    Shorts for Short Guys

    I'm about 5'7" Not long thighs. Regular baggy cargo shorts are like knickers on me and I don't like having below the knee coverage when riding XC. To0 much friction.

    10" inseam max for me.

    Anyone else out there have a similar body type and desire for a shorter MTB short? What brands/Style?

    Thanks

    I'm 5'5" and just got some Jett Ride shorts. Standing, they hit just below my knee cap and when seated pedaling they are just above, ideal for me. I wear a 30/30 in Levis but ordered size 28's from Jett. They stay put on my waist so not creeping down as I ride providing a nice consistent fit and feel.

    Same height as you, I currently have a pair of Endura Singel track shorts and works just fine. I have also tried Zoic black market shorts and they are similar in length.

    Fox Ranger, FTW. Stopped wearing my Endura Humvee(heavier, longer, waist button pops out), and my PI Canyon(longer, thin material).
