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.
I'm loving these shorts. I'm 5' 10" 185 pounds and ordered the size 33 waist. They fall to just above my knee cap. They do not come with a padded liner, so you'll have to buy that separately. This past weekend I rode in them Saturday, camped that night, and rode hard again Sunday and the still looked fresh. In fact, at the end of the ride Saturday, a ride that involved seven creek crossings, one of the girls asked how I had time to change already, not realizing I had been wearing the Kitsbow khaki shorts the whole ride. They are not too hot on long brutal climbs and don't get caught on the seat on gnarly descents, overall just a great pair of shorts. My only complaint about kitsbow is they need to have more products in stock in more sizes.
I had the heaver weight Haskell Shorts and loved them, so got the Lightweight ones for Summer. Great shorts! Fits great for people with big thighs. Can wear anywhere - to that Beer Garden (when we get to go to them again).
design and material use seemed super nice - but i need to swap for a smaller size.
Another winner from Kitsbow. Comfortable, durable, looks great. These have a good amount of stretch so I went down one size vs my normal size and they are fantastic.
