Rated 1 out of 5 by DHVIQ Non durable
I bought this back in April 2013 and they ripped in the crotch area within 5 visits to the bike park. I contacted rockgardn directly and sent them in as instructed. I got an email from the rep telling me that although the were under warranty they could not replace them because this was not a craftsmanship issue that it seemed as though the got ripped with the nose part of the saddle and all they would do is sell me another pair at dealer price. My friend bought the same ones and the same thing happened to him a few days later. CHEAP MATERIAL

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not So Bad
Have owned these shorts for about 2 months, and have served me well, have done some XC and DH with them are a suitable for both. But a small rip came in the crotch area, which only got bigger as i rode, currently they are in bits and im seeking a new make of dh shorts, these served me well the time I had them, I could of been just the unlucky one to rip them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Strong, comfortable and look great
I came off my downhill bike yesterday crashing at 50kph across rocks and these shorts saved my legs big time. I had my arm guards and chest plate shredded from sliding over rocks but the shorts dont have a mark on them. One of my thighs copped a big hit from a rock (currently has a haematoma and some bruising), but the shorts were strong enough to stop the rock from puncturing through and taking skin. These shorts are very comfortable, even when wet and they look good. I highly recommend them.

Update on previous review:
2 years on and all three zips have given up the will to live. Shorts still in great nick. I'd rate these 5 out of 5 if the zips had lasted longer. Good heavy duty shorts.

Love these shorts fits really well and the adjustability of them is great,
only issue I would really say is the length they are a tad short for me and tend to catch as I cycle between the back of my knee.
However not a major issue and would recomment them to all

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Good heavy duty short for DH
I've owned these for about three months. A Good heavy duty short with two side pockets and a rear pocket. Good adjustment via velcro tabs at side and heavy duty poppers at front.
Great DH shorts.
