Great shorts!

I bought these for my wife who has been running in the "big name" brands. She says they are the best running shorts she's worn and looks great in them too!

Most comfortable running shorts

This is my third pair and they are so comfortable. I bought a size bigger than my normal because I wanted them to be roomy. They’re ridiculously comfortable. The waistband is a great design and doesn’t dig in anywhere or slip off because of the drawstring. And the fabric is so light weight it feels like next to nothing. I can’t see myself buying running shorts from any other brand again.

Great shorts

They fit perfectly. Despite being some of my shortest shorts, they move with your body when you run and never get too revealing. The liner and the shorts are both wicking and super comfortable. On my third pair!

The best shorts

These are my favorite running shorts, I have 4 pairs! They are soft, breathable, dry quickly, and don’t bunch up at my thighs. The large zipper pocket fits my phone which is something I always look for when buying shorts.

Running naked

I hardly notice I'm wearing these shorts while I run! Not sure if that's a good thing or not but I love them! They are extremely light and flowy which is perfect for humid, summer running. I can sweat and the fabric won't stick to me, keeping me from feeling constricted in this heat. Would highly recommend! I'm normally a small but I bought a medium based on the recommended sizing, but think I could have sized down to my normal size if I wanted to. I just have to tie the drawstring as much as I can which isn't a big deal for me.

The force is with it

I've bought many iterations of these shorts and have found sizing to be inconsistent. I usually hover between XS and S, but the last time I bought a small in these, they felt restrictive. I ended up buying a few in M of the most recent ones released and lo and behold, they fixed the sizing issue. The M was too large and the S is now an actual S! (Great return/exchange policy BTW)

Anyway, these shorts are gold. Back zippered pocket, funky designs, lightweight, no necessary seams (the seams are taped, i.e. LESS CHAFING!), quick drying, lined -- this is all you need! I've owned many pairs of running shorts and these are my favorite.

My favorite shorts!

These shorts are *extremely* lightweight without being revealing, which is fantastic for summer running. They're also quick drying - I'm a big fan of jumping in the river after summer runs and these shorts are often nearly dry by the time I'm back home. I love the zippered pocket in the back (I've had my car key fall out of drop pockets in running shorts before!) but the cord to secure a key in the front drop pocket is a nice touch. I'm also surprised how well these shorts have held up - I've had them for a little over a year with very frequent wear and they look the same as when I bought them. I have an model that definitely has not held up that well, the updated fabric is very durable!

Love the shorts

Took a little while to get to me but once I made a call they shipped right away but couldn’t get the shorts I ordered and instead got a different color. I do like the shorts but would love more colors
