    First Experience, well worth it

    Posted by Douglas Murphy on Sep 12th 2018

    I've been following Origin, lurking on the social media for a bit now thanks to Jocko Willink and his podcast making the introduction. I ordered these navy 2018 sharkfins not only because it's 100% American made, but because I've always been looking for that right pair of shorts for my casual and summer time wear. My first impression was how incredibly light they were, truly as if i wasn't wearing anything at all. The material feels tough, and by tough I mean durable (lol, hence durable goods), I can wear these without concern of tears or snags etc. When I first took them out of the bag (literally same day it came in the mail) I had to put them on. I honestly couldn't remember the last time I was that excited about clothing I ordered online. When I did I experienced all the emotions I mentioned earlier, but I noticed the hem around them bottom of the leg felt a little sharp (for lack of a better term). After a quick run through wash and dry that isn't an issue anymore. The main pockets do take some getting used to, exceptionally deep, but just different to work with at the opening. I love these shorts overall, the Mrs does too, and they definitely pass the dryer test. Cannot wait to see a possible cargo pant, and I will be ordering the other colors.

    Almost Perfect

    Posted by Dan F. on Sep 10th 2018

    These shorts fit true to size, are very comfortable, extremely durable, and seem like they are going to last a lifetime. My only complaint is that the "fly" cover moves and shows the zipper often which is a different color (camo) than the blue so that area tends to stick out to the eye. BUT... I have not washed them yet so maybe after broken in more it will stop. But really, I like them so much I don't care.
