American Defender Shorts 2.0 (Patriot Edition)

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 Discreet 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.

    These shorts are even more awesome in person. I got these as a gift for my husband. They fit him perfectly. He loves the way they feel and they look great. He also has the thin blue line shorts and loves those as well.

    This was my first Born Primative purchase. I bought it as a gift for my husband. He was THRILLED! Aside from being good looking, they’re well made and true to size. I’m very excited to make my next purchase. Thanks!

    My friends swear by these shorts, so I finally pulled the trigger. Don’t know if I could ever go back to gym shorts. My only gripe is the “pants boner” at the crotch, but I can live with it.

    First purchase from BP and totally satisfied! These shorts are very light, stretchy, beyond comfortable to wear and look even better on than in the ad’s! I would say they are true to size, but they actually are very flexible on the sizing due to the Velcro and the tie cord. Perfect for Crossfit and Olympic lifts.
