The Haskell is our feature-rich everyday short that’s anything but ordinary. The Lightweight Haskell Short is designed with hot days in mind without sacrificing function. These purpose-built shorts feature five pockets, a reflective stripe across the rear, lightweight multi-stretch fabric, and the tailored fit you've come to love from Kitsbow.
The Lightweight Haskell Short is our answer to the perfect short that can be worn for Bike and Life. This short has articulated knees, made for comfort on the bike; and is designed to be equally comfortable for whatever journey the day may have in store for you.
One of the best thing about my other Kitsbow shorts, the durability, also makes them warmer on hot days than I'd like. These shorts have that solved!! They have the amazing Kitsbow tailoring of the other models, with a super airy material that breathes and dries quick. I have a solution for hot and long rides now.
Despite owning several pairs of technical shorts, some cutoffs, my beloved jorts, and bibs, I find myself using the Haskell Lights time and time again. They're stretchy, light, breathable, and perfect for the coastal climate I usually train in. My only gripe is that they are quite long. At 5'7", I found them about 2.25" below my knees. I was able to alter them slightly so they don't catch on my knees when pedaling hard. Typical Kitsbow fit and finish is evident - quality stitching and buttons, nice details (including deep pockets nd a zip pocket), and a perfect fit through the seat.
The fit and finish is excellent as you would expect. It didn't take long for me to realize I no longer needed the other shorts in my closet.
I have the standards also. The lightweights are great in hot weather.
Kitsbow Nailed the perfect short w this one.. Rides great— no pulling , no catching , and it’s beyond comfortable .. I wear these all the time , hike / bike/ beers... Perfect short.. I’m 6’ 180, the L is spot on .
