First there is no adjustment to tighten the waist area. second the shamie is bad . I've only wore them once and will never again wear this product. Being that the shorts get stuck on the seat constantly. I m not one to return a product these were a waste of 90.00 bucks.
First, as usual, these fit perfectly as sized. The waist does adjust, but it's a bit finicky. Pockets are good, including an essential zippered pocket that's the right size for a cell phone, although a previous year's also had a back pocket I wouldn't mind. Other reviewers faulted the pad, but it's perfect for me and just like previous years. Not too bulky like some, yet not so thin as to do no good.
