Shredly MULTISPORT Short – Apparel Review

The Shredly MULTISPORT…One Short to Rule Them All

We all have our MTB and hiking specific shorts and we often fall into the trap of spending a lot of our hard earned cash on apparel that only do one thing. Well, that doesn’t have to be the way with the Shredly MULTISPORT shorts.

Shredly are probably best known for their eye catching, women’s specific mountain bike shorts and have  nailed the balance between fashion and functionality, perfectly. We reviewed the MTB shorts and jersey some time back and also had the pleasure of speaking with Ashley Rankin, the owner/designer of Shredly.

We really like the ethos that Shredly adopt when it comes to womens active-wear and their attention to detail and effort they go to to create very well-thought out, functional and great fitting clothing. You can have highly functional clothing but you can also make sure you have some fun at the same time, and Shredly certainly know how to do fun.

First Impressions

We may of said this before, but we’ll say it again. When you discover Shredly for the fist time, be prepared for a WOW moment. The creative patterns and colours are a hell of a lot of fun and the attention to detail and construction are of the highest quality. You’ll notice this once you get a pair in your hands.

You know that moment when you touch and hold something and you instantly get that feedback that just shouts quality. Well, Shredly have done it again with their womens MULTISPORT shorts.

Features & Fit

The MULTISPORT short is a one short to rule them all, no matter what you’re doing. Originally inspired by mountain biking but designed for more, the MULTI-SPORT short features everything needed to move comfortably on and off the trail.

The shorts feature a low-rise fit with a flattering cut paired with quick-drying, lightweight and durable slightly stretch fabric. The length falls just above the knee for that goldilocks length. The fabrics used and the level of stretch are the reason why the MULTISPORT shorts are so adaptbile for so many types of activities.

  • Relaxed but flattering fit
  • Lightweight but durable and slightly stretchy fabric
  • Contoured waistband for extended coverage
  • Gusseted crotch for ease of movement and extra comfort
  • Side pocket to stash your essentials
  • Length falls just above the knee
  • Chamois liner sold separately

Out On The Trails

Well this is where it’s all about. Cycling? Hiking? Golfing? Camping? Yoga? Climbing? SUP? You name it, this short can handle it. You’ll even find yourself coming up with excuses as to why you wear this short…allthetime!

Hiking in the MULTIPOSRT shorts was a breeze and they performed like any good pair of hiking shorts should. The stretch fabric provided a lot of freedom when needing to climb up and over obstacles and the lightweight breathable materials kept the tester cool throughout the day.

The shorts also feature a good sized side button pocket which is plenty large enough to store your phone or snacks. On one of the test days we got caught in a small downpour, which was perfect for testing out drying time. Due to their breathability and non lined inner, they dried out very quickly as we moved along.

On the bike the MULTISPORT shorts performed as good as any other MTB shorts. The slightly stretch fabric provided extra movement especially when hike-a-biking up steeper terrain and the cut also provides relief for those with larger legs, yet still maintains a flattering style with no sacrifice to functionality.

The leg length falls just above the knee, which means they work well with knee pads and the large waistband provided lots of comfort and even helped soak up excess lower back sweat. Sounds horrible but we all know what that’s like. You’ll be thanking Shredly for that little feature.

Summary

We often talk about the goldilocks fit. Not too tight, not too baggy, not too long, not too short. Just the right amount of pockets, function and style….yada, yada, yada. The Shredly MULTISPORT shorts may just be that perfect bowl of porridge you’ve been looking for.

The MULTISPORT shorts seem to tick all the boxes for that one pair of go to shorts in your wardrobe. The one pair that you can simply pull on and forget about. The one pair you can, at a drop of a hat go hiking for the weekend or riding to the top of a mountain and barrel back down again. The one short to rule them all!

Originally from Wales but now living in Sydney. I grew up in the city but always loved to be outdoors. Having such great weather here in Australia allows me to discover and explore this amazing country. there is so much to see.
A love for both mountain biking and hiking has grown over the years and I will be out most weekends heading into the mountains with my tent or hitting the MTB trails around Sydney or further afield.

  • With so many hydration gels, tabs and powders out there, it can be a little bewildering which ones to choose. We all have our favourites and over the years we tend to stick with what we know, so when we discover a new brand, we’re a little reluctant at first to go and spend our hard earned money on something that we don’t know will work for us, but after reading about @hdxmix story and the founder behind it, we must admit, we got very interested, indeed. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
