    Am I huge?

    I have been looking for some baggy ridding shorts just to mess around on my local school campus and to ride in. I bought some wally world camo shorts and they work ok. What do you guys wear? I am a 40 waist and 6'2 tall and just want something about to the knees.
    thanks for your help!

    I've got the nashbar epic's. i'm 6'7" and a 38-40. They work well for me. a tad above the knee. but you're 5" shorter than me, so should be great.

    Pearl izumis have fit me well. I tried hoss, azonic (fit pretty well), and something else...
    Sometimes I jsut sport some cargo shorts over lycra. Then at least you don't have to wear that maxi pad all day, just go commando.

    I wear Canari Velo Gel shorts size XL (says to size 38, I am a 40-42 and they fit just fine and are comfortable) and a pair of cheap Target cargo shorts over them. Very comfortable setup.

    For baggies, at this time, I like the Oakley 2.6 shorts.

    I found that BDU (military) shorts are really comfy and they also tend to run in every size known to man. If you buy the more expensive shorts they come with rip-stop fabric if you tank it a lot riding.

    Thanks for your help guys! Im just wearing some old cargos but about to wear them out and hate to keep buying shorts that just wont hold up ya know. I hate that fox doesn't offer shorts to fit so I might try the oakleys.
    Thanks
