Longer Ribbed Flyte Shorts
Life requires stretch and flexibility. And stretch is best achieved with a rib knit, which can contract and form to the body, but then easily releases when necessary. Better yet, this new performance and seamless rib is also designed to move sweat, and release it on the fabric's surface, so you can stay as dry and comfortable as possible. With a high, but not-too-tight rise, these are the classic, go-with-anything bottoms that can hike, walk, run, or rest - you decide.
I brought these shorts after hearing good things about the Flyte shorts, and was glad that these were available in size XS, unlike the regular Flyte shorts. However, when I received them, I was disappointed in both the material and the sizing. The material was very thick and unnecessarily thick for a pair of shorts - and material felt like it would not be comfortable on a warm day or with sweat. Additionally, the sizing of these shorts runs way too big - waist wouldn't stay up on me and gapes and legs were too loose - these are supposed to be a tight pair of shorts, but were definitely not tight on me. No option to size down either since I already got the XS.
This is a luxurious thick ribbed fabric. They did feel like they would be quite warm. Not sure if they would work well for hot & humid summer weather. I was disappointed too that there wasn’t a gusset in the crotch(maybe the fabric would be too thick for one). I feel that this material would be great for full length winter tights! Please inform me if & when they are made! Sadly I returned them.
