MAC ROGA SHORTS
For those who seek maximum legs-out freedom, but an alternative to the booty short, the Mac Roga was inspired by Sarah “Mac” Robinson who wanted Rogas that were “a little less.” The same semi-fitted style that defines the Roga family, now with an extra large, center back zip pocket, Plya Compression waistband, and a new Roga Stretch Woven that is more fluid - with all the same stretch!
- Roga Stretch Woven fabric (polyester/spandex)
- Plya Compression waistband (polyester/spandex)
- interior drawcord
- built-in technical liner
- rear zip waist pocket
- four way stretch for full motion
- machine washable
- 1.75" inseam (all sizes)
Lifelong Mac Roga fan but the new version of the shorts just aren’t flattering. I like SHORT SHORTS and these seem to go way long in the back. They puff out a bit weirdly in the front, but I could live with that, but the back...too much coverage for a ‘short short’! Bummer.
These shorts were my first Oiselle purchase, and WOW! They are my instant new fave. So comfortable! LOVE THEM! 5'7, 140 lbs and the size 6 is perfect.
I love love love these shorts and since they have redesigned them I wasn’t sure if I would still love them, but they may be even better than ever! They are super comfortable, the lining doesn’t cut my cheeks, and the length is perfect for hot weather! I wear these for running, walking, CrossFit, or casually. I’ve been a fan for years and thought having 14 pairs was enough, but sometimes I buy duplicates. I can live in these during the summer.
This is my second pair of Mac Rogas, and I got the Pacific color, which is beautiful. The only problem is that I looked like I’d peed myself after an 8-miler in them. They reeeeally show sweat stains in this color, so be aware for planning purposes! The fabric seems lighter and more technical than my previous pair (2017, I think), and the pocket is now a massive waistband pocket, large enough to hold my phone in its bulky case. Way better than the small “butt-pocket” from before. The overall fit is bigger than my older pair, with the leg openings being a bit too big for me. No problem when running, just not as flattering (I have pretty skinny legs but mommy hips, so have issues with baggy shorts gaping at the leg openings).
Overall, better technical specs than previous iteration, but I wish the leg openings were more tailored like before. Great for staying comfortable in hot weather, except you may want to go with a less “sweaty looking” color if that’s of concern.
I own probably a dozen pairs of these shorts - they're the perfect length for hot summer runs where you don't want too much sweaty fabric around but still might have to do something afterwards where you don't want to wear tight booty shorts. It does seem like this silhouette flares out a little bit more than earlier iterations, which I really like, especially with the roga fabric, which is technical stretchy perfection
