Workotu shorts

 Rated 5.0 stars

From Bobby

Very flexable, great from trail running to lifting.

Nice PT Shorts

 Rated 4.0 stars

From Danny T

from Reno, NV

Comfortable short for fitness. I purchased as a running short and was sort of disappointed they had no traditional liner. Without the liner the short sort of rides, if you know what I mean. As far as completing a CROSSFIT style workout and cutting the grass this short excels. Constructed well (stitching and material) I expect the short to last.

Almost like nothing is there

From Running Archer

Wanted to try give some new shorts a try and these were it. They were a great choice at that, very light and very comfortable. I should have gotten a size smaller, but my fault for not checking the sizing chart. CHECK THE SIZING CHART PEOPLE! I'm too stubborn to return, so I'll know better for the next pair.

These are the best all around shorts eve

I bought these for all around wear around the house and for walking. They serve the purposes very well. They are the most well made products I have ever owned with extra stitching and reinforced seams. I liked them so much, I went back and bought more.

Great shorts

From Pappylee

from Downey, CA

I've used shorts from other companies. These Recon shorts are by far the best I've used. I've put them through alot in a short amount of time to see if the price was worth it (mud, walls, hiking). You get what you pay for. These are durable good looking shorts.

sharp looking shorts

From CK

Bought these for my husband as work out shorts, but I misunderstood the item description. So he uses them to lounge around in around the house.
I thought there was a mesh insert (i.e. mesh underwear lining), but the mesh is an insert on the side. Silly me.
Since he doesn't wear undies when he works out, these have been regulated to being just another pair of lounge wear shorts.
Other than that glitch, they are perfect!

I am very athletic and I am training for a triathlon. I also will be attending the Tough Mudder in St. Louis in September. Considering using the 511 product for this event. I thought I was getting the free 511 ballcap with this order. My mistake if there was a misunderstanding with this.
