Chris Huntleywrote a review of Yeti Cycles Freeland Shorts on April 15, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
The material these are made out of feels great: fairly rugged but decently breathable with a little stretch. The features are well thought out with easily accessible zippered cargo pocket and zippered vents that let plenty of air through. The also have mesh pockets that help to vent, but the mesh is burlier than in my fox shorts. The stretch panel on the back is nice and the external waist adjustment is handy for getting the initial fit. I don't find myself constantly wanting to adjust my other shorts, so i don't know that the external vs. internal adjustment really matter though.
The fit can be pretty annoying though. Wearing them while generally heading down feels great. Wearing them on a trail with lots of pedaling causes them to shift uncomfortably. If you have muscular legs (not be be confused with a lack of body fat that shows off muscle) the legs with ride up and cause the waist to move. and fitting bulky DH pads underneath is tougher than with other shorts.
These probably fit great if you're on the skinnier side. if you have bigger legs, ordering the right size waist will make the rest of the shorts tighter than you'd like. Ultimately, i like the fit son my fox shorts more.
