Ensuring mobility.

Dakine designed the Derail Shorts for riding in the mountains, while wearing pads, by giving them a generous cut around the knees. This lets them play nicely with hard- and soft-shell pads during both the climb and descent.

The shorts are constructed from a four-way stretch, double-knit nylon and spandex blend to provide the strength and mobility playing in the woods demands. And for those in wetter climates, a durable water repellency (DWR) treatment keeps the Derails from being saturated by wet vegetation or light rainfall. For storage, the shorts feature a zippered side pocket and two front hand pockets.

The Dakine Derail Shorts come in even sizes from 30 to 38 and in the color Charcoal.

How to Measure:
For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
Using pants that fit well, measure the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.

Wowza! Some tough shorts!!!

    I love these shorts! They are super tough, took a spill onto some rocky stuff and held up! Fit is true to size, little baggier if you like that sorta thing! Overall, some really good shorts. Would recommend!


    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    These things are a joke. The inseam is way too short. Where are they getting 15"? As others stated it's more like 13" which falls into "Daisy Dukes" territory....I have a pair of of Ridge shorts from a couple years ago and even they have a longer inseam. I was hoping these would make a good pair of winter shorts but I really find them appalling. Usually love Dakine stuff but I'll pass on these...

    nice riding shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    first off I would agree with other reviews and suggest sizing up one. The fit while riding (once you get the size right) is great, easy to move around in, no restrictions. I got the Morrocan size and the color was just very slightly brighter than the picture.

    The "charcoal black" is actually brown

      Really thought I was getting a grey color like the photo but it is nott even close. It is a very brown color over grey. DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THE PHOTO! I attached the photo of the short next to some grey 5.10 shoes and black background just so it shows how its brown. I would also like to add that the material is kind of so so, I have had an older pair of dakine shorts for 4 years and no issues, these ripped a huge hole after just a few rides, I am very disappointed in this product, but I still love Dakine.

      Hips Don't Lie

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      For once, I was able to put on a pair of baggies without feeling constricted at all. The free ride fit of these leaves a bit more room in the hips and allows complete freedom!!! They seem to run a bit small, as what others have said as well, I still stuck with my normal size that I've worn in Dakine and they fit wonderfully. The stretch factor is also AMAZING

      Go a size up

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small

      I agree with @Heckler, they fit small so go a size up. This is my 3rd pair of Dakine shorts so I am familiar with how they fit. They used to size the shorts Med: 32-34, Lrg: 34-36, etc. and now they just call it 34 or 36. I wear a 34 waist and bought the 36 and used the velcro waist adjustment just a bit and they were perfect. The material has changed this year and I really like the way it looks and feels but time will tell how it holds up over a year of riding.

      Measurements are Off

        The description states that these shorts have a 15" inseam. My pair measured 13.5". I wear a size 32 waste. I ordered a 32 and even with the Velcro adjustment let out all the way, the shorts are still a little snug.
