These shorts are amazing! My thighs are BFFs, and they like to be as close as possible to each other. This means I get the very unflattering inner short leg ride. Which also means the awkward pulling the shorts down from my upper inner thighs while trying to continue running and being super casual. Well, with these bad boys, they don't ride as much, and if they do I'm still covered, and best yet...NO CHAFING! I love the pocket on the brief, it's a great size to fit my keys when I'm running comfortably and not having to feel it, to my phone and cards when I'm running an errand. The pockets on the top band are a little small I'm not sure what I'll actually put in them, but everything I carry fits in the side pocket. Another great factor is that I can stretch in public without feeling overly exposed when I sit with my legs spread apart or bend over. Oh, and they are super flattering. My thighs are not of the small variety and these shorts don't look like they're struggling the fit. The shorts are also super super light that you barely even feel them there. Love them!

I was looking for a new pair of shorts that are the 2-1 variety. I have a pair by Nike and Adidas that I love, but wanted to try something new. I liked the design of the wide waistband and how the interior shorts are made to stay down. The styling and thought was very nice on these shorts.

I unfortunately had to return them though as they did not fit me properly. These do run large. I usually wear a large in both nike and adidas, but these larges were way too big and were falling off of me. I would recommend ordering a size down.

      Comments about Glycerin 2-in-1 3.5" Short:

      Seriously, you must bring these back. Now the only 2-in-1 shorts you offer are 6-inches long. I'm short enough as it is and 6-inch shorts are ridiculous on me and anyone under the age of 50 (and most over the age of 50). These were the perfect length and with the compression shorts underneath, they were modest, too. I swear, why must you always discontinue the items I loved best? Please, bring these back!

            These shorts fit nicely and are appropriate length for running without showing too much (I'm 48, not 20 any more...) I was surprised how well the inner boy short fits and I like the grippy hem in them, they stay put. Other boy short styles usually ride up on me. I'm 5'8" and 132 lbs and Medium fits well.

                Lightweight, sporty, flattering cut (even on those of us who do not look like elite athletes), comfortable, wide waistband. I like that the inner short was not tight or loose. I don't really like the silicone grippers and didn't think the short needed them, but I also don't really mind them. The side pocket is nice- wish I had one on each side. A back or front zippered pocket on the waistband would have been great (something to keep keys pressed more tightly to the body so they don't jingle around). The short underneath comes in great contrasting colors and I can't help but think that if they were a few inches longer that it would add a nice pop of color. I already own 3 pairs and if that design changed I would certainly buy 3 more! :)

                  I wanted to try something new, I'm a stocky person and I was hoping that these would help with chaffing, but they are a little short so the end right where my legs rub together. They are comfortable for shorter runs, but for longer runs in the hot weather here they did not prevent chaffing. I have gotten many complements on the color and the style.

                        I absolutely love these 2-in-1 shorts. They give a bit more coverage when in odd positions at the gym. They are comfy, light weight, cute and just about perfect. I was not sure about the odd color combos from this season, but I do like the different colored short liners. Purple outer, and hot pink liner...a winner because I have items to match. But I am not sure if everyone would agree. You should disclose the liner color info just in case someone hates pink or another color.

                            The shorts are exactly what I wanted. The slip-grip on the boy short lining keeps everything in place. I have some belly fat that usually drags shorts up, making the leg opening bunch up. This does not happen in these shorts. The outer shell drapes nicely, so there's no VPL from the liner. And when I sweat, they don't look soaked. The hidden pocket is also fantastic. Deep enough to eliminate concerns about my key bouncing out.

                              This is my favorite running short BECAUSE it has a liner inside AND it
                              is not too long. ALSO the waistband is flat so it is super comfy. I hope Brooks continuous to make this short because I LOOOOOOVE it so much. I run half marathons and marathons and I've never had a problem with chafing.

                                Comments about Glycerin 2-in-1 3.5" Short:

                                I wear these on runs and to the gym. I run 25 miles per week and hit the gym a couple times a week to for weights or the elliptical. I have worn these on three runs and I love them. I am obsessed with pockets on my running shorts and these have 3 great pockets, with the biggest one on the internal boyshort. This giant pocket rocks and fits an iPhone. I like that the internal pocket is more secure and the shorts don't move too much if I have the phone in there.

                                The internal shorts are not too binding and they are breathable. If I want to do floor exercises and stretch I feel like they proivde extra coverage. The wide waistband is very comfortable. They don't ride up or shift as I run and I love the material.

                                These shorts are true to size. I am 5'7 and 124 and the small fits snugly. Not too tight, but definitely snugly. I could have probably gotten the medium and been happy. If you are between sizes, like a longer length or prefer a less snug fit while you run, I would size up.
