The VersaTac line for summer! A whole lot of R&D went into their technical design. We developed them in conjunction with military professionals and outdoorsmen who are more the type to read Field & Stream rather than Men’s Journal. We’ve even found that U.S. Special Forces have taken a special liking to our VersaTacs. When your life is constantly in harm’s way, you want the ultimate protection in clothing. The Light Shorts are made with super tough yet lightweight 3-oz Duralite Nylon fabric (the same kind used in our Weatherpants), and features a gussetted crotch and double-reinforced seat. They sport the following: side cargo pockets with internal pockets to hold a flashlight, mag clips, and energy bars; vertical zippers on front cargo pockets that allow quick access while sitting, kneeling or driving a vehicle; and reinforced pocket openings to prevent abrasion against knife clip chafe. Front pockets close with Velcro and double-button closures, and two back pockets have flaps with Velcro and double-button closure as well. Additional Cell phone pocket now incorporated behind the top of both cargo pockets.
Reason for Being: We took our popular VersaTac pants and added an option for super hot weather. The VersaTac shorts have all the function and features of the pants without half the pant legs.
Fabric: 2 ply, 3 ounce duralite Nylon Shell, same as VersaTac Light Pants
Pockets: Huge cargo pockets with both button and Velcro closure. Additional side zipper for easy access to the pockets when sitting or kneeling. Cargo pockets have additional pockets inside for organization and a cell phone pocket behind.
RAILTEX Reinforcement: Railtex is the reinforcement nylon we put on most of our pants, similar to Cordura®. It is highly abrasion and water resistant and is a second layer of defense. The VersaTac Light Shorts have RailTex on the seat, along the bottom edge, and around the pockets.
It's not easy to improve on a great product but Railriders did just that. The addition of deeper larger cell phone pockets with Velcro closure keeps our phone handy and secure. I wear them every day and still have not worn out a pair of these shorts. Thanks guys

Not a lot to add to the reviews already posted. The shorts are fabulous and well made. It's a great design and well implemented. I wish every retail outlet was run with as much integrity as this one.

Light weight extremely durable color fast and designed perfectly for outdoor utility. I have never owned a better made garment - I literally wear them every day and three pair have lasted four years. I'm not replacing them right now just adding a few more. You just can't kill them - The 4 year-old shorts still have tons of life left in them.
