These are great running shorts. I am a runner with a fuller figure and I was looking for a pair of lightweight shorts with a longer inseam that didn't ride up while running. These do the trick. They stay in place and I don't have to worry about showing too much skin or about the shorts riding up. I also like all of the pockets. My only issue is that the rise is a little lower than I would like, but the shorts stay in place, so it really isn't an issue. I haven't had any issues with chafing so far and I've used these for some longer runs.

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.

    I love the comfort and fit of these shorts. They allow great range of motion while keeping everything appropriately covered. I have worn them for both training runs and a race and I really want another pair!

      Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

      I was hoping that these would be a direct replacement for my beloved Moving Comfort Work It shorts. They are not. The cut is much slimmer in the hips and thighs. I have ordered the next size up (medium in MC shorts, large in these) and I am hopeful that gives me the extra leg room that I am looking for kickboxing and strength training. I still love the wide waist band and the material feels very much the same.

          I am 5'3 and 105 pounds, I ordered these shorts in an x-small. They fit great, I would say even if you were 10 heavier these would still be good in an x-small. I ordered them for the 6 inch inseam trying to be a bit more modest as I get older and these shorts did not disappoint! Love Love Love Them! I run 30 to 40 miles weekly and these shorts are perfect for the warmer weather, I will be ordering another pair in a different color!!!!

            I love that these shorst stay put during my runs. I don't have to pull or fidget with anything. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight. The extra length is nice. Hemline hits my figer tips when I hold my arms down to my side. I want another pair! :-)

              I ran a race in these shorts and they were super comfortable, and didn't ride up. This will make training for my half marathon during the summer a lot more comfortable.

                    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!
