    I've taken these out for a couple long runs and they are really quite comfortable. They are light and cool. Like most products of this nature they retain some odor but that's nothing new. I love the back pocket being in the center which adds some balance if you put keys or gels in it. I really only have two minor issues which kind of go together. The side holster pockets, which are a great feature, could stand to be just a little deeper. I put a single Gu gel in each and that was just about all it could hold, due not only to the size of the pockets itself but the very thin bit of velcro. I found myself checking to make sure the velcro was secure much more than I would have liked. All in all these are a really nice pair of shorts and I would definitely recommend them to any runner.

    I absolutely love my Brooks pants, they're a workhorse for me in the fall and winter, so I decided to expand and try their shorts out. I measured the inseam of my Nike shorts at 5" and bought the corresponding 5" Brooks shorts. When they arrived, however, they settle about 2-3 inches higher than my Nike shorts (which fall just above my knees).

    In hindsight, total length would be a very helpful measurement for the website description. They offer free returns, which is nice, but I'm keeping them for comfortable race shorts (and to get some sun above my knees).

    I'm not really a fan of the side pockets (compared to the rear pocket), which are a new experience for me, but I'll give them a shot as well and embrace change.

      Comments about Sherpa IV 5" Short:

      My new favorite running shorts. Reasonably priced, just the right length (not disturbingly short, not too long), completely unrestrictive and cooling, no chafing. I thought the shorts I had before were pretty lightweight, but these take it to another level. Three small pockets are great - a zippered pocket and a velcro pocket for gels and such, as well as a hidden key pocket.

          Comments about Sherpa IV 5" Short:

          I swear by the Sherpa III, needed to add a few pairs for the new year. Love the Sherpa IV, better designed pockets, but fits slightly tighter than the III. If you are borderline, consider sizing up.

          Can't speak highly enough of these, my everyday choice.
