A new, lightweight stretch woven (think half way between Distance and Roga Shorts), simple, easy access pockets, a roomy fit with a flattering hem, and voila - the Summer Roga Shorts have arrived. All this may pale in comparison to a single fact: Dr. Lesko says, "It's my favorite new short." The doctor knows.

Summer Perfection Achieved

Can I give this ten million stars? Seriously. I live in hot-as-heck, Texas, and these are SO perfect for summer running. The fabric manages to wick away sweat while staying incredibly lightweight. The fit is ever so slightly more loose (in a good way) than the traditional Roga.
During one of my first runs in these, I had to reach down to make sure I was still wearing bottoms! These are now the shorts I reach for first. Keep these coming!

These shorts are incredible. Hands down my favorite running shorts ever. Super light, super comfy, not too tight or too loose. I usually wear a size 2 or 4, and size 4 was perfect - would not go down. Buying more ASAP. You will not regret buying these.

Favorite Running Shorts

I love my regular Rogas, but love these even more. The fabric is light and silky and, while my regular Rogas sometimes ride up a bit, these drape perfectly and don't ride up at all. My usual size 6 was spot on - I'm 5'4" and about 128 lbs, with a 37" hip measurement. Hope to see these available in more colors soon.

Favorite Roga!

The Summer Rogas are the bomb right out of the package! The material is definitely thinner and more lightweight than my regular Roga shorts. The cut feels roomier in the thigh which is great for myself and any other runner with amazing quads. I think I'm in love and I haven't even run in them yet.
For size reference, I'm 5'1", 132 lbs., muscular legs and the size 6 fits perfect.

These are the best shorts I've ever had in 25 years of running. Lightweight and they never chafe.

  • Perfect for summer, and they have pockets.

Best. Shorts. Ever.

I have been searching for summer running shorts for over 2 years. I have tried many varieties with varying degrees success, but never "just right". These are perfect in every category. I am 48, 5 ft 2 inches and muscular. Fit is hard for me. I wanted something flattering, but not overly tight or revealing. The fabric is also sort of magical, it did not ride up but was lightweight and comfortable. I love these shorts! Thanks to your meticulous designers.

Runs larger than regular rogas

The good: lightweight fabric, great ventilation with the mesh panels, love the colors (Coast is a little less bright than appears on screen).

I wanted to love these for the above reasons, but the fit was off for me. These run larger than the regular rogas, but I bought them in my normal size 6 because the regular rogas are already pretty fitted. I'm 5'3 and 130 lbs. Unfortunately, the summer roga 6's fit but rode up a lot when I ran. These are now gym-only shorts for me. I'm not sure if I could size down to a 4 and don't want to risk the shipping/return costs.

The Best

I love these shorts. I got them in slate and the color is great--different without being flashy. I first ordered the 4s which fit well at the waist but were tight across my thighs/butt, so I now have a 6 even though the waist is slightly too big (I'm 5'6" and 135 pounds with an athletic build) but I don't mind using the drawstring.

Best shorts ever!

I've tried the regular rogas before, and they're not super flattering on bigs hips! But these are the jam!
So if you're like me, and struggle with your waist being smaller than your hips and behind... these are definitely for you.
Hope these are here to stay!

Love these shorts

These shorts are wonderful! They're super lightweight and just the right length and looseness for a good summer run. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs and the 4 was a great fit. I ordered a 4 in the Roga and Roga Toolbelt and both are smaller in their fit around the thighs/hips/butt than this style for the same length (Roga being the smallest).

  • Lightweight, length, fit
  • Inconsistent sizing to other Rogas

I have been wearing Rogas for years and thought they pretty much could not be improved upon, but I was wrong!! Love, love, love these. The fabric is so light and silky. Absolutely perfect for super humid Florida. Ever so slightly roomier than regular Rogas but no need to size down. More colors please!!

  • Fabric, fit, feel. Pretty much everything
  • The drawstring. Like all Rogas, it is scratchy and I'll probably end up pulling it out.

Best Running Shorts!

I just bought these shorts and have worn them three times now. They are the best running shorts I've ever tried! As someone who normally wears exercise clothes from mid-quality, fast fashion chains I have to say it is completely worth it to spend a bit more at a specialty store.
These shorts are so lightweight and comfortable but don't make you feel like you are wearing nothing. The lining is the best because it's a thin mesh so it doesn't rub against the thigh crease or hold in sweat.

  • The lining and fit
  • The tie on the inside is an awkward thickness and length

Best Rogas yet!

I have a pair of the regular Rogas and they give a fierce wedgie. I can't wear them due to constantly rearranging them. I love that the Summer Rogas don't give you a wedgie (I just ran 10 miles an drew was so happy with them!) I love that they are ever so slightly bigger than the regular Rogas. (Size 4 Rogas are too small so I went with 6, slightly too big) the underwear liner fits fully over he cheek, and have enough elastic so that they stay put. Summer Rogas size 4 are perfect. Would love more colors, would love to see them available year round!

  • The under wear liner had enough elastic to feel like they weren't stretched out and fully covered the butt.
  • Not enough colors!!

Improved Rogas

Keep this style! I have not been a big roga fan until these shorts. They are sized slightly larger, and I'm between sizes so the fit is PERFECT. They are light and airy...great for Houston's swampy weather. And they look great...mom and sister both complimented the shorts. Best part - they DO NOT RIDE UP!! always an issue i've had with roga shorts.

Roga Light for Humid Days

How could Oiselle improve upon a good thing? Make it lighter. (Please note the mesh detailing on sides and back -- good stuff!). I recently moved to the South and I know I will be grabbing these rogas for our notoriously humid days. I also know I will appreciate them when it's "just hot." Highly recommended!

Curvy Girl in Love

The cut of the shorts is perfect for this curvy girl. The regular Rogas sometimes ride up but these have been amazing and so light. These will be my go-to summer shorts.

I'm a huge fan of the roga shorts, and love the summer rogas! They're cute and comfy. I like that the liner fits like underwear, so no underwear needed.

Step Aside Roga Shorts!

Ever since I tried on Rogas in 2013, they have been my short of choice. I have tried to add Distance Shorts or Stride Shorts into the mix, but my love for the Rogas always wins out. But the Summer Rogas. O. MY. They are amazing! So lightweight and breathable. I bought one pair unsure about if they could compare to my beloved Rogas and have promptly purchased the other two colors after wearing them today. I even told my friend she had to try running them after I washed them because I love them so much. A must have in every runner's wardrobe!

  • the lightweight, breathable feel
  • they may run slightly larger than Rogas, but I still stuck to my same size
