For the light and tough Goodson Short from Flylow Gear, you get a custom MTB-ready fabric that deflects branches and dries quickly. The fabric is lightweight and breathable for long climbs, and has stretch for mobility. You'll get a mid-length 12.5-inch inseam and plenty of coverage for bombing the descent. Plus, there are zippered thigh pockets to store your phone and a low-profile, no-bulk fly with no metal hardware, just a Velcro closure.
The Goodson Short also features a streamlined, low-profile waistband that won't slip. Wear it over a chamois for the trail or on its own for a beer and a burger. It's treated with a Durable Water Repellent, so you can stay dry and comfortable no matter where you are on the trail.
