OUTLIER’s Ultra Ultra Easy Shorts Take Gym Shorts to a Whole New Level

The activewear space is more competitive than ever. Despite corporate juggernauts like Nike and adidas ruling the roost, the emergence of technical boutique brands has led to an influx of sophisticated fitness garments that fuse form and function in ways we’ve never before seen. A particularly elite relative newcomer is OUTLIER, a New York City brand founded in 2008 that makes high-performance gear that can handle the most rigorous of workouts. Now, the brand is adding to its already stellar lineup of offerings with its latest and greatest gym short: the Ultra Ultra Easy Short.

With a name like OUTLIER, you almost have to make a product so good that it’s over-the-top, and boy did OUTLIER do just that with the Ultra Ultra Easy shorts. These “ultra-excessive” gym shorts feature Schoeller’s double-woven, four-way stretch fabric, which is a blend of nylon and elastane, to increase the shorts’ durability and decrease their weight. On top of that, the shorts feature an F0 Ecorepel Bio DWR treatment that dries faster, repels water, and keeps the fabric cleaner. This construction allows for a greater range of motion without sacrificing comfort or softness.

From a utility perspective, these shorts are ultra-versatile, sporting powermesh pockets for enhanced breathability and discrete zippers to keep your belongings safe and secure. The shorts also sport a low-profile waistband that employs a stretch drawcord and 3Bar closure for easy and efficient adjusting. On top of their impressive technical features, the shorts are stylish and well designed, offering a streamlined build and an understated silhouette.

These fantastic shorts come in an array of colors: black, dark navy, sagebrush, seascape, and winedeep, and their inseam is a crowd-pleasing 7.25″. OUTLIER’s Ultra Ultra Easy Shorts retail for $168 and can be purchased on the brand’s website.
