Found my marathon shorts!

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.

Rides a bit too much

I really wanted to love these shorts. I Love the reflectiveness and the material that they're made out of and they're super comfy when I'm standing still. However the problem in lies when I run. They ride way up my thighs where it looks like I'm not even wearing any shorts after the first couple of steps at a fast pace. I spend the entire run trying to pull down my shorts around my thighs again. Super frustrating and distracting. I put these in the pile for weight lifting shorts now so bummed because they are so cute on. I just wish they stayed put.

Great shorts

I love these. the length is perfect. As others mentioned, they do feel a bit thin and the waist is snug- but both in good way! I find a lot of compression shorts too heavy and snug in the thighs (giving an ugly and uncomfortable thigh squeeze) and the waistline is high and tight enough to where I feel comfortable and confident in the way it sucks my abdomen in. I've had 3 kids, including a set of twins so I really value that protection of my tummy :) I bought 2 more pairs after buying my first. Mostly used for running, with the pockets up top, good for long runs (12-20miles). No chaffing

Interesting Fit, But Good Shorts

The waistband it stiff so it is a little bit difficult to pull the shorts over my hips, but once they are around my waist they are loose. I use these shorts for weight lifting so this does not really bother me, but if I was running in them and using the pockets I think it would be annoying. Overall I like them for working out and I would get another pair.
