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 typically don't like spandex shorts. But these are awesome! I and 5'2" and 115 pounds. I bought them in a size 6. they seem to stretch out a bit but I just fold the top and don't notice it at all when running! Did 13 miles in the humidity and didn't chafe at all!
I am going to buy another pair but probably in a size 4! Hope this was helpful!
Everything about these shorts is perfect except for the waistband. Compression should not mean “sucking the life out of my abdomen.” Way too tight and makes for an unflattering outfit unless paired with a looser top
I really like these shorts. The pockets are so convenient to hold all of my items and the back zip pocket securely holds my phone while running. At first the shorts are a little tight on the waist but now I actually like how secure it feels while running. The material is high quality and the shape is flattering as well.
I read a lot of the reviews about the waist being tight compared to prior iterations before deciding to go with my regular size anyway. I’d rather them be a little tight than too loose and shift around during the run. I agree that these feel a little tight as compared to last season’s pocket jogger shorts, but I found it tolerable and not uncomfortable during the run. If anything, it reminded me to keep my core engaged. Sitting around afterwards, the waist did start to feel a little too snug, though. I suspect, like with most things, these will loosen up a bit with washing and wearing. I’m overall happy with them because they are a good length and have all the pockets.
I saw the many reviews saying these joggers run small. I didn't listen. I initially got a size 6, which is what I wear in other Oiselle bottoms (I'm 5'5", 125 lbs). They were suffocating, so I returned them and got a size 8. This was an improvement but still squeezed me in a very unflattering and uncomfortable way. I'm torn whether I want to size up to a size 10 or just give up. I liked the length, but these may not be for me.
I have been a tried-and-true fan of loose-fitting short running shorts ever since I started running years ago. Recently, I went on a quest to find a pair of shorts for summer that could hold my iPhone Plus securely without bouncing. I figured my best bet was tighter-fitting shorts. I found these online and let me tell you...they are PERFECT!!! I have finally found my favorite running shorts! My large iPhone (in a case!) fits perfectly in the back zip pocket, and there is absolutely no bounce, I could hardly tell it was there! The higher waist was fantastic for extra compression, but not too tight. They were the perfect height for waist. I had no issues with riding up or bunching with the legs, either. For reference, I am 5’6”, 120 lbs. These are definitely worth it!! I would highly recommend!
I bought the capri version of this style when it first came out and loved it. After having a baby last August, I got another pair for Christmas, one size bigger, and noticed the different fabric, which was heavier than before but still quite nice. They fit really well, stay put, and have withstood many washings. So I recently ordered a pair of the shorts (because, post-baby, I need my phone with me All. The. Time), but was disappointed. Despite being the same size as the pair I bought six months ago, the shorts give me muffin top. I'm keeping them because I am still hoping to drop a bit of weight once I stop nursing and the pockets are phenomenal... I love Oiselle but like other posters have said, I wish that there was more consistency in the sizing of their bottoms.
I bought three pairs of pocket joggers in spring 2019, and I love them. This year I decided to order a fourth pair in the fun new red color, and the sizing feels completely different. I purchased the same size, and the size discrepancies between these new shorts and my own pair are obviously visible even after washing and wearing multiple times (see picture for reference: the black pair are from 2019, the red pair from 2020). The waistband comes up much higher and the top seam has no give, digs into my skin during runs, and leaves a horrible line on my stomach. The top elastic is also unflattering, and this is not a problem in my older pairs. The length of the inseam is longer too, which doesn't bother me that much. I want to love these so much and I want to continue buying them, but I really dislike this new pair. Please bring back the old design! Thank you!
