Mission Short - Obsidian

8 reviews

    • Our Mission shorts are built using 95% recycled nylon, woven into a 4-way technical stretch fabric that is light enough to ride in and durable enough to be your daily driver.

      Our popular shorts feature a versatile style, stretch, and are ready for any adventure. Updates for 2020 include new lighter weight pocketing material, recycled nylon content fabric, and slightly more stretch than our previous version. Pair them with our recycled tech shirt for a full day of adventure or class it up with your button-down shirt. These shorts are perfect for traveling the country, shreddy dirt sessions, or obligatory Sunday yard work. Stash your valuables in the rear zippered pocket and get lost. Feel good and do good knowing that the recycled fibers used in construction reduce energy and water consumption while cutting greenhouse gasses and waste from landfills. Sewn right here in the SF Bay Area. You could wear it on your bike, Ornot.

    • Our shorts are true to size and feature a tailored fit. If your closet has mostly 32s our 32s should be perfect. Questions? Send us an email.

      + Recycled 4 way stretch 95% Nylon / 5% Elastane fabric for durability.

    Mission Shorts

    These shorts are fantastic. I’m a proponent of “fewer nicer things”, and they fit right into that ethos. Prior to purchasing these shorts, I had been wearing another Bay Area handmade cycling short. They lasted a solid 5 years, but the amount of pocket sewing and alterations made me look elsewhere for the next everyday wear. I originally ordered two pairs of these shorts, a size 30 & 32. I ended up exchanging the 32 for the 30 and couldn’t be happier. For reference, I’m 6’ 172 lbs. The inseam is nice a short, the gusset is wonderful, and they hug my quads comfortably. I prefer a tighter short and these have fit the bill. They are comfortable on the bike and appear to dry quickly. They do come with a DWR, though I’ve found it typically rubs off within a week or two — oh well! As long as they dry quickly, I’m happy Nice work, OrNot!

    Instantly my favorite pair of shorts

    I think Ornot really did something amazing with these shorts. I love how lightweight and comfortably cut they are, while still falling close to the leg. The pockets are the perfect sizes as well. They have a curious blue sheen that may be a result of the synthetic fabric. I would like to see a "darker black” color, but this is a fairly minimal critique... I wear these almost daily, and I am a big fan. Highly recommended.

    My favorite kind of casual cycling wear

    I've loved everything about these shorts so far. Material is durable enough to handle riding abuse, but definitely doesn't look too technical for wearing around town. I like the slimmer cut for staying out of the way on the bike, and cutting a slimmer silhouette off the bike. Pick up a pair, or one of each color!
