All-mountain shorts from the all-mountain bike makers.

Yeti isn’t necessarily the first thing you think of when you think bike shorts. That’s about to change, though, with the Yeti Freeland Shorts. Yeti made the Freelands for the type of riding its employees do, in the type of terrain in which they do it. To that end, the Freeland is cut to accommodate knee pads, is stretchy but durable, and is finished with a DWR coating to keep the rain off, since it rains just about every afternoon in Colorado when you’re above 8,000 feet or so.

  • Adjustable waist
  • Compatible with Yeti’s Liner, sold separately
  • Multiple stash pockets
  • Zippered vents
  • DWR treatment

great shorts lots of storage

    Great shorts, nice and light lots of pockets great fit and feel! Cant go wrong with these shorts, yeti does tend to run small and I am in between sizes, so I went to the larger size, I am glad I went for the larger size because I can cinch these down with the cool draw string system.

    Favorite Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked up a pair of these last summer and they quickly became my favorite shorts. I previously used Fox's Ranger shorts & Yeti's Tellers and these are a step up in all day comfort and storage options/venting. As for fit, I think they run a little big. I'm a large in my other shorts, including other Yeti's, but I could wear a medium in these. Otherwise, I plan to keep purchasing more for all my future adventures.

    Awesome short

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Just great! Versatile, not only for biking.
    Found just one issue with them - front pockets are not pockets they are vents, almost lost thing I tried to put in it.
    It would be nice to have some net inside to prevent that.

    Great! Could have a better vent.

      I dropped my phone several time from habit through the front vent zipper thinking its a pocket. Other than that its comfortable for biking and climbing. Really love the blue color!

      Well made, fits small

        Pricey but well made, great material choices and I expect to get a lot of miles out of them. I have tried these and the Yeti Enduro short and Yeti must be throwback sizing because I haven't encountered an xxl pair of shorts this small since 2006.

        After grabbing a yeti, had to pick up some shorts as well. Love these things. Really like the material and length. A lot of protection for how light they feel



        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: Large

        This pants are seriously great. Like other reviewers said, moving in these are a breeze. They move with your body, and with the little pull tabs on the side, they are as snug as you want them to be. Also, I love the zips on the legs that act as vents! While there isn't actually mesh on the inside, its nice to vent out during a huge uphill push. There is only one thing alluding the 5 star rating though: and its that these run small. I am usually a large in everything; I have about a 35in waist, which means I should be at the small end of the large size. However, these are snug, with those tabs pulled all the way out. If you are a 36 or above in the waist, definitely go the XL, cause they may be too small for you.

        Are they worth $100?

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: S

        when you look at regular shorts vs mountain bike shorts you always wonder what makes them worth it. As I look at the Yeti shorts vs most mtb shorts, I wonder what makes them worth $100.
        I picked up a pair to try and find out what makes them so great. First off these shorts fit very nicely and thats something that i rarely find with shorts. Secondly, you can move incredibly well!! The built in belt is not need for me since the fit is so snug but it doesn't restrict motion whatsoever. the material is durable, but not bullet proof (already tore a hole in one cargo pocket from a tree branch encounter)
        Last thing i'll comment on is the vents. The vents are direct openings that are horizontal across the thighs... no nets... just an open hole. which I thought was quite strange. But after riding on a hot a day and opening those vents up, it all made sense.
        Long of the short... These shorts are worth $100. I would buy a pair for every day of the week if I could afford it.
        If you have any questions about these shorts or are on the fence about buying them, email or call me and we can chat about it.

        Absolutely No Abrasion Resistance

        • Size Bought: large

        These shorts look great, have zippered pockets and are breathable. However, I only owned these four days before they became unusable after one incident. I got about 2 hours of riding time before crashing and the right side cargo pocket completely detached along the seams. The shorts were well on there way to being torn in half. The material is not beefy, like some of the other riding shorts I have owned.

        Matching my Yeti SB6

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size

        I love my Yeti SB6 so much I wanted to match with these super comfortable and stylish shorts. The shorts are durable, water resistant, and have plenty of pockets. I highly recommend these shorts for any one into mountain biking.

        Matching my Yeti SB6

        Yup these are nice

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Medium

        I love these shorts, they are light and very comfortable. I was slightly disappointed that they were not padded when I purchased them but they were still a great buy. The short runs long like most biking shorts do but the lining is very smooth which makes for a comfortable ride. Also the vents on the front of the short is in a great place to provide enough ventilation.

        Decent short, bad vents

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: XL

        The good - construction quality, material, and overall product.
        The bad - zippered vents are kinda useless , they provide no ventilation during pedaling action and there is no mesh backing to the vent holes.
        The ugly - still trying to find a well thought out and designed short!!!! grrrr (Dakine Synclines from 2010 seem to be the best I have used/found)

        These are the best~!

        • Size Bought: Large

        This is my second year riding in these. They are amazing! Super comfortable, and the leg zips come in handy when it's hot out. My shorts haven't shown any signs of wear even though I've put them through the wringer and crashed in them. A+ would buy again.

        Great shorts!

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

        I was tired of dealing with my overly simple, cheaply made Dakine shorts, so I decided to upgrade. I love these shorts, they have nice built in cinch straps and roomy pockets. I just discovered the vents as well, pretty rad. The fit is great. I wear a 34 waist and I bought the large, they are perfect, no belt required just a little pull on the built in straps and I am good to go.

        One of my favorites

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: Runs small
        • Size Bought: XXL

        I prefer loose and long shorts these fit the bill. Lightweight, breathable, with 2 open front pockets, 2 zipper side pockets, and adjustable waist. I think Yeti shorts run on the small side; These XXLs fit similar to a L Pearl Izumi Launch and a L Pearl Izumi Impact shorts that I also own and love. I'm 5'10", 220 lbs, ~38" waist, ~44 hip.

        Nice shorts

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: Large

        Nice bike shorts. I'm 5'10" 160 lbs, 33 waist and 30 inseam- went with large size. Good fit. The turquoise color isn't as bright or obnoxious as you might think. Happy with purchase so far.


          These shorts provided the exact fit I was looking for. The length feels just right, and they are overall extremely comfortable. I'm really glad I picked up a pair of these, and may even buy a few more to expand my bike wardrobe.

          Only MTB Shorts You Need

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

          I have riden several times with these, and they are the best MTB shorts I have owned. I wear the Yeti Como Liner with these, and they are a great pair for any avid MTB. Comfortable, yet can handle the usage. Zippers are very durable. There are plenty of pockets for storage. Strongly encourage these for your next pair of shorts.


          • Fit: True to size

          I've only ridden a couple of times with these, but so far, they are great. The material doesn't seem stretchy, but there is no restriction of movement at all. This includes making climbs or trying to bomb a long downhill. The pants hang over the knees and don't interfere with knee pads at all. The side zip pockets are good sized, and the additional hand pockets are deep enough that they are actually useful. The shorts breathe well and are pretty cool, even at temps in he 70s.

          I was worried about the sizing since some reviews said that the shorts run small. If anything, the waist is larger than expected. If you have doubts, get a soft tape measure and actually measure your waist. You might be surprised by what clothing manufactures are "telling" what your waist size is.

          Tried on a couple shorts these are king

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          These shorts are fantastic! They contour to your riding form perfectly and have all the bells and whistles you would want without any excess.
