Great Shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My wife was very surprised how nice these shorts are, the material feels fantastic, like it's not even there but they are warm when needed. Easy to put tights under if it's snowy. Adjustable waist is perfect since she's battling an illness that makes her weight fluctuate at times. The only thing she wishes is that they were just a bit longer when worn without knee pads but with, they are perfect. 5'6" 125 lb size 28

Not for me

    These shorts were not what made for me. The waist was too tight and the legs were way too baggy and way too long (and I am tall). They may work for someone else but not made for me.

    Not great for petites

    • Size Bought: 26"

    These shorts are too long and too baggy for someone 5'1", even with thicker thighs. Too bad:( loved the garnet color.

    Great for thick thighs!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 30

    I can never find jeans or pants that fit because I have large thighs. I usually wear a 6 or 8 "curvy" in jeans because my waist and legs are not proportionate. I ordered a 30 and the thighs fit and I can tighten up the waist. I'm 5'6" and these hit just at my mid knee.

    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.

    Super versatile

      These shorts are great for biking, running errands, dinner with friends. They're comfortable, light weight and wash well over and over.

      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.
