Meh, you have to buy 2 of the same shorts @ $10 each.

I don't think this is a deal.

Good deal, good price, even have side pockets which are hard to find. Thanks OP

tortureman 06-27-2013 09:15 AM

Good find. Hope the design/material I get is good.

Also love that these have pockets.

jrsyjmy 06-27-2013 09:58 AM

They state on the bottom:

*Each order contains 2 randomly selected shorts in black. Material, style & trim may vary.


But the description states:

Play Dry fabric wicks away moisture and increases ventilation so you stay dry

So I'm wondering if they are even going to be Play Dry or if you will just get cotton shorts...

Good price and good find, just not for me I think because of the way its stated.

vocalists 06-27-2013 10:00 AM

2 pack means 2 pcs right?

i'm so dumb :D

CardnalSyn 06-27-2013 10:23 AM

excellent price

Transmogrified 06-27-2013 10:42 AM

i wish the inseam was shorter. decent deal nonetheless

fz66047 06-27-2013 10:45 AM

You might get your wish, considering that they give you two random shorts. Only the color is certain. What you get could be short/long, pockets/no pockets, not sure about material even though the listing is for polyester fabrics.

wrangler1114 06-27-2013 10:46 AM

Anyone know how the sizing runs?

ceb229 06-27-2013 10:52 AM

So these are not necessarily long/baskeball shorts?
or even the play dry fabric? :?

jeffn48 06-27-2013 10:52 AM

I bought them - the polo t-shirt deal Tanga had a couple of weeks ago worked out well for me, so I decided to give this a shot.

LexusBrian400 06-27-2013 10:53 AM

In for 1. Thanks!

CountChoculitis 06-27-2013 10:56 AM

Thanks, I needed some more shorts. Working in a warehouse during summer is HOT.

sureshot32 06-27-2013 11:04 AM

I'm normally a Nike or Adidas guy, but the Reebok basketball shorts I got from Big 5 are probably my favorite. Here's hoping I'll get a couple that resemble those.
Thanks OP!

SerafinM 06-27-2013 11:04 AM

what's the size of a medium?

ktg 06-27-2013 11:07 AM

Was excited until I got to the part about "material, size, and trim may vary." No pockets or too short---deal breaker for me. Will have to pass this time.

nitemare 06-27-2013 11:21 AM

in for 1 x 2-Pack Men's Active Reebok Dry Fit Basketball Active Shorts - Charcoal Medium
thanks and repped

I agree. I'll spend $12-15 for ONE pair at TJ Maxx or Marshalls and get what I want, try them on, and easily return them if I decide don't like them.

Can you help me find the location of inseam lengths?

Thank you!

BriJeffery 06-27-2013 11:46 AM

Great find! I'm in for one pack. I can never seem to find decent basketball shorts anymore, especially at this price.

Eh, you can get Nike Basketball shorts which are way better quality for $12 over at TJMaxx/Ross/Marshalls.

Right.

I must have the worst of them here in Sacramento. I have looked a multiple around the area and the 10-13 dollars one are awful and not "long". I had one pair that said Nike Basketball Limited Edition. They looked like tennis shorts.

momomchine 06-27-2013 02:49 PM

Any Tanga codes to knock off a few more bucks?

Yeah, it's definitely a regional thing. I've gone to these stores in different cities. Certain items like Nike warm-ups and bball shorts vary based on location for sure. I just picked up 2 XL, double layer, below the knee, w/ pockets, Nike bball shorts the other day for $12.99 each here in MD.

Right.

x2 I agree, the Eastbay pocket less dazzle shorts were more tempting deal imo.

brianthelion 06-27-2013 04:14 PM

reebok... an ok deal i guess...

