Outside Buyers Guide: Sandia & Wild Rye Shorts

Outside Buyers Guide: Sandia & Wild Rye Shorts

May 06, 2019

Outside Magazine is loving our Sandia Adventure Shirt and The Freel, our staple shorts.

 

 

The Outside Spring Buyer's Guide is the holy grail of summer adventure gear. 

They test SO much gear. Landing not one but two of our favorite pieces in this spring's issue is some seriously solid reinforcement that we nailed these pieces. Here's what they have to say: 

The Sandia Jersey & Adventure Shirt

"Thanks to Wild Rye the benchmark for bike jerseys has been elevated. We love the Sandia's long sleeves, which protected our skin on long days in the full sun and when we inevitably found ourselves crashing down a rocky mountainside" - Outside Magazine

Other features to love:
  • No special care necessary—ride, wash, dry, repeat.
  • UPF 50
  • Breathable
  • Relaxed yet fitted look. 

 

The Whitney Short (AKA the Freel)

Wild Rye nailed the stretchy-durable balance here: the Whitney [Freel] moves just right in the saddle but the fabric isn't so thin that an errant piñon will shred it.  Water repellency kept us dry in brief showers." - Outside Magazine

Other features to love:
  • Pockets, pockets, pockets. You can fit a multi-tool, cell phone AND a snack comfortably in these shorts. 
  • Durable, abrasion resistant nylon
  • UPF 50
  • Designed with a fabric and fit that allow mobility without having to roundup sizes.
