    Details

    All-mountain shorts from the all-mountain bike makers.

    Yeti isn’t necessarily the first thing you think of when you think bike shorts. That’s about to change, though, with the Yeti Freeland Shorts. Yeti made the Freelands for the type of riding its employees do, in the type of terrain in which they do it. To that end, the Freeland is cut to accommodate knee pads, is stretchy but durable, and is finished with a DWR coating to keep the rain off, since it rains just about every afternoon in Colorado when you’re above 8,000 feet or so.

    • Adjustable waist
    • Compatible with Yeti’s Liner, sold separately
    • Multiple stash pockets
    • Zippered vents
    • DWR treatment
    • Item #YTI0155

    Matching my Yeti SB6

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

    I love my Yeti SB6 so much I wanted to match with these super comfortable and stylish shorts. The shorts are durable, water resistant, and have plenty of pockets. I highly recommend these shorts for any one into mountain biking.

    Yup these are nice

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love these shorts, they are light and very comfortable. I was slightly disappointed that they were not padded when I purchased them but they were still a great buy. The short runs long like most biking shorts do but the lining is very smooth which makes for a comfortable ride. Also the vents on the front of the short is in a great place to provide enough ventilation.

    Decent short, bad vents

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    The good - construction quality, material, and overall product.
    The bad - zippered vents are kinda useless , they provide no ventilation during pedaling action and there is no mesh backing to the vent holes.
    The ugly - still trying to find a well thought out and designed short!!!! grrrr (Dakine Synclines from 2010 seem to be the best I have used/found)

    These are the best~!

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

    This is my second year riding in these. They are amazing! Super comfortable, and the leg zips come in handy when it's hot out. My shorts haven't shown any signs of wear even though I've put them through the wringer and crashed in them. A+ would buy again.

    Great shorts!

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

    I was tired of dealing with my overly simple, cheaply made Dakine shorts, so I decided to upgrade. I love these shorts, they have nice built in cinch straps and roomy pockets. I just discovered the vents as well, pretty rad. The fit is great. I wear a 34 waist and I bought the large, they are perfect, no belt required just a little pull on the built in straps and I am good to go.

    One of my favorites

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XXL

    I prefer loose and long shorts these fit the bill. Lightweight, breathable, with 2 open front pockets, 2 zipper side pockets, and adjustable waist. I think Yeti shorts run on the small side; These XXLs fit similar to a L Pearl Izumi Launch and a L Pearl Izumi Impact shorts that I also own and love. I'm 5'10", 220 lbs, ~38" waist, ~44 hip.

    Nice shorts

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

    • Size Bought: Large

    Nice bike shorts. I'm 5'10" 160 lbs, 33 waist and 30 inseam- went with large size. Good fit. The turquoise color isn't as bright or obnoxious as you might think. Happy with purchase so far.

    Only MTB Shorts You Need

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

    I have riden several times with these, and they are the best MTB shorts I have owned. I wear the Yeti Como Liner with these, and they are a great pair for any avid MTB. Comfortable, yet can handle the usage. Zippers are very durable. There are plenty of pockets for storage. Strongly encourage these for your next pair of shorts.

    Nice!

    • Fit: True to size

    I've only ridden a couple of times with these, but so far, they are great. The material doesn't seem stretchy, but there is no restriction of movement at all. This includes making climbs or trying to bomb a long downhill. The pants hang over the knees and don't interfere with knee pads at all. The side zip pockets are good sized, and the additional hand pockets are deep enough that they are actually useful. The shorts breathe well and are pretty cool, even at temps in he 70s.

    I was worried about the sizing since some reviews said that the shorts run small. If anything, the waist is larger than expected. If you have doubts, get a soft tape measure and actually measure your waist. You might be surprised by what clothing manufactures are "telling" what your waist size is.

    Go to shorts

    • Size Bought: Small

    Yeti knocked it out of the park with these shorts! These are by far some of the most comfortable bike shorts I've ever had. They are light weight while still being durable, shedding water and mud. Plenty of pockets that are well placed and not cumbersome like a lot of shorts in this category. I'll be picking up another pair in the Yeti blue to put into the rotation.

