Strengths:    Durable, high quality stiching, functional zippers, inner shorts, ventilation.

Weaknesses:    A little over priced but well worth it for the quality.

Bottom Line:   
Raptor shorts are the best mtb shorts I've owned. Jett produces high quality items that are durable and long lasting. The stitching is great, the material is strong and the inner shorts fit great.

Date Reviewed: November 8, 2011

Strengths:    good fit, comfortable, tough and durable

Weaknesses:    none so far

Bottom Line:   
Best shorts I own. Got them on chainlove once and can;t find them again or I'd own more. They hold up well and fit well. Other shorts I've had are cut a little funny or are made crappy and start falling apart right away. These things are bulletproof and have outlasted shorts that I paid a lot more for. Get em if you can find em.

Date Reviewed: May 15, 2010

Strengths:    Lightweight, smooth material
Vents


Weaknesses:    Doesn't pedal the bike

Bottom Line:   
Best shorts I own.
Comfy, smooth material doesn't get hung up on seat or pads. Front and rear vents cool for summer rides. Good length. Liner also excellent. Two open and two zippered pockets. Attention to detail- designed by riders. Expensive, but worth it.
Sizing: I take a 33 in Levi's jeans, and a 34 in Fox shorts, but a 32 here.

Date Reviewed: October 6, 2009

Strengths:    Solid construction. Have fended off rocks and cactus needles with no tears yet. Comfortable when walking, sitting, riding, etc. I really like the front and rear zippered vents. Sweet embroidered jett logo. Well made. Comfortable. Breathable. Cool. Very adjustable fit.

Weaknesses:    The chamois is a tad loose in the seat, but good and snug at the waist and thighs so it stays in place just fine.

Bottom Line:   
Almost no product is worth full price. If you can find these shorts on sale, you will be more than satisfied. I drop them 1 chili on value if you have to pay MSRP.

Submitted by frontrangedirt a Racer from Denver, Colorado, USA

Date Reviewed: July 15, 2008

Strengths:    Versatility and comfort. This short is by far, the most comfortable short on the market. It is def a high end short, and i paid for that. $120 bucks... but well worth it. It has been very breathable, the vents work great, and the best thing about this short is the thigh panels, no seams on your thigh = no annoying rubbing after 1 hr of riding! super sweet!

Weaknesses:    chamois is good, but i like a tighter fit sometimes... it is removeable as well.

Bottom Line:   
It is the most comfortable baggy short i've yet purchased, Its hard to suck up the $120 price, but well worth it after one ride... then ride them again, and again, and i've forgotten about the price...

Osprey Packs Raptor 10 Hydration 2012 Close Out

In doing some quick research, the Osprey Raptor 10 looks like the pack for me. The 2013 model has had some upgrades to the 2012 model. But REI is having a closeout of the 2012 for $65. That's almost half off compared to the new model. Is the new model that much better? For $65 is the 2012 kind of st ... Read More »

New Raptor 14 Osprey

I pm'd this link to Jenson and got the new 2013 Madcap red Raptor 14. About half off. Before I ordered it, I compared the Raptor 14 to the new Mule NV at REI and thought this was much nicer than the Mule. A bit lighter too.

2013 Camelbak MULE NV vs 2013 Osprey Raptor 14

I am trying to decide between a 2013 Camelbak MULE NV and a 2013 Osprey Raptor 14. I like the zipper on the hipbelt pockets and the two side pockets on the Raptor. But I prefer the MULE's rain cover over the Raptor's tool pouch. I also like the MULE's D-Fit suspension. I guess I will have to try ... Read More »
