New Favorite Shorts!
These shorts quickly became my favorite running shorts! I've had these for 5 months now and I still like them as much as I did when I bought them. They don't roll, the fabric is lightweight and wicking and I never have chafed in these. I'm 5'7 and 125 lbs and I bought a size 2.

Anyone who lives in the south and deal with the awful heat and humidity of the summers MUST own these shorts. I don't chafe, they still feel light at the end of a long run in 90% humidity, and they're beautiful duh.

These are my new favorites!
I previously bought two pairs of the Distance shorts (one in Oiselle orange and one in Money green/blue that unfortunately isn't around anymore) which I absolutely love. I was hoping that Oiselle would come out with a split-short like one pair I have, and the Flyout shorts do not disappoint! They're super-light and comfortable (I barely notice them when I'm running in them!!!), and I loved them so much that I bought 2 pairs! I also like how I can fit my phone in the back pockets. :)

- The South
Loose and great fitting...until I started running.
So, first, the good: the fabric of these shorts is super light, was perfect for extra hot and humid weather here in the south. And POCKETS! Those are great. They also have good back-butt coverage, if that's something you look for in shorts.
The bad, or at least the weird: Standing still, these shorts fit great, are loose/relaxed, super comfy. I got my normal size. They're closer in sizing-feel to the distance shorts than the rogas for me. However, when I started running, they really rode up, and did a weird "roll-up my legs, then catch and turn into bloomers" thing. This doesn't happen for me with any other oiselle shorts, and I usually don't really care about a little ride-up, but this was annoying and I was adjusting a lot. I have pretty proportionally sized thighs-butt-quads, and the shorts legs and hips were loose on me, so I couldn't figure out why they rolled this way. I noticed they have a slightly lower/dropped rise than my other oiselle shorts, so maybe that's where it's happening? I wanted to love these, and will see if maybe it was just being extra sweaty from the humidity. I would recommend sizing up if you try them.

New fave shorts
These are fantastic. Lightweight, fits like a dream, barely noticed them while running. I took them out on the first hot-hot day we have had in Palo Alto this year, and they were fantastic. They are stretchy and breathable and flattering. Think a thinner version of the roga fabric. Fantastic shorts. I'm 5 10 and got the 8, they fit great.

How many times can I wear these before I have to put them in the wash? Asking for a friend...
But seriously, these are awesome. Excellent pockets, lightweight fabric/lining, perfect length, love the ample leg holes. They will be perfect for longer marathon-length training runs, nary a chafe in sight. I got my Mac Roga size and they're a little big, but not awkwardly so.
- so light! pockets!

New Favorite Shorts!
I was very excited to get these shorts in the mail. I tried them on and immediately fell in love. I don't have super thing quads and I don't love tight shorts. These fit just perfect. Not too tight and not too loose. They stay in place and look great too. I can't wait to hit the trail in these shorts (right now it's too snowy!)
These shorts are made of the lightest fabric-perfect for hot and humid days. However, within a mile the entire front and back of the legs were bunched up and to the back and I spent the next 5 miles tugging at them. Granted, they are light as a feather and it felt like I was running in just a loin cloth, but it was very concerning to me in a public setting (city route vs trail). I can see these being ideal for someone else, just not for me. The fabric might just be too thin because in the wind they just don't hold up, rather they ride right up.

I bought these wanting something a little more flat than the distance, but more moveable than the roga as it relates to my body type (lots of hips, rump and thighs). I wore them on a three mile run and was so frustrated with the way that the shorts rode up the entire time. There was no stay put in the legs at all.

Absolute favorite Oiselle short
Holy smokes. This is the holy grail.
These shorts are super lightweight, soft, and flow-y. Barely feels like anything's there. This southern Bird appreciates how breathable they are, and I can really stretch my legs in them. I feel perfectly free in them.
One final note, I could fit my iPhone SE in the back pocket. Was not expecting that! Got to snag some great pictures on the trails this weekend because of that bonus.
- Light fabric, loose fit
