Awesome lightweight shorts

I've put it through the wringer

These are one of the most comfortable MTB shorts I've owned. They are lightweight, cool, and super comfortable material. I wear padded liner shorts under, so I love the adjustable built in waistband belt to secure the fit. . Highly recommend.

Exactly What I Needed for Summer

I've put it through the wringer

I’ve worn these for three weeks now, having bought two pairs initially and later adding a third. They run on the tighter side of being true-to-size in my opinion. I’m 180 and 5’ 11” and a M fits pretty much like a glove, the thighs being the absolute smallest diameter I would want them. A L might be baggy, and were I ten pounds heavier I would certainly upsize. The quality is there. The fabric has really grown on me these past few weeks. The pockets easily fit a larger cell phone and I’ve had no issues whatsoever with constrictions or binding. The vents are so helpful, and they were the feature that helped coax me into buying the first two pair. The quality of construction and the feel of the fabric and the perfect fit all combined to convince me to get a third pair for better laundry rotation in hot weather. Overall a solid product for my first experience with Backcountry brand. I’ll be giving their other products a closer look from now on as my needs warrant. It does seem that Backcountry listens to user feedback when designing their gear - at least as far as these shorts are concerned.

Great Shorts

I've used it several times

I've tried a few different mtb shorts and these ones are up there with the best. The fit is pretty dialed. I'm 5'10" and the medium fits me well, and I use the belt to close the gap. Materials are nice and pretty breathable. Planning on purchasing more colors.
