back so I can just focus on the fun and not adjusting my clothes! They are a nice athletic fabric too, I will be buying more. Thank you Shredly!
