Orca Core Tri Pant Review

Looking for a pair of tri shorts with a bit more coverage, with a comfortable pad, and has pockets?  You should consider the Orca Core Tri Pant.

It features a 6mm thick pad that provides ample coverage and support while on the bike, but not so big that it’d interfere with you on the run.  On the back is center pocket for storing personal items, such as additional nutrition, keys or an ID.  As for the inseam length, it’s 8.26 inches.

Other features of the short is that it has  reflective trim for lower light conditions, hydroseal leg hems, and a rubber waistband/internal draw cord.

Orca Core Tri Shorts

At the core any training plan, race, and just about any endurance event is the triathlete’s comfort level when it comes to physical exertion.  Being that triathlon is grueling enough, your apparel shouldn’t add any stress when you’re in movement.  The Orca Core Tri Pant is an example of an item that aligns with this notion.
What’s special about this short is that the pad is a hybrid chamois that’s 6mm thick, giving you the extra padding and comfort while you’re on the bike, but is balanced enough to where it wouldn’t be disruptive on the run.  The short has an 8″ in inseam length, making it modest on leg coverage.  Tri Shorts usually range from 6″ to 9″ inches as noted in this tri short comparison chart.

The short has an internal drawcord, so there shouldn’t be any crazy issue with the washing machine pulling any string out of the short.

Two pockets for gels, IDs, cards, and the like.

You’ll find its companion tri top, the Orca Core Tri Tank, stylish and cool as well.  You can find this short and others like it here: tri shorts.
