sustainability

Groundwork Knit is made using a premium grade nylon that has a significantly tighter woven filament than standard synthetics. Tighter filaments mean less microfiber shedding in the wash-cycle, plus greater durability of the garment (longer lifespan, more wearing).

Groundwork Knit fabric is also bluesign® certified meaning it is free from harmful chemicals and is fabricated in a way that meets a high environmental standard.

Pockets, pockets, pockets!

I ran a marathon and made a rookie mistake: I couldn't find my running belt on the morning of the race. Luckily, I could fit everything I wanted to carry in these shorts (4 gels, 2 packets of energy chews, 1 packet of salt tabs, and single-use (biodegradable) wipes). Amazing. Bounce-free. No chafing issues.

Excellent Running Shorts

I won these shorts in a giveaway! They are comfortable, the perfect length and they don't ride up when I run. I will be buying more!

Nothing new for marathon...except these shorts!

So, I knew I was going to be carrying a bit more than usual for the NYC marathon this weekend so I panic ordered a pair of these shorts about a week out from race day, and ended up getting so sick I couldn't test-drive them. Instead, I tore the tags off yesterday morning at dawn and prayed they'd be perfect. THEY WERE PERFECT. No budge, deep and sturdy side pocket(s) for my phone, and I loved how the back waistband pocket was able to fit all of my gels, spread across my back. It was 70-something degrees and NO chafe, either, which is a miracle in and of itself. Highly highly recommend.

Awesome to hear–a huge congrats on the race Jillian!

I love these shorts. The length is perfect. The pockets are wonderful. My phone fits in the side pockets and doesn’t bounce. The silicone on the bottoms keeps them from riding up a ton. They inch up a slight amount on the bottom but stay put much better than any other bike short style shorts I’ve tried. The one thing I think could be improved is the drawstring. It is so hard to tie. I have muscular thighs and butt and smaller waist, so I would love to be able to tie the drawstring tighter. I found these to run true to size.

Marathon Approved!

I love these shorts! I've been using them for a while, but just recently put them to the ultimate test - running a marathon in them, and they held up so well! I know the reviews says these run small, but I don't agree, or maybe I like that they run small! I'm between a M & L and actually originally got a L, but the M fit much better. I'd say especially if you are going to use the pockets (for a phone, multiple GUs, etc) and you're between sizes, definitely size down. They stay in place great, and I fit 8 GUs and my keys with no issues. I have put my phone in the pocket and it works, but its not my favorite place to keep my phone because it still slightly bounces around. Overall, love these! Have them in 2 sizes and great especially if you have thicker thighs!

Great climbing and cycling shorts!

Love these! I like that they are long enough to wear a harness comfortably in, as well as good for bike rides. They are breathable, don't ride up, sit nicely on my waist, and are not see-through. Great shorts.

The best athletic shorts I’ve ever bought

I absolutely LOVE these shorts! I bought them in Batik purple and got the matching cap and long bra. I am an avid kayaker and these are my go-to shorts for kayaking. They are comfortable, move easily with me without feeling tight or restrictive, quick drying, and they don’t ride up my legs due to the non-slip silicone lining in the leg seams. I will be buying more in other colors, they’re well worth the money for me.

Perfect length, cozy fabric, great pockets! Love the grips at the thigh. I’m 5”2 and an athletic build size 4 and I went with the medium and the fit is awesome.

Love these for running

This is my second pair! They have become my favorite for running. I can fit card and keys in the back pocket, phone and collapsible water water in the two side pockets. I am 5’10”, 145 lbs- I usually wear a small to medium- I prefer the medium in the shorts and a small in the pants for the groundwork pace style.

Great Features!

I recently wore these for a 30K trail run & they were perfect! Deep pockets for gels, the slot in the back to securely hold my shirt when the temperature warmed & they stayed put. These shorts don’t rise as you run!! I have 3 pair, maybe I need more!🤔😆
