Yeti Cycles Norrie Short - Women's
Yeti CyclesNorrie Short - Women's

Ready for big mountains.

Yeti’s long been dedicated to female riders, advancing the notion that women didn’t need specific geometry to ride the same terrain — long before it became the norm. But, while bikes need not differ, shorts are a different story. The Yeti Norrie Shorts were created to meet the need for an aggressive, protective baggy, designed and sewn to fit women.

The fabric is a heavyweight stretch polyester that’ll hold up to nasty crashes, and it was finished with a DWR treatment to ward off rain and dew. At the waist, you’ll find silicone grippers inside the waistband to keep the shorts in place, and double snaps secure the shorts. Additionally, there’s a stretchy yoke at the back that allows the shorts to move with you, so the shorts fit well, but you don’t exert too much pressure on those snaps, which allows the shorts to stay where they’re supposed to.

  • Protective, 12-inch inseam
  • Internal glide patches and seamless crotch
  • Two hand pockets, one zippered stash pocket
  • Compatible with Yeti’s Ruby liner
  • DWR treatment
  • Stretch polyester construction

Favorite enduro shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unlike many other ladies mtb shorts out there, these fit exceptionally well when both standing and while seated on the bike. They are slightly tapered so they aren't overly baggy at the knee. If you're looking for shorts to cover your DH pads, these aren't it -- the POC enduro shorts are much better suited for that. These are also thicker than other enduro shorts on the market, with idea pocket locations.

I'm 5'8, 140lb with fairly big hips which has often caused a problem finding shorts that fit in the hip without being super baggy in the crotch -- and these in a medium fit great! The adjustable hip cords are also superior to the velcro adjusters that most other brands use.

She loves em!!

Bought these for my GF and these are pretty much all she wants to wear when we ride. I guess I better get her another pair!

Favorite shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I first ordered a medium because everyone told me these shorts ran way too small, I ended up returning them and ordering a small instead (my normal size- I am 5'4" and 115 pounds). The shorts are great, thick enough to keep warmer in the fall. I even wore them to bike in the snow and they kept me much warmer than my other shorts would have! I like the length on the shorts, just long enough to reach my kneepads.

Goldilocks

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really wanted to love these shorts, tried a couple times. I borrowed a friend's small a few months ago when visiting and really liked the fit. Went to order the same shorts and the small was way to tight and much longer than I had remembered my friend's pair being. I returned the small for a medium but they were way too big. Both sizes were fairly long for someone who's on the shorter side (I'm 5'4"). I have a wider bottom and a smaller waist, unfortunately these shorts aren't made for curvy lower-halfs.

Best shorts ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

Been wearing these since 2015 and just ordered my 3rd pair. I will not ride technical trails in any other shorts. These shorts are trim in the legs, so there's no extra fabric to hang up on your seat or frame. But there's enough stretch that they don't constrict your movement. The waist does not move. No chamois hanging out the back or uncomfortable creeping down at all... they stay in place. And they are cute and flattering. Probably best for women who are not super curvy. I've got a 28" waist and 36" hips, so almost no curves at all. Usually fit in smalls, but definitely need a medium in these. Also, make sure you spray the muddy/dirty spots with Oxyclean before washing. They do tend to stain otherwise.

True to size, bit too heavy for me

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

I love the fit and style but with the liners and hot weather, I felt like they were too stiff and didn't breathe enough. I'm sure they will be great in spring and fall though and they are high quality.

Very happy

    I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs. the shorts fit well with room for movement. The ruching on the sides adds a nice feminine touch. I wear the Yeti chamois underneath in S and it's a perfect combo. I bought these twice.

    Great Shorts

      These bike shorts are great, I have one pair of yeti shorts and decided to add this pair to my collection. They fit more snug than most shorts. Typically I wear a medium but in these I went up to a large. They are a bit more snug than I would prefer but I love the color, the length and durability of these shorts. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because I wish these weren't as snug and they came in an XL.

      Awesome shorts!

      • Size Bought: Large

      I use the shorts for mountain and trail riding on a regular basis. The fabric seems to be all seasonal! The color is vibrant, and though the sizing is off ( as other reviews have stated), with the help and experience of one of your awesome gearheads I was able to make the right choice! At 5' 4", 145 pounds, I usually wear an eight. But in these shorts the large is great! Accommodates my booty and cinches at my waist. The great customer service at Backcountry.com keeps me coming back!

