Rated5out of5byHenkadoodlefromGreat all-around active shortI use these running and in the gym but I could wear them all the time. I'm 36' at the waistline and just under a 32' inseam. The medium fits me perfectly, and I have never worn a better combination of comfort and support. They call for cold wash and line dry, and I haven't tried this, but I'll bet on a summer day you could don them and walk out the door right after the spin cycle

Rated5out of5byBen the bike commuterfromNiceI am a heavy dude, but I love to run. These shorts are a must for me. They stop my legs from rubbing together and chaffing to death. They are not embarrassingly short thanks to the longer inseam. I've tried a few other brands, but these feel the best for me.
They are surprisingly durable for their thinness and lightness. I have run hundreds of miles in 2 pairs of Nike 9 Inch Running shorts. The whole time they were rubbing between my thighs. The material hasn't worn out, the seams are still good, and the fabric hasn't pilled into rough ball like some synthetics do when they rub against each other. Also important, the liner is soft and comfortable. As a big guy, I sweat a ton. These shorts dry reasonably fast.
I strongly recommend air drying running shorts - not using a dryer. I always air dry these. I have had similar shorts became stiff and the elastic failed from dryer heat - even on low.
