Fox Racing Ranger Short - Men's

$89.95
Color:
Size:

Cut trail teeth.

The Ranger Shorts are among Fox Racing's most popular items because they're the shorts that so many of us cut our own trail teeth on. The Ranger sits right at the knee, with ample room to pedal and stretch out without it being baggy like a gravity-specific short, but the waist is easier to dial on the fly, even if you can only spare one hand for waistband fiddling.

Bad design. Wrong button selection

WHY Do they have a snap-on button? WHYYYY??? Everything else is good with these shorts. BUT, and this is a big BUT, the snap-on button just comes loose super easily. Every time I put my hands in my pocket to grab my phone. Every time I need to accommodate my hip-pack. It's just not meant to work with MTB activities. As a reference, they are loose on me. I promise is not a tight belly issue.

Keep coming back to these

This is probably my third pair of Ranger shorts and I keep coming back to them as my preferred shorts for biking. They are simple and to the point and the 32 fits me just as well as other size 32 pants and shorts. The liner that comes with these is very nice as well. For a pair of bike shorts that won’t break the bank you can’t go wrong with the Rangers.

To say that I was underwhelmed by these shorts would be an epic understatement. These are some of the most poorly designed mountain biker shorts I've ever tried. The first is issues is these are longer than described in Backcountry's listing. Secondly, the liner short is laughably weak for a short of this price, with thin chamois that isn't very effective at tamping vibration, and the waistband lack sufficient elasticity to keep them up when you ride. They also lack compression in the legs. The outer short portion is even more poorly designed, with a too slim (vertically) waistband and the cinch straps don't stay where you adjust, loosening constantly while you ride, leaving you having to frequently pull the shorts back up and re-cinch them - the adjustment straps would be better with a locking cam on them, or just make them Velcro so they don't slip. Definitely do not recommend these, they're awful.

I have never heard or seen anyone rating a liner for vibration damping characteristics... guess there's always a first

Originally purchased a pair of medium (34) shorts, however, they were to large. So I returned them for pair of 32s. Wore them on my ride today and seem fine. Only complaint they are a bit long, may have to get them hemmed.

Great short with flaws

In size 36 they are true to size, but seem longer than advertised. The short is made really well, works great on the bike and I love the material. I like the external adjustments for size. This new model has a button, but no zipper, odd but works great. Overall a good short that could have been great.

Not the same as the older models

I own two older models of this short that fit me perfectly. I'm 5'10" 145lbs, cyclist build. I don't like baggy clothes. Fox just went with the trend of Fattening America and seemingly just sized up across the line. Size Sm that used to fit me perfectly now just fits like all the garbage enduro-brah stuff out there. Waist is bigger and inseam is longer. Returning... the search continues. Also really don't like that the waist adjustment is external and visible. Adds an additional element of cheapness to the product. Previous models had internal velcro size fitment. I didn't notice that in the pics when ordering the black color.

i'm 5'9" 150lbs, and usually wear about a 29"-30" pant and i just ordered these in a 30" and they were a little big in the waist and long on me as well. Debating on ordering the 28" and crossing my fingers the fit is a little better.
