  • TWO-WAY DRAWSTRING: VELCRO-free constructions includes a unique two-way drawstring system which you can lace up on the inside or the out.
  • HYBRID WAISTBAND: This proprietary waistband stretches up to four inches in circumference for a perfect, no-cinch, no-scrunch fit. Clean lines. Superior comfort.
  • FABRIC OF THE FUTURE: Morphs and stretches with your every movement. From deep squats to box jumps and everything in between, the fabric technology that goes into these shorts provides you with a quick-drying and moisture-wicking experience that performs well on land and sea.
  • ZIPPER SIDE POCKETS: Left and right angled zipper pockets are optimally placed at the upper side seams of each leg to suppress the movement of any stowed items while running, falling or awkwardly hanging upside down. Convenient cord access makes either pocket perfect for your phone or MP3 player.
  • DURABLE DRAWSTRING: Lots of care went into the non-welded grommets, ensuring the drawstring can never pop out, no matter how many times you lace ‘em up.
  • PERFECT LENGTH AND FIT: Consult the size chart below! Trust us, get out that tape measurer and get your dimensions, because Hylete has taken incredible care to make a pair JUST FOR YOU. And if that’s not enough, you can even choose your personal preference for above the knee or below. Note: Not available in all colors and sizes at this time. 
  • HYLETE 2-YEAR GUARANTEE: HYLETE promises to create the best apparel and gear possible. Your cross-training shorts are guaranteed to survive your most rigorous training for 2 YEARS.
