Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool, Light, Running Shorts These are light weight and cool. I usually run 5-6 miles on trails in the desert. These shorts feel like they are not even there because they are so cool and light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfortable. I use these shorts for running in general and they work really well. The shorts are loose fitting so they don't chafe your legs while you run. They have a built in liner like a bathing suit but I still wore compression shorts under just to keep everything in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far Just bought these. Have older pairs that I have worn for years. These look to be of the same quality.

Do the shorts have pockets , where and how many. I need side or back pockets.. Thanks

Asked by: Cary Grant
The Challenger Shorts do not have side or rear pockets. Just a small interior pouch on the waistband for a key or coins.
