I've read complaints that these fit snug. To be fair, they are supposed to: they're slim fit technical shorts for the sporting type. If you want more room I'd try the Ferrosi shorts, which are a lot more spacious (I tried Wadi Rum and Ferrosi). Too much so for me: I'm 6'1" and 178 lbs, with skinny cyclist legs. I'm not necessarily skinny, but fairly lean. And I like a *slightly slimmer* fit. At least I often struggle to find clothes that don't feel like I'm putting on a parachute. These are the inspector gadget of shorts: they're some of the most aggressively functional clothes I've ever owned, but they hide that function in a streamlined, around-town look. They're unequivocally the best shorts I've ever owned. They stretch, they're durable, I've worn them hiking, biking, running, swimming, around town, working out in the gym, and even sleeping. They're extremely comfortable and functional without that overtly technical look--they're technical shorts in disguise. If I wear them out, I'll buy another pair. If I need to expand my color palette, I'll buy another pair. Heck, I'll even forego buying other clothes that don't match these shorts well enough. LOVE!
