Description

Skyline Short

When you're out for a solo expedition searching for far off ridgelines, make sure you take the Troy Lee Skyline Shorts along for the ride. Crafted from Coolmax polyester with just a touch of lycra, the Skyline shorts are designed to move with you while you chase down the sun for one last mile of singletrack before setting up camp for the night. They come equipped with their own removable liner short with a supportive TMF pad that cushions your sit bones for long miles on the trail, but can be swapped out easily for another liner, if you're on a multi-day excursion. Both the liner and short are built to be breathable, with perforations in the foam of the chamois to pull away sweat while you ride, and keep air moving. The shorts also are equipped with a hook-and-loop adjustment on the waist, so dialing in your fit won't cause hold ups when you're blurry eyed and searching for what pocket you stashed your instant java in while you're getting geared up for day two.

  • Ride into the clouds with TLD's top trail shorts
  • Coolmax polyester wicks away sweat and breathes
  • Lycra gives shorts 4-way stretch for mobility
  • TMF padded liner cushions sit bones and breathes
  • New micro-waffle backing is extra comfortable against skin
  • Stay dry in light showers with DWR treatment
  • Zippered pockets give you a spot to stash essentials
  • Reflective logos help with visibility if your ride takes you to road

How to Measure:
Jersey measurements on this chart represent measurements of the actual garment and not of the person wearing it. To figure out your size: take a piece that fits you well, lay it down flat, and whip out the tape measure. Compare your results with the numbers here, and choose your size accordingly.
1/2-Chest:
Measure across the broadest part of the front of your chest, at armpit level, keeping the measuring tape parallel to the ground.
Front Length:
While standing upright, measure the distance between your waist (typically at navel or top of the hip bone level) and the top of your shoulder, to the left or right of your spine.
Sleeve Length:
Standing up straight with your arms at your sides, measure from the base of your neck at the center of your spine, along the top of your shoulder and down to your wrist bone, along the outside of the arm.
Waist:
Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.

    Great except liner

    Sizing is slightly large but is a nice weight comfortable short. The rubber grip element in the waist is a great thing. Agree with other reviewer about the liner. It is waaaay smaller then the size of the outer short. Kind of a bummer not to be able to use but you won't be able to use them either. Guaranteed.

    Do these shorts have a zippered fly or velcro Thanks Ralph

    Love the shorts, sizing is a problem

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    These are my go to riding shorts. Love the zippered front pockets, good material with good fit. I own several pairs. So why 4 stars?- the sizing is off for me. I'm 5'11 175lbs and wear a size 34 in most brands but I need a size 32 in the skyline shorts (I also own size 34 in the skyline short and have to cinch the velcro all the way down on the waist to keep them in place). The 32s fit great, the problem is the chamois liner - the one that comes in size 32 is too small for me. Had to give it to my son. Weird that the short sizing and the liner sizing are so different. Over all a great short if you can get the right fit

    The features are great! color and graphics on point as usual. I do share the criticism on the plastic molded velcro tabs. For the fit these are pretty straight - I had to adjust the waist as small as possible which may have helped lead to the velcro tab issue. The legs are slimmer for me. I would have ordered the next size down to keep the waist in place. My measurements: true waist: 36" hips: 42" Thigh: 23"

    Great shorts but....

    I really liked the shorts overall. Good fabric, comfortable and seemed well thought out. The major issue I had that I couldn’t resolve was the plastic Velcro band around the waist that digs into my side. I tried everything and had to return them due to this issue. It would also be nice if they incorporated a belt loop into the shorts so you could utilize a belt. Won’t buy any shorts with Velcro waist tension straps again.

    Love these new shorts!

    Comes with the Chamois, this is an awesome short that I used all last season and picked up a new pair for this year. The integrated a new locking system for the chamois to be easily removed for washing or if you want to just wear the shorts.

    Great trail Short!

    Awesome shorts for trail riding. My favorite features are 2 zip pockets to store the essentials, and the Velcro waist adjustment.

    Light Weight & Great

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    These shorts rock. I use them in the hotter months when I know I'm going to be doing a fair amount of climbing. Good option for those xc guys who aren't down with the spandex. These replaced my Patagonia Dirt Crafters. Still prefer the liner from the dirt crafters though. True to size. I'm 5'5 and 155 I went with the medium.

    Great Shorts

    Love the stretch on these shorts. The padding and fit on these are super comfortable during a rough ride. The pockets are great and the adjustable fit on the waistband is amazing. These will be great for a post-Thanksgiving ride.

    Awesome shorts!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    These are by far my new favorite shorts to bike in. They have simple styling, yet still have important features like 2 zip pockets, and an adjustable waistband that actually works! The included liner is breathable and keeps you comfortable on long days spent on the saddle.

    True to size

    Loved my first two pairs and bought two more (one of which was skyline air). Unfortunately latest two pairs both suffered from fly-area velcro issues where velcro did not hold at all. Pretty disappointed to discover such a basic issue with $90/$100 shorts. TLD was very responsive and mentioned hang dry only... which seems kind of odd for 21st century mountain biking apparel. Will need to treat my other two beloved pairs more delicately during laundering.

    Hello George! If you have any questions regarding different options in riding shorts, I'm happy to help. I've personally had good luck transitioning from TLD to Fox Racing specifically due to the waist closures. If you'd like I'm happy to reach out to my warranty department for you to see if I can offer any help in that direction if you're still not satisfied with the shorts. You can email me at ZFoley@Backcountry.com!

    Thanks for your effort in reporting this issue. It helped me a lot.

    2nd pair!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    The four way stretch on these shorts is so comfy and doesn't hinder you at all when pedaling. The chamois nice with enough padding without being too bulky. I love these shorts so much that I just bought my second pair. The pockets are easy to get into when on the bike and they are easy to maintain, washing drying etc. If you are looking for a great pair of baggy riding shorts you can't go wrong with these.

    Very nice pair of shorts. The only thing I don't like about the shorts is that the manufacturer used a hard plastic along the waist line for adjustments. These plastic fasteners dig into my side, and I'm thinking of removing them. I was going to buy another pair but a little hesitant now..
