Reasonable enough quality for the money but if I was to do it again I'd pay the extra for the better shorts, next on up in the range. Main issue would be the lack of pockets but they're also a bit low waisted....(for bending forwards on a bike) .
Pls get your sizing right. Size doesn't correspond to the table nor to the label on the item itself. It fits much tighter than indicated, can't wear. Advice to online buyers to get 1-2 sizes up
Thank you for your comments.
Could you DM me with the size you purchased as well as your waist size?

Purchased an L sized short a couple months back. The elastic band is very tight around the hips. Squeezes skin pretty hard, causes boils and affects blood circulation. Had to stretch it by putting the short around a round stool. Chamoi design isn't that great. Not comfy on trails.
Have lost Energy Gels because of the pocket design.
Please make a better short with better chamois and better pockets with zippers/Velcro. A combo of both elastic band + belt would be great around the hip.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. Your feedback for the pocket positioning is well received and we will try to change the positioning next year. However, with respect to the elastic, I suggest you should try going for the XL size. It will be easier on the waist and comfortable as well. The padding is a basic foam padding for short rides, for added comfort, I suggest you buy the MTB under short 900 with gel inserts for long trail rides.
I remain available for more questions.
Good value at under a tenner. Comfortable to wear, decent padding. Material does not chafe while riding. Has an inner Lycra layer which is comfortable. Could do with another pocket. Quite breathable but the padding and Lycra does cause a bit of sweating
The design is excellent , so that it can be used for Dual purpose. Improvement can be made by having either Zip or Velcro in pocket for closure, as during cycling there are chances to loose valuable from pocket.

These shorts are bliss, with seat cover and these shorts you can ride comfortably for many Kms.
At this price you can't complain.
Its a nice mtb short but luck of storage. Just one side pocket so there’s no room for extra stuff when your biking.
The padding in the shorts is not good enough to make the ride comfortable.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your review. The padding on the shorts is for small rides which are less than 1 to 2hrs. For more comfort and better padding, I suggest you try a gel saddle (https://www.decathlon.in/p/8315962_trekking-900-gel-saddle.html#/3-254-_) or a bib short (https://www.decathlon.in/p/8354169_900-cycling-bib-shorts-black-white.html#/12-200-m)
