Light, but bunches and shows sweat

Great feeling short for extremely hot summer runs. I loved the short and had HIGH hopes this would be my marathon training short. Why is it so hard to find non-chafing; decent coverage shorts? I ordered size 2 in purple. I love and will keep for 2-4 mile runs at most. For ref: 5'3" 115lbs.

More colors and all year round, please!

I love the fabric of the fly-out shorts, but they rode up on me. This version of the Roga's is perfect for those who prioritize comfort, coverage, and generally feeling like you aren't wearing anything, but have on a super flattering pair of shorts. Please make these in more colors and keep them all year round--they are especially great for warm weather, but comfort is a year long priority!

These aren't just for summer running!

I love everything about these shorts: the super light and stretchy fabric, comfy waistband, spacious but not sloppy leg opening... I wear these shorts all the time, even when I'm not running! Please make these available all year round, and in more colors!! For size reference I'm 5'10", 160 pounds, and wear an 8.

The best shorts

These shorts are just the best. I am blessed in the thigh department. I'm generally an 8 on top and a 10-12 on bottom, almost 5'10", 165-175#, pear/athletic shape. These shorts don't chafe, even without anti chafe balm. I have run 3-14 miles and hiked up to ten sans chafe! They're all I want to wear when it's warm out. They are light. They have a pocket. The briefs inside are not annoying. They are spendy but I am happy to have a pair that doesn't leave my inner thighs raw. I have also lost a bit of weight but I can feel they will flex with me size wise. They don't look like a diaper on. I love them. I wear them everywhere.

  • Everything.
  • Absolutely nothing. Except the price. I'm cheap but I'll happily buy these.

Light as air

Same fit as the regular Rogas, but the fabric is light as air. Wonderful for running in this summer heat! I noticed while wearing the blue pair that sweat seeps through and is pretty visible. This is a minor drawback on a fabulous pair of shorts!

Hot Summer Shorts

I made my first Oiselle order with the summer Roga shorts and I don’t know that I can ever wear another short! I am Arizona based and even early morning or night runs are hitting 90 plus degrees. These shorts are made of air and whispers. They are so lightweight and breathable, I want to live in them.

  • The fit is great, but the fabric is amazing.
  • There is nothing to dislike about there shorts!

Best shorts ever

These shorts have the perfect amount of leg room without being flouncy. They are super-light. Curfew color is lovely. I have got about 10 pairs of Oiselle shorts and these are my very favorites. I am 5'3", 52kg, big runner thighs, and size 2 is good.

Lighter and better fit than Roga!

I am obsessed with these shorts. I bought one pair of these and one of the regular roga this spring (2018), and when the regular roga didn't fit as well as last year's version, I exchanged for another pair of these summer rogas because they are PERFECT. They are form fitting - don't flare out but don't completely hug your legs. They are super lightweight and comfortable. I love the blue color I got as well. love love love these shorts.

Yay for comfy shorts

I just received these and immediately had to try them out. After a 6 mile trail run I am happy to report no chafing or riding up! Based on other reviews I was a bit concerned about chafing/riding up. I am 5'5, 145 lbs and definitely have quads and a butt. However, I followed the size chart, ordered the 8, and didn't have a problem. I think I have found the shorts I will be living in this spring and summer.

Better than original roga

Sizing, fabric, and cut and far superior to the updated (2018) standard roga short. Will definitely buy more.

I love these shorts! There's no chafing and they don't ride up or roll up on my leg. They're so comfy and perfect for runs of all distances and even just hanging out. I just wish Oiselle would make these in blaze!

Maximum comfort!

The soft material makes these hands-down the comfiest shorts I have. I wear them for weight-lifting, running, and lounging around the house. I’m 5’9”, 160lbs, and I’ve got larger thighs. I ordered a 10 (I’m usually an 8-10) and these were just a tad too big in the waist, but the infinity drawstring fixes that. Unfortunately they ride up a little when I run. I LOVE the lack of “diaper butt” from the liner.

If you’re somewhat in between sizes in shorts, these are for you! They have a little extra breathing room without being too big. They’re just right!

Great for the heat

I bought a pair in the slate color and I loved them so much I bought the other two colors. My favorite shorts by far! It's swampy hot where I live and these shorts are all I wear.

  • Great for hot, humid days. The colors!!

Favorites!

Summer Rogas are comfortable and feel weightless even on hot days. I have worn them for countless track workouts, long runs, and even a hot, hilly half marathon without any chafing! (And I am a quadzilla.)

New favorite shorts

These are perfect. They quickly became my go to shorts. I've worn them on several long runs, up to 15 miles, and have not had any chafing. They are light, comfy, and feel great--even on salty legs! I am 5' 2" and 115, and the size 4 is a good fit. I discarded the drawstring after determining that I didn't need it. I want to try the Toolbelt Rogas next.

Unflattering & Uncomfortable

So disappointed! After all the great reviews I wanted to love these shorts, but I find them to be incredibly uncomfortable and unflattering! They are tight in all the wrong places and saggy in others. They rode way up as I ran in the most uncomfortable way. Maybe they just don't work for me since they seem to be popular but I was so surprised by how poor the fit was for me. Love Oiselle but did NOT love these!

Summer Perfection Achieved

Can I give this ten million stars? Seriously. I live in hot-as-heck, Texas, and these are SO perfect for summer running. The fabric manages to wick away sweat while staying incredibly lightweight. The fit is ever so slightly more loose (in a good way) than the traditional Roga.
During one of my first runs in these, I had to reach down to make sure I was still wearing bottoms! These are now the shorts I reach for first. Keep these coming!

