    I'm a gastric bypass patient. 2 years post-surgery. My first 90 pounds came off pretty quick thanks to the surgery but I never reached my goal of 110 pounds so I took up running a year ago and real serious in the last 6 months. Running has allowed me to lose an additional 25 pounds in the last 3 months. When I got serious about my running I went to a local running store (Rush Running) and got a pair of Brooks Ghost 6. I had been running with Nike Air 4.0 off the shelf (Terrible). What a difference. Amazing! So when I started looking for new running shorts I stuck with Brooks. I now have 4 pair and they are perfect. The 3.5 shorts are too short for me and I hate the 7 inchers at my knees. 5 Inch length for me. I have tried the 2 in 1 shorts and I'm not a fan of any brand. Brooks are lightweight, true to size and very comfy. The latest I ordered on sale. I would order Brooks no matter the price but a bargain was nice.

    I was excited to try these shorts. Great material, design, and fabric. I have one issue - the fabric bunches in the front, especially on the upper stride. While I'm not sure of the design solution, I would have liked a longer side vent as I feel some restriction.

        These shorts are extremely comfortable on the inside which is important, very light and comfortable and very high quality fabric which dries very quick and they look great too. I wear them around town as well as at the gym while using the treadmill or hitting the weights, NO complaints

          Comments about 5" Essential Run Short:

          I run 3-4 times weekly both outdoors and on an indoor track, mainly to stay in shape for cycling. These shorts are perfect for running. They are very light and well-vented. These shorts offer wonderful freedom of movement and when rinsed or washed...dry very quickly. The Essential Run Short is more of a competition length...so would not wear them as casual shorts. I cannot think of a better short for avid runners and cannot think of anything I do not like about these shorts. I have only had them several weeks so cannot accurately comment on durability.

            Great fit for all weather running. The pocket is OK for a gel but side pockets would be nice.

              I got these two weeks ago, and have been out on long runs with them twice so far (12 mi, and 20 mi). They were really comfortable and lightweight, no complaints yet.
