FEATHERWEIGHT LONG ROGA SHORTS
Our lightest shorts go long! These are the Rogas you'll want for hot weather and steamy workouts. The 4-way stretch woven moves with you and helps water and heat evaporate quickly. The waistband is made from our Plya™ Compression, and includes a large rear mesh pocket. The pocket is reinforced with a bar tack and stretch binding, so you can feel secure carrying a phone or fuel.
- Flyout Stretch Woven (nylon/spandex)
- Plya Compression waistband (polyester/spandex)
- Mighty Mesh pockets on back waistband
- Built-in technical liner
- interior drawcord
- 6" inseam (all sizes)
Just completed 5 hrs of yard work in 90 degree weather, these were awesome. Truly, ordering another pair now. So much better than regular rogas.
I'm a fan of both the long Rogas and the long Flyout shorts, and have been wishing for a hybrid to combine the best of both...and wow here it is! I love the sleeker leg and back pocket of the Rogas, but fell in love with the lightweight material of the Flyout shorts. On hot and humid days the Rogas feel too heavy--and the fabric on several of my Rogas have snagged. But I found that although the fabric on the Flyouts don't snag, the blousier leg tends to ride up periodically on longer runs or during less humid weather (for some reason they stay down for me when the humidity is high, lol). And the side pocket of the Flyout is pretty useless for your phone because of all the bouncing.
Then these shorts came along.... with the lighter, less snaggy material, the sleeker cut, and an even better back pocket! This pocket is an improvement over the zip pocket IMO, because it's slightly easier to access your phone while running, and the mesh helps immensely to keep my phone from becoming sweat soaked, which happens a lot with the Rogas. I feel like the phone does bounce/slide just a tiny bit more in these shorts than the Rogas, but nothing that makes me fearful it will come out. Sizing seems consistent with last year's Rogas (I'm on the border between a 4 and a 6 on Oiselle's size chart, and much prefer the fit of the size 4 in the Rogas). I bought two pairs with a coupon, and would definitely buy more in the future. :)
