TOOLBELT ROGA SHORTS
Pockets on pockets. The original offshoot of the Roga that gave you more storage. Now, that storage is next level with our new 360 Pocket waistband design that combines the security and comfort of a rear zip pocket (for valuables) with the accessibility of an open-edge power mesh pocket everywhere else (for gels, lip balm or what have you) to create the best stow and go running shorts. Whether it’s a long training run, a remote ultra, or just the need to carry all the things, Toolbelt IS the sharpest tool in the shed.

These are my favorite shorts of all time, or at least since 1977, when I started running. I loved the fit and style of the original Rogas, the Rogas that came after those, and the Summer Rogas, but the ability to carry my phone, my keys, a credit card, money, a gel, and now a little bottle of hand sanitizer makes these absolute perfection. I'd love to see a selection of colors like the regular Rogas come in. But I'm not complaining. Or I'm complaining just a tiny bit.
I bought these so I could wear them around in areas where people actually care about the length of my shorts (normally I like my shorts shorter - my favorite shorts are the toolbelt macs). They are great. I am always having to carry things around (phone, keys, masks, snacks...) and the pockets are awesome! Oh and running in them is excellent as well. Super lightweight fabric that dries in the desert heat. They stay put and don't chafe anywhere.
I always wear size 2 and these fit exactly how I expected. They look modest on my 5'4" frame IMO. The cut is flattering for people with small hips and big legs.
I found my forever running shorts. They’re the perfect length and the mesh pockets in front are perfect for holding my phone while I use the zipper for keys, credit card, etc, whatever else I need to carry. Phone doesn’t bounce or fall out, and it doesn’t pull the shorts down either. I check this page daily waiting for Oiselle to restock so I can buy more.
This is THE best short for long runs and marathoning that I've worn in 13 years as a runner. The toolbelt is absolutely perfect and allows you to hold all the things with easy access. I've fit four gels, energy chews, and a key card in my shorts with room to spare. Nothing has ever fallen out and I've never been afraid of that even across hours of running at a time. Have trouble getting your fuel out of a back zippered pocket toward the end of a long run/race? Not anymore! The length is perfect. The colors are beautiful. I highly recommend these shorts.
LOVE. I wear these everyday they are clean. I own 4 pairs (both of these prints + two solid) and I love them. I don't really run but they are the perfect dog walking short: phone fits in front pocket, key to my gate in another and large dog biscuit. Comfortable, flattering (I think), and I'd like to own three more pairs so I can do my wash once a week. LOVE THEM!
I love these toolbelt Rogas- they are flattering, comfortable and hit just right! The only reason I took out a star is the front “toolbelt” portion is open without a zipper. I stashed my phone in the back but I prefer to run with it in the front to minimize bounce. I wouldn’t feel comfortable putting anything really into the mesh pockets except gels, etc. for fear they might fall out. Overall a great short, though!
I ordered a pair of these shorts and have decided they are the perfect running shorts. Stalking the website waiting impatiently for more to be added! (Hint)
I strictly run ultras and so pockets are pretty handy no matter how close together aid stations are. I absolutely loved the color on the floral prints and have been looking for a replacement to some shorts that I have (multiple pairs of, from a major athletic company) that have four pockets. Sadly, these weren’t it for me. I ordered a 6, which is fine in my older shorts (although the 2019 summer rogas are also big), and they felt HUGE. Like the elastic wasn’t stretching at all huge and as I walked around looking in the mirror they were poofy and sort of sliding around my waist. I compared them to an older pair of normal rogas, and they were 1.5 inches wider laying flat (so 3~ inches bigger around). I didn’t bother swapping them for a 4 with my summer 100 canceled but learn from my mistake!
