Comments about REI Igneo Long Shorts - Men's:
I commute on my bike daily to an office with an Austin-casual dress code, which is to say that shorts are pretty common. My usual riding gear consists of loose and super-breathable workout shirts and shorts, which are a bit too casual even for our easygoing cube farm. Enter the Igneo Long Shorts: sharp-looking, super-comfortable, knee-obscuring, and breeze-permeable. They're a definite upgrade over the cheap and bulky cotton cargo shorts which have been my go-to bottom for years. Where the cotton cargos have a tendency to soak up sweat and allow it to linger (hence my preference for synthetic workout shorts for the commute), these leave me dry and comfy, able to march from my bike straight to my desk when combined with a Sahara Tech shirt.
A note on fit: they run big, which I appreciate. My waist measures about 46" around, but the 42" waist size fits comfortably without stretching too much to encircle my girth.
A note on value: these fine shorts do come a bit dearly (I snapped them up using a generous coupon and some dividend cash), but if they were made in more colors, I'd certainly consider invensing in several more pairs.
