The Distance Shorts feature a narrower elastic at the waistband as well as a more relaxed waistband measurement. Best of all, this style remains the place where you can enjoy our Breeze Woven which is both lightweight and long-lasting—and made even more special with our latest prints.
- Breeze Woven (polyester / spandex)
- flat waistband with interior drawcord

- 3.25" inseam (all sizes)
These shorts are super lightweight and airy. The fit around the thighs is perfect. Doesn’t cling or feel tight. Would love to see these in more color and pattern options. I actually sized down from my normal size in the roga short.
I don't like the cut or the fabric as much as the non patterned ones. IMO they are not as flattering. The OGs are my all time favorite shorts, so I had high hopes for these, but they are just okay. I will still keep them, I just won't wear them as much as the OGs.
My first pair of Distance shorts finally gave up the ghost. You remember those ones- with the small turquoise drawstrings? These are SUCH an improvement- the same stretchy fabric as the flyout short....meets a VERY comfortable waistband (I'm in the minority, but I love the wider waistband). I first tested them on 5 soggy miles, and I didn't think about them ONCE, in a good way. The fabric just gets out of the way of your legs when it should and still provides a feminine and flattering fit/feel. I came back to buy two more pairs and alas, my size is out! I'm 5'6" and 140 lbs. A size 6 is my jam.
I have been a fan of the distance shorts for a while. The updated version is good, with one flaw. The good: -Great lightweight fabric and print. -All the pockets! Fits all the stuff! -They are a nice length.The not as good: -The waistband is just too wide. I have found it tends to fold over. I also wish there was a drawstring.
The fabric is the same as the shirts and dress (I have and love those too) super light and airy. The waistband is a little tighter than the Flyout short, but not as tight as the Lori Short. So, I thought they fit great. I like the thicker waistband when compared to the older Distance Short. I've run in them a couple times and really like the feel for hot weather. I got my normal Roga size.
I'd rate this a 4.5 if I could. The Distance short is my favorite short of all time. It's all I run in. I like that the new update has the drawstring built in. (I had to ditch my first pair of Distance shorts, which are 4 years old ONLY because the drawstring came out... otherwise they were still good). BUT the new update is TIGHT in the waistband so go up a size. I ordered the size 2. I'm a 103 and 5'2''. It's fine once you get running but walking or just wearing them around the house you can feel how tight they are. I will order these again, but I'll order a 4. I love that these still fit an iPhone. Although in the original distance shorts I kept my phone in the front pocket, but now I find it more comfortable in the back pocket. I get lots of compliments on the fabric design, but I have my fingers crossed for a more plain design to come out. The fabric is also much lighter than the original, which I love. I'll definitely order them again.
I have so far worn these shorts for sleeping, lounging, and most importantly, running. I love them for all of these activities. The fabric is super soft, thin, and fast-drying. Both the butt pocket and hip pocket are big enough to hold my phone. As others have said, the wide elastic within the waistband does tend to fold over a little bit, but it's easy enough to fix, and I don't find that it folds over during activity...just when putting on or taking off. They are so comfortable, I don't even care about this minor inconvenience. Bought the same size that I wear for Rogas.
I love the Roga, I wanted to love this short. Nope. Normal size, fit in hips and thighs, but waist just too tight, elastic rolled, ended up riding really high as a result. Too bad, I loved the pattern and the fabric.
