Versatility matters.

A pair of mountain bike shorts isn't really all that great if you can't use them for other things. This may seem like a strange thing to say, but if you're going to drop $80 on a pair of shorts, you should be able to wear them off the bike without feeling like you just stepped off the trail. Fox Racing Ranger Cargo Shorts are a perfect example of this theory in action. The included moisture-wicking, 2-way stretch fabric and removable chamois liner make the Ranger a serious high-performance bike short. More than that, though, it just looks good. Wear this one out to the bar after your ride and you'll look a whole lot better than the V-neck-and-gold-chain-crowd ever could.

Don't let the subtle styling fool you–the Ranger is well-equipped. Quick-dry polyester construction ensures cool, dry comfort, even on all-day epics, and 2-way stretch eliminates binding for an unlimited range of motion. The removable liner makes the Ranger as comfortable as your favorite road shorts,and you can use it with your other shorts or with softshell baggy pants for winter riding. In a way, that makes the Ranger one of the most versatile shorts on the market. As for storage space, the Ranger Cargo has gobs. The standard front and back pockets get some back-up from two cargo pockets–one a zippered security pocket with Fox's Audio Interface Technology. The Fox Racing Ranger Short comes in Dark Khaki, Charcoal, Blue, and Black and is available in even sizes 30 through 44.

Who still engineers shorts with Velcro?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The shorts look great on pictures but came to find out that the cargo pockets still use Velcro to secure its lids. No way to guarantee that pocket contents will not exit while descending something Gnarly. I know Fox makes better riding bottoms, looking at other styles.

super comfy shorts

  • Gender: Male

Great shorts after cutting the chamois out. Super flexible and light. I have actually surfed in these and watered the lawn too.

Fox Racing Ranger Cargo

I actually like Fox Ranger Cargo a lot I own them in Black, Grey and now in Blue, they match perfect with my Fox Racing Bike Jersey and my Fox Digit Gloves. The photo was taken on Virginia key North Point Trails on Miami, Florida on Our Club's kids MTB day in January 2014, I was the lead in the younger kids race...

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

The shorts are a little tight in the waist area, but you don't really notice it when you're riding. The material seems durable and the chamois makes riding really comfortable. No complaints so far.

Great Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the third Ranger short I got, first one was a 2011, then a 2012 model and finally the 2013 here. They have just been getting better and better. Construction is more solid, fit remains the same (I find Fox products to be a bit on the short side but that is just me maybe) and blue color rocks. The chamois is pretty standard, I have nothing but Fox shorts to compare it to and it is pretty nice, definitely a great buy, specially at the sale price.

Like but not durable

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

Ripped on day one! Really like the fit, feel and look of them but they snagged on twig cornering on my first ride and it tore a big hole in the leg. It feels like the material of the shorts is kind of grabby and is definitely weak, so when a little twig sticks out on the trail, the short tends to hook it easily and tear quickly. Pretty flimsy construction if you ask me.

Good shorts!

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

Bought these a week or so ago and have done 2 rides with them already. I am a larger guy so finding a well fitting anything is always hard! These shorts (size 42) fit me perfectly!! well made, comfortable and durable. I will be buying a few more pairs.

Comfortable 12" bike shorts.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like the 12" shorts better than 10". The liner is high quality and very comfortable. The shorts can also be worn for hiking without the padded liner.
