I'd buy it again

I bought a pair on sale and I'm actually pretty thrilled with them. I've been looking for a pair of running shorts that will allow me to carry gum, but not get all 'gummy' from sweat. These do the job. Athleta discontinued the Ready, Set, Run shorts with pockets on both sides. What a bummer... I wish this had a back pocket for gu or a phone, but for now, it'll work.

Love these shorts

I purchased the 3" chaser shorts in 2016 and went to buy my second pair in 2018. They're a touch smaller than my first pair and I don't like how they moved the pocket and removed one completely. Having said that, I still love the shorts. They're comfortable, they stay put (no chafing!), and great quality. I would definitely recommend these and will be buying again.

Perfect for hot summer runs

Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I wish there was a zipper pocket on the back to hold a key. The sweat resistant pocket holds it just fine though. However I usually use that pocket for a gu

These shorts are VERY comfortable. I've worn them for multi-hour runs in all training conditions, including ridiculous humidity and downpours, with no chafing problems. The little pocket in the right front of the waistband is a good size for holding multiple gels or shot block packets. If you want to carry a phone in the pocket, you may want to size down because there is no drawstring and the weight of a phone might pull down the waistband. The pocket does not have a zipper or velcro at the top, but my car key has stayed put so far. I do wish that there was an additional, small secured key pocket somewhere....maybe add one in the center back of the waistband? Regardless, am loving these shorts and have purchased more! Read More
