The North Face hasn't been involved with mountain biking for long, but when it decided to, it dove in with both feet. The Women's Chain Smoke Short is a good example of this all-in approach. With breathable, stretch fabric, zippered vents, and a feminine, women-specific cut, the Chain Smoke is no wishy-washy entry into the market.

The Chain Smoke's main body is made with a lightweight, breathable, stretch polyester/elastane blend, so you won't ever feel it bind as you contort in mid-air. The fabric lets your skin breathe to regulate its temperature while it wicks moisture away. Two hand pockets take care of your valuables.

Chain Smoke Shorts also have a women-specific fit that fits you better than boxy men's shorts. Adjustable waist tabs allow you to dial the fit exactly.When it gets really hot out, you can pop open the mesh-lined, zippered thigh vents to allow cooling air to flow through the shorts.

The North Face Chain Smoke Shorts are available in sizes XS to XL. They come in TNF Black or Kodiak Blue.

No Padding

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:True to size

These are well-made, however, they do not include padding. Just an FYI for those looking to buy "mountain biking' apparel.
