Essential MTB Short

Whether you're just getting started trail riding, or you're a seasoned veteran, getting your staples dialed is the first step to a new riding season, and POC's essential MTB short makes a perfect start. These trail-ready baggies feature lightweight, durable nylon fabric that stretches with you, while actively seeking out sweat and pulling it away from your skin to keep you dry. They are cut for the trail, with a little extra coverage at the back to keep you covered when you're on the bars, and pre-bent knees ideal for hammering on the pedals. The long inseam provides coverage against scrub oak and low-hanging branches, and pairs up seamlessly with body armor, so you don't have uncomfortable gaps. To finish the Essential shorts off, POC tops them with a DWR coating for shedding mud and stains, and packs in adjustable hook-and-loop tabs at the waist for a comfortable fit that's fine tuned just for you.

I really wanted to love these shorts, I love POC, the material is amazing and they have zip pockets. However they were more fitted than I wanted them to be (if you have quads, these are NOT baggie), and the pockets were just a little small, they fit my phone but when pedaling the phone would bump into my pelvis. Unfortunately I'll have to return. For size reference, I'm a women's size 8-10 and the Large fit me well, aside from the thigh fit being more fitted then I'd like.

I've put it through the wringer

These are by far my favorite MTB shorts. They're lightweight and long enough to cover my kneepads (no gap!). I love the fabric because it stretches with you as you ride without bunching up. They really are the essential MTB short. I wear them for enduro rides but they are so comfortable and well-designed that I would recommend them for any type of riding.
