I received a pair of these about a month ago. I had not worn a pair of marena’s before, although I had been wanting to try a pair out, and I must say I am impressed. These are the bike shorts but I used them for running too. The fabric is not too thick but still thick enough. Plus they just look high quality. Some compression I’ve warn bunch of up or get loose the longer I wear them, but I didn’t have that with those. I definitely recommend them.
