      Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

      These are the best shorts I have ever bought. I'm a big fan of your gear in general, but these fit me to a T. I'm 5'8" and 150 with very long legs. What a flattering cut they are. No riding up at all and I run in excess of 30 miles of week.

      My only complaint is they don't come in more colors! Can someone PLEASE make me a pair of Navy blue running shorts that are long enough!

        Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

        I purchased these on a day I had to run and forgot my shorts at home, these shorts were the only black women's Brooks shorts left in the store. I was just happy they were in my size, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how wonderful they are. Now my all time favorite running shorts. They are longer than normal, which I love, but you don't notice the length while running. Would buy again and again.

        Pros

          Cons

          • Looks Unflattering
          • Poor Fit
          • Rides Up Immediately

          Best Uses

            Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

            Tried them on, rides up into my crotch immediately just when i was walking from the room to a mirror to look at them. Definitely will NOT work for me on a run. They also look very unflattering/frumpy. Had to return them for a refund.

              These Shorts Don't Scale the Heights

              By A middle-age runner

              from Hamden, CT

              About Me Avid Athlete

              Pros

                Cons

                • Restricts Movement
                • Too Short

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

                  I'd been wearing Brooks Epiphany shorts for years. That model was perfect: well constructed--lightweight but durable fabric that breathed and moved easily with my running gait. As important, the Epiphany shorts were the right length. I'm a bigger, older runner. Those shorts' 7" length covered just the right amount of my thighs. I always felt comfortable wearing them, even when taking on tough hills.

                  The Sherpa shorts appear to be the Epiphany's replacement. Alas: they don't scale those heights.

                  The fabric's light, breathable, and durable. But don't be fooled by the attractively colored band that appears to be waist high--it falls below the navel, even when you lace the inner tie tightly. The 6" seam is too short for my taste and comfort. Especially compared to the Epiphany model. Alas: I'm returning the two pairs of Sherpas I purchased. Sigh.

                  I've always turned to Brooks' women's clothing because the styles and cuts are the right proportions for all kinds of women's bodies. The Sherpa signals a new direction, it seems. What a mistaken turn; what a loss.
