LONG POWER POCKET SHORTS
For those who want to go long, the new Long Power Pocket Shorts have a trio of features that go the distance. 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.
- Plya Interlock fabric (polyester / spandex)
- interior drawcord
- side zip pocket
- side hip pocket
- 8.75" inseam (all sizes)
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!
