MAC TOOLBELT ROGA SHORTS
Mac Rogas + Toolbelt Rogas = Mac Toolbelt Roga Shorts. The legs-out favorite of the Mac, plus all the pockets of the Toolbelt, and then some! With a 360 degree pocket design that combines the security and comfort of a rear zip pocket (for valuables) with the accessibility of an open-edge power mesh pocket everywhere else (for gels, lip balm, etc.) to create the all-in-one super (short) shorts—ready to run!

- Plya Compression waistband (polyester/spandex)
- interior drawcord
- built-in technical liner
- 5 pockets! 4 mesh around waistband, 1 rear zip waist pocket
- four way stretch for full motion
- machine washable
- 1.75" inseam (all sizes)
Maybe it's the squats or maybe my body is settling into its comfortable middle aged shape but my past season Mac Rogas fit just a little too snuggly. At 5' 6" 127-130 lbs I'm somewhere between a 4 and 6. Based on the reviews, I decided to take a chance on the Toolbelt variety hearing they ran just a tad larger and BOOM! the 4's are perfection. You can see from the pic that the toolbelt is about an inch longer in the back and 1/4 inch on the sides. If you are in between sizes in the normal Macs, these might work for you. The hubs is envious of the pockets and wants a pair in black.
I have one pair of the old Mac's... the kind with the small zipper pocket on the back right. I love them, and I expected I'd love these even more.
But the fit is not the same. Sure, it's nice to carry my phone and have enough storage for keys, chapstick, etc... but the inner liner in these is awful. As soon as I started to sweat I could feel how much extra material is there. These Mac's definitely run a little larger in general, but the liner feels especially large and bunches up when I run.
They're fine for walking around in, but VERY uncomfortable on a run. Please bring back the old Mac!!
These shorts have quickly become my new favorite for runs of any distance. The pockets easily hold my phone, keys, snacks, and credit cards. I was afraid they wouldn't fit as well once the pockets were filled, but am pleasantly surprised by how well they work. I am looking forward to buying more of these in the future. Incredibly comfortable and perfect fit. Would love these in the hot orange!
Pretty true to size. I have thick'ish thighs and a smaller waist. I have them in a size 4 and they fit perfect (I am 5'3" and about 140lbs for reference). These are my go to for everything.... even a walk on the beach. The pockets and inseam are perfect. No more safety pinning GU to my shorts. No more stashing my key in my bra (OUCH). Oiselle, my only ask is that you make these in MORE colors.
The pockets on these are amazing, my only complaint is the fit feels just a bit bigger than the regular mac rogas. I mostly noticed it with the fit of the built in underwear. If you are inbetween sizes, you might want to size down.
The pockets on this are amazing! However I did find the fit slightly bigger, or at least the built in underwear feels bigger. If you’re between sizes, perhaps size down.
I will never wear another short for running. These are amazing. Breathable. True to size. I love the short length for long runs. The pockets are amazing. There is NOTHING I do not like about these shorts!
I am already in love with these shorts and can't wait for all the happy summer miles ahead of me in these! These shorts are short but totally flattering and keep me covered. That makes for some happy chafe-free thighs and still a totally covered bum. The back pocket fit my phone and the front pockets are so convenient for my mid-run fuel. Love these and I refuse to compromise on shorts with less pockets now that this world has opened up to me!