Curb71 06-27-2013 04:27 PM

Black sold out. Got charcoal in XL. thanks OP. was just googling the shit out of "breathable shorts" yesterday after finding out it's going to be over 100 degrees for the next few days and I bought a leather computer chair. lol

astrokreep2000 06-27-2013 05:51 PM

Anyone know of any good shorts like these, but with any sort of zipped pockets (preferably not the back pocket)?

pickmyname 06-28-2013 11:25 AM

Decided not to order these after just now receiving an answer to a question I emailed their customer service about yesterday morning:

Me:
Quote:

Regarding https://www.tanga.com/deals/9736a...s-charcoal

Title states dry-fit basketball active shorts, and description specifies pockets.

Description also says "*Each order contains 2 randomly selected shorts in charcoal. Material, style & trim may vary."

Please clarify this for me:
Would I be ordering two of the dry-fit shorts with pockets, or maybe one and another type entirely?
Them:

Hello,
Thanks for writing in, that is a very good question. Unfortunately I do not have that information, all the information I have available is listed in the product page, under the description and details tab. Sorry I couldn't be of more service!
Thanks for being an awesome Tanga Customer!
My response:

Thanks for your response. It's unfortunate you don't have access to that information. As a result, I have no idea what I'd be getting...for all I know, I could be getting one pair of non-dry-fit shorts, and one pair of gray daisy dukes. Because of this, I unfortunately will not be placing an order with Tanga today. Hopefully with future products, you and your fellow staff will be made privy to this information.

Lonelyguy 07-03-2013 02:15 AM

Received the shorts today, feels like I got ripped.

fz66047 07-04-2013 11:42 AM

Received mine...
I think it might have been made in 2006.
It might also be factory rejects because both of mine have so many loose stitching everywhere around the waistband especially by the label. I don't think I will shop at Tanga again.

lemonsama 07-05-2013 08:09 PM

Order arrived and really disappointed in the quality of the shorts. Definitely throwback shorts. Exactly like above poster stated. Loose stitching everywhere as well as stitching crossing over to other stitching.

fz66047 07-06-2013 11:25 AM

Mine also had a hole at the bottom of one of the stripes that I didn't see before I took off the tag to wash.

Also, first hand wash it with detergent in the sink before you wear it, separate from all your other clothing. :( Whatever that rust-color chemical is, I hope it's not teratogenic or carcinogenic

Edited to add: I think these are counterfeit, no way a name brand would have this kind of quality. One of mine has white drawstrings and the other has blue, one already started to rip along a stripe-seam. The UPC on the label and on the actual shorts do not match.

I would return them but I already washed them - and the hole got bigger. I'd still return them even with Tanga's crappy return policy: pay return shipping and they'll refund you less shipping charge. So you'd probably get $10 back from the original $20.

inspyral 07-06-2013 01:31 PM

Also got mine today and completely agree about the quality. Tried to tie off the loose threads as best I could so they don't unravel. Debating whether it'd be worth the trouble to return them.

nitemare 07-07-2013 12:44 PM

got mine, however poor quality. Threads loose. Draw string plastic cover was not on resulting in thread being pulled. Inside seam loose threads.
All tags on inside were cut. Also, tag on outside was cut in half so can not verify size. Only says reebok on shorts itself.
With all this being said, will keep them as they still look decent and comfortable. If this was purchased from amazon with free ship back, I would have returned them.
I also believe these are fakes as well.

inspyral 07-08-2013 01:12 PM

I took a shot and contacted Tanga about the quality of the shorts and possibly returning them. They actually got back to me late Sunday night and asked for a picture, so I snapped a few and sent them. I was expecting the standard "send them back and we'll refund you, minus shipping" or at most a prepaid shipping label. Today I got a series of emails in my inbox: a refund alert from PayPal, a refund alert from Tanga, and a reply from Tanga to my original inquiry saying I didn't need to ship the shorts back. While the quality of these shorts could have been a lot better, it's nice to know Tanga's customer service is top notch.

bluefakeplastic 07-08-2013 09:47 PM

Got a quick response about the loose fabric, cracked/peeled label within the shorts, and the fact that they're likely knock offs. They just shot me a prepaid return label and assurance I'll receive refund upon receipt. I can live with that.
