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.

    Comments about Sherpa 6" Short:

    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.

      I like the length but when I'm running they tend to bunch up and then start riding up. Not really comfortable.

          First Pair of "running shorts" I actually love. Usually they ride up and are not comfortable. These were recommended to me and I am "SOLD" Love them.

          I ordered a small based on the size chart, but the shorts feel a size too big. It was not the fit I expected.
