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.

Featherweight and durable, Flyout Stretch Woven was inspired by our Roga fabric and optimized for hot weather running and those who prefer and ultralight fabric. It offers high-stretch, moisture wicking, and quick dry performance for road or trail.

These are so comfy and fit perfectly!!

Chafe Like Crazy

I currently own the long rogas and longer rogas, both of which ride up on my chunky thighs but don't rub. Purchased the featherweight ones as they are advertised as cooler, but ouch, after 7 miles I have a 3 inch by 1 inch chaff marks and a very sore thigh. If I feel the seams on the featherweight rogas, they are a lot rougher than the traditional rogas. Will not buy again and instead stay with the rogas.

Hopefully body glide will address the issue.

Wish I had stuck to original rogas

As a chunky thigh woman, I wish i had stuck with the originals. I bought these as they claim to be cooler, but I found them to be a slightly tighter fit and consequently have chafed my thighs and cut my skin :-(. Will try with some anti-chaff cream but I fear these were a mistake.

almost perfect

What I love:
The length - as a taller woman, this "long" length is just about perfect
The fabric - light weight, not clingy, doesn't ride up, no chafe
The waistband - comfortable, doesn't chafe, and the drawstring is longer than on older rogas, so easier to secure.
The width - a lot of shorts now are really wide/blousy in the legs, and these aren't. The feel sleek without being tight.

What I really don't like - the pocket. It'll hold some gels, sure, but I don't trust it at all with a key. Give us a secure pocket and don't change the other things, and these might actually qualify as perfect.

Sizing: Size 6. I'm 5'9", 138 pounds, nearly 50 (so have a bit of a middle-aged tummy now)
