Introducing the American Defender Shorts 2.0 (Black)!  These will be your go-to shorts for the gym, beach, or sparring session! These black workout shorts feature an awesome 4-way stretch, ultra-lightweight, quick-dry material that everyone loves and also feature the following:

  • Reduced velcro on the fly closure (it only has a small piece of velcro at the end of the closure… the rest of the fly is comprised of low-profile 4-way stretch fabric)
  • 2 Discrete zipper pockets (1 on each side) for cell phones and other valuables
  • Reduced outseam length by 1″ to ensure shorts do not go past the knee
  • Removable drawstring inside the waistband (great option for MMA, water sports, and fast moving workouts when you want these black workout shorts to be even more secure)

Product Specifications: 

  • Lightweight, Quick-Dry, moisture wick 4-way stretch technology
  • 9" Inseam on Size 34
  • Low-profile zipper pocket on both sides, perfect for cell phone and other belongings
  • 92% Polyester, 8% Spandex for maximum mobility
  • 4-way stretch reinforced spandex crotch panel
  • 3-inch slits on each side
  • Low-profile velcro closure with removable inner drawstring (we included the optional drawstring because we know some people like that feature)
  • 100% sublimation printing to ensure longevity
  • Our men's black board shorts fit true to size- We recommend ordering what you would normally wear in jean sizes. If you are on the fence between two sizes, we recommend going down to the smaller size.

COMFORT IN MOTION

Our shorts feature a lightweight, quick dry material that is perfect for your workout, sparring session, or a day at the beach. With a length that is cut above the knee and with 3-inch slits on each side, you will have maximum mobility for whatever the day throws at you. We also implemented a spandex crotch panel to make sure the boys stay comfortable

DISCREET STORAGE

Our shorts feature 2 discreet zipper pockets on each side, which are perfect for securely storing your wallet, phone, and other valuables.

VERSATILE CLOSURE

Our shorts come with a removable inner drawstring and an adjustable, low-profile Velcro closure, which can be tightened/loosened based on the intensity of the activity (i.e. Box jumps, wakeboarding, sparring, etc.).

Measure around the widest area of the thigh.

Measure around the largest area of your hips, encapsulating the roundest part of your gluteus.

Wrap the measuring tape around the widest point of the chest starting at the front and center of your torso.

Chest Measurement:

Wrap the measuring tape around the ribcage just below the bust starting at the front and center of your torso.

FIT GUIDELINES:

Every bra serves a different purpose for different activities and we recommend referencing each specific bra product description to determine the best bra for your body and sport. Our bras should generally fit snug. Wearing the bras too loose will not likely provide adequate support.

***Please note, a majority of our sports bras are medium support and medium coverage. If you are looking for the highest impact support that we offer; check out the X-Factor, Intensity or Moxie Sports Bra!
