Review: POC Resistance Strong shorts

New closing system:

These shorts use 2 buttons instead of one button through a hole.

The pockets are smaller than in the trail vent shorts, a small wallet or keys will fit perfectly.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • the Ykk zippers are smooth
As you can see the Cat s 50 phone hits perfectly inside the pocket.
  • Zip pocket at leg works well as phone pocket

Durable material used in the the seated area.

  • light weight
  • True to size fit
  • good breathability, the short is made of a thin material in the thigh and front area, and with Super Fabric on the sides. these shorts are a huge improvement in terms of cooling over the trail vent shorts.
  • perfect with knee pads

good adjustment & sizing, the sizing is perfect for me, I am 32 in waist and 26 in the hips, and I use the adjustment straps to the max both on the Poc Trail vent and Resistance shorts.

if you don’t adjust the straps just right the back of the short might feel like it’s going to fall off, even if it does not, I think this is due to the stretch material, but as long you adjust it properly it’s not an issue.

the material with stripes is the stretch material
  • strong threads/stitching
  • This one is half con and half pro, the huge Sony xz premium phone with Love Mei case just fits in snug, but but could be bigger, or maybe or have two sizes one on each side, but the zipper is a weak piont, also having phone in there is wearing holes in the fabric.

    • The VPD padding does not compromise comfort.

    Cons:

    • And of course white will look dirty
    • the VPD padding could be wider and longer.
    • only 2 colour choices
    • better zippers are needed, stronger zipper, with strong zipper grip.

    I had to use a zip tie to fix the broken grip.

    eventually the zipper failed on all of the shorts.

    Conclusion

    Because of the fit, comfort, and protection, I recommend these shorts.

    These shorts are one of the best shorts you can get, but these are the only proper shorts I have tried.

    In my opinion, these shorts are the best shorts for use so far.
