ZOIC Ether Camo Short - Men's


Ether Camo Short

Zoic's Ether line of shorts are best sellers for a reason, and the Men's unlined Ether Camo Short shows why with its blend of technical fabrics and functional storage options that ensure you're ready for whatever the trail sends your way. Made from a blend of materials that wick, ventilate, and stretch, the Ether delivers all-day comfort and incorporates a gusseted inseam that gives an extra dose of stretch for unrestricted movement and eliminates unwanted seat hang-ups./

The liner-free design means those bib shorts you've previously relegated to the closet can come out to play on trail days to provide stealthy comfort without impacting your trail-worthy style. After the ride, you can ditch the bibs and transition seamlessly to casual chats at the post-ride barbeque.

  • Ample pocket space securely stores ride essentials
  • Hook-and-loop tabs dial in the waistband's fit

New gen shorts have a bad fly zipper

I've put it through the wringer

I have been wearing these Zoic Ether shorts now for years, they are hands-down my favorite mountain biking shorts. I have had zero complaints to date. I love the length, the cut, the fit, and the hardware, as well as the variety of colors. Adjustability and a plethora of pockets put these things over the top to 5-star shorts. The few pairs that I had were getting a little worn out, so I thought I would get a few new pairs. So I recently ordered a pair in the digital camo, and noticed that the new models seem to be a little different. No carabiner in the right zip pocket to secure my keys, and they feel a little slimmer and a little shorter. Nothing that I couldn’t deal with, though. However, on the first two rides with the new shorts, the zipper on the fly just popped open arbitrarily. It zipped back up, after zipping it down and up again, but clearly there was something wrong there. I’m hoping it is an isolated incident and after I return them, I will order another pair. Until then, I am giving them two stars with the ability to bump back up to five. Edit/Update: The fly zipper on these next gen shorts is shiite. It has failed on every new pair I've bought, and they've all been returned. Zoic needs to go back to their previous zipper vendor or find something new. I've gone over to the Patagonia Dirt Roamer shorts, which are a whole new ballgame with only one zippered pocket, but I'm loving the lightweight feel.

Stole these from my husband

I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are awesome, my husband bought them for himself but I steal them from time to time because they are super comfortable and have a mega adjustable waist. The fabric is durable and soft against the skin, and the camo pattern is rad.
