Gramicci Original G Short
Fabric: cotton only--the nylon ones are NOT comfortable
Price Paid: $30
The older Gramicci shorts are so comfortable that I have literally worn them out (almost 20 years of use). The 'new' ones are really bunched up along the waist and ride MUCH higher on the hips.
I pay to get the new ones modified, and then they will last another 20 years!!!!
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
While starting up the trail with a defined plan is always a good idea, you never know when you'll be struck with the spontaneous urge to cool of in the creek or climb around on a newly discovered boulder. The Gramicci Men's Rockit Dry Original G Short is perfectly suited to the unexpected adventures and experiences common to those who spend every waking moment outside. The Rockit has Gramicci's time-tested and proven Original G-Short design: an engineered gusset for complete freedom of movement and a integrated cinch nylon belt for a perfect fit. When it comes to fabric, however, the Rockit departs from the Original G-Short's cotton and instead uses lightweight nylon that dries in flash. To finish this short off, Gramicci added Never Lost pockets with extra deep bags to ensure your keys won't end up at the bottom of an alpine lake after diving in head first.
