From day to evening - these are your compression shorts with reflective benefits. . Made with the much-loved Plya™ Compression, our Firecracker Collection is wildly popular for anyone running in the early morning hours, after dark, or through all the stormy weather like we have in Seattle. Featuring an all-over reflective bird print, and a waistband pocket to hold everything you need on the run.
I absolutely love the high waist and the back zip pocket. What would make this short even better are pockets on the side, the front pocket is a bit weird. Otherwise super comfy, i love the color and look.
Overall this is a solid short. The green color and print are adorable and the short itself is very comfortable. There are also tons of accessible pocket options. The only problem I ran into is I think I'm just a little between sizes. The size I ordered is only minimally compressive and does ride up a little; however I think the next size down probably would be too small. I still anticipate very regular use on shorter runs but probably wouldn't be able to use for longer runs. May try a size down next time.
Love the classic Oiselle birds on these shorts, especially how they are reflective! The green color is very pretty and just edges outside the realm of a neutral. I did find them to be not terribly compressive and a little loose in the waist but I think I may just fall in between sizes unfortunately. Overall I expect these to be pretty regular in my shorts rotation for shorter runs.
The fit is great on these- very comfortable with enough compression and no ride up- and the storage is fantastic! I love the inner zip pocket so my phone feels extra secure while still leaving plenty of room for gels, etc. Unlike other pocket systems, this accommodates the bigger gels well so I can skip the fuel belt on those really long runs and races.
