It can feel restricting at times skating in normal shorts, but you don't exactly want to go out and skate in basketball shorts either. So Volcom created the Frickin Modern Stretch Short so you don't have to compromise. It's a modern fit twill short with a cotton, polyester, and elastane blend fabric that is stretchier and wicks moisture better than other shorts, so you can have that b-ball short freedom without looking like a wanksta.

slim but not too slim

These shorts are of the newer slim fitting variety. They are just slim enough that they look good but not too slim that you can't move. They also are the perfect length hitting right at or slightly above the knee. Cell phone pocket on side is stealthy. I own 2 pair now and they are sweet.

Quickly becoming my favorites

These shorts are great. I like clothing that I can climb in, and these fit the bill perfectly.
Just enough stretch and the length prevents the fabric from catching on my knee.

Super casual looking too, so you don't look so scrubby after a day at the crag.

Just the right amount of stretch

    Size Purchased: 32

I finally found a pair shorts that fit well (a bit slim but not overly so) and have the correct amount of stretch without the texture of athletic or skateboard shorts. For me, they hit right above the knee, which is perfect

Are they stretchy? How much spandex?

Hey Longboardsteve,

The material specs on this item are off. These shorts have 2% elastane to provide the "strechy-ness."

I am going to get the specs updated.
