Great for Mountain Biking!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 26

I purchased these shorts for mountain biking to wear over my my padded shorts. I love them! The stretch fabric makes these shorts very comfortable and I love the feminine color options. They have the adjustable waist band feature, but the size 26 that I purchased fits great so I didn't need to do any adjusting.

An odd length

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I'm a life long Dakine fan, but these shorts were just an odd length. The material also felt a little too thick up in the waist area. They have a nice feature of changable waste band size, which is a nice feature for some of us women who tend to loose and gain weight.

Bought these for the wifey because she needed a little more leg coverage. She is a size 27, 5'4" 122lbs and we bought her the size 28, but they were big so I will be exchanging them for the 26. The material is awesome! she can't wait to ride in them.
