In 2004 we began our quest for non-poofy running shorts. Since its original debut, the Rogas have evolved with lighter fabric, improved waistband, additional pockets, lengths, and prints, but our pursuit to make the best pair of running shorts for women remains unchanged.
Longer Roga Shorts
The Longer Roga Shorts exceeded my expectations. I was leery at first because Roga shorts in general have been unpredictable in sizing but I took a chance on these. I am glad I did! They are just the right length for running, hiking, coaching, walking the dog, etc. These are the perfect shorts for my weekends spent coaching at cross country meets. There is a slight "winging" at the hem, but much better than the Long Rogas. I really love these and find that they're now my go-to shorts. I'm tempted to buy a second pair and remove the liner and wear them over a padded cycling liner for mountain biking. The stretch is awesome yet still crisp looking. I ordered black in my usual size. For reference, I am 5'6" and have fabric eating upper inner thighs and wear a 6. I opt for a loose waist band to accomodate the leg fit. Don't bypass these shorts if you want a great, versatile, quick drying, comfy pair of shorts.
I have not worn them yet. They seem a little large and I’m trying to decide whether to take the tags off and try or return.
These are my favorite shorts! The liner was a bit weird at first, but I've actually come to like it as it keeps the shorts in place - no riding up or sagging. I've got some extra hip and thigh baggage so I love the longer length. Please make more colors and I'll buy them all!
I purchased 3 pair of shorts, one of them being the Longer Roga Shorts. I wore that pair and noticed that they were way too big. When I came home and compared the 3 pair, this pair was mismarked and must have been 2 sizes bigger. I sent an email to ask for an exchange and a new pair were shipped the same day. The other 2 pair were not the longer shorts so I can’t really give an accurate review. I think I would have loved them if they hadn’t been mismarked. However, the customer service was outstanding!!
