Why We Like the Ferrosi 12in Over Short

For those of us who appreciate the functionality a longer short has to offer on the hiking or mountain bike trail, there's the Ferrosi 12in Over Short. We layer this stretchy, breathable short over our mountain bike chamois or wear it solo on our backpacking trips for a comfy, chafe-free fit.

Super comfortable!

The waist is a tiny bit loose but overall I love these shorts!

LOVE

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I held off on buying these because they seem kinda long but wow, they are just so great for biking and also for casual wear. I bought a second pair immediately. I love the weight - not too hot. I love the fact that they don't ride up when biking. I always have my iPhone in the side pocket and it is easy to zip and unzip for photo time. The fit is great and like the extra elastic to get them to stretch enough over my belly! My bike liners fit easily underneath. They work great for hiking as well. I love them! Love the light colors too - I got gray and that dusty pink. I am wearing the Astroman blouse in the photo fyi. Another new love.

Love these for biking

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wore these on the Oregon Outback and they were great over bike shorts. Fits true to size, big pockets, and a perfect zippered side pocket so your phone doesn't get in the way when biking. Fabric is super light and breathable with just enough stretch to feel secure yet allow free movement while pedaling

Great Fit and Function.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Love the color, fit, and functionality. Phone can sit in side pocket without jiggling, shorts dry quickly and have perfect stretch.

Runs very big

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I ordered the size 6 at first and tried to wear it but they were just too big. I returned (and Backcountry took my return even though I wore once) and exchanged for a size 4. They fit, but still are roomy. I love the material and fit though. A size 2 might fit, but be a bit tight, but there is no way I should even be able to fit into a size 2 ever. Be sure to size down.

Absolutely love them except.....

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wish the leg openings at the bottom weren't so wide. They look really boxy and unflattering. Wish they were a more tapered fit. Otherwise the fabric is fantastic. Nice deep pockets and very comfortable. Sizing might be slightly on the large side, but my normal size still fits well.

Most Comfortable and flattering

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am over weight and these shorts fit perfectly...stretching perfectly with every move. Light and airy...great protection from the sun and wicks away moisture. Definately will buy more.

My new favorite bike shorts

I've worn a variety of other Ferrosi items, and I like those too; but these are truly prefect for biking. I've been between the OR size 4 and 6, and these size 4's fit perfect. They are just roomy enough to put over my bike chamois, and still be super comfortable. I LOVE the wide, soft waistband. AND...I've gotten more than one round of compliment on them...so feeling good about how they are looking.
