LONG TOOLBELT ROGA SHORTS
Long Roga lovers rejoice. More pockets for long distance adventures. All the originals remain: center back waist pocket and side front zip pocket, but now with the addition of our unique 360 waistband pocket design that is perfect for holding items for which you want easy access. Like all Rogas, the waistband is wide and flat for comfort, made from our Plya™ Compression fabric, and the body of the shorts use a special woven with 4-way stretch and a mid-weight that drapes beautifully, not too light or too heavy. Pocket up, and power on!

For reference I’m 5’3” and about 145lbs. I have thick thigh chafe always and need the long version of everything. I live in a dry climate, so nothing clings to me like it would in humidity and everything rides up. These are the only roga style that doesn’t ride up on my thighs specifically because of the teeny difference in design. I think their extra structure in the waistband holds on better and doesn’t move around on me and the slightly tighter fit stays solid on me. I know it isn’t for everyone… but the point of having a bunch of rogas is that one is bound to work for you! This is mine.
These are perfect summer shorts. Not too short, not too long, they don’t ride up at all. A common problem I have with shorts is that they constantly ride up. I can go on a leisurely walk or play pickle ball in these, and they do not do that. They are comfortable to wear for any activity.
I LOVE the Long Rogas, but these unfortunately fit differently than the others. The underwear doesn't sit right and these are less comfortable (tighter), unfortunately, even in the same size. A size up would have been way too big. I wish I could exchange them, but they are out of the exchange window. Because I have 5 pairs of the Long Rogas these unfortunately won't make it into the rotation because they don't fit as well.
I was excited to try these since I own and love several Long Rogas - I mean, who doesn't want more pockets? I ordered my typical size but for some reason these didn't fit the same. They were close but a bit snug and a size up seemed like they would be too big? Not sure why these would fit different so I ended up exchanging them for the Long Rogas. I had hoped these would have worked.
I like the length, material and general style as this was my 1st long toolbelt roga shorts. I like the roomy zip side pocket for my phone, but it bounces around when jogging/running. The internal drawstring doesn’t serve any useful purpose for me and suggest removing in exchange for a more structured waistband. I like the front mesh pockets for chapstick & key. I don’t like the long zipper pull tie on the back as it tends to stick out and not lay flat. I would rather put phone in back pocket to avoid bouncing but in won’t fit. Will probably use these for walking instead of running.
I love the length of the long roga, and that it now comes in the toolkit! The print is cute (green leaf), however these are my least favorite roga generation. The new waistband material feels cheap and isn't as flat and flattering as previous rogas. The infinity loop is useless and awkwardly sticks out. Please bring back the previous flat, drawstring waistband!
