The first rule to making something sustainable? Build it to last. This short is built to endure the rigors of serious wear. We removed zippers, because they will inevitably fail. We made it out of our AFO-Vent fabric — a durable nylon that is lightweight yet tough, abrasion resistant, odor resistant and will retain its shape. We changed the drawcord to an infinity loop that will not get tugged out in the wash and we reinforced the pocket openings with 14 bar tacks.

Our AFO-Vent fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

New Favorite Shorts

I could not be more in love with these shorts. I've been trying to find a replacement for my Nike running shorts for years. I'm 6'0'' tall and 170 lbs, and I struggle to find women's shorts with an inseam that doesn't feel like it's creeping up or is too tight on my thighs.

The split seam on these shorts gives me the freedom of movement I've been looking for. I went with a size M, and they fit perfectly - I suggest ordering true to size. The fabric is also very lightweight and dries quickly.

Love these shorts

These are my favorite running shorts OF ALL TIME. I trained for Chicago through a humid, hot summer in the Southeast. They were perfect! I wore them on race day too. Please make more!

I love these shorts

I bought 2 pairs for my summer marathon training period. They were my go-to long run shorts for the storage space. They were perfect for the humid runs and for wet race days. Loved them so much that I ended up running Chicago and NYC marathons with them. Race day, I would carry my phone in my bra, but my shorts held 6 gels, airpods case, battery pack, tissue pack and they looked fantastic. I am most definitely gonna buy more of these.

I also did run a half with the phone in the back pocket and a few gels, and these were perfect for it. I can’t recommend these enough.

Brilliant, PLEASE make more!

The fit on these is perfect and the way the pockets are attached to the liner makes them completely secure. Finally a loose fitting short with a chafe-free liner and zero-bounce pockets worthy of ultra training and racing. Please, please don’t change a thing except make more!

Barely there but pockets to spare

This is hands-down my new favorite running short. Wore for a 5 hr run and even in the North Carolina humidity the shorts stayed drier than any other pair I own. No chafe, lots of pockets. I need more!


These are my wife’s go-to shorts.

My marathon shorts! And my everything else shorts!

I love these shorts! I wore them for a marathon this summer, and for all of my long training runs. No chafing as the split is the perfect length. I was soaked from sprayers and sponges by mile 19 of my marathon and I didn’t even start to chafe at that point as these shorts dried so quickly. The waistband stayed in place and there was minimal bounce even when I had the pockets loaded with gels and other items. I have also used them in speed workouts and shorter races as they are so light and flowy. My only suggestion for improvement is to increase the rise of the waistband just slightly so it sits a bit higher on the hips, but this doesn’t detract from my 5 star rating! I can’t recommend them enough, and I looked for a long time to find fun race shorts that had enough storage for me as I do not typically wear vests or belts!


Love these shorts. Three are my 3rd pair, and my absolute favorite pick to run in!

These are my favorite shorts!

These are so lightweight and breezy! I love them. The storage is also unmatched by any other short I have other than the Janji trail short.
