What would a trail bird want? As in someone who doesn't just move their legs forward and backward, but also laterally, vertically, side-stepping, skipping and leaping! These shorts were designed for total freedom. You asked for a good old fashioned split leg short, but with an O twist. Our solution: an integrated semi-split with our signature flyout hem. And an overall relaxed fit for maximum mobility.
Also available in the 6" inseam Long Flyout Shorts.
- Flyout Stretch Woven (nylon/spandex)
- interior infinity drawcord
- two side hand pockets
- 3.5" inseam (all sizes)
I ordered the same size as I wear in the roga‚Äôs And love how light weight they are! The ONLY issue I had with them is the waist band elastic flipped over on itself and it refuses to lay flat. I don‚Äôt have flat abs so I am used to issues like this, but if the elastic weren‚Äôt quite so wide maybe it wouldn‚Äôt flip so easily. Otherwise they are amazing!
Jesus Oiselle I can't afford to fall in love with any more of your shorts. I thought Rogas were my shorts for life. Then the distance short became my summer best friend. Then the pocket jogger gives me all the long run feels. But now I'm LIVING in this flyout short (in the purple..trust me...gorgeous). I received the package on a Sunday and spent the night lounging in them. I wore them on a run on Monday, then to a core class. I had to wash them on Tuesday to wear for my track workout on Wednesday.
That said, I know I'll use my Rogas/Pocket Joggers for longer runs just to avoid wearing a flip belt.
I got a size 4 but probably could have gone with a size 2 (5'5", 127, athletic thighs)
Favorite new shorts. Actually, favorite shorts ever. Did a very hot hill repeat workout in them and didn't think about them once. Bought my usual size four and they fit perfect.
Is it acceptable to wear these every day? Asking for a friend...
I thought the Distance shorts were the best shorts O made... and then I bought these and they're even more incredible. For reference, I'm 5'7"; and 150lb and wear a 4 but a 6 would have worked too. No chafing, super lightweight, large leg holes (perfect for squats, ya know?). Also, you know how when other shorts get wet, they stick to your legs and cause problems? These don't!! Water repelled right off and my workout felt so fast. More gear in this Flyout please!!
I have two pairs of these, a pair from about 2 years ago that has two pockets, and a pair that I got about 3 months ago - only one rear pocket. Wish they still had two back pockets! Fabric is a bit different between the two (both are black so it was v. obvious the fabric was different). They are very lightweight with a nice breathability. The waist is pretty tight/fitted, but the shorts are very airy. I'm 5'2", 110 lbs and wear a size 2 in these.
One thing that happens to me in these shorts (both old and new...)...on long, hot runs, my sweat collects into the crotch/back area and then just sort of...sprinkles off as I run. No one else mentioned this so maybe I just sweat A LOT. That being said, I've never had that happen in a single other pair of any brand of shorts I own, so it was very noticeable. It's not bad (it's kind of cooling - hahaha) but it's a strange sensation. :)
I have been a long time fan of my Oiselle Roga shorts, and hesitated to try something new with the Flyout shorts. I'm glad I took the risk as I *might* just like these even more than the Rogas! They are extremely light weight and great for super sweaty summer runs. I love that I can fit my phone in the back pocket, although don't recommend running with a phone as it bounces too much since the shorts are loose fitting. They provide only just enough coverage that I feel comfortable wearing them to lift (Crossfit) as well as running.
I am 5'6"and 135 pounds and have found the size 4 to be a perfect fit, but don't have a lot of extra room. I wear size 6 in my Rogas which fit a bit loose.
Very breathable and comfortable. So airy and light I feel like I have nothing on! I love the large rear pocket. The waist band is snug but comfortable and the fabric moves with you. I have worn these trail running in 90 degree temps and 80% humidity and somehow they stay dry. For reference, I am 5'2" and 105-110lbs and the size 2 fit perfect.
I have been on the hunt for running shorts that don't suffocate my legs and are comfortable around my waist (and aren't ridiculously short which I have found to be the problem with other brands) - and these are the best shorts I have found! I LOVE them! For reference - I am 5'4 about 120 lbs. I prefer my shorts to fit comfortably rather than tight.. couldn't ask for a better pair of running shorts! Thank you Oiselle!
