super comfy and flowy!

I have thick thighs, and was looking for summer-friendly shorts that are cute. I didn’t expect much from these, but they are so comfy AND don’t ride up!! Love the pockets as well.

Surprisingly Great Shorts

I was hiking in the Grand Teton NP and bought these at the REI Co-Op store to have another pair of shorts--w/ no expectations. To my surprise, the liner of the shorts do not ride up. This is a rarity for me. I have an hourglass shape and a lot of shorts ride up with you have a small waist but with normal hips. I ordered a second pair. They are awesome to run and hike in! I am between a small/ medium normally and wear a small in these.

Great warm weather gear

It finally got hot where I live (which means temps in the 70s with humidity), and these shorts, paired with the run all day tank are my new favorite summer running kit. Quick-dry, no stick, and looks great too.

Cadence 4" Short

Love these shorts! They fit me so well, can barely feel them on me during my runs. They have the right amount of coverage and are my favorite go-to!

Fabulous shorts!

Love these shorts, I have 3 pairs now! Indiana has no shortage of humid days where dew point and temperature nearly match, too that with being a person who perspires heavily and there is swamp ass galore. No short can keep up with that wicking, there’s no where for the water to go, but they have not chaffed me on 20+mile runs one bit! I also love the cut and fit. They have enough stretch for a post run yoga session and the higher waist is comfortable and not feeling like I’m spilling over the top on the occasional “poofy” day.
The only thing I might change is a small zipper pocket or key leash, nobody wants to loose their car key on a trail, but I have a feeling you have a performance reason for leaving out this detail, and I have other resources for this problem..

Great comfortable shorts!

These are the only running/every day shorts my daughter wears. We bought some a year ago, this purchase was to replace them because they were very worn.

Best go to adventure shorts

Swim, bike, run run run till the sun goes down. These shorts are quick dry and super light without showing off your assets. I am buying two more pairs asap.

Perfect shorts

Perfect length, versatile, super lightweight, flattering fit.
I am usually size M but intentionally buy L for running shorts-I like them looser

Best Shorts Ever!

These shorts are my new favorite! They are loose without being baggy. The length is perfect. The pattern is so pretty! My absolute favorite is the built in phone pocket!!! No more need for a run belt! I also appreciate the elastic at the waist to tighten when I have a phone in the back pocket. Not just for running, these shorts are my new summer casual go-to.
