    They're Baaaaaaaack: All-Around Shorts

    All-Around Shorts - Pistol Lake

    Finally, the day is here: All-Around Shorts are back in every size and color we've got.

    Since our super-successful Kickstarter two summers ago, these versatile threads have become one of Pistol Lake's most sought-after items.

    And for good reason...  All-Around Shorts are meant for, well, everything.

    The Fabulous Facts

    - Water-resistant
    - Four-way stretch
    - Cell phone snap pocket
    - Elastic waistband for comfort
    - Back welt pocket for a minimalist aesthetic
    - Double reinforced stitching

    Starting now, they're restocked in BlackCharcoalNavyGargoyleTan, and Olive

    With their no-sheen tailored look, you can go from hike to happy hour with breezy ease. We reduced some pesky pocket flares and tight waistbands, so these shorts are better than ever.

    You're Not Dreaming: Say Hello to Stretch Terry Shorts

    Stretch Terry Shorts - Gray

    In February, we launched the immaculately-comfortable Stretch Terry Joggers – today, we're back... with less.

    Less pants, that is. More quality products... but just with less fabric.

    Yeah, you're right, that worked better in our heads too.

    Like heaven on earth, our Stretch Terry Shorts are crazy soft and ready for all your greatest adventures. But should your sights be set on something a little more local, these lightweight shorts are perfect for curling up with a book or grilling on the deck too.

    If you're new to the neighborhood or just emerging from underneath a year-long pandemic rock – simply put, Stretch Terry is our softest fabric yet. 

    We've launched in Black, Gray, Charcoal, Navy, and Forest – all wrapped up in the same cut as our well-loved French Terry Sweat Shorts and finished off with a snap pocket for safe storage.

    For months, y'all have wondered when the French Terry Sweat Shorts would come back – and here's your official, on-the-record answer:

    We were building something even better.

    Kickstarter Success Story: The All-Around Shorts

    Pistol Lake All-Around Shorts

    Last summer, Pistol Lake spun up a Kickstarter to fund the creation of our new product, the All-Around Shorts. Needless to say, the campaign was a massive success and raised 3x the amount we originally aimed for – and, recently, they started shipping out to our backers.

    Well, you might be thinking, that’s cool, but did I miss my chance to grab a pair? Never fear, my friends.

    After the dust settled, we had a handful of extras left in each size and color – even better, as of this very second, they’re live on the website.

    Given their water-resistance and durable four-way stretch, the All-Around Shorts are the most versatile pair you’ll ever own. Whether you’re sneaking in a quick workout or hanging by the fire, our newest invention is ready for whatever the day throws at you. Now available in Black, Charcoal, Navy, Gargoyle, Tan, and Olive.
