These shorts are very fitting on the legs, although roomy on the waist.
I have pretty large quads, so I usually go for an XL when buying other brands like Adidas and Under Armour, so I thought these would do the trick - for the most part they do, however there are some activities they are simply not great for.
For running they are fantastic, however if like me, you're mainly going to wear them to gym, I wouldn't advise training legs in them or doing other exercises which involve sitting on a machine or bench. When squatting, I feel as if the shorts as going to rip at the back as they ride up quite high.
As a result, I went back to using my baggier Adidas shorts on days when I do weight training.
The internal pocket at the back of the waistband is handy, however is rather small and does not have a zip. It probably wouldn't fit more than a locker key and possibly a few coins in, although it does feel very secure when you have the shorts on.
although for Cardio I can't fault them.
