Introducing the American Defender Shorts 2.0! We took our original Defender shorts and gave them a serious upgrade. They still feature the same awesome 4-way stretch, ultra-lightweight, quick-dry material that everyone loved about the first shorts, but they received the following upgrades (based on our own customer feedback!):
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 the shorts to be even more secure)
These will be your go-to shorts for the gym, beach, or sparring session!
The Patriot Edition:
This edition pays homage and respect to all the people who have served our Nation since the beginning, especially our military, firefighters, police, and first responders. Generation after generation, Americans from all walks of life have stepped up to the plate to serve. They are proud to wear that flag on their uniform, for it represents something greater than themselves. We made the flag tattered and distressed to represent the long and difficult journey the flag has taken since the birth of the Republic to modern day. Last, we hold a special place for all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while downrange or in the line of duty. We have placed a patriotic quote on the inside of the right leg that reads, “This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” -Elmer Davis.
A portion of all proceeds of these shorts will be donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation, 555 Firefighter Fitness Charity, and the C.O.P.S Charity (Concerns of Police Survivors). Learn more about their causes here.
