Er... anyway. Back to the topic at hand, I have a few comments here:
- I've owned two pairs of Zoic Ethers, on both, ALL of the zippers ended up failing. They use very thin and cheap zippers. Also, I don't like the "dad's cargo shorts" look, but that's just me.
- Too many baggy shorts are super-long surf-short length enduro-bro style, have loud patterns/logos or have somewhat useless pockets all over them. Also, the prices charged are larcenous. I recommend going to REI and getting a nice pair of simple stretch-fabric hiking shorts and wearing a pair of bibs under them.
- If you really want cycling specific overshorts, I like the Chrome Natoma, which are ridiculously expensive but just about perfect.
