Rated4out of5byKaty Trail RiderfromI LIKE ITI wanted to say I am pretty stout. 6'1" tall and weigh 225 with a 38 inch waist and long trunk. So I went with the 3XL and the fit was excellent - and the feel was relaxed/a little loose not tight. I have big thighs so I don't mind if the waist is not skin tight because yeah I have a gut. I previously had purchased a Castelli product in 2XL and it felt tight in the crotch and legs. I had heard that Castelli was European fit so went with the bigger size. I mostly ride a road bike and on my last trip of about 55 miles the shorts felt great. The padding was adequate and the leg bands kept the legs of the shorts in place. Was quite pleased with this purchase. I admittedly don't know much about biking clothing and the aspects on which to evaluate it.
