FIRECRACKER REFLECTIVE SHORTS
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, the styles have a flattering asymmetrical waistband - and reflective daring dots print.
- Plya Interlock (poly / spandex)
- all-over reflective print
- interior drawcord
- side waist pocket
- side leg pocket
- 3.5" inseam (all sizes)
As an early morning runner, I was excited to try these for their reflectiveness. I have a size 4 in other Oiselle shorts/pants and they fit great. These however creep up to the point of being uncomfortable. I don't know if a size down would work better, but these sadly are not workable, especially for longer runs.
Loved the reflective part because drivers are nuts around my area and try to turn into you when they turn into gas stations and what not. The waist came up high enough to give me some confidence, but the shorts also rode up as I ran. Usually this is okay in the winter, but in a Texas summer it's going to give me chaffing. I did not chaff this time around, but I did have to keep stopping to pull them down.
Wore this on my run this morning, and it was amazing! I was dripping with sweat but the shorts stayed cool and dry, and my phone stayed dry too. My favorite thing might be the pockets… both sides fit my phone (iPhone 12 mini) completely, with no sagging or pulling. I usually run with a waist pack so this felt so liberating, especially in the Midwest humidity. Bottoms rolled during the run, but I expected it at this inseam length on my thighs. This is my first Oiselle purchase, and these shorts have made me a lifelong fan!
