Fox Racing Ranger Bike Short - Men's - 2009 BCS
The Menís Ranger Bike Short has been a top seller in the Fox Racing line, and now it has a few new upgrades. Inner thigh zip vents help you stay cool on hot summer rides without freezing you in the fall. Fox Racing added an adjustable waist for a better fit, and front hand pockets for chill style. You also get an audio interface that includes a pocket for your MP3 player, so you always have tunes when you need extra inspiration.

Love this pair of shorts. Chamois is very comfortable for 2+ hour rides. Only thing is the inner short is not removable, but other than that you can not go wrong here! I wear a 36 and they feel true to size. There are ample pockets with 1 secure zipper one on the right and a Velcro flap on the left.
Do this have chamois? And are they rather past knee length?

These are a nice-looking pair of baggy bike shorts. I've been using them on my commute and now no longer look like a spandex freak. The material feels nice and cool, and the chamois is comfy. Since there are no belt loops, though, I'd err on the side of getting it a little small. I normally wear a 34, but I had to exchange it for a 32, which fit perfectly once I cinched up the adjustment straps a bit. The lining is not removable, but even so, if you can score these on sale they're definitely worth it!

Wasn't a fan of the integrated chamois (not sure why anyone would make an integrated chamois, it's never going to fit as well as a separate liner, I would have cut it out and used my own liners if I kept them) and the fabric seems a little on the flimsy side (but might be nice for hot summer days). I opted for the Jett Gear shorts instead and still prefer the Oakleys I've had the last couple years.
whats the inseam on these shorts?

In a size 32 the outseam is 25.5 inches, +/- .5 inches in either direction per size up or down.

I have read reviews that the chamois is removable and also some reviews said that it was not removable. All I know is that the one that I bought (about 2 weeks ago) is NOT removable. I'm not saying that is a bad thing, I bought them for biking anyways.
I like all the pockets, I like the zipper one more than the velcro, its much easier to open and close while riding.
The only gripe/complaint I have is while i wear them it feels like my crack is showing. I don't think it is very much if at all, but It feels a little breezy. So if you are paranoid about that stuff then you may not like them.
Overall, they are comfortable, look and feel great. I can't talk about the durability yet since I have only wore them a few times.

THese shorts have a good chamois that isnt too bulky and the light material drys of easily. The velcro tightening straps work very well. while it may seem like the length is too long, when you sit on a bike with your knee bent its perfect. really good looking shorts too.
2nd Pair . . . Not the Same Shorts?
July 12, 2010
Ok so I liked by first pair of Rangers so much I picked up a second pair when they came around on CL. Woo right? My first pair was all-black so I decided to wild out and get the brown hounds tooth this time. Baller.
When I got these shorts though, I noticed something odd. The new pair (brown) had the integrated liner spoken of previously. So I have a black pair with a full-coverage removable liner and a brown pair with an integrated liner. So the browns aren't as good as the blacks, but they are more than adequate I suppose.
Other than that they are everything I love about the first pair. Comfy chamois, good fit (though the integrated liner makes the shorts ride a little lower), and durable construction.

I like the chamois thickness; just enough but not so much to be like wearing a diaper.
These are cut on the long side, but the fabric is very light so they don't bother your knees.

This is my first cycling-specific short, before this it was all commando in basketball shorts, and my boys are so glad for the upgrade. As other reviewers have stated, no thigh vents. What they have omitted to tell you (and Backcountry has omitted to say) is that the chamois is 100% removable. Little snap on loops hold it in place during shipping/laundry, but the thing definitely comes out.
Word to the wise- chamois/liner are see through . . . be careful out there kids.
All in all, shorts seem to be good quality, reasonable degree of baggy, and were a steal. Worth it!
Worth it for the price

Mine didn't come with inner thigh vents. I had to add more velcore as after a few rides they stretched and the waist got too big. Due to this I would reccomend going a size down. I have had nothing, but great experiences with Fox until now. With these you get what you pay for and thats it. Also not having belt loops sucks. Lastly, they seem to tear/rip/puncture easy as mine have developed small holes. I do use these around 5 days a week or more, and plan on buying more shorts from Fox. Next time I will throw down some extra cash and get a higher end model.

Great quality, nice length. Enough pockets. It would be nice if they had belt loops as well as the velcro waist adjustment tabs.

I found that this short is a little bit too baggy. The padding is not removable. I like the cargo pocket which has zippers on it. And also the adjustable waistband(elastic-secured with velcro) is a great feature. I like this short, perfect if it wasn't too baggy.
