  1. Excellent shorts - must buy :) 5/5 stars Review by Oliver

    Five Ultimate hydro shorts both look and feel superb. The material is comfortable, stretchy and non restrictive when playing ultimate.

    It is also nice and light, so can be worn in warm conditions nicely, as well as with compression shorts and/or thermal baselayers in colder conditions.

    In terms of sizing, I would say they will true to size (I ordered a large and im 6ft 1" and they are a nice slightly baggy fit).

    Great shorts at a great price, highly recommended, whether you are just starting with ultimate or have been playing for years.

  2. Great Pair of Shorts Review by Joshy C

    These shorts are extremely comfortable. They fit well and are great for ultimate. A great purchase (Posted on 1/21/15)

  3. Quality Shorts Review by Cam

    The first time I got these in hand, they felt like silk. They were soft, seemed durable, and were stretchy enough. It turns out all of these first impressions held up when I play in them and then some. For the price, you can't really go wrong, and if you don't even want to play ultimate in them that's fine, because they can just as easily be trainer shorts, or athletic shorts in general. P.S. It feels awesome to rep 5 when I'm wearing these! (Posted on 1/5/15)

  4. YES!!!! Review by Jeremy Schneider

    Most comfortable shorts I have ever owned. I wear these all the time, whether I'm playing Ultimate or not. (Posted on 12/26/14)

  5. Like the Product. International shipping is not so good. Review by Gutmensch

    I love the product which is the reason why I ordered it. However, I now live in Europe and had the stuff shipped there. Unfortunately they didn't deliver it to my house as FiveUltimate didn't put the receipt on the outside of the package. As I result I had to go to my local customs office to organize everything. Going forward, please put the invoice/receipt on the outside of the package. Shipping is expensive enough...

  8. Fantastic Shorts Review by Carmen

    I wore my first fiveutimate shorts yesterday and it was awesome . It was so comfortable cuz it's light, soft and stretchy. It didnt get heavy and stick to my skin as much when i played under the rain. Its very worth the price too. (Posted on 11/24/14)

    I love the classic black and the length for a girl who's a size 6 and 5.9, they fit perfect! Love how soft and lightweight they are! (Posted on 9/22/14)

  17. TL; DR Shorts are dope. I'd wear them forever if I could. Review by Ryan

    The see shorts are amazing. These are the fourth pair of shorts I have bought from Five. White tiger, Rainbow, and Lavawesome. The more shorts I obtain, the more ladies want to date me and more layouts are completed flawlessly. I have also noticed my vertical has increased dramatically as well, allowing me to sky fools for days. (Posted on 9/12/14)

  18. So comfortable! Review by Andrew

    Such an awesome pair of short! I recently went up to a men's size 34 and the mediums are just a tad too small. I would recommend a large for anything 33+. Shipping was quick and I love the stickers! (Posted on 9/10/14)

  19. Best Shorts Out There Review by Joe Sidrys

    My team decided to go with a mountain climbing clothing store for their jerseys. I special ordered a pair of Five shorts and sent them to the screen shop so I could play in what makes me most comfortable. (Posted on 8/21/14)

  20. Black Hydro Shorts review Review by Jill

    My son loves this pair of shorts. He wears them several days in a row and hand wash them at night. Time to get another pair! (Posted on 8/21/14)

  21. An Excellent Buy Review by Mike

    The shorts are cool and wick moisture well. The price is about right for the quality although be warned that you should buy a size larger than you think you should; the fit can be snug for some if you order directly to your waist size. 10/10 would order again! (Posted on 8/10/14)

  22. Love them! Review by Crisis Averted

    literally all I like wearing are these shorts.
    they're comfy for all activities and they dry fast if you wear them while it rains and black goes with everything. (Posted on 7/30/14)

  23. Not the best for ladies Review by CT

    I got these shorts thinking they would be more unisex but they are definitely guy shorts! In the past I have been hesitant to get women's shorts since they fit tighter in the leg but these shorts hang way too low for my liking so I am not really a fan. Guess I should of just stuck with purchasing the women's version. But overall great quality! (Posted on 7/28/14)

  24. LOVE THEM! Review by Victor Perez

    I play Ultimate in Costa Rico and my GF got me Hydro shorts from LEIouT. There's a before and an after wearing these Hydro shorts. (Posted on 7/14/14)

  25. perfect for humid climates Review by cfred

    I live in Miami. Playing ultimate in this humidity makes the sweat come down in buckets. Not so with five ultimate gear. Best I've ever used. (Posted on 6/30/14)

    These are the only shorts you should wear for ultimate. Quick shipping too! (Posted on 6/26/14)

    Bought a pair of black and yellow Hydro shorts since joining a new team this summer.

    I really like how light these shorts feel and how they don't get too soaked with sweat and cling.

    A bargain! (Posted on 6/11/14)

(Posted on 6/4/14)

  31. Very good shorts, light and stretchy material Review by Mike

    These shorts are very light and incredibly stretchy (I could pull them down to my feet!). No pockets but they aren't really necessary while playing. Length just hits my knee which is great (I'm 5'11") (Posted on 5/30/14)

    Top of the line ultimate shorts. Super light weight, dry fast, wick sweat / rain, and soft.
