I had a difficult time trying to decide which shorts to buy. Between the Bullitt, OG Bullitt, and the Mako. I think that the material on the Bullitt shorts are my favorite. They are durable, dry fast and have a good amount of stretch to them(Perfect for squats and other flexible movements). The OG Bullitt may dry faster but feels more like swim trunk material if I could compare it to something. It has very little stretch, which may work for some but is not for me going to the gym. However, the OG waistband was nice. The Mako material was more light and airy, very stretchy and softer to the touch. Although they are mostly nylon the added PU makes them feel great. Not like the OG which is almost all nylon. I feel the liner on the Mako is thicker and less supportive than typical compression shorts. Still usable, but not great for the gym, fantastic for running. If you are going to use the Mako for the gym maybe get the un lined version and use with compression shorts. The material matters to me, straight nylon shorts are no different than wearing swim trunks. Straight polyester is no different that wearing soccer shorts or something comparable. The material on the Bullitt is very nice not like any shorts I have ever worn. Mako being second. The pockets are nicer on the Mako, the stash pocket is great for running if you want to throw a few small items in there and keep it minimal. It would be nice to see a back pocket maybe on this Bullitt short or a stash pocket as an optional version but these are not absolutely necessary for the gym. The media pocket does work well, I did a 5 mile run with my phone in my pocket and it did not flop around or bother me. In summary, I am very happy with the Bullitt is a great pair of shorts. My hope is that you guys are not getting away from this design in favor of the OG. I think the regular Bullitt beats the OG hands down. Also, I really want to buy more pairs but the lack of color options has me limited to getting another Mako. So hopefully more colors in the near future. Thanks for making a great product!
