TOOLBELT ROGA SHORTS
Pockets on pockets. The original offshoot of the Roga that gave you more storage. It's all about the 360 Pocket waistband 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 or what have you) to create the best stow and go running shorts. Whether it’s a long training run, a remote ultra, or just the need to carry all the things, Toolbelt IS the sharpest tool in the shed.

I understood from other reviews that these ran slightly big, so I was disappointed when I wore them that they were tighter in the waist and the legs than my other pairs of Rogas in the same size. I’m confused since the reviews said they ran big and yet these were tight and rode up a bit in my regular size. Maybe because I bought them on sale?
I was very excited for these, so bought them in my regular Oiselle size. They were slightly loose which I didn't mind because of the drawstring, but the front pockets were extremely loose. I wouldn't be able to put anything in there securely. I much prefer the pockets on the trackstar shorts and the biking shorts with pockets. Maybe in a smaller size they would work? But the pockets just don't seem secure to me.
Size chart was way off. I have a 26" waist and 35" hip and a size 4 was HUGE to the point of falling right off. Will try a smaller size, but frustrating for online ordering and returning when the size chart is that incorrect.
Love the toolbelt for storage. Love the Roga fabric. Love that the waistband is fitted but doesn’t dig. Buy in bulk. Can’t wait to see summer’22 colors and patterns!
This is my first Oiselle purchase and I couldn't be happier. They are so lightweight and comfortable. I ordered the 2 and 4 and kept the 2. For reference, I'm 5'5, 115-118 lb and no curves. If anything, I think the shorts run slightly large (since a 2 is the smallest size). I plan to use the zippered pocket for fuel during my marathon. I don't think a phone would be comfortable for me because it's not compressive enough to keep it from moving around. I love that these shorts aren't high rise because I feel like everything is high rise these days. I would say they are medium to low rise, hitting about 2 inches below my belly button. I do think they are a bit pricey, but the quality is great especially compared with cheaper brands. I would buy again.
Yep, I love these. La-la-la LOVE. They're great quality and have lots of pockets. I got the maroon color and they're really pretty, too! One thing, though, is that I think they run a tiny bit big. I am a true size 6, and these feel a bit loose around my waist. (But they're a good fit in the booty and thighs.) I feel like if you're in the middle of sizes, you can probably size down. Definitely getting these in more colors.
It's been years since I've found a pair of running shorts that are this comfortable, and cute! Took them out for a test run this morning and they get a 10/10. Comfortable, breathable, stretchy... and did I mention, cute? Will be stocking up on these bad boys in every color.
These are some great looking shorts. The fabric is very smooth / soft/ comfy. as you would expect with the Roga shorts. These shorts are very slimming. A lot of running shorts make my butt look large, but these somehow miraculously camouflages my behind and makes everything look slimmer. I think the pockets are not as good as the Track Star Shorts. I still give it 5 stars, because it's nothing wrong with it, just different from the Track Star. I'm all about the pockets. Gotta have my phone with me at all times. The mesh pockets on the waist band does fit a phone but it's not very comfortable, and you can't sit down when a phone is there. (since the fold on your belly would push on the phone).
Just a heads up , it runs large ... I wear 4 in almost all oiselle tops and bottoms but for some reason for these shorts (and the Track Star shorts), I Have to get a 2. the 4 is way too lose . Not sure why it runs so large. I'm a rather thick waisted person .... and there are a ton of much thinner ladies out there. What would they wear if I'm already getting the smallest size it comes in...
