Excellent shorts

Love these. They're pretty similar in many ways to the also good 5" multi short, but I like the pocket layout and fabric of these more.

Pockets Elevated This Short

I always liked the 5" AFO middle short for it being lightweight, comfortable, great colors and patterns, and the back zipped pocket. Having the additional pockets for tissue, gels and other stuff made a great short even greater! I am female but like having a 5" inseam.

Awesome race shorts

Was looking for shorts to wear during my marathons and these are perfect. Plenty of pockets to hold all my fueling, phone and keys. Getting more once the tights are also back in stock.

Super light!

I wear them for long runs, they are super light, quick dry, and the pockets are good to place wallets and phone for a post run stroll to grab a quick bite.
