I picked up a very nice pair of cycling shorts with zippered pockets on both sides (though that wasn't the primary reason for getting them) several months back. Phone fits just fine in them. I have a...

Common logic would certainly lead you to believe the older, thicker stuff is more robust, and it's probably true that early carbon fiber was overbuilt out of an abundance of caution. However, the...
