Women's Tyrolean Bike Shorts - 9½"

True To Size
November 4, 2022

Comfy and lightweight

These are great lightweight mtb shorts (could also be used for other outdoor pursuits). It took me a couple of days to get used to the "backward" pockets but now I like it. Fits my cell phone or a small snack for easy access. Waist band is comfortable and the pattern is cute.

Best Bike Shorts!

These bike shorts are my new favorite for any type of ride. They are so comfortable and easy to put on while staying put while you are riding. The pockets are so useful as well. They perfectly fit your phone, while not interfering with leg motion, and additional items. I am a convert and will never use another pair of bike shorts again!

Pockets not usable

I returned these. I was looking for longer shorts to wear casually. I liked them a lot except for the pockets. They simply weren't usable but that may be because they're bike shorts and I was trying to use them for casual wear with pockets for a cell phone, etc.

Hey Barbara, we appreciate the review. You're correct that these shorts were designed to have streamlined features to accommodate for use while on the bike. For casual use, we recommend checking out the [Women's Quandary Shorts - 7"](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-quandary-hiking-shorts-7-inch/58095.html?dwvar_58095_color=FTGN&cgid=womens-shorts).

Luvluvluv these shorts. Soooo comfortable,

Luvluvluv these shorts. Soooo comfortable, especially in hot humid Florida. Dries so fast. Doesn't move around while spinning, no binding, pinching or riding up or down. Nice loose fit and I'm a chubby. Patagonia has by far the nicest mtb clothing. The attention to detail is unmatched. Thank you.

Wonderful feel

Wonderful feel! Like wearing nothing!

Super flattering

Love the lightweight feel and fit. I am 120 pounds, carrying weight in my tummy area. The waist line is perfect as it stretches to fit comfortably.

Perfect shorts

These shorts work just as advertised and a bonus is that they are also great for running and hiking. I have been wanting shorts this length and fit for trail running but they dont exist. I love the fabric.

Lite and Flexible

This material is so different from their other stiffer, thicker ones. These are light, flexible, are just the right length and don't chafe!

September 13, 2021

So Comfy!

These are so light and comfy! I wear them without a chamois for short rides but they are stretchy enough to wear as an over short for longer rides and do have the loops inside the waistband if you want to use the Patagonia liners. These are my favorite shorts for rides and hikes!

September 4, 2021

So comfortable

I bought these originally to bike in, but some days I found myself wanting to wear them hiking or just in the yard. I just bought a second pair because I left them behind on a trip and couldnt live without! Highly recommend

Lightweight & Practical

Comfortable, lightweight biking shorts with 2 handy zippered pockets that secure my iphone. Definitely recommend for biking or hiking.

Great look and feel, but questionable quality

I loved the look and feel of these shorts, so I went out of my way to buy them. I ride quite often, 5+ days a week; and put them to the test right away. First of the pros: They are super lightweight - doesn't feel like you are wearing anything at times They dry quickly and shed dirt well Cons: The butt seam started pulling out after only 2 rid... Read Morees! I understand the lightweight fabric, but would expect them to last a bit longer. They fit on the slightly small side. Returned for a credit.

Thanks for letting us know this happened Jennifer. Despite them being lightweight, this isn't how we expect them to perform. We recommend you send them back to us for a warranty return.

comfy and light, but quality wasn't up to patagonia standards

Loved the material and the waistband, nice to wear with a fanny pack. Comfortable and felt like I had nothing on at times, especially nice in the hotter weather. Big bummer is the seams on the booty started ripping out after only 2 rides! The stitching is slowly pulling out, sending it back for a repair. Never had any patagonia stuff start deterior... Read Moreating so quickly. Crossing my fingers and hoping this was just an anomaly and the repair wear last longer!

Too high waisted

Since I am short, these shorts were too high waisted and ran a little large.

Thanks for your feedback Danelle. You may prefer our [Women's Dirt Craft Bike Shorts](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-dirt-craft-mountain-bike-shorts-12-inch/24588.html). They have a bit of a lower rise.

A short for all activities

First off, best pockets ever! The rear offset works so well on the bike and trail. Dry faster than any shorts I own. Surfed in them the other night and they stayed put. Two thumbs up, yes one more pair please, etc.

June 10, 2021

Lightweight and Comfy

Favorite bike shorts to date! They are very lightweight making them great for hot days in Utah. I'm 5'6", 125 lbs and usually wear a 4 to 6. I could squeeze into a 4, but went with the 6 and am happy I did-- they stay up fine and have a looser fit around the waistline, which is comfortable when I'm hunched over the bike. Highly ...

They ride up

Love the elastic waistband, the two pockets, the lightness, how they look while standing but when you ride they creep up and look silly. Wish you did this same short but a little longer. Elastic waistband is so comfy. Pockets on the side of your thigh is the best location for carrying a phone with headphones. Curious if Patagonia will make this sho... Read Morert in a longer length?

