American Defender Shorts 2.0 Bravo (OD Green)

Rated 4.8 out of 5
100 Reviews
Size

Introducing the American Defender Shorts 2.0 Bravo (OD Green)! We took our original 2.0’s and gave them a modification. The Bravo version uses a tie closure instead of the velcro closure offered in the standard 2.0. They still feature the same awesome 4-way stretch, ultra-lightweight, quick-dry material that everyone loves about the 2.0 shorts. They also have two discrete zipper pockets (1 on each side) for cell phones and other valuables. The outseam length is cut to ensure the shorts will not go below your knees so you can maximize mobility and functionality. These will be your go-to shorts for the gym, beach, or sparring session!

  • Lightweight, Quick-Dry, moisture wick 4-way stretch technology
  • 9 inch 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 tie closure (*NEW for this style)
  • 100% sublimation printing to ensure longevity
  • Our men's 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.

    DISCREET STORAGE

    Our shorts feature a discreet zipper pocket on each side, which is 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 or loosened based on the intensity of the activity.

    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...

    Feel and look great

    I love that they have two pockets. 4 stars in only because I haven’t had them long enough to see how they last

    Great shorts

    Love these for just about everything. They are light weight and allow you to move but at the same time have pockets to wear to other functions.
