first Ascent AR-X Shorts

I won a pair of first Ascent AR-X Shorts in the lucky-draw at the 2010 Fernkloof Trail Run.

first Ascent AR-X shorts redI 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.

Features:

  • 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.
