Loved the shorts as soon as I tried them on. I am 5'10 and weigh more than I like(210 lbs). I usually don't run in shorts due to not having the legs I would like, but I wasn't working out like I needed to because running tights were too hot and other longer shorts I tried kept bunching up between my legs. I walked/ran 5 miles in these shorts and fell in love. The only reason I did not immediately purchase another pair is I do not want to buy another XL. I will reward myself with a size Large as I meet my weight loss goals.

I am a loyalist to the Infiniti shorts, but was lured in by the bright colors offered in these shorts. They are cute and the 5" inseam length is great for days when you're feeling a little more modesty than your typical running short will allow for. The fit and look is a bit more like an old school soccer short, longer and baggier than most running shorts. The size also seemed to run big.

Overall, these shorts seemed less durable and well made than the Infiniti or Epiphany shorts I've worn in the past, probably reflecting the difference in price. The fabric of the shorts and liner is thinner. Sweat is more visible on these shorts than on other Brooks shorts I wear. They are really comfortable and I like the alternative to a "short short" some days, but I wouldn't wear these for long runs where I know I'd be sweating a lot in them. However, they're cute and I'll keep wearing them for shorter runs and cooler days.

    Comments about Versatile 5" Woven Short:

    These are the ONLY shorts this 50 years and counting runner wears from 5K to marathon. I NEVER have to worry that my caboose is creeping out and never have to adjust the panty. They are stylish AND wardrobe-failure proof! I am 5'4", 121 lbs and the Small fits perfectly. The 5" length is sweet perfection! My 3" shorts looked great on my 20-something frame, but at 50, not so much! I would recommend these to my runner friends in a heartbeat!

      Comments about Versatile 5" Woven Short:

      The shorts have a snug lining that prevents ride-up, but also seems a bit tight. I'm a standard M but would have ordered an L had I tried these on beforehand. That's just preference though, because I don't like wearing tight clothing. I do use these for running since I purchased them and don't notice any discomfort while excersising... Materials feel fine, doesn't appear cheaply made. So overall good value for the price.

      5' 9" weight 150 the shorts are too big in the waist and the waist band needs more elastic more like a certain competitor but of all 5inch shorts these are currently about the best...when jogging they ride up a bit where thighs meet

            I wear these shorts while running and they are very comfortable, light weight, and quick dry. I like the built-in underwear and the zip pocket in the back to store something small. I especially like the length because I am 5'9" and like to have my thighs covered.

                I am 58 yrs old and felt my thighs could use more coverage than what the 3 1/2 inch inseam running shorts were giving me. The inner brief fits perfectly and I will probably order more in different colors.

                  Comments about Versatile 5" Woven Short:

                  These shorts have changed my run. The more I workout the bigger my thighs get. I was starting to have issues with my run due to my touching thighs. All the running shorts are 3 1/2", with a saggy crouch. Ahh, frustrating! When I read the reviews on these shorts, I was skeptical, could it be true. I wore them for the first time yesterday and LOVED them. I just ordered 3 more. My run has been saved. Thank you Brooks for catering to womens needs.
