A lightweight, incredibly versatile, 7" active short with advanced performance for training and looks that go beyond activity. One pair of shorts built for every purpose.
The Material looks great and is soft and stretchy. I avoid spandex blends because they aren’t durable and bag out after a year of regular use or if you accidentally put it in the dryer once. These are 100% polyester which is ideal as they won’t lose shape. Shorts with spandex are less durable and dry slower. I am 6’ 185 athletic, I usually wear size 31-32 waist, I wear size small in these. The waist has a lot of room, about 4-5” extra room and the crotch is baggier than it should be. The draw string is too long and doesn’t tie tight so I would not surf in these. The length is good, 4”+ above the knee. The legs are nice and slim. The material is stretchy without spandex. I stocked up on these for the gym, running, and hanging out in summer. The black color is really a really dark grey, and I wish they had a grey color instead of the grey/blue. However these are still overall a better shorter short than any other brands I’ve found due to the others all putting way to much fragile spandex in them. I stocked up on these.
I love the new fabric! Much softer and lighter. The fit is much larger than the original movement shorts though so may need to size down.
These shorts are perfect for use in the gym with their soft, non-binding material. I especially appreciate the zippered pocket. Its location near the back allows me to keep my phone with me without bulging, sagging, or getting in the way during workouts or while driving. I only wish that there were an identical pocket on the other side for my wallet.
I ordered the Boundless Shorts, and the shorts that arrived are nothing like the ones in the pictures—they're much longer, no side zipper pocket, pockets are not mesh, and they have a snap and zipper. The inseam is listed as 7", but it's 9". Scrolling down, I see the ones I have might appear, but it's crazy that the all the pics and info at the top have not been updated!
Hi Matthew, Thanks for your feedback at Western Rise and we do apologize for the confusion on the Boundless Short. To clarify, we have changed the construction of the Boundless Short as well as the inseam length. Our newest version's inseam length has changed a bit and you may have received the old version. That being said, if you'd like us to set up an exchange for the new version, kindly email us through firstname.lastname@example.org so we can resolve this issue accordingly. Again, thanks for taking the time to review our product, and stay safe and healthy! Best,
Like the session T I got, there are some flaws apparent. Some loose threads at the crotch and inner waist band. I’ve heard the Vietnam made products are a little inferior to the items that have been switched over to Indonesia. Both of my items are from Vietnam so maybe that’s the issue. As for the product itself. It’s great. I wore it hiking (6mikes) and several mild to high intensity workouts: no stink. Very impressed by that. The zip pocket is great for your phone given its at the thigh so it doesn’t flip around on your quad with activity. Make that a staple across more products, WR, and you’ll be golden. Fit is pretty good with a Small (6ish foot and 165). Kinda wish I knew what a medium looked and felt like to compare. I could come back around and get a navy after getting the blue/grey version.
