Favorite Trail Short

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I have three other shorts that I used to rotate pretty regularly. Once I came across these all of my other shorts suddenly found themselves never getting used. The name describes these perfectly, better than naked because they are light enough, stretch in the right places so that you don't even notice they are there. But even BETTER than naked because they have pockets for gels and car key, and protect your nether regions from getting scratched up from branches and such. The liner brief is super comfy and provides good support. Best of all they don't stink. I can get away with not washing these for a week, even when hitting the trail five days straight, so long as I hang them up to air out after. I am an avid trail runner, and will wear these for every run from a 5k to an ultra.
