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 love my original Haskell shorts, but these are even better. The new fabric is lightweight, cool, comfortable and stylish, with just the right amount of stretch. These things are tailored to perfection, and appear durable enough to stand up to the test of time. Bravo Kitsbow! I absolutely love all of your stuff.
I have a bunch of other great riding shorts but these are my go to shorts now. Light weight, breathable, great fit and super comfortable. Nice little upgrades from previous seasons like the new buckle.
I put these shorts on without realizing how much lighter they are than the Haskell Short V2. I immediately noticed the waist mechanism was improved from the Haskell V2 (no more pants tent!), it appears Kitsbow rotated the button 90* and moved it over slightly. Attention to detail +1! The fit on the waist was slightly larger than expected, and I had to size down from a 30 to a 29. I expect the 29 will relax a little bit, given the material, and end up as a perfect fit. These shorts still include plenty of pocket capacity, allowing me to carry my phone, keys and wallet with room to spare. Looking forward to warmer weather to really put this 'lightweight' version to the test.
