Description

Definitely not tights.

The best shorts are the ones that you completely forget you're wearing. If you feel the leg bind as you lay the bike over or sometimes have to pull your shorts up mid-ride because the waistband is slipping down, you are not wearing the best shorts on the planet. One Industries, however believes that it has made the best shorts on the planet, and it has a pretty strong case.

The One Industries Sector Short has a longer cut. Nobody will mistake you for a roadie when you're wearing the Sector. Four-way stretch ripstop polyester makes up the bulk of the body. This durable fabric won't bind while you ride and breathes well to keep you dry and comfortable. The rest of the Sector's shell is made up of mesh panels that promote airflow through the short to cool you off and remove water vapor.

The included chamois pulls moisture away from your skin to prevent chafing and irritation and to allow your body to regulate its temperature naturally. The chamois also provides padding to make long hours of singletrack feel less like you just lost a butt-kicking contest. Unlike many riding shorts, the Sector's chamois liner is removable. This has several benefits. One is that you can adjust the fit and look that you want because the short and chamois are seperate. You can also wear the short without the chamois liner as just a casual short, or the chamois with another short if your Sectors are dirty.

The Sector Short has couple of other nice little touches that set it apart from a lot of other shorts. A handy included sunglass wipe can transform the world from a blurry mess to crystal clear without scratching your glasses. The compact pockets reduce bulk and irritation, and the handy media port helps you manage your headphone cord. If the fit isn't exactly spot-on-perfect from the store, the dual waist adjusters allow you to fine-tune the fit without having to wear a bulky belt.

The One Industries Sector Short comes in even sizes from 28 to 38 and is available in Chartreuse and Black.

couldn't be less comfortable

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Crap.

Chamois has this horrid piping around the legs that itch like crazy, yellow/green color is gross. TLD Ruckus or Ace shorts all day!!

Responded on

Looks like Mr. 'AAGP" doesn't have a whole lot of experience buying MTB shorts, as the 'horrid piping' he complains about is obviously the silicone strip ALL quality MTB shorts have to keep the liner from riding up your legs.
As far as the color goes, I don't have an explanation as to why he liked the color in the pics, but not in person, as they're one in the same, and as the description states-they're CHARTREUSE.

Nice AM shorts.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've bought two pairs of these shorts. One at full price, one half. For $120, I feel they leave something to be desired. Although I like how light and cool they are, I don't feel very well protected. These sorts are super thin, and are amazing on a hot summer day. But I'm not looking forward to any potential future crashes where I might slide on my side. Definitely not a DH short and I might not wear them during any enduro races. But as an all-mountain/aggressive trail short they are pretty nice. The Chartreuse is snazzy. The rear pocket is convinient like you'd expect, and although it does only have the one hip pocket. It does make up for it with the optic wipe inside. Fits true to size.

TERRIBLE!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I live in Brazil where import tax are over 100% of the value of a product that comes from abroad. So when I buy something, I really need it! For the first time I had a problem with backcountry.com. I bought this product and when it arrived, I realized there were two defects on the shorts. In one place the fabric was ripped of, and in another spot the sewing was broken and the lines where coming apart. Terrible product, terrible mistake made by the people that were suppose to inspect the products of international orders, as the returning process is virtually impo$$ible.

Quality Control OI?

Once again here I am. I did a review on their gloves now the shorts. First off the bad, the side pocket wasn't sewn completely to the inside of the pants. Then after a month the glue started coming apart on the side tabs and I had to use my trusty shoe goo to fix it. I would have sent my items back but I live in Germany and it would totally take forever to get a replacement. On the plus side they are really comfortable and I like the idea of the glasses/goggle wipe in the pocket. I thought that was really cool since I'm always looking for one. Maybe I just was that unlucky guy that got the bad batch of clothes but One Industries PLEASE check in to this since we pay $120 for these shorts. They should be bullet proof at that price.

Air & Style

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Wore these all weekend riding in Moab in 75+ degree heat. They don't have any vents, but they don't need them. These shorts are cool in temperature and cool looking to boot, and the fabric is very, very light, almost like a stretch mesh. I haven't tested their durability too hard, but I would say these are definitely XC/AM shorts, not DH shorts. The size 34 fit my 32-inch waist (I usually buy one size big) with the elastic waist tabs making up the difference, and they hit just in the middle of the knee or a bit below. The chamois seemed to be a bit on the large side. Not a big deal because I generally wear road shorts or bibs under my MTB shorts, since MTB chamois are pretty low quality across the board, but these seem pretty decent for the money. My only complaints would be there's just one small pocket (not three like the specs state), which is big enough for keys or money but not for a tube or anything substantial, and I prefer fixed waist tabs (not elastic) on shorts that don't have belt loops (these don't). Overall though, I am stoked on them especially for hot-weather riding. EDIT: I was wrong about the fabric. It's a stretch ripstop in the green sections, with a tight mesh in the black sections. And after wearing these most of the season, I haven't had any issues.

do you find the the chamois are to wide with the padding? they bunch up for me. not sure if I should go a size down.

Responded on

@mgillign: one of the reasons I don't use the chamois is it was too big. I don't know whether going a size down will help, but I imagine to get the chamois sized correctly the shorts would be too small.

Sector Short by ONE

Some of the lightest yet durable shorts on the market!

Responded on

^^ Lightest... maybe. Most durable... DEFINITELY NOT! As with one of the reviews above my Sector shorts are quite literally falling apart. After one ride and wash there were clear signs of premature wear with the stitching in the crotch area coming undone. By the next ride the stitching securing the velcro onto the side tabs was coming undone. Now, the side tabs have come unstuck and there appears to be more stitching coming undone than stitching which is secured. To make matters worse its taken One Industries three months to reply to my emails and phone calls... It doesn't really matter how well a product performs, if you pay a premium price for it and its not durable and has poor service you have to give it a BIG thumbs down.
