“Clearly, all you need is a fresh pair of Ranger Panties and a patriotic spirit, and you’re ready to take on the world.”

— Adam Clark Estes

A “Brief” History

Whether you love or hate silkies or ranger panties, these (uncomfortably) short shorts are definitely here to stay. They were first issued in the 1970s to the US Army Rangers as part of their Physical Training uniform. Later on, the US Marines adopted the use of these shorts and called them “silkies” because, you know, they had to have their nickname for it.

What People Say About It

These shorts are not only for soldiers, as civilians also fell in love with the ranger panties. Based on the Amazon reviews that these shorts have garnered, it is safe to say that people love them. Who wouldn’t? Soft, excruciatingly short, super comfortable. One review even said that it was a life-changer. Here are some of the other reviews:

If you don’t like sexy women staring at your member, then these shorts are not for you. These are absolutely the best shorts in the history of ever. There is Nothing you can’t do in them….hit a 300lb squat? Pffff… Swim? Well, they will dry instantly when you get out of the pool. Sleep in them… Like sleeping naked. Mow the yard in July, and you won’t break a sweat. Fight terrorism?…consider the neighborhood safe. The list of things is endless. The only thing I would advise against is, I wouldn’t wear them when the wife hosts a book club.

Wearing these shorts in public may cause erratic driving, gasps from women in your neighborhood, and/or laughter and pointing from small children.

If you’re tired of shorts that make you look like a circus clown, these might be what you’re looking for… No offense to the clown community.

These are REALLY short, REALLY thin, and REALLY transparent. Unless you’re attending Pride, you will scar every child and elderly woman you pass on your run as these will define your anatomy like a vacuum wrapped sausage.
