  • Reduced velcro on the fly closure (it only has a small piece of velcro at the end of the closure… the rest of the fly is comprised of low-profile 4-way stretch fabric)
  • 2 Discrete zipper pockets (1 on each side) for cell phones and other valuables
  • Reduced outseam length by 1″ to ensure shorts do not go past the knee
  • Removable drawstring inside the waistband (great option for MMA, water sports, and fast moving workouts when you want these black workout shorts to be even more secure)

Product Specifications: 

  • Lightweight, Quick-Dry, moisture wick 4-way stretch technology
  • 9" Inseam on Size 34
  • Low-profile zipper pocket on both sides, perfect for cell phone and other belongings
  • 92% Polyester, 8% Spandex for maximum mobility
  • 4-way stretch reinforced spandex crotch panel
  • 3-inch slits on each side
  • Low-profile velcro closure with removable inner drawstring (we included the optional drawstring because we know some people like that feature)
  • 100% sublimation printing to ensure longevity
  • Our men's board shorts fit true to size- We recommend ordering what you would normally wear in jean sizes. If you are on the fence between two sizes, we recommend going down to the smaller size.

R Vail - NH

I am an OCR athlete and I am highly active in all sorts of training regiments for races... As of now I have only worn these shorts for training... I have not yet had the opportunity to wear this brand in a race yet... But these are the Pros and Cons I see so far... Pros: The Defender series most importantly are light weight... The flexible and stretchy fabric is comfortable... They seem not to hold a lot of water weight and dry quickly... I love the multiple secure pockets... For the models I purchased I like the design/color combo... Cons: No real Cons at this point. But here are some concerns that may come to light once I get a chance to put them thru a few courses... Velcro closure doesn’t seem to have enough adjustment to cinch tight if your between sizes... Now with a little looseness in the waist band this might open possibilities of the drawstring tie getting caught on obstacles or other things when crawling, flipping, or rolling over/under/on too obstacles... Not sure this will ever happen but could be a potential... We will also see the Fabric durability over time... I have a good feeling they will hold their own... R Vail...

Needed to exchange a pair of shorts not once, but twice, and the process was simple and easy! Shorts are great!

Love supporting such a great company!!

New PR!

These shirts are killer. I absolutely love them. Used to purchase RedLine and since they seem to have closed—Gave Born Primitive a try. Totally worth it! Perfect amount of stretch with a smooth drawstring. They double perfectly as board or hot rubbing shirts. I swear I got a new squat PR first time wearing them.
