the Ripton & Co. Ventura Jorts are so Baja fresh they smack of fried halibut tacos, finished with a salty pacific breeze, battered in the blistering equatorial sun, and bronzed until our technical razor-thin denim is ready to spring to life. Get ready for long summer nights, cut them way too short for the 4th of July; we will paint houses in these, catch blue fish off the coast of New England, hike deep into the alpine lakes of Colorado, and jump on our trail bikes for a quick party lap with the crew after work. Emerging from the long dark Covid winter, the Ventura V3 Jorts are everything we miss and will be what we’re wearing as we ride out the storm to warmer shores this summer of 2021.

So far, so good. Great cut, and fabric feels cozy but durable. The recommendation is to try “going commando,” though the seams make this uncomfortable, esp for active sports. Try a design that doesn’t bunch 4 thicknesses of fabric right where it’s least welcome.
These are absolutely the most comfortable shorts that I own... definitely most confortable jorts with how stretchy and light. Not yet sold on wearing them for mountain biking. Work for around town or the pump track. They’re still pretty hot (I mean manage expectations... they are jorts after all), and this cut is pretty short above a knee pad. Once again, as far as daily jorts though, my bf asked if I’m going to get another pair or just planning to keep wearing these every day.
They are the only shorts I feel comfortable wearing. They don't chafe, they breathe, and they are great for all-day wear, even if I'm not riding my bike.
My wife loves them and I love them too because she looks hot in them especially when they are rolled up.
Wore these to the Killington downhill park last weekend and got so many complements its uncanny. I predict everyone will be wearing jorts on the east coast mountain bike scene by the end of summer. I'm 5'5" and 145 ish pounds with big biker butt/legs and got a 28 and these fit high waisted like a glove. If you want to fit chamois under them I would size up. For me there was no need for a belt or nothin. Have worn them gravel riding too, for longer than 20 miles they start to ride up a bit (they are short!) so I'm ordering a second longer pair for that kind of riding. Thank you Ripton for helping me make friends and feel cool.
