    I wear Fox Ranger as well as Fox Altitude, and they are awesome shorts. Removable liner, good pockets, and they fit me at 6'2 and 235.

    I've got a couple from Performance Bike -- their brand -- that fit well if you order a size larger than you might wear in U.S.-made gym shorts.

    +1 on Fox Sergeant. Worn 2-3 times a week for a year with no issues. Very comfortable.

    +1 for aerotech designs shorts if you're a clydesdale (40" + waist). BUT, they definitely run SMALL. Get one size up from your usual size. Don't believe the generous measurements they give in their descriptions. I've had to exchange two pair. Learned my lesson.

    I have a 42" waist and wear North Face XXL mountain bike shorts. I like them a lot. Before these I used to wear REI's brand, Novara in XXL. The REI brand is a bit more affordable.

    Fox Sergeants or Ranger. They do run a little small sizing wise, but I really like the Fox stuff...

    check out the north face shorts. There are a couple different kinds but DAMN they fit huge. I'm a 36ish waist and the xl falls off me. The large needs a belt or it would fall off me. The medium almost fits, kinda crazy.

    comfiest baggy I've ever worn, and I've worn most of the stuff in this thread.

    I alternate between the Aerotech shorts (which I love) and a pair of work out shorts over a Love2Pedal falconi bib. The Aerotech shorts do run a bit small and I think they are a little too tight on the thighs, but the adjusters at the waist are awesome.

    The bibs are nice but I find that if I'm doing a trail that requires lots of dismounting and starting and stopping, that penis management becomes an issue inside the bibs. Weiner always seems to be in the wrong position once seated with the bibs on. I believe this is 'cause the falconi bib pad rises higher in the front......?

    I"m looking at buying some Fox Altitude Shorts but am unsure on the sizing. I wear 36" Levi 569 jeans and they are really loose. I can put on my old 34" 569's but they fit snugly (I like the looser feel) Would I want to buy 36" Fox shorts? Any recommendation on what size pants you have vs Fox shorts? How have they lasted? I've seen mixed reviews on there durability but I like how they are cut and feel that I would be comfortable in them. Anyone feel free to weigh in.

    I find some fox shorts fit big (maybe in case of armor?) while some don't. In particular my fox rangers and Sargents fit a bit big, while the fox high voltage shorts fit perfect. I wear size 38 pants, and bought size 38 shorts. The Sargent has a belt loop which I plan on using. The velcro elastic band helps too. I'm a bit dissapointed in the rangers as I find I am always checking to make sure I'm not dealing crack. I think this is because the rangers chamois is attached to the outer shorts and can pull the outer shorts down a bit, especially because the outer doesn't fit snug. I still wear them, but whenever I come to a stop I make sure I hike them up. The sargents and high voltage shorts are great. Their removable chamois has been good so far.

    So, in my opinion, stay away from rangers because of the attached chamois, maybe do a size smaller in the Sargents (which are great shorts) or your regular size if you are looking for a loose fit, and high voltage are great with my regular size. If you are in Canada checkout aurora action sports. Free shipping over $150 I think.

    Can't comment on durability as I've had them for about a month. Worn each pair 4-5 times. So far so good.

    And sorry I don't have any experience with the fox altitude shorts.

    Cool I found some Fox Altitude shorts for 50% off with free shipping and a good return policy. I had looked at Aerotech as well but liked the look of how the Fox were cut better. I just am worried about fit and durability. Thanks for all the help posted in this thread.

    EDIT: Ordered Fox Sergeant shorts in 34 tonight hope they fit! Along with some Fox Digit Gloves.

    I live in the south and it can get pretty hot. So, which shorts are more breathable? Sergeant or altitude?
