Haskell Short 8"


The Haskell is our everyday short that’s anything but ordinary. Hike, bike, run, and move in complete freedom, the Haskell is tailored to be comfortably fitted but not tight, with a soft but virtually indestructible stretch fabric that moves when you do, and because they are now made to order at Kitsbow in the US, you can choose between two inseam lengths: 8" or 11". Get the 11" inseam
NOTE: When you place your order today you will wait at least 5 weeks for your shorts to ship. Why? Because we make each pair of shorts to order, due to our deep commitment to waste less. We stay in touch by email, and your purchase date determines your place in line.

Made To Order, Less Waste™ simply means minimizing waste — by making only what is needed — and maximizing our flexibility to offer customers more choices, more colors, sizes and fits.

More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

Our crew often rides hard and we are here for you when things go awry. If you crash and trash your Kitsbow, get in touch with us.

If it can be repaired, we'll do that for a reasonable charge. If it can't be repaired (if you were really ripping it), we'll figure out a way to get you back on your bike wearing Kitsbow anyway. Just get in touch. The same policy applies to typical wear and tear: we'll repair it for a reasonable charge (if it can be repaired) or get you back into Kitsbow some other way if it cannot be repaired.

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.