Amazing!

These shorts are incredible. Hands down my favorite running shorts ever. Super light, super comfy, not too tight or too loose. I usually wear a size 2 or 4, and size 4 was perfect - would not go down. Buying more ASAP. You will not regret buying these.

Favorite Running Shorts

I love my regular Rogas, but love these even more. The fabric is light and silky and, while my regular Rogas sometimes ride up a bit, these drape perfectly and don't ride up at all. My usual size 6 was spot on - I'm 5'4" and about 128 lbs, with a 37" hip measurement. Hope to see these available in more colors soon.

Favorite Roga!

The Summer Rogas are the bomb right out of the package! The material is definitely thinner and more lightweight than my regular Roga shorts. The cut feels roomier in the thigh which is great for myself and any other runner with amazing quads. I think I'm in love and I haven't even run in them yet.
For size reference, I'm 5'1", 132 lbs., muscular legs and the size 6 fits perfect.

Best. Shorts. Ever.

I have been searching for summer running shorts for over 2 years. I have tried many varieties with varying degrees success, but never "just right". These are perfect in every category. I am 48, 5 ft 2 inches and muscular. Fit is hard for me. I wanted something flattering, but not overly tight or revealing. The fabric is also sort of magical, it did not ride up but was lightweight and comfortable. I love these shorts! Thanks to your meticulous designers.

Runs larger than regular rogas

The good: lightweight fabric, great ventilation with the mesh panels, love the colors (Coast is a little less bright than appears on screen).

I wanted to love these for the above reasons, but the fit was off for me. These run larger than the regular rogas, but I bought them in my normal size 6 because the regular rogas are already pretty fitted. I'm 5'3 and 130 lbs. Unfortunately, the summer roga 6's fit but rode up a lot when I ran. These are now gym-only shorts for me. I'm not sure if I could size down to a 4 and don't want to risk the shipping/return costs.

The Best

I love these shorts. I got them in slate and the color is great--different without being flashy. I first ordered the 4s which fit well at the waist but were tight across my thighs/butt, so I now have a 6 even though the waist is slightly too big (I'm 5'6" and 135 pounds with an athletic build) but I don't mind using the drawstring.

Best shorts ever!

I've tried the regular rogas before, and they're not super flattering on bigs hips! But these are the jam!
So if you're like me, and struggle with your waist being smaller than your hips and behind... these are definitely for you.
Hope these are here to stay!

Love these shorts

These shorts are wonderful! They're super lightweight and just the right length and looseness for a good summer run. I'm 5'7", 135 lbs and the 4 was a great fit. I ordered a 4 in the Roga and Roga Toolbelt and both are smaller in their fit around the thighs/hips/butt than this style for the same length (Roga being the smallest).

  • Lightweight, length, fit
  • Inconsistent sizing to other Rogas

LOVE!!

I have been wearing Rogas for years and thought they pretty much could not be improved upon, but I was wrong!! Love, love, love these. The fabric is so light and silky. Absolutely perfect for super humid Florida. Ever so slightly roomier than regular Rogas but no need to size down. More colors please!!

  • Fabric, fit, feel. Pretty much everything
  • The drawstring. Like all Rogas, it is scratchy and I'll probably end up pulling it out.

Best Running Shorts!

I just bought these shorts and have worn them three times now. They are the best running shorts I've ever tried! As someone who normally wears exercise clothes from mid-quality, fast fashion chains I have to say it is completely worth it to spend a bit more at a specialty store.
These shorts are so lightweight and comfortable but don't make you feel like you are wearing nothing. The lining is the best because it's a thin mesh so it doesn't rub against the thigh crease or hold in sweat.

Best Rogas yet!

I have a pair of the regular Rogas and they give a fierce wedgie. I can't wear them due to constantly rearranging them. I love that the Summer Rogas don't give you a wedgie (I just ran 10 miles an drew was so happy with them!) I love that they are ever so slightly bigger than the regular Rogas. (Size 4 Rogas are too small so I went with 6, slightly too big) the underwear liner fits fully over he cheek, and have enough elastic so that they stay put. Summer Rogas size 4 are perfect. Would love more colors, would love to see them available year round!

  • The under wear liner had enough elastic to feel like they weren't stretched out and fully covered the butt.
  • Not enough colors!!

Improved Rogas

Keep this style! I have not been a big roga fan until these shorts. They are sized slightly larger, and I'm between sizes so the fit is PERFECT. They are light and airy...great for Houston's swampy weather. And they look great...mom and sister both complimented the shorts. Best part - they DO NOT RIDE UP!! always an issue i've had with roga shorts.

Roga Light for Humid Days

How could Oiselle improve upon a good thing? Make it lighter. (Please note the mesh detailing on sides and back -- good stuff!). I recently moved to the South and I know I will be grabbing these rogas for our notoriously humid days. I also know I will appreciate them when it's "just hot." Highly recommended!

Step Aside Roga Shorts!

Ever since I tried on Rogas in 2013, they have been my short of choice. I have tried to add Distance Shorts or Stride Shorts into the mix, but my love for the Rogas always wins out. But the Summer Rogas. O. MY. They are amazing! So lightweight and breathable. I bought one pair unsure about if they could compare to my beloved Rogas and have promptly purchased the other two colors after wearing them today. I even told my friend she had to try running them after I washed them because I love them so much. A must have in every runner's wardrobe!

  • the lightweight, breathable feel
  • they may run slightly larger than Rogas, but I still stuck to my same size
