First, our Plya™ Compression fabric is lightweight and supportive; second, this two pocket system, with one drop in pocket and one zip pocket, means you have all the options while on the go. And then the leg inseam, with coverage that will have you feeling snappy and secure.

I pretty much don't buy any tights or shorts without a generous pocket, and I was bummed that this pocket was so tiny! Might fit a car key, but that's about it. Loved the fabric--- would love to see a short in this fabric with lots more functional pockets in the future.
I'll echo what other reviewers have said. Love the shorts--comfy, don't ride up, great fabric. The hip pocket is not good for a phone though and that's what I want it for. Too high up so my iphone sticks out at the top. Can't wear a hydration belt with them because of that. Pocket would be fine for a gel maybe but it should be lower for anything with bulk.
I have worn the Flyte Shorts (they fall down on long runs because I am a heavy sweater - weird but true) and the Pocket Joggers (way too tight in the waistband, material is too thick) and these things hit the perfect stride. Fits true to size! (I'm 130lb, size 6) Great fabric, doesn't ride up, doesn't dig into my waistline. Love it, Oiselle! Thank you!
I love so much about these shorts, the length, the waistband, the fabric. The hip pocket is a huge problem for me though. I always take my phone on runs for safety and audiobooks, but the location of the pocket just doesn't work. The waist is high enough that the top of my phone bangs into my ribcage and I also hit it with my elbow as I run. It's a great spot for GU packs and snacks, but a back pocket or thigh pocket for my phone would make these buddies perfect.
Bought these shorts and then got upset they only had one pocket. But then I put them on and ran in them - the MOST comfortable shorts ever. No ride up. Perfect fabric. Almost forgot I was wearing them! Love them so much
These are awesome! They are just the right length so they look cute, don't ride up, and prevent chafing (like other running shorts I've had that just ride up no matter what!). The pockets are great, one fits my phone and the other fits my keys. The high waist band is really flattering. The size 6 fits perfectly (I'm 5'4, 145 lb, usually wear size small). I will be buying another pair!
I am a relatively recent compression-shorts convert. I have long pocket jogger shorts (the 2020 ones) and o-mazing long shorts, both of which are Nyelle and feel a little thicker. I was really excited to see shorts in the plya fabric which feels a bit cooler to me (have a couple pairs of tights in that fabrick). I got theses in the garnet color to mix things up a bit. The color is a little outside my comfort zone. I found that they do show a BIT of crotch sweat but I think it's really only noticeable to me. In general they feel really great. On me (5'9", 160, muscular) they do not ride up at all. They have fewer and smaller pockets than the pocket joggers, so be aware of that. I mostly just run with a key and the zipper waist pocket is great for that. I REALLY wish these came in more colors; I want them in a blue or green!
