Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice and lightweight, but expensive Bought these for long distance hiking to reduce irritation. Great lightweight product with no frills (no zippers, only an inner pocket tucked inside). Nice mesh material on the sides and a good length without being too long or too short. However, for what they are I don't think the pricing on these is very competitive. There are numerous other offerings at a lower pricepoint from Under Armor and TNF. Decided to return because I couldn't justify the price, these should be marked lower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY NICE SHORTS FOR ROAD OR TRAIL RUNNING I really like these shorts. Fabric is lightweight and stays dryer than most other shorts I have. They are trim but not tight fitting in the legs. Rear pocket is in an unusual place, but works great for a car key. Length is good as I don't like short shorts. Bought the gray grid pattern and may get some dark blue in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Shorts The only beef I have on these shorts is the pocket is in an odd spot. Being on the inside of the brief on the back hip, it's hard to get to the pocket. There's loop stitched into the pocket, but it's senseless because it's difficult to access with one hand or both hands around your backside. Other than that, the shorts are nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! Great shorts. Very lightweight. I use them in the gym. Great all around workout short and cry airy. Would not want to hike in them due to getting snagged on something and getting ripped. I have serveral pairs of the Mountain Hardwear refueler shorts and these are comparable if not a little bit lighter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Liner is too tight on my thighs. Waist fit nicely. Nice material. The liner fits way too tight in the crease of my thigh/hip. I don't have overly muscular legs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice light running shorts Great length and fit. Needs a bigger pocket. It's 1 inch short of fitting my iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for high temp runs I bought these to do long runs in Phoenix in the summer. So far I have run 23 and 26.3 miles in them and am thrilled with the performance. They are total comfort, no chaffing, binding. I usually run with ice packed in my hydration vest so they are wet for half the run and still no binding at waist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of comfortable. No pockets. Returned. Kind of comfortable. Biggest issue I had was zero pockets. They say they have a pocket on the inside but its useless. Great shorts if you're running a 5k and don't need to carry a key fob or any nutrition. I returned them because they didn't have a pocket.
