I have never liked the longer-cut MTB shorts. The Haskell 8" fit (me) perfectly. More like a traditional pair of shorts in the way they fit around the waist, and the shorter length is my preference so I'm stoked with this product. Stretchiness is a sweet touch. Two rides with these shorts and I scraped them on a log and a rock (including a little bloodshed...**** happens). They're bomb proof. Looking forward to another pair in a different color. Oh, you can even wear them when your not riding on the trail and they look great!
Best shorts to walk the earth
I want to clarify that I actually don't own these shorts yet... But my order is on the way. I needed to borrow a pair of shorts while filming in the Sierras, and my friend made the mistake of lending me his Haskell's. They were so comfortable that I refused to take them off for an entire week in the case that he would want them back. When I finally returned them, I made take a whiff and was expecting him to maybe gag a bit. Instead, he described a hint of lavender, probably from the detergent he had used a week prior. These shorts are invincible and I can't wait for mine.
Enjoying these shorts
I’ve been sporting these fairly consistently since they arrived. Very comfortable- Very well made. Highly recommend!
