I won a pair of first Ascent AR-X Shorts in the lucky-draw at the 2010 Fernkloof Trail Run.
I normally run in a pair of CAPESTORM Kinetic Shorts, which I love. These first Ascent shorts are equally as comfortable, as well as offering 2 generous zippered pockets for carrying extra goodies. The cut is also a little longer in the leg than Kinetics, which might suit those who like showing a little less leg.
They do not have the small zippered pocket in the small of the back that many shorts sport, which is great if like me you run with a hydration belt, like the Salomon Twin Belt, as the zipper tends to get pressed into your back where it chafes badly.
- 2 zippered pockets for gels etc.
- internal key pocket inside the front
- elasticized draw-cord
- reflective strips for increased visibility
- built-in lining
The light Microtex fabric means the shorts weigh in at around 115g. They come in sizes XS to XXL.
