    Terrier well done. Can you take a pic that shows how transparent they are. Maybe put a magazine between the layers of material and take a pic. I'm thinking of picking a pair up.

    Terrier,

    Thank you for an honest review and for your astute observations. It is always nice when someone takes the time to look at all the details that go into making a product.

    You are correct in that we did add more room throughout the shorts for the 2006 version.

    Thanks again.

    Steve

    I just wore a pair of vale tudo shorts underneath mine to solve the transparency issue. One of the best looking pair of shorts I've got! For that reason I dont train in them....... much! haha

    Nice write-up/review. I got the black ones and there is no transparency issue, of course. I wonder if the issue with the yellow shorts will discourage them from releasing a white version.

    Maybe they will be able to use a little bit thicker material for a white batch

    I've got quite a few pairs of vale tudo shorts, I prefer to train and stuff in Sprawls, Nogi's etc But I will always wear vale tudo shorts to actually fight or compete in. I've got Hunters, Chute Boxe, Wand, Rage and BTT

    Comparing mine to yours, they (your pair) appear to be from the slightly transparent bunch? Mine are much brighter yellow.

    Good pics and review Terrier.