    Killer Shorts, multipurpose

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

    Have used these for many trail rides in north central AZ, on very hardpacked terrain, lots of red rock and sandstone, all plants here are like barbwire, they shred clothes. These shorts have been beat and used as every day wear shorts, they are that good. Besides MTB, they have been used hiking, running, swimming, hot tubs, pools, creeks, lakes, taken several good spills, the shorts saved my upper thighs and rear end from getting seriously abraded. They have faded after a hard spring. summer, & fall and many washings (got the brown & yellow ones) but, the buttons, zippers and vents still work flawlessly. Medium'ish sized pockets, can hold cell in one, wallet and blade in other, or 4-6 gels in one pocket, two bars in the other.
    Best MTB shorts I have owned in the last 10 years, lots of cheap quality stuff out there today, these are the real deal and can take heavy usage. They have a nice adjustment system (waist tabs, small webbing and friction buckles in front waist on both sides) and a no slip strip around the inside waist (3 silicone tacky strips), if you tuck in a baggier sized jersey, so its not flappin' and gettin' caught on cactus, junipers, or the worst out here...mesquite!, have "butt burned" these over a dozen times on my rear tire hard, and the shorts do not have nylon burn, no tear, no frays. The front vents (across top of inner thigh) are awesome for ventilation when its hot out. They also dry quickly if used as board shorts, well done Yeti! Getting more as daily wear, for beater shorts if they ever go back on sale. I'm a 34-35 waist and got the XL size, perfect fit. These are not hipster, 'too tight' shorts...these are man shorts.

    Comfortable with good look

    Shorts fit to size. Great fit and comfortable. Appear to be durable. Would get a second pair.

    Perfect MTB Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L 34

    After owning several pairs of cheaper MTB shorts of late, the overall quality of these shorts stands out. Awesome material, design, fit, and function. Great length and right amount of baggy-ness mixed with cycle specific fit around the crotch so you won't get hung up on the seat. Best shorts i've tried, I will certainly be ordering another pair. I am 6'1" 180 with a 32 inch waist and fairly large legs/rear and find the 34s fits well and true to size - i.e. have extra room in the waist but can be cinched down comfortably with the waist cinches.

    Versatile - Yeti is Golden

    • Size Bought: 36

    I have been riding the last three years throughout most of Colorado's trails (technical and cross country) on athletic shorts. The best being HYLETE's verge shorts. Until I road in these. The quality and design is excellent. I found my self wearing these around town. The pockets are in the perfect location for avoiding items pocking into on your ride. Plus I like the not slip grip on the waist band. Note: they run a little small

    Can't Be Faulted

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/32

    These may be the most comfortable pair of shorts I have ever used. Good pocket space for storing the necessities on the trail. Yeti made their shorts with the same attention to detail as their bikes. LOVE them!

    Love the fit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L/34

    I really like these. They're cut well for pedaling. I wouldn't necessarily put them down as a relaxed fit. I found them to be more regular fit to fitted in the areas around your saddle. This is great for pedaling and keeps you from getting hung up on your seat. Great pockets and I like the zip vents in the front. They run true to size.

    What more needs to be said??

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

    So I have had a chance to ride in Norrona, Pearl Izumi, and Dynafit MTB shorts, and these are by far my favorite! From downhill parks to cross country rides, these shorts kill it. The front zips allow for venting to cool off on those super hot rides, and there is plenty of flexibility to ride all day. Having just made the transition to clipless pedals and taking a couple tumbles along the way, I can honestly say these stand up to the test. No tears thus far and they are EXTREMELY comfortable! They do run a tad small... I normally wear a 34 waist and got the XL and they work perfect.... the waist cinches work perfectly. Pick these up and tear it up on the trail! Hit me up directly if you have questions about these or other Yeti biking apparel.

    Some shorts in the pics include belt loops while others don't. Do these shorts come with belt loops or not?
