Dirt Craft Bike Short

Patagonia knew you were looking for a pair of shorts you could wear before, during, and after trail riding without having to bring a change of clothes, so they went and created the Men's Dirt Craft Bike Shorts.

Built with a two-layer design, the shell is cut slimmer than your standard mountain baggies, made with a stretchy blend and finished with a water-repellent DWR coating for comfort and protection. The adjustable hook-and-loop waistband, articulated knees, and versatile 11.5in inseam all serve to better adapt to off-the-bike activities. When you're on the bike, the outer layer pairs with a stretchy, moisture-wicking inner liner, complete with a cushy three-layer chamois and mesh paneling to keep you comfortable during long days on the trails.

  • Versatile two-layer short for days on the trail
  • Water-resistant, quick-drying shell holds up to abuse
  • Breathable, stretchy liner keeps you moving in comfort
  • Built-in chamois pad absorbs harsh chatter on the trail
  • Adjustable waistband customizes the fit
  • Multiple pockets bring along gloves, tools, and snacks

Makes all the difference!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great shorts. Liner is a bit bulky feeling to walk around in, but works wonders on the trail for add a little cush to your tush. Material is sturdy and lightweight, and does not bind or ride up.

Great except for liner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I agree with the earlier review that the liner leaves something to be desired. The shorts themselves are comfortable and high quality, but I just use other liners with them after having them rub me the wrong way on a couple of rides. Pretty high price for just the shorts.

Great shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am 5 11 and 190 lbs with tree trunk legs. I got a size 34. They are a bit snug in the thighs but the waist is spot on. I love the stretchy fabric and the pockets are great. When im riding I dont notice them rubbing or making strange noises. I recommend these shorts for any activity, not just biking!

Cool!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Stretchy, water resistant enough, and comfortable overall, these mountain bike shorts are a good all-around pair. Recommended.

Phenomenal Short

    These are my husband's go to mountain biking shorts. They move super well, and breathe. And they look great too!

    Nice short, liner not so much

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I really like the short. If you live in a hot climate, forget about using the liner because it will leave you chafed. I see that patagonia came out with another short that doesn't come with a liner but now they sell just a liner. My guess is that it is probably a better quality.

    Great Comfort Minimalist Short combo

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    5'9" / 195 and the 34" fit well and true to size. The inner line / chamois pad and very comfortable and mesh panels breathe well and the short itself is very light weight. When riding it doesn't get caught up on knee and overall you barely notice it is there. My other favorite short was a Fox Attack (also light weight), but now think these will be my go to's.

    Great Mt Biking Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These are very comfortable. I really like the fit as well.

    Solid bike shorts!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I bought these as a gift and have received great feedback! My friend said that they fit super well, were not too bulky, and looked great! He is an avid mountain biker, rides 3-5 times a week and is really excited to have these shorts .

    Favorite bike shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 33

    Used to just ride in roadbike bibs and board shorts. These are worth the money. Just feels better on the bike (XC, enduro). Tries and tested here in NorCal spring and summer so far.

    Great Bike Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got the first version of these last season. Loved the shorts for their simplicity, but the chamois didn't fit very well so I ended up just using my other chamois with the shorts. I hear they got a fit update on the outer and liner shorts this season, and tore mine up a bit crashing on the DH bike last year, so I was stoked to get a pair of these new ones. I definitely agree with the rumors of improved fit. Most notable, the waist band got more micro-adjustments to get that perfect, and the chamois has more rise in the rear.

    Dreamy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was riding in other brand liners and prana mojo shorts (great shorts, not knocking them) before switching to this pair. Woah what a difference it has made. The fit on the shorts is spot on, with a little stretch in the material to move with you while pedaling so they never slide down. The liners are super breathable and have a generous chamois to keep you on your saddle longer. 10/10 would recommend.

    Dirt Craft Shorts Review

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Of course, it takes Patagonia getting into the game to get some really stellar mountain bike shorts that fit and perform the way they ought to. I have a pair of the first generation Dirt Craft shorts without the liner; they are top-notch, but the addition of a (really nice) chamois takes this new version up a level and makes the admittedly premium price well worth it. The fit is great—dialed for good coverage and motion without looking wide or baggy, with details like a slanted cut that covers your knees while leaving the back free of extra fabric. The side zip pocket is generous and the hook-and-ladder waist is much better than Velcro in terms of finding and keeping your fit. The only complaints I have are that the hand pockets are a little shallow and I wish the waist adjustment didn't have any elastic, because elastic eventually does wear out and these look like they could last forever otherwise. I guess I'd also ask for an identical zip pocket on the other side if you really wanted to make them perfect. But these are truly awesome shorts and I recommend them without reservation.

      Cool and comfortable

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I got these for my boyfriend recently, and he loves them! They fit well, seem durable, and are easy to move in. The included chamois is pretty big, but it's comfortable.

      Quality!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The Patagonia Dirt Craft shorts are awesome! They are true to size and fit great. The length isn't super long and the shorts themselves aren't to baggy. Awesome buy!

      Awesome Bike Shorts!

        Really comfortable and so far durable!

        Patagonia, please keep making!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I seriously threw all my other cycling shorts and liners away and bought multiple pairs of these. They are amazing. Breathable, comfortable and just all around actually comfortable.
        I need Patagonia to invest more into this line because I will continue buying. I really wish they had a winter lineup for us cold weather riders.

        Had to buy another pair

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: True to size

        My dad loves these shorts so much I had to get him another pair. The fit is true, the quality is superb of both the shorts and the chamois, and they look freakin' sweet.

        Awesome shorts

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

        Just like everyone else, I LOVE these shorts. The chamois is super comfy and the shorts are a great material.

        My favorite part is that you can wear them casually and they don't look ridiculous like a lot of bike shorts do. They are a little longer than a casual short but not too wild.
