R Vail - NH
I am an OCR athlete and I am highly active in all sorts of training regiments for races... As of now I have only worn these shorts for training... I have not yet had the opportunity to wear this brand in a race yet... But these are the Pros and Cons I see so far... Pros: The Defender series most importantly are light weight... The flexible and stretchy fabric is comfortable... They seem not to hold a lot of water weight and dry quickly... I love the multiple secure pockets... For the models I purchased I like the design/color combo... Cons: No real Cons at this point. But here are some concerns that may come to light once I get a chance to put them thru a few courses... Velcro closure doesn’t seem to have enough adjustment to cinch tight if your between sizes... Now with a little looseness in the waist band this might open possibilities of the drawstring tie getting caught on obstacles or other things when crawling, flipping, or rolling over/under/on too obstacles... Not sure this will ever happen but could be a potential... We will also see the Fabric durability over time... I have a good feeling they will hold their own... R Vail...
