O-Mazing Power Shorts

FG icon


Compression shorts lovers: if you know, you know! That just-right fit is a combination of fabric, fit, and features. And these are a trifecta: Power Plya™ is thicker than our classic Plya, with all the support needed to hold you in. The fit of the legs have been thought through, providing more coverage in the back where needed. And our signature 360 degree pocket design makes it easy for you to store keys, fuel, or a phone -- front, back or side. Simply O-mazing for all activities, near and far.


• Interior drawcord
• 360 waistband pocket
• 5" inseam (all sizes)


• Power Plya (polyester / spandex)

Size down if they ride up

I've run all summer in my 2-years old o-mazing stride shorts and they were riding up my legs - not too much, but enough to be annoying. Decided to size down, so I got these on sale. I have no idea if there's *any* difference between "o-mazing power shorts" and older "o-mazing stride shorts" - couldn't identify any. However, they do NOT ride up at all and are very comfortable. They'll be my go-to next year!

Not much compression, just enough that they stay in place. The waist band is great, flat and comfy.
No secure pocket, so I'd be a little concerned if I carried my car key in there, but I use my bra for that. I also have never lost anything (usually carrying tissues and lip balm). They would be PERFECT if they had a little zipped pocket *somewhere* like the dart knickers. Or a loop to attach a key ring.

Oh and more solid colors, pretty please?

Sized down, riding up fixed

I’m always looking for the perfect pair of compression fit shorts with a length that’s a little shorter than the joggers but still have pockets, and these are my favorites. I love the power plya material and wanted to make these shorts work. I originally bought a size 4 and had the same issue as other reviewers with the riding up on my legs and a loose waistband by the end of my run. I’m a 2 in rogas and a 4 in the 2020 version of the pocket joggers. I sized down to a 2 and now they comfortably stay in place.

Really great, simple shorts with the storage I need

These are fantastic! I live in the south and I sometimes find my beloved pocket joggers a little too warm for humid runs, but these are fantastic! I did not find that they moved much as some previous reviews mentioned. The pocket situation is perfect. I really hope Oiselle keeps making these, and the blue print with the bird is so fun!

So much storage

I used to run with a SPI belt and ran a race that the belt would not stay in place. I purchased these after that situation and they are a game changer! I wore these shorts for a full marathon and the storage was amazing. I never want to run with a belt again after wearing these!
