All-mountain shorts from the all-mountain bike makers.

Yeti isn’t necessarily the first thing you think of when you think bike shorts. That’s about to change, though, with the Yeti Freeland Shorts. Yeti made the Freelands for the type of riding its employees do, in the type of terrain in which they do it. To that end, the Freeland is cut to accommodate knee pads, is stretchy but durable, and is finished with a DWR coating to keep the rain off, since it rains just about every afternoon in Colorado when you’re above 8,000 feet or so.

  • Adjustable waist
  • Compatible with Yeti’s Liner, sold separately
  • Multiple stash pockets
  • Zippered vents
  • DWR treatment

Sweet shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I usually wear a 34 in jeans and definitely prefer the fit of the XL/36. They have YKK zips, good snaps, clean lines, no velcro BS, no silly lower back pocket, and don't come with a shoddy liner that you're going to replace anyway. I really like the glide patches and the waist adjustments. I could do without the thigh vents since they don't do much but add weight and cost. A couple more color choices would be appreciated, too.

Unanswered Question

Some shorts in the pics include belt loops while others don't. Do these shorts come with belt loops or not?

Great Features but Slim Fit

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

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.

Awesome, durable shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Backcountry reviews are really my bible when it comes to making any kind of biking/hiking/camping purchase. The honest reviews from people just like me separates this site from others! So with that, I thought it was about time to provide a review of my own!

I bought these shorts looking for a durable all-mountain kind of short that wouldn't rip the first time I went down on the trails, which has happened before with a pair of shorts that I own. After reading reviews on the Yeti Freeland shorts, I decided to go with these over the Teller shorts mainly for their durability.

First day out, took a small but noticeable tumble and thought, "Oh great! There goes my new shorts!" To my surprise, not a mark or tear was found on them. The material of these shorts is so durable and really appears to be rip-proof! It does have more of a soft-shell feel compared to the dri-fit feel of other shorts I own. I love the functionality of the zippers for the extra ventilation on long rides as well!

I would size up though. I normally wear a size 32 (medium) in mountain biking shorts, but decided to go with the large in these after reading some reviews. The cinch straps on the side make the shorts fit perfectly.

Here's a picture of my dog and I on the trails from the other day!

Awesome, durable shorts!

Great versatile short

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

I find myself reaching for these shorts more than any others in my closet. They're so comfortable, starting with the soft-shell like fabric that can take a beating, shed off a bit of water, but are still breathable enough for summer rides in Colorado.
The vents on these things are well designed - zippers on the front of the leg open up a cavity that scoops in air and actually work. The silk type material on the leg fronts make for a comfy ride with no leg chafing, though the material can start pilling on knee pad velcro. The silicone waistband stays put and the nice pull tabs keep the shorts in place where you put them. With all these thoughful (and useful) features, and a versatile fit that is great for XC to AM rides, it doesn't get much better.
Props to Yeti for putting out some great functional clothing!

Biking!

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

I've been really happy with these. They have a soft, stretchy material that is super comfy for pedaling a bicycle. Still durable, I've taken a few falls with no rips, tears, or anything. The front vents open up completely (no mesh) to your leg. I though it was kind of funny at first, but it does make for some great venting when you need it.
Join the yeti tribe!

Great riding short!

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

Very comfortable, just the right number of pockets, while still venting well! Love having the belt loops for an Arcade belt as well.

Wearing them right now.

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

This is my second pair. I love em. I really like that they don't come with a liner. That way I don't pay for a liner that I'm not going to use. If you wear a liner you can buy the one you like and not be locked into the one that comes with the shorts. The pocket set up works perfect for me. They are indestructible and comfortable. I have looked at a lot of shorts but these are obviously made to ride in by folks that ride. Even though they are totally functional, they also look good. If you need brand status, you can hold your head high wearing Yeti. The name says that you are cutting edge cool, if that sort of thing means anything to you. Most of the other shorts on the market are mostly fashion and very little if any functionality. I could go on and on but just buy em you will be pleased.

Great shorts but run small

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great shorts. Built to last, attention to detail throughout, designed with a rider in mind. Only problem is they run small. I got the Medium (32) and they are very tight on the waist. I wear a 32 in everything and usually wear a belt to keep things snug. I can hardly get the snap buttons in the front snapped on these 32's. Other than that, highly recommend. I've read on other sites and reviews that other people are having the same sizing issue...
