POCKET JOGGER SHORTS
The women have spoken and they want two things: pockets and multiple lengths in shorts. We're here to serve - and believe the new Pocket Jogger Shorts are case in point. Made from our soft, stretchy, yet hold-you-in Nyelle™ fabric (just like the original Pocket Jogger Capris), plus all those pockets! Five pockets to be exact - three along the rear waistband (including one zip) and two on the side legs. Whether you're running, racing, or pocket jogging - these babies are ready to roll. Long Pocket Jogger Shorts also available.
- Nyelle Compression (nylon/spandex)
- interior drawcord
- rear zip waist pocket
- rear side mesh pockets
- 2 leg pockets that fit phone
- 4.75" inseam (all sizes)
- constructed with Bluesign Approved Fabrics
So like many others here, I had a an earlier version and went back to buy several more pairs in the same size, and the waistband was painful and barely had any elasticity. I ended up cutting the drawstring and ripping it out of the shorts, which worked. I've had to do the same with other other bottoms too, all in my normal size. Besides the drawstring being too small, the fit is perfect. It seems like it's a totally different drawstring material than the earlier bottoms I've purchased.
Wow I just love these! They fit so well--- I wear a size 4 in shorts from Oiselle, although the waist band is a little tight. Took the suggestion and grabbed these in a 6 and I love them! Soft yet strong, HUGE pockets (My phone and hand can fit in there easily! ) They were a smidge longer on me than I had mentally pictured but they still look good. Grabbing more, though probably in basic black again because I am boring like that!
I bought a pair of the shorts this summer in the color empire. Like other reviewers have said, the waist band is SO TIGHT. So tight it literally gives me a stomach ache when i wear them running, or just around the house. Everything else about the shorts i love, the length, fabric, pockets, and fit everywhere else. But the waist band is just too much and makes them unwearable. I kept the shorts thinking they would stretch out after i wore them for a few runs - but i'm afraid no amount of wear will get this waist band to a comfortable level. Sad because i wish i could return them now and try a size up. However, from other reviewers it seems even sizing up doesn't fix the fit issue. Hope they can make a design tweak on the waist band because i really love everything else about them.
These are a lot tighter at the waist than previous versions and also longer. They go above my belly button, where my last pair sit comfortably underneath. Bring back the last style!
I absolutely love these shorts. The positives: The pockets are deep enough that when running they won't fall out. The back zipper pocket is large enough to hold your phone as well, but I keep my keys in them. There are 2 other hip pockets that would be better for gels. Tried my lip balm but it kept falling out every time I had to pee. It also has the inside drawcord which is helpful if you're carrying a heavy phone. The negatives: the sizing sucks and quality control. I had to return two shorts already do to sizing. I ordered a 2 and it was more like a 4. On these shorts I order a 4 on the plastic bag it came in said a 4 but the tag on the shorts were an 8! I've had to pay shipping twice for poor quality control. What also is bad business is they don't have a number you can call!!!
Great shorts for running, hiking, taking the pup to the beach, some post work out yoga, making pancakes and dancing around the kitchen. I love the amount, size, and placement of the pockets - its really nice to be able to fit a phone easily into a side pocket & know that it will stay in there. The fabric is thick, sturdy, and soft. I tend to prefer somewhat lighter fabrics, but these feel like they will stand up to some abuse. Would love to see this in more colors, and reflective versions!
Other reviewers mentioned a tight waistband, so I sized up and they fit perfectly overall. They stay in place without squeezing. The higher rise gives more pocket space :)
I bought a size 6 which is usually very comfy if not big for me and the waistband was actually painful.
I read a bunch of reviews that warned that the waistband was uncomfortably tight, but I decided to give it a try anyway. That was a mistake. I want to love these shorts, but I really really dislike them. I hoped they would get more comfortable as I wear them more often, but it's not happening. The material of shorts is nice and heavy duty, and the pockets are great. The waistband though is much thicker than the rest of the short. I could deal with that, but then in addition to the extra thick material, there is a band of elastic around the middle that hits above my belly button. The elastic is significantly tighter than the rest of the shorts! Not only is it super uncomfortable, but also very unflattering. And let's be honest part of what I love about the wonderful suctioning fabric of running pants and shorts is that they pull everything in and make me feel sleek and fast. These really have the opposite effect and it's a real bummer :(
