Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous shorter than it should be
Despite the waist length is more than I normally wear, they fit well around my waist and upper legs. They are quite comfy while standing, i easily bend my knees and walk. But once I'm on a bike the trousers appear to be not long enough for my knees to match the articulated knee parts, they pull up and wrinkle near the pockets. So if you are wearing 33-34 inches trousers and your hight is about 188-190 cm just like mine, the "L" size which seems ok at a glance won't be enough for pedaling, unless your legs are shorter than average.
I had no problems with other Endura's garments before. M and L sizes were quite usual.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Fit and Quality is poor
The overall watrproof quality of these shorts is great. the problem I have had is with the fit and the seams. The fit is poor because the shorts seem to ride very low on your waist and the groin area does not seem to be roomy enough giving an overall feeling that the shorts are coming down while riding. I got the large and am not a bloater and yet this is a real problem for comfort as you feel you should be pulling them up every few minutes and my mates give me a hard time because my butt crack is on display. The legs are to long form me and they look more like 7/8ths rather than 3/4. It is like I'm wearing my Dad's shorts. Final nail in the Endura Coffin is that the seams have seprated on the inside of the pockets rendering them useless. I have lost a wedding ring and £20 due to this flaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Falls apart at the seams
The PTFE fabric range from Endura are the Achilles heal of what is a fantastic clothing company.
So what's the issue? Well the glue used to weld the seams to the PTFE material is not fit for purpose. The pockets are not stitched and the first time I put my hands in they went straight through to my legs. Also when you wash them, as per the guide lines, the seam glue just seams to melt slowly allowing the seams to work loose. The design and materials used are not fit for purpose as they should be able to withstand ordinary use and care.
This issue was not limited to my shorts, as my Venturi II jacket and over trouser literally fell apart at the seam. Endura were quick to replace but fundamentally the product is flawed so the replacement is of no use!
