Shellywrote a review of Patagonia Dirt Craft 11in Bike Short - Women's on April 30, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love nearly everything about these shorts! I am 5'9", 160 lbs and have big legs. I struggle to find MTB shorts that are comfortable and don't look/feel too tight. These fit the bill - they are comfy on my legs, the chamois is amazing, and feel durable. My only complaint - they fit a bit large around the waist (they are very high waisted, even on me, a tall woman) and the system to cinch down feels outdated. It is a few little buttons on the inside of the shorts and they don't stay put very well. I wish they had put the cinch system on the outside of the short. For women with smaller frames/skinnier/leaner legs, these will probably run big. They DO flare at the bottom a little bit, but I just didn't care because they were comfortable. Used them in Moab just this last weekend and loved them. Would recommend, even with the little quirks.
