Ok shorts for a large mammal

Like the subject says, I'm a large mammal at about 235 lbs, hence the 2x size shorts. What I like... I like room and comfort with my running shorts. These have a nice length that I like, not too short or too long. The boxer brief liner is new for me. I found out that I really liked it. For consideration... I'm unsure about the built in phone pocket. It's a great idea, but even my…

Like the subject says, I'm a large mammal at about 235 lbs, hence the 2x size shorts. What I like... I like room and comfort with my running shorts. These have a nice length that I like, not too short or too long. The boxer brief liner is new for me. I found out that I really liked it. For consideration... I'm unsure about the built in phone pocket. It's a great idea, but even my iPhone 6s was a little big for it and I didn't feel comfortable just leaving it in there. Plus it moved a little when I was running so I didn't want to take a chance on it chaffing my leg. There are no hand size pockets, which when I thought about it, I didn't really use anyway. There are two small ID card/car fob size pockets on the sides and a zip up pocket in the back. Just something to think about. What I didn't like... The waist line. I couldn't cinch the waist enough to feel comfortable. There was too much fabric and that made them feel boxy, if that makes sense. Overall, I bought two pairs and I will still run in them. Read More

Good and Bad

Great for running ... bad for sit-ups. The zipper in the back digs into your skin doing sit-ups with these shorts.

Super Comfy!!

These things are awesome, perfect weight perfect length. Only thing that kept me from 5 stars is the zippered pocket is just a smidge small for current phones (I've got an iPhone XR). I've got to remove the phone from it's fairly slim case to wedge it in the pocket. Then again...who needs a phone?

Cell Pocket is a bit jiggly.

I am a woman, who purchased these running shorts, mainly because I didn't care for the women styles, and was a fan of the inside liner on the men's. The main reason I went with these was for the cell phone pocket on the side. I hate holding my phone while I run, and I'm not a fan those armband thingies. Anyways, the pocket holds the phone great! But there is a bit too much jostling of the phone…

I am a woman, who purchased these running shorts, mainly because I didn't care for the women styles, and was a fan of the inside liner on the men's. The main reason I went with these was for the cell phone pocket on the side. I hate holding my phone while I run, and I'm not a fan those armband thingies. Anyways, the pocket holds the phone great! But there is a bit too much jostling of the phone when I run, that I don't feel comfortable running with it in the liner sider pocket. I suppose could change how I run to make it feel less jostly, but that would probably look weird and feel horrible. So I am back to carrying my phone. I loved my last pair of Brooks running shorts (I don't know the model of the shorts because it's been a few years and everything has faded to nothing, but the side pocket held the phone so well....I wish I could find a pair of shorts that could do that again...les sigh). The search continues. But I will will wear these until I find those magical running shorts that can comfortably hold my phone while I run. Read More
