POCKET JOGGER SHORTS
The women have spoken and they want two things: pockets and multiple lengths in shorts. We're here to serve - and believe the new Pocket Jogger Shorts are case in point. Made from our soft, stretchy, yet hold-you-in Nyelle™ fabric (just like the original Pocket Jogger Capris), plus all those pockets! Five pockets to be exact - three along the rear waistband (including one zip) and two on the side legs. Whether you're running, racing, or pocket jogging - these babies are ready to roll. Long Pocket Jogger Shorts also available.
- Nyelle Compression (nylon/spandex)
- interior drawcord
- rear zip waist pocket
- rear side mesh pockets
- 2 leg pockets that fit phone
- 4.75" inseam (all sizes)
I loved my pocket jogger shorts from last year. They fit perfectly, and I wore them all summer for marathon training with no issues. I bought some new ones during the Nee Day sale and they're extremely tight. I am a very consistent size 6 in all things from Oiselle, and even after losing 10 pounds from last summer, these shorts were still a struggle to pull on. Very disappointing.
I wanted to love these shorts, and the pockets are great. However, I don't love the very high waistband, and I felt they run a bit small. I usually wear a 2/4 or a 26/27, so I bought a size 4, but they tend to ride up a bit when I run.
If you like old school “mom jeans” these are for you. I’m only keeping these as a back up because my “other brand” perfect running shorts have been retired for a while. Desperately trying to find a replacement. Greatly disappointed.
I thought that long runs in shorts was just not a possibility for me because everything I tried would chafe starting around the 8 mile mark. I'm so delighted with these - pockets?! no riding up?! They will be a part of my trail running kit for years to come.
I got a 6 because that is my size in other Oiselle bottoms, though in most jeans I'd wear a 2/4 or 26/27.
TLDR: Size up on the new colors.
The sizing with these styles has been so different! These were my favorite in black, midnight, I think one was even called BB blue... then the Douglas Fir got a little tighter, and so were were the purple shorts but I just thought, “hey, they’re more compressive.” And I didn’t read up on the reviews because these were just my favorite. Enter the Nee day sale and I jumped at the chance to order new colors in my regular size 10. I was so excited when I got them but it was a struggle; on went the Pacific blue and I heard the material doing the crackling sounds as I pulled them over my hips. I winced at the sounds and extreme muffin top but pulled them off to try on the Rising Sun- Same painful sounds as the material screamed at me while I wriggled and pulled into them. Quarantine hasn’t been great to me, but my regular trusty, original 10s aren’t making those noises and my jeans still fit on the occasion that I want to wear real pants. Heck, even my Empire shorts that I dared to get an 8 in don’t make that noise when I put them on. I know this because I literally took out and tried on every color I have in this style to make sure I wasn’t imagining things. AND to top it off, I noticed that the length on these new colors just seemed longer. Sigh. There are just so many inconsistencies with these new colors that I don’t think I even want to try the 12s. These new colors are going back.
I was so excited to get these for such a great price after reading all the awesome reviews, but I sadly can't say I am in love. The high waist is very compressive, almost too tight, and not flattering. I love that you can fit your phone in the back pocket but the tightness isn't worth it. The length is the other issue when I first put them on they are perfect, but as soon as I start running they ride up in the inner thigh but stay down on the outsides thanks to the pockets. I was hoping they could redeem themselves as hiking shorts for shorter Front Range hikes but they still ride up, just slower than when running. I was really hoping this would be the perfect run short but sadly I will probably end up selling them at a resale store. :(
I have Pocket Joggers in Douglas Fir in a 10 from Spring 2019. They are form fitting but not suffocating. I thought I would size up to a 12 in the Rising Sun so I could have a pair for days I’m feeling bloated. I’m so glad I did because these are smaller than the 10s that I have, and on the cusp of being too small. If you can, go up at least one size in these.
I've always gone with the flowy shorts because I hate shorts riding up, but have had my eye on these for a while. I read all the amazing reviews about how they don't ride up AT ALL. Sadly, that was not true for me. I am a very standard size 4 in Oiselle sizing, 5'6" and 125lbs. On my first run in these, they rode up TERRIBLY (definitely rode up like 3 inches on me in the inner thigh, so embarrassing and uncomfortable!) I am so sad, because I wanted to love these so much and now cannot return. Not sure what I did wrong... should I have sized up? Sized down? I'm not sure which way would solve the issue. May have to try the longer version.
