Comments about Essential 3.5" Split Short:

Great shorts! One small thing which could be improved on would be the drawstring. I think it should be a bit longer, stretchy, or longer and thin.

        I love this running short. One of the best split shorts I have purchased. Best thing about it is how it fits me so well and feels really comfortable. This is an ideal running short. The one problem I have with this one is the stitching. I am not sure if its just the piece that I received, but some of the stitched threads have started coming off in a coupe of places. It still looks good and does its job but that's the only reason I took off a star in my rating. I would still recommend this running shorts.

            I'm pretty happy with these shorts. They are short, but not ridiculous. And very well made. I would buy them again. It would be nice if they made these w/o a liner as well so you could "choose your own drawers."

              New and improved is not always improved. Back in the day, when liners were less high tech they were also more absorbent and comfortable. I sure do miss the old cotton liners.

                I liked how the shorts felt. I have worn them on a very hot day and did not notice any clinging of the material due to sweat-drenched shorts. Very comfortable
