The Recon Shorts V2
The first version of these shorts had rave reviews from our customers, here are a few:
“Perfect fit and really comfy. Used them for training and in the gym and the stretch helped so much.” J Spooner
“Awesome shorts. Just waiting on a restock of the grey and I’ll get those as well.” – Jason New
“Amazing! Great for training or a match. Exactly what I’m looking for. Awesome!” Kieran Caulfield
So, how did we make the V2 better?
The Recon Shorts V2 is constructed from a fabric called Micro Stretch. It’s a super soft, durable, lightweight polyester fabric with a small % of stretch fabric which gives it non-rip and 4-way stretch characteristics.
The fabric is super light, you’ll notice as soon as you put them on.
Most Rugby shorts follow a standard shape and seams. No brand has really thought about re-drawing the lines with Rugby shorts and that’s why we used an outside design company to come in and aid us with a re-design of the Rugby shorts.
What did we do?
We re-drew the seams on the shorts to a shape we thought would be more comfortable and stylish. We used flatlock seams in areas that are most prone to tears to ensure they the shorts are durable. Our stretch panels are also strategically placed so that you have complete freedom of movement with superior comfort.
We’ve also taken on board feedback from the V1 shorts. Here’s a customer review:
“Great design, nice material, amazing fit. However, would like gym shorts with pockets.” Kay Scott
Pockets on Rugby shorts is tricky. Firstly, you don’t have much room or fabric to play with and secondly, pockets without zips are useless when it comes to activity. Your things will just fall out.
We wanted to ensure we had at least 1 zipper pocket which we have custom designed from scratch.
The custom branded zipper is heat treated and concealed, this means it’s flush with the fabric of the garment and the zipper mouth is concealed so that it’s safe when you’re training or running. It also means the zipper pocket is waterproof which gives you peace of mind when storing your things in there during the rainy days.
The zipper also adds style and a unique look to the shorts not seen by other brands.
It’s taken us nearly 1 year to re-design and develop these shorts and we’re confident they’ll be the best Rugby shorts you own.
