      Comments about D'Lite Racer 2 1/2" Short:

      These shorts are nearly perfect. You basically forget you're wearing them, they're that light, and they're short enough that they don't flap around your thighs annoyingly.

      The only downfall (and I mention it only because I'm hoping Brooks designers will read these reviews and make this tiny adjustment) is that there isn't a convenient, secure pocket to hold a key and ID card. The pocket in the back is handy, but there's no secure closure, so I end up jamming my driver's license inside and safety-pinning my key to make sure it won't fall out.

      Otherwise, though, these shorts are essentially perfect. In fact, I think it's time to buy a few more pairs.

      Am I Even Wearing Shorts?

      Comments about D'Lite Racer 2 1/2" Short:

      Seriously, these shorts are about as close as you can get to not wearing any shorts as all. When I'm wearing them, I completely forget about them--which is exactly what you want from any running gear.

      My only gripe (and the only factor that prevented a 5-star rating) is the front inner pocket. It is just a tad too big and loose to hold anything like a key (I tried that and the key ended up bouncing around uncomfortably and finally escaping into the shorts underwear liner), but too small to hold anything like a credit card or ID. Fortunately, there's a snug little pocket right below the waistband at the back of the shorts that seems a safe bet for keys and other tiny items.

      So bottom line: these are a great bet for any summer runner willing to show some leg!

        Love these shorts! They're lightweight and super comfortable. They have loops for gels in the back (haven't tested them out yet, but looks like they'll be great for races) and a pocket. My new go-to short.

          Love these shorts! Literally cannot feel that they are even there. Fabric is super light. Sit a little lower than other Brooks shorts and are pretty short which I like. Can't wait to try them out on a longer run.

            I can never find shorts that fit my waist and butt. These shorts fit both, and well. They're on the shorter side, but it makes them very moveable. All around the best shorts i've found in years.
