The Shorter Shorts - Open Sky

More thighs = more skies, or at least we like to think so. Our new and improved shorts sport a fashionable 5” inseam, and we’ve made them even better with upgraded quick-dry fabric, ultra-durable stitching, and an adjustable belt with literally 8" of stretch for any adventure. 


We don’t like to mess with perfection, so we kept the pockets the same: two hip pockets and a zippered mesh catch-all on the thigh. We like to call it the trash pocket, but you can put whatever you want in there. Gummy bears? Small rocks? It's totally up to you. Our shorts are constructed with double interlocked stitching on all seams, so they'll stand up to the toughest conditions. Guaranteed chafe-free for 4,000 miles and counting.
