My shorts came today! They are really nice. I ordered the black pinstripe Hornet shorts and the Fatigue Hornet shorts. They sent a black Ride short instead. I sent them back and Nate is going to send me the Grey pinstipe Hornet shorts and I am going to order the Black pinstripe Hornet shorts tonight. Confusing, I know. But, he said he will send me something to make up for it. I love surprises! Their CS is really good. I have been wearing the fatigue Hornets all day today. They are super comfy, and they are just a tiny bit big. But they have size adjusters on the side, so I tightened them up a little and I have been wearing them without a belt. I actually prefer them a little big with the option to use the adjusters or a belt, so for me the are a perfect fit. The padded inner short fits really good. They don't make you feel like you need to pull them out of your crack all time. In fact you forget they are there. And they clip in with a button on each side, so you don't have to cut them out. the inner shorts are made of a mesh type material so they shouldn't get to hot. The outer short material is really tough, but not to thin and not to thick. There are three pockets in the front on each side, none in the back. So, 6 pockets total. There are two regular pant style pockets. Below that, another inner medium sized pocket on each side, and on top of those there is a smaller media pocet, one on each size. The medium and media pockets use the same flap and button to close them. And the medium size pockets also have velcro. The media pockets are big enough for my Iphone in one side and my wallet in the other side. Length wise they are about 3 inches below the knee cap, which is perfect for me. And, above the knee there are silky soft inner panels so your knees don't get rubbed raw while riding. I really can't think of anything I would change about them. Accept they are so nice, I don't think I'll wear them to ride my bike for awhile. I'll wear my Oakleys and Royals to ride and use these for casual shorts. I like how I'll be able to clip the inner padded shorts into other shorts, very versatile.
So, you know what they say about any company: Good customer service, quality product and cheap price. Pick two of the three, because no company can do all three. Jett Gear chose great CS and a top quality product, and I prefer it that way. Jett Gear reminds me of Apple in that way. You get what you pay for and in this case you get a great pair of comfy shorts that will last a long time and look good doing it.

Strengths: The weight of the fabric is perfect.
Chamois is great and is removable.
They look cool!
Just picked up a pair of the Jett Hornet shorts and all I can say is buy them! They are well worth it. They look good, feel good, and ride great. They blow away both my Nema's and my Oakley's.
The weight of the fabric is perfect. My Nema's and Oakley's feel really bulky compared to the Hornets.
I really like removable chamois. I wasn't sure about it at first but while riding I haven't had any moving around or riding up of the chamois....it stayed right were it was supposed to be. The best part about the removable system is after a ride you can un-clip the chamois and wear the shorts around like normal shorts.
Bottom line....best pair of shorts I have owned. I look forward to trying out the Raptors next.

I was just wondering what anyone who has used either of these shorts has to say about them, as I'm about to order one of these. My main concern is the length as I like my riding shorts to fall below the knee. So far from what I can tell, the Jett Hornet shorts get great reviews and I can get them on ... Read More »
I have a two small (one is 6" and the other 2" in diameter) forming and I want them OUT. I'm thinking about DIY, but I also don't want to get stung.
Any advice? Maybe a good San Jose service and price?
Thanks!Read More »
