Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks great, but bunches up [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I loved a lot of things about these shorts: the length, the smooth waistband, the light material. I did not love that the leg openings were a little too wide/too much fabric for me, so they bunched up. I bought these shorts specifically for running, and I knew before even trying to run that they would not work for that purpose for me. I think these shorts are very nice quality and would be great for other types of workouts, yard work, etc. but that was not why I needed them, so I returned them. Sadly, my quest for running shorts that do not ride up continues!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Your thighs will gobble them up. Loved the shorts, right out of the package. I remember them being Super comfortable and lightweight. I washed them and cannot currently locate(that should tell you how I really feel about them). I cannot tell you if they have pockets. My big issue with them, as run/walk shorts, was that my thighs gobbled them up:( They were were highly recommended as “they will not ride up” shorts. They rode up almost immediately. Continually pulling down the crotch before chafing can ensue, makes for a very unpleasant walk. I will probably use them for lounging around. Which stinks because they weren’t cheap but I also hope, that as I get leaner thighs, this won’t be an issue and they will be a 5 star short:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick thigh love! OH MY! I’ve had thick thighs since middle school sports. Women’s shorts always creep, crawl, and stick. Makes workouts uncomfortable. I have a 29” waist but always get L/XL because of this. I ordered a L and could probably even have gone to a M and been good! After an intense stretch and high cardio workout, I’m using a break to type this now! The shorts are incredible! Did not crawl, creep, or stick! There are a couple small pockets in the front waist band and a pocket for your phone in the middle back. This pair being a little big might make the phone a smidge loose to hold (not quite sure yet) but a more fitted pair would be better secured. I’m going to need a lot more of these for our TX heat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick thigh? These shorts have your back! They don't ride up! I found them on from an Instagram runner Erin Azar. My thighs are big and like Erin's they gobble up most shorts. I normally have to do the side step-shake to get most shorts back in place when I run but not with these! I am a CrossFitter and have worn them to 3 different workouts. I ran, lifted, and did other various CrossFit movements and they stayed in place with no gapping in the back. I also wore them out and about shopping, errands, ect. and I am happy to report that there were no wedgies or bunching! I am going to order a weeks worth so I can stay cool this summer. Just for your reference my thighs are a little over 25inches around and I had no problems with these shorts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs large but super comfortable running shorts I bought 2 colors of this short in S (blue and grey) and then returned for XS, even the XS is a little loose on me. I think they run large (4 stars) and thats because my other brooks shorts that I love and wanted to replace were a S. That said I usually wear XS, but even this size is tad loose on me. That’s okay with me because I prefer comfort when I run, I hate snug shorts. Also, I like the little longer length and they are well constructed with a little little pocket in the front which I put cars keys or credit card key.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and convenient I love these shorts. I am 5'7", 145-150lbs, 33" waist, 41.5" hips, rectangle body type, and I typically wear a Medium or 8-10 in pants. I have these shorts in Medium in 3 colors. I love the built in underwear, the key pockets and especially the roomy phone pocket (I have an LG G8 ThinQ in a case), and the fact that the waistband lays smoothly rather than digging in. I also love the interior drawstring which is very handy for when my weight and/or IBS bloat fluctuates. These shorts are mid-rise, so they hit about an inch and a half or so below my belly button. I did experience some chub rub/riding up on the inner thighs, but once I got used to my stride and stopped thinking about it, the shorts kind of automatically adjusted where they needed to be and it was fine and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend! I love these shorts! I've been struggling to find good running shorts that don't ride up and cause chafing, or get stuck in awkward places, and that just feel comfortable. These check all the boxes! I'm 5'5", 155lbs, and I got a size Medium which fits perfectly (that's my usual size). I wore these on an 8 mile run this morning and felt fantastic the whole time. I love the pocket in back (I stuck my mask in it) and the material is soo soft. Highly recommend! I will be buying more in other colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fav New Shorts The shorts I’ve waited years for! I loved the old pacer II short (seasons 2013-14) & nothing has fit me as well & had the same features as those until now. These have a drawstring, back pocket (and extra front pockets!), 5in inseam AND outseam & NO split hem that won’t stay put when running. They are so soft & lightweight. I tried them on in store - a M fit in the waist but was snug on thighs and hips & L a bit loose in waist but better fit overall. SO HAPPY the drawstring is back so I went with the L. I’m 5’2 157lbs & I run & CrossFit, so finding things to fit the quads & butt can be a struggle. I’m also now 18weeks pregnant and they fit great still. Waistband has worked well with the growing belly. I’m going to buy like a bajillion pairs. Hope to see more darker colors options in the fall.
