What do I think? These shorts are really great, simply put. Even though they are thin in terms of a typical “WOD” style short, they have held up extremely well. The colors and styles aren’t full of crazy colors and graphics. I wasn’t sure if they were going to have a great fit, but I was please with both the fit in the waist and the length. In a time when it seems CrossFit and workout shorts keep getting shorter and shorter, it was nice to find a company that made shorts with a more regular cut in terms of length. The only drawback was with the company being located in Australia the shipping time was lengthy.
Why do you need it when should you use it? I used these for every type of workout you would usually do in CrossFit gym and all throughout the Open. The “SquatProof” material moves well and is extremely breathable while remaining strong and flexible.
How do you get it? Being a company from overseas, the only way that I have found to get these if from the Flexion site. The pair I train in retails for $60.
