Mescal Ventilated Short

Fits perfectly. I love the pockets and the location of my side pocket. They stretch well and wick very well. They are so stylish that I don't need to change shorts after my ride when I grab a meal and coffee from the Old Fort Ridehouse. They are my go-to ride short now.

Just ordered another one....

Finally tried these MTB shorts after reading so many positive reviews. Manufacturing is top notch, fit is very comfortable and I basically forgot about it on my first ride. No need for any adjustments during the ride. It's on and it works as intended. Just ordered another one! The side pockets really keeps items out of the way of riding movements. My only concern is about falling on the cell phone for example. It will hurt!

Mescals FTW!

Up front, I'm a Kitsbow fanboy. 2 Icons, 3 Haskells, 1 Kitsuma, 4 Kitchels, merino socks, hat, 1 Esplanade on the way - which I'm sure will turn into 2...you get it. I dig awesome s**t and the Mescal shorts are on the same high level of fit, build and comfort of everything else I have from Kitsbow. Sure, the price is high but the Mescals are the perfect example of 'you get what you pay for''. Like my Icons these shorts will deliver in town, on the trails or anywhere they take me.
