Introducing the American Defender Shorts 2.0 Bravo (Gunmetal)! 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.

    American Defender Shorts 2.0 (Patriot Edition)

    By far some of the most comfortable gym shorts I've worn in some time. They are light weight, and breathe well, keeping the boys cool during those HIIT workouts.

    the side pockets are perfect to keep you phone out of your hands and off the gym floor, and the zipper is a great feature for those inverted push-ups and hand stands.

    Well worth the buy and again extremely comfortable.

    ***Please note, a majority of our sports bras are medium support and medium coverage. If you are looking for the highest impact support that we offer; check out the X-Factor, Intensity or Moxie Sports Bra!
