These are the best. All I wanted was shorts that would stay up and keep items from bouncing around -- which is exactly what these do. The fabric is pretty thick, not the most ideal for summer, but once they're on I'm so happy to have them stay rock-solid that I don't care that they're thick. The high but super-wide waistband holds my phone with zero bounce and doesn't cut into me uncomfortably. Everything I wanted.
I always appreciate reviews for sizing guidance - I'm 5' 10" and 196 lbs and bought a size 12 which fit perfectly. They are flattering, comfortable and I have found myself lounging in them all day in addition to running and participating in dance classes with no riding up. I also wore them for a road trip in which I drove hours at at time, sitting in these with no issues at all. The compression is perfect without being too tight - no irritation where the bands are and the waistband is thick with plenty of places to leave keys, cards, money, snacks. I had high expectations for these shorts and they exceeded my expectations.
These shorts really are amazing. I just came back on to buy another pair, and am so sad they are all sold out! The only reason I docked them a star is because of the inseam is in kind of a weird place that makes your inner thigh look less than perfect. The fit is outstanding, and I didn't buy them to stand around in - I bought them to run, far - so it's kind of a moot point!
Purchased the shorts from a local privately owned running store and they have a great fit - fits to the body but doesn't feel restricting. Length of short is perfect and you can tell the fabric is of top quality. Would highly recommend for running, walking, hiking or simply just to wear. I typically don't write reviews but did feel compelled to share my feedback to help someone else with a potential purchase.
I bought a pair of these last year and they quickly became my favorite everything shorts. Perfect for running, plain enough to wear around town with casual clothes, and the pockets are great.
I decided to get a second pair during a sale and bought an 8 (my usual/previous size). They feel a full size smaller than the ones I own, and pretty snug around the waist. There's a chance last year's pair just stretched out a lot (and I'm keeping this pair and hoping they'll stretch—easier than returns during COVID precautions), but my recommendation is to size up.
Despite the size issues, still my favorite shorts.
Love these shorts! They never, ever ride up (usually an issue for me) and the pockets are awesome. I have worn these for my long training runs while training for a 50K without chafing or issues.
These are seriously my new favorite shorts. I always have trouble with my shorts riding up on the legs/thighs or falling down on my waist/crotch but these stayed in place so well without being too tight or sticking to my skin. I didn't have to pinch or pull them on, the fabric is a nice spandex blend that's breathable. The waistband pockets are a good size for keys and phone. I am 5'10 170 lbs and got a size 8, they fit really nicely, not too long. I ordered black and dark blue, neither shows sweat noticeably (dark blue a little but not bad).
I did a 12 mile trail run in the shorts today and had 2 gels and my small apple cellphone in the pockets. Next run I will include chapstick and Kleenex... I wonder if I could put a water flask in there? The shorts did not sag. Couldn’t believe it. I wore a size 8, 145 lbs. My waist is slightly bigger... maybe that helped... but now I want all the colors.
