I’ve spent the last month in my Joe Dirts, working at my desk, walking, riding my bike, relaxing with family, and I love them. They are made to last and are much better quality than my old alternatives. Whilst they are super comfy and non-restrictive when active, the material is heavier than my other biking shorts, and that does make them a little warmer.

The Joe Dirt shorts buck the bike trend a bit featuring more of a casual/workwear type of design that you’d pick for a day of hanging out before a big day in the saddle. That being said, the 4- Way stretch and gusseted crotch mean that the Joe Dirt is still at home on the bike. The buttoned phone pocket keeps your phone out of the way while pedaling yet secure enough to not worry about it falling out when you are taking the spicy route to the office or your next brewery stop.
These are a sort of do-it-all short, and are stretchy and moveable enough for a ride, or hauling meteors in a Radio Flyer to the next town.
At first I thought these might be a little too snug, but they've seemed to have loosened up a bit as I wear them. I have bigger thighs, so they're a little snug for me there, but overall very slim fitting and comfortable. I normally wear a 35/36 waist and these seem to be spot on there. Plus there is Velcro waist adjustments if the waist is slightly too loose for some. A little higher above the knee than I expected for a 12" outseam.
I exchanged from a large to medium and happy I did. I’m typically a 32-33 waist and tried the large. They were more for a 34-36 waist so sizing down was perfect. For reference I’m 6’ tall and weigh around 175 lbs. The material is lightweight and mildly stretchy. I’ve already put these bad boys to the test and they’ve held up well. The material does stretch over time so having the internal belt adjustment is a nice feature. I will also wear these for casual wear too they’re that great.
Great shorts and the 10" version are perfect for shorter people. Have the black & blue, just wish they had a khaki / brown as well.
Just bought my 3rd and 4th pair of shorts. They are my favorites. The cell phone pocket works well. The material is durable and flexible.
I’ve have 6 pair of these shorts in both 10” and 12” . Being height challenged I prefer the 10” version.
I bought my first pair on a whim 5 years ago because they were on sale. They quickly became my go to short and that same short is still in rotation today.
Living in Colorado, the weight is perfect for year round use, both on and off the bike.
