Form Meets Function

Inspired by NATO military shorts and US Postal summer pants, we made our Union Short to be functional and durable. With an updated slim fit and new urban cycling features, including secure back pocket, deep front pockets, and reflective logo, our Union Short works on the bike and in the bar. Gusseted seat and durable 4-way stretch fabric provide hours of comfort in the saddle or sitting on the grass.

    The Union Short is one of the best pairs of riding short I have ever owned. They are super comfortable to ride in, it almost feels like you aren't wearing any shorts at all. I bought the light grey color which I have heard is extremely visible, and it goes with pretty much anything you want to wear for all you fashion forward riders out there.

    I would only make two small changes to the shorts. The first would be I wish they were just a little bitter shorter length wise, maybe just a quarter of an inch. However I would still keep the legs a little baggier just as they currently fit. I feel like it makes the shorts versatile. The only other small change I would make is to the pockets. They seem to bunch up when you don't have anything in them. In all honesty though I really had to think about what changes I could suggest because they are pretty perfect as is.

    Go out and get yourself a pair. You will wear them day and day out. :) Happy Riding

    These are really great shorts, nice fit/material/styling and stitching seems durable, I really wanted to like them, however... Be aware that the reflective logo on the back will likely peel off very quickly leaving the shorts looking less than great. Chrome even acknowledges this, basically saying the reflective material they use isn't ideal but they are forced to use it because there isn't anything better. They even said they don't warranty ANY reflective material on their products for this reason. If you can live with that I would say go ahead a get the shorts because they are otherwise great.

        I purchased a pair of Chrome shorts previously and they fit much smaller, so I was hesitant to purchase again, but these are true to size.

            I have 2 pairs of these shorts now and they are so versatile and well made. I may get one more pair, just because they are bomb.

              Comments about Union Short:

              I own several pair of the older union shorts in charcoal. I recently purchased two pair, one in brindle and one in olive. The material is unquestionably thinner than previous versions of this short, be that good or bad. The material is more of a "Prana" thickness, so if your looking for a more robust material, this isn't it.
              The fit seems the same as the older versions.
