I love the feel of these shorts. The fabric is nice and lightweight, and they have a soft elastic waistband with a drawstring. The lining is very stretchy and comfortable. The outside fabric doesn't have much stretch to it, so I felt like the shorts run a little bit on the smaller side. They have two pockets plus a smaller zippered pocket on the back that is great for holding a key or credit card. My son also tried these shorts and loved the fit of them as well. Overall, I felt like these shorts were great for running as well as for everyday wear.
Great Light Running Shorts - 02 Aug 2022
During the hot summer, these shorts have been great. They are very light, comfortable, and supportive. The lining felt like the perfect size. For more athletic builds, I’m not sure how they will feel. I haven’t squatted in a while and feel they could be tight if my quads were thicker. I don’t run with a phone, so the small zipper pocket has been perfect for cash or a credit card. They are also great for lounging around the house. A small stitch on the front attaches the short to the lining. I thought this would bother me, but I didn’t even notice when I started wearing them. Overall, these shorts are a great value and get the job done. My only wish is that the lining was anti-stink. But, I love the sustainable materials!

These shorts have a soft waist band and drawstring, they are flexible as I can do high knee exercises and stretch in them. I would say that the shorts run a little small as they were a little bit snug in the caboose area; however, they fit great on the thighs! I love the 2 in 1 design as it eliminates the need for wearing tights and makes the shorts soft and flexible. It also keeps you cool and dry as they are light weight. I sweat a lot and the shorts kept form and didn’t slide down or loose shape. The front pockets are deep enough to carry a phone securely and the small zip pocket in the back can hold your key secure during a run. The fabric is great as it is moisture wicking, soft, and flexible; you can perform multiple activities in these shorts. I did some running, some bleachers, weights, and stretching and had no problem performing in them and staying dry. The fabric on the sides can be see through and show a little skin as the side panels are sheer (so be aware). However, those same sheer panels provide good wind flow to keep you cool so if you don’t mind showing a little skin, they are great! What I liked most about the shorts was the material that made them so soft and comfy to wear during a workout and just moving around period. The material kept me dry and comfortable, and it is stylish as I got plenty of compliments!
