    Comments about Sherpa IV 9" Short:

    I like to run with pockets, and thought I would try 9" instead of usual 7". I'm 5'8", 170, 34" waist. I normally by Large in 7", probably could've gone with a Medium in these. Ran once (3mi) and felt really big. I run marathons. Could just not be used to them. Probably will use more for gym. But, super lite, comfy and breathable.

        Comments about Sherpa IV 9" Short:

        These are just fantastic shorts. I always used to wear Nike/etc. general fitness/training shorts for my workouts and running, but once I got these, I don't think I will ever go back. My favorite thing about them is how light they are. The difference is VERY noticeable from all of my other shorts, and particularly for running, I love how it almost feels like you're not wearing anything at all(they also have a light liner so you can wear these sans underwear if you so desire). They are also stretchy, and don't restrict your ROM, so they are great for all kinds of training exercises. Finally, being 6'4", I greatly appreciate the extra coverage provided from the 9" inseam--pretty much the perfect length. My only criticisms are that I wish the pockets were a little deeper(an iPhone 5S barely fits in them), and that they came in more colors (also, what's up with that tiny strip of grey around the top of the waistband?? I don't get that...). Those are extremely minor gripes FWIW, but thought I would mention them regardless. Anyway, I own a couple pairs now, and will definitely be getting more in the future--thanks Brooks!

        Pros

        • Comfortable

        Cons

        • No Really Secure Pockets

        Best Uses

        • Running

        Comments about Sherpa IV 9" Short:

        I drive to my gym. Therefore, I need a secure pocket for my driver's license, a credit card and my car key/fob. My 2013 car utilizes a remote fob, not a key. It does not fit in the very small secure pocket; nor does the driver's license or credit card. Consequently, these shorts will not work for my most common use.

          I hope someday Brooks makes running shorts without the wide baggy legs. Other than that these shorts are my favorite.

            Shorts are very easy to wear, dry extremely quick and keep me cool. I even wear them golfing. I have skinny legs and wish the shorts came with NARROW leg openings, but they are still the best I've found so far. Plan on ordering more.
