Nice shorts. I'm a bigger than average runner so super skinny short shorts don't work for me. These are long enough for good coverage and they're not too tight thru the butt and hips. Also, love the really lightweight fabric.

    Comments about Pacer Short II:

    I love these shorts; they're my new go-to running shorts! They do have a 5" inseam, so if you like your shorts short, these probably won't work for you. They're perfect for me, they feel great hanging out or on a run, and they're very flattering. The construction feels durable, and the materials feel high-quality. I may need to buy a second pair!

            I searched and searched for longer running shorts that gave me range of motion but looked great, these hit the mark. Will buy another pair :)

              Oh man. These are my favorite running shorts I have ever owned. Put them on for the first time and ran 20 miles of trails. Felt like I wasn't wearing anything! I've had tons of problems with shorts riding up in between the legs, and/or with chaffing. I've now run probably 100+ miles in these babies and have had no problem. I just bought 2 more pair, something I never do. Insanely comfortable and soft. I'm in love.

                Comments about Pacer Short II:

                These are the best shorts for thunder thighs hands down!!! I've tried several Nike, Adidas, and C9 Target shorts, including the ones with mesh on top and compression short sewn in, but they all rode up inbetween my thighs or chaffed or were too hot with all the layers.

                These don't do any of that, plus they have pockets!!! I live in Kansas, the land of humidity, and I can attest that these wick sweat away and don't chafe. Loved how they didn't ride up in the middle even on long runs. I'm 5'2", 145 lbs, but wear size 10/12 jeans because of my butt and thighs (I do a lot of weightlifting). I haven't weightlifted in them, mostly b/c when I did that with my other shorts it just tore the inseams apart from lunging and squatting. And I love these shorts so much I don't want to do that to them!

                The price is so worth it. I used to try to go cheap on workout clothes but I've learned there's no substitute for finding something that fits and functions really well. Plus, if you take care of your shorts, they'll last quite awhile (i.e. don't put them on high in dryer, use sports detergent, etc)

                    Great shorts, a little longer than my other running shorts but the length was not a problem on my run. I had free movement and very comfortable.

                        I found a pair of these on sale at a local store. I wore them to Jazzercise, came home, and dug the tag out of the trash to order more. I LOVE THESE SHORTS! They feel as if you are wearing nothing at all. Not tight, not baggy, perfect length, sit below the belly button. A more perfect short has not been made.

                        I wish they were available in more colors.

                          I own this shorts predecessor, they're now a little over two years old and still in great shape. They were my go to race shorts, daily run shorts, I love them, but I recently started running more regularly and needed more shorts, so I bought these. They are a little longer than the orginal which is really nice. Great length, don't ride up, don't chafe. Comfy waistband, fabric feels great. I don't think I will bother looking for anything else, I'll just buy a ton of these.
