Patagonia Women's Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts

The Patagonia women's Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts pack a host of straightforward, well thought out features into a simple pair of shorts. The material and seams stretch together, offering an unrestricted range of motion, and the lightweight fabric wicks moisture, repels water, and dries rapidly. They were hands down my favorite shorts to ride in this past season. Testing Conditions: I tested the Patagonia women’s Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts as a member of the Trailspace Review Corps. I wore the shorts… Full review

Patagonia Women's Endless Ride Liner Shorts

The Patagonia Women’s Endless Ride Liner Shorts are a straightforward padded liner designed specifically for mountain biking. My personal litmus test when it comes to outdoor gear is whether or not I notice it when I’m out on the trail. I want my gear to fade into the background so I can focus on riding. This liner passes with flying colors. It stays in place, provides unrestricted movement, and vents moisture—keeping me comfortable while my body gets worked (...scraped, bruised) and enjoys… Full review

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

I've been using Opedix products for three months now and find they provide great stability, support, and pain reduction over the day. They are also very comfortable and the low waistband means I can easily wear them under pants and shorts. I have suffered with sacroiliac joint and hip problems for 15 years. I've tried many sacroiliac and hip belts/supports, most of which were uncomfortable, unhelpful and/or painful. Opedix is the product I have been looking for. I use Opedix Core-Tec Shorts. Cheers,… Full review

Running Kilts Running Kilt

Lightweight, comfortable, freedom. I am a nature and wildlife photographer and am out in the mountains or desert at least once a week.

Patagonia Men's Strider Pro Short

Nice running shorts with multiple pockets. When Patagonia first came out with the Strider Pro I was really excited as this was exactly what I was looking for in a running short for a long day in the mountains—that is until I saw the inseam—5", sorry that's just too short for my liking. It took a few years, but they now offer the Strider Pro in 7" inseam and I jumped. The shorts are very comfortable (multiple 20+ mile days with them); I was definitely a little iffy when I saw the liner—a long… Full review

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

Technical tights that improve alignment for increased performance. A valuable tool that can be used for training, racing, or injury rehabilitation. When I first received the Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 tights I was not sure what to make of them. Opedix has utilized years of scientific research in the biomechanical movement of the human body when designing their performance wear. In order to achieve what Opedix calls Kinetic Health, they have designed their tights with what they call "Torque Reform Technology"… Full review

prAna Men's Mojo Short

Comfortable, versatile, light, dries fast, well made. The short is very simple, which I find to be a good thing.  One of the best buys I have made.  I use these every day in the summer. I climb with them as the elastic band is non constrictive.  Sometimes I run with them.  They have two front pockets and a back one.  They are also comfortable to wear over tights if climbing in winter.  They dry fast, but are non adjustable.  I have had them for years and they show no signs of wear.  Full review