In the meantime, check out our Women’s Dirt Craft Bike Short, https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-dirt-craft-mountain-bike-shorts-12-inch/24588.html?dwvar_24588_color=RLCG. They come in a 12" inseam and also come with a chamois for extra comfort.

Wow new favorite shorts!

These shorts combined with Patagonias bibs is my new favorite combo for biking. These shorts are very comfortable and stretchy. Your phone can also fit in either zippered pocket but you wont feel it while you ride. I have a knee length pair of bike shorts and then these and I think I prefer the shorter length. Overall will definitely buy another pa... Read Moreir in the future and the green is great!

Comfy and stylish

I wasn't really looking for bike shorts -- as a taller gal, I just wanted shorts with a much longer inseam than I have been able to find. Sure, I'll wear them over my liner bike shorts, but I'm really happy to have shorts for running and ultimate Frisbee. More sun protection, comfy waistband and dry, nice fit. I'm 5'10&quot...

Awesome Material

Great fabric, love the cut and color. Perfect fit for my 5'4, 125lb frame. Shorts end just above knee and don't impede peddling. Super soft, lightweight, flexible material. Elastic waistband makes for better fit and easy on/off.

March 29, 2021

Material too thin

The shorts fit great but didnt like the thin material. I am 5 1. 115 lbs and the 4 was slightly small but the 6 was too big especially wide legs. If you bike in very warm country- they might be ok, not for me Sadly returned.

Go-to for Summer Rides

These shorts are ultra-comfy - they are breezy and lightweight, which makes them great for summer rides. I can trust my phone to stay in the side pocket without interfering with my riding. They are long enough to protect your thighs without being awkwardly long. I also love how well they pack down so I can throw them in my waist pack on days when...

Game changer bikepacking short!

The Tyrolean shorts are a game changer. I wore them for 12 days straight - traveling to the Colorado Trail, riding the entirety of the CT, returning from the CT, and unpacking from the CT. They are so quick to dry, and lightweight. Not having to deal with a zipper too pee, when trying to keep moving all day every day, was a luxury. The waist band h... Read Moreeld its size the entire trip. Having zip pockets on both side of the short, which actually fit a phone was a highly appreciated and utilized feature as well. Every day I felt grateful for my Tyrolean Bike Shorts! I appreciated the shorter length for this type of trip, but do not see myself wearing them as often for the type of riding I do on a more daily basis (because I like knee pads).

Too Big but so comfy

I will tell you my size just so you have an idea. 5'3" 210 pounds, athletic build usually size 16 but Patagonia normally runs small or doesn't fit at all. First of all I want to tell you how happy I am that Patagonia is finally recognizing larger women as athletes that want quality gear, thank you. I purchase size 18 and they were hu... Read Morege. I rode hard in them and they were falling down. Now inside that made me happy because something was too big but not riding. They legs were huge and kept getting caught on my seat and there wasn't a draw string to hold the top up. I would like to get another pair in 16.

comfy, simple shorts

I was hesitant when ordering these because I thought the shorts might look weird without any sort of front closure but it's actually one of my favorite parts since you can just slip them on. They're so lightweight and easy to wear and they pair perfectly with the Nether bike liners. I'm usually an XS/S in Patagonia bottoms (5'7&... Read Morequot; 130 lb). The 2 fits snugly on me but not uncomfortably at all. I think I'm going to get one more pair in a 4 just for a looser style.

Fit True to Size

I hesitated to purchase these based on other reviews that suggested sizing was off, but these fit perfectly taking my usual size. The fabric is lightweight and stretchy. They fit perfectly over my chamois.

My new favorite shorts!

I love these shorts! They are super lightweight and stretchy. I have been wearing them over the endless ride bike short liners and they work great together. I love the elastic waistband. My phone hangs in pockets perfectly while I ride so that I can't even feel it is there. I think these shorts would also be great for hiking or rafting too!

Strange fit and runs small

I received these as a gift. My husband sized up for me, as is usual in Patagonia for me, and they still didnt fit. Or actually they just fit but wouldnt accommodate a liner. They also fit strange in the front/crotch area. Love the pattern. Wish they worked.

Better fit, but practicality suffers

For me, at 57, 135lbs, hourglass shape, Patagonia mtb shorts have never ever fit. Too tight on the thighs and a weird gaping waist. These are better - once on. Getting them on is a challenge because waist could barely stretch over my thighs (Im by no means a big thighed gal but yikes, I sure felt like it grappling these over my tush). Once on, the... Read More fit is comfy, I wouldnt wear them as tight as the model is that just looks uncomfortable. I tried on an 8 and they were waaay too big. So on the bike... well the front waist isnt flexible like the back which is a pity because it does inhibit some of that belly breathing. Overall these will probably end up being worn more as casual shorts, however they are super light so will be interesting to see if they impress me more during the hotter months. Thanks Patagonia for trying something new with mtb shorts for women, but for me these still arent quite right.
