My feelings with the Natoma shorts

I have been testing this Natoma shorts along the past week, riding my fixie in my city, and walking. The first feeling you have when you have the pants in your hands is: mmmm... seems too thick for summer...32 ºC outside... but... no! The pants are really cool!

The second feeling is: wow... it's 4-way stretch, you feel it when you ride... I can say: the more confortable shorts I've ever had, as similar to cycling tights but with urban aesthetics, perfect!
