These shorts look like real heavy-hitters but they are light, airy and enable a full range of unrestricted movement.
The most noticeable thing about them is the airﬂow while on the move. The large mesh sections at the front keep your legs nice and cool while the nylon around the sides and seating area will withstand more than a slide across rough ground.
On the downside, we’d have preferred to see more waist adjustment or at least a ratchet fastener at the front and at least one pocket would be handy. A zipped one would be even better.
