Force Short

The immovable object in this scenario will be that boulder you've been punting off of for the past millennia, and the unstoppable for is your insatiable psyche to send. You can spend every day at the base, tying your climbing shoes, sussing beta, chalking up, and attempting the climb in the La Sportiva Men's Force Short.

  • Training short suitable for climbing gyms, boulders, and crags
  • Lightweight fabric with breathable paneling for extra comfort
  • Gusseted construction ensures freedom of movement

Go down a size

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

If you're normal human shaped, go down a size. Medium was hanging off of me and had to be cinched in severely to fit. Returning for a Small instead.

Waist band is weird

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

Everything about these is great- EXCEPT the waistband. I still wear them, and they are a good summer option for staying cool . But the drawstring runs along the bottom of the elastic waist. Which means that if you tighten it up so it creates more tension than the stretchy waist band itself, the TOP of the waist band flares outwards and is loose. So it looks like you're wearing shorts a size or two too big. Sure seems like the designer never tried a pair on....

Fine, a bit oddly sized

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these as a gift, here's what he had to say- "I like these, but only because the drawstring holds them up and I don't care that the waistband isn't totally tight; despite it looking a little ridiculous it doesn't really matter and is pretty unobvious unless I'm not wearing a shirt. They're a bit long but the material is really nice. The pockets are at the side of the short which kind of keeps things out of the way but also just ends up funneling them to a more specific part of your leg. They're not perfect for me, but I do think I'll wear them for awhile."
