      These are the standard soffe silkies/ranger panties. Nothing special, just like the old issued ones, perhaps a little more durable (not getting as wornout under utilities as older issues style.

    • Daisy Dukes of freedom!
      Reviewer: Taylor


      These are the absolute most comfortable shorts I've ever had the luxury of wearing. I use them as underwear, and let me tell you, more often than not, I forget that I'm actually wearing anything at all. The only complaint that takes a star is that all the colors EXCEPT for black, pill and wear down horribly in the region between the legs. Only the black shorts seem to not pill regardless of how much I wear them.

      Reviewer: D.W.


      Unlike swimsuits with a net lining these silky shorts make for a nearly perfect base layer. I have worn them hiking 10 hour days in the mountains and they never chafed or dug-in. The elastic waist is unique due to it's soft and easy stretching fit (no waffle prints around your waist). They can be rinsed and put back on immediately because they will dry while you wear them. As a medical professional I find that feature useful for a lot of people with physical impairments that limit mobility, continence, and bathing.

      Reviewer: james crepeau


      silky smooth. so comfortable and they ride high on the thigh and sometimes its off putting to people but these shorts are so comfortable especially on hot days. i used to wear these running in cuba. and it took me a little to wear them because they so short but i got over that and boy they were nice also allowed to get a much better tan then wearing other shorts. they have a silky kind of liner that lets your boys breath and in hot places that is a blessing. i will get a few more in the future

      I purchased these shorts because my previous shorts wore out after about 3 years. They are very comfortable, they can be worn outside for sports or yard work. They can be worn for lounging around the house, or worn under sweat pants. I highly recommend them. If ordering, get one size bigger as they run a little small. Will purchase again

      I ordered a new pair of green silkies to wear in a force on force vehicle class. While the rest of the class was dressed to nines in Crye Multicam pants, Paraclete PCs, Merrill boots, and bump helmets, I simply wore the essentials...... OC Maritime Helmet, Low profile plate carrier, Soffe Silkies and Crocs. While the rest of the teams were getting smoked by the OpFor, I lead our team to constant victories thanks in part to the pure American agility provided me by my new pair of thigh hugging ranger panties. 10/10 would buy again. Fast shipping too!

      These ranger panties are the best athletic apparel I own. Their versatility is unrivaled. If you walk onto the court, field, or track sporting these, you instantly gain the attention and respect of your fellow competitors, not to mention a tactical advantage. Want to traverse the field faster? Ranger Panties. Want to drop 15 seconds off your mile time? Ranger Panties. Want to break ankles and blind your opponents with your lightning fast legs? Ranger Panties. I think we're done here.

      Reviewer: Dean


      The first time I was introduced to Silkies, I was a 17 year old recruit at MCRD San Diego and as such I was more concerned about becoming a Marine than I was about the luscious silky grasp provided by these shorts. Fast forward 30 years and I decided to buy a pair on a lark. Oh my dear lord, what I have missed all these years. So long as I am able to walk, and so long as they sky is out, so shall my thighs be out.

    • Super comfortable
      Reviewer: John Swanson


      Love these shorts. Unrestrictive for full ROM. Look forward to running in these come spring. One down side, thread around the waist is starting to unravel. This happened in under a month. Doesn't seem to be effecting performance so far. Still would recommend.

    • They are called Silkies
      Reviewer: Travis Strickland


      I don't know what Rangers wear, but Marines wear silkies. These are the same silkies I used to wear for PT in the Marines. They are super comfy, light weight and chicks dig them. Pretty much a win-win.

      These are my new favorite shorts. They are so comfortable and close to wearing nothing at all that my wife won't let me leave the house with them on!