      Wife is Happy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these shorts for my wife for a 4 day mountain biking trip. She loved the fit and bright color. She said they were comfortable to ride and she loved how flattering they are.

      Too Tight

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large

      These are very well made and I wanted to like them but they were too tight in the thigh and kept riding up. I usually wear a size 10 pant and the large was too small in the butt and tights.

      Great shorts if you aren't too muscular

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: medium

      I love these shorts, but they are tight in the thigh and butt for their size. Cyclists often have muscular thighs! These shorts are tight. I might keep them, but I can barely fit a chamois underneath, even though the waist fits. I'm 5'8", 140lbs, with a 38" hip measurement. I want these shorts to fit so bad because I really like them! I love the exterior waist adjustment and the interior waist grippers to keep them in place. Love these shorts, just give my strong quads another extra inch or two in the thighs!
      A large would be too big in the waist.

      Awesome and flattering

        Gave as a gift. 2nd pair purchased.
        Ordered a small for 5'7" 112 lbs they are roomy and could have gotten an XS, but she prefers to have them a tad baggy.

        Fancy Pants

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
        • Fit: Runs large
        • Size Bought: small

        Bought these for my fiance and glad I did. Very flattering. Bought a small, but could have gone with an XS as they seem to run a tad large. They do have adjustable tabs on the side.

        Sweet Shorts

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

        These are the best bike shorts I have ever worn. The fit is amazingly comfortable and are designed for a woman's body. I spend no time worrying about getting shorts hung up on my bike when trying to get off my seat or shifting my weight and all my time enjoying my ride. Thank you, Yeti for doing your research and making a kick ass product.

        Thanks for the review Susan! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

        Built for Slim Hips

          Purchased these hoping they'd be feminine, yet fit for shredding, and long enough to cover the tops of my knees. I have the Ruby liner in a Large and it fits like a dream, so I went with the Large in these shorts. Unfortunately, I had to return them, they were a bit too snug and the length was too short. I'm 5' 7", 150lbs, and wear in a Large in other mnt bike shorts (Troy Lee). - Though these were not the shorts for me, I'd recommend them for a few reasons. - The fabric felt super durable, these may actually last a life time. - There's a convenient waist adjustment on either side.- The articulation around the knee would make these comfortable for peddling.

          Great bike shorts

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

          Super durable (I've wiped out on them a bunch with no obvious damage) and they're just the right size to give me full coverage down to my knee pads, but still accommodate the pads.

          I got the S/4-6 -- I end up cinching up the waist straps a *lot* to fit (I have a 26" waist), but they fit well in the butt and give me the right amount of fabric/slack in the thighs for when I'm peddling hard.

          weird sizing

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: medium

          Made well, but the sizing is messed up. I'm usually a size small, but with these shorts, the small was very tight in the butt and thighs, but the waist was perfect. Had to size up to a medium and the butt and thighs are perfect, but the waist is HUGE! Good think for the waist cinchers on the side. Otherwise these are great shorts and seems to be made to last.

          Sad to return them

          • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
          • Fit: Runs small
          • Size Bought: XS

          I really liked these but for the price I couldn't justify them. They just weren't going to work for riding. They were very snug in the legs but kind of huge in the waist. The adjustments in the waist allowed me to tighten them to fit my waist however I need something that was going to be looser in the thighs for riding in. Once you tighten them in the waist these looked great on me and show of my curves. That's only good if I'm going to be wearing them for casual use though. Couldn't justify keeping them just to wear them for show. Love the color and wouldn't have wanted it getting dirty anyway since I ride in a lot of muddy areas. I'm not that big in the thighs but I suppose my waist is smaller in proportion to my hips so I have this problem a lot. Maybe others won't have an issue with the sizing like I did. measurements are 32-24-(36/37) if that helps anyone else.

          My go-to shorts for riding

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

          I could see how the sizing of these shorts could be a bit odd to some. The pants are slightly tighter than I expected. They do, however have a perfect amount of stretch to them. I wear shorts underneath while I ride, so I would say they fit me perfectly. I have a fairly slender/athletic body type. I love them.

          I purchased these in teal and love the color. I get a lot of compliments on them. I would buy them in every color if I could. :)
