      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.

      Comments about Sherpa IV 5" Short:

      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.

          Sherpa 4 are better than the previous version. Excellent shorts. The materiel wears well and is soft and flexible. I've run many long runs with zero chafing.
          The 5 inch version is long enough for the gym, too.

            Comments about Sherpa IV 5" Short:

            Completely satisfied with these shorts! Very lightweight and easy to move in, and when I sit down I don't feel completely exposed like other shorts I see some people wearing that totally should not be wearing. They also respond well to sweat and don't bunch up or stick to my skin. They have a brief cut inside liner, which is comfy and not too constricting, but I much prefer the boxer brief cut inside liner like in other Brooks shorts. That's just a personal preference and shouldn't dissuade you from purchasing these shorts (unless you just absolutely have to have that type of liner!). The back pocket IS waterproof, but be warned, it doesn't have the capacity to hold very much. And, anything very heavy, like a cell phone, will more than likely pull your shorts down if they're not tied on very tightly! I keep my key fob back there and that's it. All in all, I really like these shorts and would definitely purchase another pair!
