This is a review for my custom fight shorts made by Cruz Combat. They are “cropped” fight shorts, so if your looking for short MMA shorts, look no further! For those that don’t know, Cruz Combat is Guy Mezgers company that have been producing custom fight shorts and rashguards for a while now, and are starting to appear at MMA events across the globe, including the UFC. They can pretty much make you fight shorts to any specs you want, and you have full control over the colour scheme, the length, the design pattern, the type of waist (elastic or fixed etc) and of course putting your name or team name on them. They have custom fight shorts starting at $59. Short fight shorts are one of their specialties, which is cool because shorter fight shorts are becoming very popular now. Their website is here (link is to the custom section):Cruz Combat Or their Facebook page: Cruz Combat Facebook I was pretty much looking for a pair of short MMA shorts like a lot of people are now, and found these guys through a friend. I dealt with Ryan Knecht who looked after me from start to finish. He’s a super cool guy to work with, and always very prompt with his replies. I picked a basic colour scheme (blue fade) and then specified the length and waist type I wanted (elastic fit). Then I emailed him the logos I wanted put on the shorts and specified where, and told him I wanted my name on the legs of the shorts. Ryan then emailed me back a copy of the template and asked for my feedback, and I gave him the green light to make the shorts. The template looks a little like this (this template wasnt for my shorts, just an example) and you can re-arrange the logos whichever way you choose to: He gave me regular updates on my order which took about 2 weeks to complete and then another week or so to ship to Australia. I ordered in advance so I had plenty of time to make any changes needed, but they also have a “rush” order option now in case you’ve left things to the last minute. Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the customer service from Ryan at Cruz Combat, and I’ll be ordering some custom vale tudo shorts and a custom rashguard in the near future. As for the shorts, well this pair are now nearly 2 years old and still in great shape. I use them for training every single week and they are perfect. Incredibly light, comfortable and obviously durable. The colours and logos haven’t faded a bit in 2 years, and other than a couple of loose threads they are in the same condition they were when I purchased them. They are so much more comfortable than any other shorts I’ve used, they dry quickly after washing, they don’t shrink and they are perfect for any type of training or competition. This pair has a semi-elastic waistband with a drawstring, a gusseted crotch for mobility in grappling and kicking and a built in mouthpiece holder. I cant remember exactly what length I specified but basically I took my current shorts at the time, measured their length and subtracted about 5-6 inches in length and asked for that. In summary, these are my favourite shorts ever, and for $99 (though they start at $59) I think they are the most comfortable, light and durable shorts you can get anywhere, plus you can totally customize them to whatever you want and have a truly unique pair of shorts that no one else has. Hope you enjoyed the review! Feel free to ask me any questions.
