Release more so I can buy more please!

Absolutely LOVE these shorts. I’ve run (trail and road), and hiked in one pair consistently all summer, and they are hands down, the perfect shorts. The pockets fit just about whatever you may need, don’t run up or cause chafing, and are short enough that I have a reasonable tan line.

Please release more so I can buy another and alternate colors, please!

I'm in love

I had previously bought and worn the 7" and loved them except for one thing: I'm super short (5'1") and they made my legs look like stubby little Vienna sausages. Not the shorts' fault, but still. But now, behold: the 5" are absolutely perfect. The second I put them on, I knew; I was so confident, I even wore them for the very first time to a BAA race, because I just knew they'd work great. Ever since, I wear them for running, hiking, running around with my kids, etc. I LOVE them.

Great Running Shorts

I bought these for the extra pockets. Love the deep side pockets for extra phone protection. Very comfortable waistband. Moisture wicking.

Awesome

Can't wait for the next release of these. Somehow just feel like that much lighter than the 7in.

Fits perfectly!

These are so comfortable. The inseam is the perfect length for me: not too short but not terribly long. The grips keep them staying put, and they aren’t very heavy material at all. Light but not see through. Perfect for a long summer run!

My Favorite running shorts. Don't ride up. In the coastal color they do show some sweat . Fit true to sizing.

The amazing pace short, now in a shorter (for summer and us shorter folks) 5" length!

I love my pair! Like the 7" pace short, I love basically everything: the side pockets, internal rear card/key pocket, the pass through shirt/phone pocket in the outer rear, the drawstring, the silicone dots to keep the short in place -- zero riding up ever, without needing to readjust at all!

With the hot summer coming, I was keen to try this shorter version --- I was very pleased to find the length is still great for ensuring absolutely no thigh chafing on long runs (one of the key reasons I tend to do runs 8mi and longer in compressive shorts). One thing I've noticed: the new drawstring holder stitching is an amazing touch, but I've found that stitching to be a bit tight relative to the stretch of the full shorts material (hopefully this can be improved in future iterations!)

Game changers!

I have never found fitted running shorts I liked until this updated version of the Pace shorts! These stay put (don’t ride up and don’t slide down even with things in both pockets) which is a miracle. I love the updated dot grippies! I’m between sizes but sized up to a M because I like things slightly less tight. Please keep making these! Both the 5” and 7” are awesome.
