Akta Trail Short

These shorts are well made and for the most part comfortable. The only thing I don’t like is the cell phone pocket with the D30 padding. It makes the shorts feel unbalanced. I would like to see that padding be removable. It’s really kind of annoying. To me the padding of that pocket is on the wrong side anyway. As someone who’s broken a hip riding seems weird that the pad is there to protect the phone and not the body. I don’t ride with things in pockets so as stated before it would be nice if the padding was removable or put it on both sides.

Awesome quality, should have checked the sizing better.

Awesome shorts, I'm normally a medium and didn't check the size charts (should have ordered a large), so I'd advise double checking.

Great short, had to size up.

Pocket fits my iPhone 15 pro max in otter box case

Everything I want in a short! The d30 pocket is great peace of mind. I’ve crashed in them and it’s done its job!

Good but a couple quirks

Overall the shorts seem pretty good. They have a good build quality and are made of good material. I'm not sure though why they have a button, and a fast strap to close the shorts? The button sort of makes the strap irrelevant, as the point of the strap is to be able to make small size adjustments. The fast strap is sort of useless. They would be better off without the button completely. They were also quite bulky around the butt section. Gave bubble butt sort of vibes. Luckily they fit my wife's butt perfectly and she's claimed ownership of the shorts.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the honest review! I am curious about the 'button', our shorts only have a center from zipper and a ratchet closer. We'd be into hearing more info if you have the time! You can contact us directly at info (at)
