I don't wear pants, who needs them. I'm all natural. Let that breeeze hit you and you feel so re-freshed.

Lol.  I didnt really ask a question in the post.  I meant to ask, does anyone wear shorts while PKing?  Though...the message pretty much asks the same question.  I cant tell if you're being sarcastic or serious  ::)

Who is to say you must wear this or that? You freerun buttnaked man, although people will think you're crazy. I freerun in basketball shorts and a t-shirt. You don't want to run in sweats in 80 degree weather.

Thats what I figured, but I figured people wore pants to minimize cuts and scrapes if something goes wrong.

I wear very thin pants. The long pants protect my shins from some light scrapage and cutage, but are also thin enough to allow flexibelity, and coolness.

I just read something in the Movement section on this guy that said he was afraid of doing wall runs and stuff like that due to the scrapes and cuts his hands were getting and someone replied that your hands will get used to it and toughen up.  Is that the same with legs and knees?

The Most likely reason for this confusion is that movies in the recent past have been filmed in cool/cold weather (when it was comfortable to wear pants). Pant's do give protection, but I personally like shorts much more for PK.
life is too short, so love the one you got

It comes down to personal taste, wear whatever you want. With that said, I think pants look a lot neater and more professional. Take Bruno from Lisses video and you might see what I mean. He is doing nearly everything Belle does yet Bruno is wearing mainly shorts and it looks sloppier. The few clips he has pants on look cleaner to me.

I used to wear shorts but switched to pants for a couple reasons. One is that I think they look better, the other is that i feel like shorts restrict me during some jumps. When I am going to do a big jump in shorts I always start pulling them up over my knees because it feels uncomfortable. My adidas athletic pants are super flexible and durable. Ive been wearing them for 6 months and they are still like new.

yeah, I usualy just rock athletic running-type pants, they always fit at the waist, flexible, no zippers.  Though some shorts made out of the same material would be good.
