Cross-Training Shorts: Hylete Vertex Zip Pocket

Posted in Gear

Every candidate and warrior athlete endures a healthy dose of long distance runs, open water swims, and calisthenics as he/she trains. It can be frustrating when you compete with excellence in multiple arenas and yet your gear cannot. Hylete aims to solve this disparity with its ultra-high quality and versatile cross-training shorts, the Vertex Zip Pocket Short.

Whether your workout session calls for a 6-mile ruck march followed by combat side stroke (CSS) or mountains of pushups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and squats – the Vertex Zip can handle it all.

My favorite trait in a workout short is the ability to cross-train from the water. I love to swim and then run, and unless I wanted to experience pointless chafing, I had to switch shorts. However, Mark Divine’s Sealfit introduced me to Hylete and now I just slip on the incredibly comfortable Vertex Zip and I am good to go.

If you are ready to take your training to the next level, then pick up a pair (or two) of these shorts and lead the way! Lastly, I highly recommend visiting Hylete to check out all of the great gear they offer. These guys are one of my favorites.
