Dakine designed the Tonic Women's Shorts for riding in the mountains by incorporating a 13in inseam that places the cuff at your knees. This provides trail and all-mountain coverage, and the hem is generous enough to play nicely with soft-shell pads during both the climb and descent.

The Tonic Shorts are constructed from a four-way stretch polyester and spandex blend to provide the strength and mobility that playing in the woods demands. For storage, the shorts feature a zippered side pocket and two front hand pockets.

Dakine's Tonic Women's Shorts come in even sizes from 24 to 32 and in the colors Black and Red.

  • Polyester and spandex
  • Two hand pockets
  • One zippered side pocket
  • Snap waist closure
  • Belt loops

Dakine Tonic Shorts - Women's

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 26

These shorts are true to size and super comfortable. Can't beat the price from backcountry. I recommend the Siren as well as the Tonic, which I am also very happy with.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

the wife loves these!!! she wanted a little more protection than her daisy dukes while riding so she decided on these. She is loving them!! zippered pocket and really breathable!!! she is a size 27 but bought the 26 in these. they fit perfect for her.

love the camo

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 30

I first bought the shirt in this camo pattern. I loved it so much, I wanted to buy the camo shorts. I was nervous about sizing. I bought the 30 but expected it to be too tight at waist (my waist is 35" and my hips are 39"). Now I notice the sizing chart in the reviews and figure I could've gone by that and fit into the 28. The waist is adjustable and I'm happy with the casual/baggy fit. Eventually my husband bought me the matching camel back, too. 13" inseam is a very long short, covers my knees. I wear it mountain biking and have worn it casually as well. I like the secure, zipped pocket. A lightweight short perfect for summer.

would have kept if they included chamois

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

of the 3 pair I ordered, I'm ultimately keeping the Fox Lynx simply because they include a chamois which i need. I liked the long length on these, the camo, the fit is nice not sloppy baggy. oh well... maybe if they go on sale i'll be back.

Way too noisy

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 28

I liked the fit and look of these shorts, and material seems quick-drying and durable. But, it's so loud. I tried them on but couldn't stand the noise even just walking around the house.

Dank Lines all aorund

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 26

I gifted these to a friend and she has been loving them, she felt the length was questionable at first, but after the first few rides it was decided that they were dead on.

A little big, but I like them enough

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

A little on the larger side as far as bagginess goes, but I liked them enough to keep them. They are lightweight and stretchy and I do like the camo design. Great for hot days on the bike. Don't feel as tough as some other bike shorts, but because of that they seem cooler (temp). Should have returned them for a smaller size in retrospect.

Great shorts!

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

These are so comfortable and light weight. I've worn them on long rides, paddle boarding, and hiking. Love them!

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

I usually ride 3-4 days a week and these shorts have held up well after 1 season of use. They're lightweight, stretchy and perfect for that minimal outer layer. True to size but the internal velcro waist adjustments are a nice addition. Overall, very pleased!
