My new favorite pair of shorts!

The fit is perfect, and I love the bold print. Will be purchasing more!

Awesome shorts, much better than the previous design.

Awesome shorts, much better than the previous design. I love how they improved the design on these shorts, they do not chafe like the previous style. My only suggestion for the shorts is in the future make them so they dry faster like some of the competitor shorts. Other than that— spot on!!

Excellent shorts!

I absolutely love these shorts. They are the perfect length and are lightweight and breathable. They’re comfortable even for long runs in hot, humid weather. The only downside is the price. I wish they were a little less expensive.

Love them

I've been wearing them for long runs, short runs, work Zooms, sleeping, and everything in between. Feels almost like you're wearing nothing. I have the "joy champaka" design and love how they look. I'm 5'5", 120 lbs, size 26 in jeans and the small fits me well.

Finally!

I love these shorts! I always have issues finding shorts that aren’t too tight on my hips and thighs, and these shorts are great! I’ve worn these shorts playing soccer, running, hiking and just lounging around. I’m 5’4” and 135lbs (29in hips) and I ordered a Medium.

like air!

These shorts have quickly become my most favorite, so much so that I wash them immediately after use so that I can wear them the next day. The fabric, cut and feel is the lightest sensation! No cutting, binding, riding or chafing. I love the inside pocket and waist band. Favorite color is the Royal Blue which looks more like a periwinkle or cornflower color.

New fave shorts

Have you ever been on a run and suddenly you think you hear someone clapping for you, only to then realize that it’s your sweaty shorts slapping the back of your legs? Well, you’re not going to get that with these. Super lightweight material that dries fast and no annoying “crotch bunching”. I’ve recommended these to two other friends, and they love them too. I will definitely be getting more pairs!

Great shorts for an Ultra

I'm 5'2" 125lbs, and these in size small fit perfectly. No chafing to speak of, even having run a 50K. Always appreciate any clothing that leaves me unscathed!

So comfortable and light

I run ultramarathons and love that these are so lightweight, I don't even have to think about them!
