    Took this on my first marathon and had no hitches. The length was just right as it allowed complete movement but wasn't embarrassingly short. I wore these with UA 6in briefs, and didn't have any issues with the inside liner. I carried 3 GU gels in the back pocket during the race and didn't really notice them there, but at 4 gels you will feel it moving around. The little pocket inside was large enough to carry my card, car key, and a little cash. Oddly enough, nothing fell out until I finished the race (maybe from sitting down to stretch?) Either way, glad I bought these shorts, nice design, will probably buy another pair!

    I was excited to try these shorts. Great material, design, and fabric. I have one issue - the fabric bunches in the front, especially on the upper stride. While I'm not sure of the design solution, I would have liked a longer side vent as I feel some restriction.

        I got these two weeks ago, and have been out on long runs with them twice so far (12 mi, and 20 mi). They were really comfortable and lightweight, no complaints yet.

              Summer time best seeing as they are perfect to head out for a run, then out on the boat and they dry so quickly I never have to change after swimming in them. Such a functional and comfortable short!

                I run before work int he mornings, these shorts have been great and fit perfectly, the waistband is snug without being tight and the mesh panel in back helps with perspiration and drying. Would certainly buy another pair or two to replace my old Nike shorts

                      I have several pairs of running shorts from several different companies,Adidas,Nike,Asics, all in a medium size. These Brooks shorts are the only pair that actually feel like a true medium. The zippered back pocket is a great feature. All running shorts should have at least one pocket, not just the little pouch for stashing your key.
