Your favorite shorts are now waterproof.
Fall is, maybe not even arguably, the best time of year to ride a bike. The dirt is extra tacky, the climbs welcome you with a cool breeze, and the flowy single track through aspens offers you a natural fireworks display of red and orange leaves. But- admittedly, the weather can be a bit unpredictable, which is why Fox offers us a beefed up version of their classic Ranger, your new favorite trail shorts: the Fox Racing Ranger WR short. You might have already guessed that the WR stands for Water Resistant, which they indeed are, after a generous DWR (durable water resistant) coating to the classic 2-way stretching polyester of the original Ranger short.
The Ranger has shown us its robust durability for years, which landed it as many rider's favorite pair of trail shorts, and the Ranger WR starts with the same build as the Ranger. Featuring 2-way stretch polyester, hand pockets, adjustable waist tabs, and a not-too-short or too-long 10-inch inseam, they fit comfortably, adjust to your own fine-tuned preferences. Now you can add a water resistant pair to your closet and happily face mother nature when she's sending the storm clouds your way.

- Q & A
Nice shorts, but size up!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 34"
I typically wear size 32-33 waist pants, but I got the size 34 short to be safe. Sad to say that these are still a bit tight! I will be ordering another pair in size 36, because I like them. The liner fits nicely and chamois is comfortable.
