Why We Like The Ether Short

The Zoic Men's Ether Short is the short for trail riders and weekend warriors alike. Its stretchy, ultra-tough fabric, a variety of easily accessible pockets, and built-in ventilation make it an ideal option for folks who get after it out there. DuraFlex fabric not only conforms to our every movement while we're sending natural hits and railing around berms, but it's also incredibly resilient against abrasion. Air Flow mesh panels sit below the rear waistband and down the legs, actively cooling our bodies as we rush down the mountain.

My best work shorts

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

My current Ether shorts are size Large and have an inseam length of 11"-12". Over the years I have gone up to a Mens 38 waist, down to a 34. The sweet spot is Mens 36" I am a Carpenter and have 3 pair I have rotated for work over the past 5-6 years, wearing them 75% of the work days. These are virtually indestructible! Only one pair has retained a dime sized stain, none have fabric runs, and all the zippers work! They are lightweight and durable and perfect for residential light construction. They might be good for mountain biking too. Also, an iphone 13 with an otterbox fits nicely in the leg pocket of this Ether model, with easy access if you don't have thick gloves on. I am unsure if the other Ether styles have smaller leg pocket openings depending on the inseam length.
