Firecracker Shorts Mini
From day to evening - these are your compression shorts with reflective benefits. And drop in pockets, at the leg and waistband. 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. This season, we added mini shorts to the collection, to round out all the options.
The first version of these shorts had 2 side pockets, the second version had one side pocket and the latest version has 0 side pockets. You’re moving in the wrong direction. I also loved the fit of the previous version and the fit of these is nowhere near the same. The waist band is oddly tight and there isn’t much stretch.
Upside - the reflective quality. But that’s it.
I have 3 pairs of these shorts! 2 from last year and 1 this year. This years version is different- the pocket is in the back, waist area, my phone didn’t fall out but it also didn’t feel secure. I had to keep checking to make sure it didn’t fall out and readjusting because it was never in the right spot. I miss the pocket on the side, which was last years style. My phone was easily accessible and felt secure.
Also, the waist, maybe because the pocket is up there, but I can barely pull this over my thighs without hearing rips. There’s no stretch at all, and once up, the waist is too loose. I didn’t have this issue with my other pair. I ordered the same size in the old and newer version.
I love the idea of these shorts, reflective, held a phone, which was easily accessible and so comfortable but this newer model is just not the same.
