I purchased these shorts and the comparable New Balance shorts at the same time online without trying either on. I can say with out hesitation that these are superb. I'm 6'2" 185 (I'm lanky, sue me) and the mediums fit great. Good for a 32"-34" waist and hits mid-low thy. I'm a member of AFSOC and I workout hard 6 days a week and these are perfect. Long runs or dead lifts these are great. If you're thinking about these or the New Balance pair get these. The New Balance pair is really thick and fits like a basketball short with the medium hanging down around my knees and again I'm 6'2". I plan on getting a few more pairs because it's a pain doing laundry every night do I can wear these shorts. Get em!

I'm used to running in 5" Brooks and my wife picked up this 2 in 1 for my birthday. Had high hopes for it, but unfortunatly the shorts inner didn't provide enough control which made for a very distracting first run. They might be good for light workouts but won't work for me for running.

    Great pair of shorts. Very comfortable and very light. Love the little pocket for cards or a key inside the short. Would definitely buy another pair.

      Comments about Essential 2-in-1 7" Short:

      As an avid runner, I prefer the brief liner compared to 2 in 1 because of the option to wear other supportive wear of my liking. As a poor grad student, the Essential line ROCKS, until Brooks discontinued (?) the 7" short with brief.

      The 2 in 1 liner in these shorts makes the waist line sag or fit low, like a super low-rise cut. It seems as though the crotch-to-waist is not long enough, causing wedgie and a low waist (and slightly uncomfortable).

      Other than the liner, these are GREAT shorts!

          The shorts are great. Personally, I like tighter compression on my thighs. I will get another pair, next time I will order a smaller size.
          The material has a great feel, with good breathing.
