The Short You've Been Waiting For
It's that time of year, when all the cool new gear that I saw in Vegas back in September starts rolling in. And one of the coolest pieces of off-road gear showed up today, the Jett Raptor short. Jett is pretty new, maybe a year or two old but they hit this one out the park. No matter what you're looking for in a baggy short, this thing has it.
The first thing I look for is an elastic back panel. With an ass like mine you need the extra stretch to keep the waist band where it should be. If a short has that, I'm pretty happy, but the Raptor keeps giving.
Jett is a small Fort Collins based brand but you can tell the stuff is designed by guys that really get out and ride. The Raptor will set the standard which all other baggies are measured.
