5 Men's Kits Tested - 2018 Summer Gear Guide
@ironxcross: The Dirt Craft have a different cut to them: both have a fitted cut; but the way the DR rides on my body vs the DC gives more of a trail/all mountain feel than the DC, despite the fact that the DR is only 1/4" longer in the inseam. They are certainly lighter and meant for all day explorations, but the fit and performance says trail/all mountain more so than the DC shorts. And yes, I wore them back to back the other day to check. That's my opinion based on testing and reviewing a LOT of different shorts (about 15 pair per year). You are completely 100% entitled to your differing opinion.

tires only is my guess. That'd be a question for Lezyne peeps.

@beeboo: I have no idea why they're so damn expensive. But following the spring gear guide win's clothing shoot, I left one with a bag of ice in it and 5 beers and and nearly 3 days later it still had mostly ice. The garage is full of gear so the car was sitting in the sun the whole time with temps in the upper 20s.

@Eatsdirt: have you actually tried any of the products we touched on? And if you have, do you have a better recommendation? Happy to hear it.

@PHeller: if you look in the photo, there's a zip tie inserted into the wiper seal to allow a drop or two of stanchion lube to get to the seals.

@JohanG, the 160 is for the charge chamber for mounting tubeless tires. You lock it closed, and when it's at 160PSI you open the switch to blast the air into the tire so the beads seat. It's pretty trick. Trek, Lezyne, and a few other companies make similar pumps.

@vinay: Your face is more exposed than you might think unless you're in a full face. And when you sweat, it runs into your eyes, right? Try applying sunscreen and then sweating heavily. Instant burning sensation in the corners of the eyes. I tried all the brands here in the USA while working on a glacier on Mt Hood and the only stuff that wouldn't sweat into my eyes was the Banana Boat Sport.

@ironxcross, no offense, but I stated that the Dirt Craft short was a good short but too XC "for my taste". That's the key phrase there. It's my personal preference. And I also stated why I prefer a longer length short. Your personal preference is obviously different. I do have a pair of Dirt Craft shorts in the closet. I use them for XC rides. By XC, I mean rides where I'm not considering protection for my knees.

I'm not certain where you're getting your information. But Patagonia isn't at all against trail access for MTB; they created their MTB clothing based on employee demand. Their head product tester-that's for all lines of product-is a former Junior MTB World champ: Walker Ferguson.
