We created the American Defender 2.0 Shorts (Thin Blue Line Edition) as an add-on to our Honor the Fallen performance shirt. Show your support for our police officers who put themselves in harms way to ensure we stay safe. Recent events are a solemn reminder to us all in regards to the dangers our police officers can face on any given day. We hold a special place for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.  A portion of every sale will be donated to our partner charity, Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.), whose function is to lend support to the families of fallen police officers, including academic scholarships for their children, counseling services, and so much more. You can learn more about their honorable cause here.

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!

    I wear a size 32 in most major clothing brands. These are true to the sizing chart. I bought these to surf with in Hawaii. They feel great. Light weight. Amazing quality and good stitching. I love the zipper pockets because I can take my waterproof phone out on the surf board with me and not worry about losing it. I am probably going to order a second pair. To compare with other board shorts, in my opinion they are right up there with Fox Racing and Affliction brands. Thank you for making these, as I am all about supporting the thin blue line.

    Great shorts for mud runs. Ran a Spartan race and these shed the water and mud easily. Well done.

    These shorts are fantastic ! I wore them for the first time this weekend and did everything from 1RM back squats to running 1 mile and they move with you during your activity. The only reason why I didnt give 5 stars is because I’d like an additional storage pocket on the other side of shorts.

    I recently purchased these for my husband. He is a deputy sheriff and is training to compete in our local police and fire games. He says these shorts are amazing. The fit is perfect and they stretch in all of the right places while training. Will absolutely recommend these for anyone!

    Shorts are stylish and seem to be well constructed. I like the material and side zipper pocket. My only complaint is the length. If they were 1-2″ longer, I wouldn’t hesitate buying additional pairs.

      We have shortened these so they do not interfere with running or jumping! We are glad you like all other aspects!

    These are the shorts that introduced me to Born Primitive I’m a Police Officer 2016 was a tough year for officers. I am very grateful for a company that supports our officers and military. These shorts are awesome they feel great are very light and true to size. I will definitely be buying more of their shorts.

    I LOVED how these looked online. I bought them and when they arrived I was a little disappointed. The material is really thin and surprisingly even though they advertise that these are for the beach etc, there is NO inner liner. So when my husband wears them to swim they stick and you basically see his entire anatomy form through the shorts. Overall they look great and stand out. I just wish I had known they have no inner liner like most water shorts do.

      :

      You can wear boxers or compressions when you swim to prevent this issue. These are NOT swim trunks so we do not design them as swim trunks. They just can be worn to swim. Also, they are not a cheap material but yes they are a thin material- this is to ensure quick-drying and to make them the most comfortable for hitting a hard work out. No one wants to be weighed down by chunky WOD Shorts. We also have a return policy on our website so if you do not like a product, it can easily be returned! http://www.bornprimitive.com/returns

    Love the shorts, I wear a 33 and I got the 34 and they were too big. Sent them back and got a 32. Returning them was very no hassle. Awesome company.
