Mobility Maximizing Inseam (patent pending)- 4 way stretch gusseted inseam to allow maximum mobility.
Cordura Reinforced - seat and pocket facing (exposed) side seam, thigh and yoke (under).
Stash Pocket - small 5th pocket under PC patch
Side Panels - for extra durability and grip tape resistance
GO ONE SIZE UP IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHAT SIZE TO GET OR YOU WEAR IMPACT SHORTS UNDERNEATH!
Common Sense - Skating with phones, keys and other hard objects in pockets will cause rapid wear from grip tape and pavement. When you start a session, empty your pockets! While these are designed with skating in mind, no refunds or exchanges will be made for gear that is damaged from doing so (just like your skateboard), they were not designed to be wear proof and there is no guarantee against crashes resulting in holes. They are designed with reinforcement so that crashes resulting in holes wont imediatly get down to your skin, but with certain variables like speed, weight, type of crash and what you crash on, theres just nothing you can do about it, that's life. Anything determined to be a manufacturer defect will be addressed differently.

I had the V1 version for 4 years and they are still good to go. Just got another pair of the most recent V3 and super stoked. Some small but important changes like being made even tougher material. Also an even bigger stretchable inseam on the crotch so you get get down low and squat when sliding and riding crouched. Before I had my first pair I'd go through a few pairs of regular shorts a summer, since 2011 I've only had these.

These shorts are amazing. There Super durable and have held up to crashes that destroyed other shorts in the past. My only complaint is the siding runs small. I would recommend crash shorts to anyone just get a size bigger then you think.

These shorts feel like you can do anything in them, you can move freely and they're really comfy too. I really like this product.

These shorts could not be more perfect. I feel that they are very true to size with a nice roomy fit that I love for skating; I don't ever feel restricted or notice them. My waist measures 28", but I wear a sweet little Depends style tailbone protector, so the size 30 fits perfectly and probably makes them a bit more baggy, like I prefer. I haven't crashed in them yet (knock on wood), but you can just tell that the Cordura is super burley, as is the rest of the material. I can't imagine not owning these now and will be sad when I gets cold enough that I have to start wearing pants again to skate.

I got the shorts and tried them on, they are a little small... I wore them for a little while inside and they stretched a little, but they were still small. I came back to the site to check the return policy and noticed you cant returned open packages. I was planning on calling, but then I destroyed that chance by accidentally breaking the button off. The shorts felt strong and well made (other than the button), but now i have to buy another pair in order to find out if they really are.
