Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

good fit, comfortable, tough and durable

Weakness:

none so far

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.

Strength:

Lightweight, smooth material
Vents

Weakness:

Doesn't pedal the bike

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.

Strength:

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.

Weakness:

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.

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.

Strength:

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!

Weakness:

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

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...
