Comfy, Durable, Stylish, Storage.
Tried these shorts after owning a few pairs of Fox, Specialized, and other brands. I like them so much, I ended up getting 4 pair. The Ether Camo pattern shorts seem to be a little thicker than the Plaid or the solid color shorts, so I use them when it's a little cooler or in the rain. The shorts shed water all day. Easy to clean and the removable liners are the most comfortable and protective I've used. The velcro side-adjuster tabs are nice and do not hinder movement, and the elastic waistband in the back allows for ease of movement. The pockets are great, and the right side cargo pocket is perfect for a folded map for ease of access. I'm 5'8", and the 12" inseam is perfectly comfortable with knee pads. These shorts don't get caught on my knees like the Fox shorts. They've held up perfectly for over 300 miles of riding and look brand new out of the wash. I highly recommend these shorts, and they are worth the price.
