These are perfect low key shorts for easy runs, HIITs, or bumming around the house. The pockets are long, but tend to show out the bottom of the shorts if there is something heavy or large in them. When the pockets are super they flair out a bit, but nothing drastic. Lots of room through the bum and legs.
I love these shorts, but the black apparently has a manufacturing flaw that the zipper can fall off. I still love them and wear them, I just have to be careful with the pockets and the zippers. I prefer this type of running short with the undie lining over the compression shorts or the compression type liner. I wouldn't run with a phone or anything too heavy in the pockets, but they are nice when walking around or for gels. I went with my normal small and the fit all around feels good (waistband, liner, outer shorts), I have a short waist and prefer this mid-rise over the high rise shorts. I'm 5'6", 125, 27/37 for ref.
My new favorite pair of shorts. They fit great and I'd say are true to size. The waistband is a little looser than some others, but they stay up just fine throughout my workouts!
Perfect relaxing shorts for everyday wear.
My zipper came off when I unzipped them for the first time. Emailed CS and they didn't have any more in stock. So they refunded me and I still love the shorts, even though one side has no zipper.
