I've found swerve softshell shorts really good. Still not super baggy, but plenty of give and enough room that I never feel them when riding.
Hmm, I've been hoping for something less commutery, but you're right. When I had a pair of those they fit really well in the legs.
I had a dakine pair that were pretty good, more baggy mtb style, just ended up being too big for me. Jim likes the older Sombrio, but I think the newer stuff is a slimmer fit?
I just bought a pair of Patagonia ones under a time crunch (pro deal) and then read the reviews. Looks like it's not for sprinter legs either. I'll see how they fit when they get here, but maybe I should check out the Dakine ones. I don't like the look of ones that are super baggy, but I also need to be able to ride up a hill without loosing blood flow.
:( I gave it to a charity shop about a month after I posted
