Strengths:    
The (black color) looks nice on or off the bike.
Adjustable waist tabs are handy.
Front pockets zip, rear pocket for wallet is nice size.
Handy sunglass wipe inside pocket.


Weaknesses:    
Chamois pad is a little short in the front and very uncomfortable when you (or it) shifts when riding.
List price is insane, they are only a good value when on sale.
Sizing seems to run a little large.
Waist adjust tabs are inside the waistband, and will rub the heck out of you unless they are perfectly aligned. Adjust them once a ride and you'll be OK


Bottom Line:   
Nice shorts that ride well even though they are long. Very comfy. They do not drag on the knees as much as I feared. Plenty of pockets, but not too heavy that you think about them much when riding. I would never pay list price but they are worthy shorts in the ~$60 range.

Strengths:    This shorts are great at first, all the pockets, I-pod pocket, etc. They are light and comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Weak... I have now confirmed after using 3 pairs in less than 2 years, they get totally scraped in the bottom, where they touch with the bike's seat, plus also get totalle bleached by sun exposure. I am a weekend - warrior, I leave in a city, and ride 8 hours per week top, so I believe this is totally bad, as the cost of this pants is not cheap for this things to happen.

Bottom Line:   
If you but them, think that you will be tossing them out afte 12-14 months of usage, or having them repeared and using with a flower power / psycodelic t-shirt!

Strengths:    Built well, feel very solid without being bulky or too hot. Perfect length for me and crotch that hugs for comfort and ease of getting behind the saddle, but not restrictive like other huggers that put on a sausage display.

Weaknesses:    I suppose weakness is price, but if you're as cheap as me you'll find the -1 model year for roughly half price. At the $54 I paid I'd say these shorts are a bargain.

Bottom Line:   
First off I have none of the experience described below with poor workmanship. The liner is very comfortable and well made...no sides premature wearing. The shorts themselves are rugged without being having the downhill stiffness. I'm happy to pedal all day long and don't find them too hot even with lack of air vents which you might come to expect for a short that costs $100. Pockets are straight forward and simple (back pockets, front pockets, and cargo). No hidden zippers, pockets on a slant, etc. I love the back pockets for heading to the pub...I can put my wallet where its supposed to be and not have too much crap jammed in too few pockets. The grey cammo on the 2011 looks great. The length is perfect for my riding and fits just fine over knee pads.

Strengths:    Great Fit and looks.Zip able pockets.Removable chamois.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
They fit great, and look good( I bought the red ones). You can wear the shorts without the linen. They are very comfy .I don't understand all the bad reviews. I have fun riding in them, and the liner does its job.The only thing you have to do is wash them COLD or you will have pink socks.They are still the same color as when i bought them.

Submitted by PeytonP a Weekend Warrior from Center, TX

Date Reviewed: September 6, 2011

Strengths:    Extremely comfortable! Look great on/off trail. I wish I could wear these 24/7.
Chamois is the the mid-level Fox line, but I wouldn't ride without it now. It's detachable (huge plus), which makes my desire to wear the main shorts around all day much more enjoyable.
Fast drying (and I sweat A TON)


Weaknesses:    Just a tad bit long? The ends would tuck into my knee/shin guards at times- bearable.

Bottom Line:   
I have no idea where the terrible reviews are coming from. Maybe I haven't given enough time for wear? I can't see how these shorts will tear up at all (not considering a gnarly, rocky crash.
They're extremely comfortable, and my girlfriend kept looking at me and saying, "You look really good in those shorts." lol Seriously, you can't beat something that's awesome to ride in, wear all day long, and have you're girlfriend love too!

Strengths:    Outers look "cool". Lots of handy pockets. Waist adjustability with velcro straps is effective.

Weaknesses:    Right out of the bag the inner chamois has stitching coming apart.
The legs on the others are way too long, why ? Who can pedal like that ? I have to fold mine up.
And most importantly, the inner chamois has some stitching that has been giving me very bad sores at lower inside part of my buttocks.


Bottom Line:   
I wouldn't have bought them if there was a local shop that carries fox clothing and I had the opportunity to see them first.

Strengths:    Look good

Weaknesses:    Terrible inner chamois

Bottom Line:   
Not the worst if you wear a good lycra short underneath. I wouldnt even consider trying on the liner that came with these. Overall too baggy and get heavy when wet. Too many pockets. Who needs pockets when there are camelbacks? I would much prefer something slimmer, lighter and more vented.

Strengths:    NONE!!!

Weaknesses:    The inner liner ripped before I even had a chance to wear them. Total crap!!!

Bottom Line:   
You would think that you get what you pay for with FOX but this is not the case with the shorts. FOX should have a disclamer that their shorts are made in a third world country. Thanks FOX you have just lost my business.

Strengths:    Great fabric
Not too warm
Comfortable


Weaknesses:    Not the greatest fitting chamois

Bottom Line:   
I've been riding in these for close to two years and they have lasted me fine. No issues. No ripping, no tearing...nadda. And I have crashed them quite badly.

What more do you want? Shorts with a removable liner that lasts two years (and still going strong!) and fit well.

Strengths:    look okay

Weaknesses:    uncomfortable, difficult to ride in

Bottom Line:   
I ocassionally wear these shorts grocery shopping, but I only wore them once for riding. Bottom line is that they're messy to ride in, and I'd rather ride in something that I can forget I'm wearing. They're noisy and bunch up and I hate the inner chamois. I got them on sale online, which was a good thing; but I'll never buy another pair of Fox shorts if I can't try them on first.

Submitted by rikjez a Cross Country Rider from Windsor, CT

Date Reviewed: June 16, 2008

Strengths:    Look good. Good cut; not too baggy fit keeps from snagging on seat. Incuded liner with what appears top be a good quality chamois.

Weaknesses:    Chamois is cut terrible making it fit very baggy and bunches up the first time you wear them on the trail. Attachment system for inner liner is useless.

Bottom Line:   
I was so psyched when I found a pair of these on clearance at my LBS this weekend, as I remembered checking them out last fall but just not wanting to spend $90 on a pair of shorts at the time. I have since found that you do get what you pay for when it comes to good shorts with a quality liner after picking a set of Pearl Izumi Microsensor bib shorts for my long road rides. After checking the build quality and considering these originally sold for $90, I figured they'd be awesome. Man! Was I ever wrong!!! Wore them for a four hour ride on Saturday, and will never wear them again. Felt like I was wearing a big, wet, sloppy diaper after a while that kept buching up and falling down. The inner liner is just cut really weird and the chamois kept scrunching up. I think these do run a size larger than usual so make sure you buy them on the snug side.

Date Reviewed: November 20, 2007

Strengths:    Looks, pockets

Weaknesses:    Expensive,The snap pops opens even though the waist fits fine, legs are tight even though they are stretch material, I don't use the liner at all. Who uses a belt when they bike? why have belt loops?

Bottom Line:   
Fox should stick to making shocks, why do companys start with a good product( suspension ), then expand into a clothing company making sunglasses!, sneakers!, surf trunks! and other crap made overseas. Now Fox has stores at the fricking mall! Sell out corporate capitalist!! In my mind there just trying to make more and more money, when they should just concentrate on making high quality suspension. I'm all done with Fox clothing. This is my third pair of so called "baggy" mtn. biking shorts and they are all way to tight fitting in the legs and crotch. Third time a charm Fox!

Zoic Ether vs. Fox Ranger vs. Fox Sergeant

I'm trying to find something comfortable for XC riding and want something knee length but not too long or too short (relative, I know).
