Descente Ridge is well made sharp looking short for all around mountain biking. The stitching is neat and materials are of high quality. The short is available in several conservative colors (black, charcoal and earth) with few graphical accents. Despite the sizing issue it is one of the better ones that I had. The sale price makes it a great deal too.
Blackburn Airstik 3 is a decent mini pump to have around though a bit heavy. Performance is average, you will have to be very lucky to lock a tubeless tire on the rim, but it will work fine for adding air or with tubes. Dual Stroke design is more of a gimmick, but it makes small difference at lower pressures. The pump is reasonably priced, well built and looks good.
