Tough time finding running shorts that don't ride up. I'm 5'2 and about 138lb, and have 'strong' thighs :) and these work perfectly. I can actually focus on running! They are super comfy and I've bought a 2nd pair already. Size medium works great for me.
I bought these for coaching as my usual running shorts are pretty short. I was very surprised to discover how extremely lightweight and non-restrictive these shorts are. Add to that the awesome waistband and I really love these! When I run I hate to have shorts grabbing the front of my legs, so I go short, but these don't bother me at all! They have two front pockets which may be handy to some. I'm not a pocket person but they aren't bulky and don't get in the way. These shorts are amazing, and perfect for a modicum of modesty. If you want a little more thigh coverage but still need a comfortable fit and lots of leg movement, I highly recommend these for anything from standing around coaching to ultra distance running.
I am 54 and love being active, and I love that these shorts are a little longer. The pockets are really nice with plenty of room for my phone. I do all kinds of exercising and hiking in these shorts plus running! They're great!!
I'm a solid 8, but often size up in running shorts and found that was the case with these. The mediums were a little too snug in the hips so I went with the large. I love the length! I got these for my first half marathon coming up.
Awesome shorts. I run in Las Vegas and was looking for a little bit longer short for my long training runs. These shorts have become my "go-to" short for long runs and even summer races. The length looks nice and the extra-light-weight fabric prevents chafing and just feels good. I'm getting ready to order a second pair!
I fast walk and like a little longer short. Looked everywhere and couldn't find what I was looking for. These fit perfectly and are comfortable. Not too long or to short. I am 5 foot 3, weigh 120 and bought the small. As soon as I got my first pair I bought a second.
I love the length of these shorts. I've never been a short shorts girl and it's nice to have a longer pair that isn't a compression short since I don't like tight clothes either! They are pretty good about not riding up in the thighs, but they do ride up a little when I wear my running belt. That's really the only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise I love love love them!
These shorts are AMAZING!!!! I ordered a second pair almost immediately because I loved them so much. I've recently worn them running errands, for a half marathon, stand-up paddleboarding, as a cover-up at the beach, and of course normal training runs. The length is perfect. They're not your typical short running shorts. I feel very comfortable with this length and haven't experienced any chafing. I love the mesh briefs and overall fit (not too loose, not too tight). Way to go Brooks! HOWEVER, I ordered these same shirts in black but found the fit too tight, so I ordered a size up that still didn't fit right. Turns out the shorts I ordered (and liked) were made in Vietnam. The black shorts (that didn't fit) were made in the Phillippines. I hope Brooks will work on a more consistent fit no matter where the shorts are made.
Nice short, good quality construction and fabric, comfortable for summer running. I'm 5'6", 165 lbs, and wear a size L in the 7" Chaser. Midrise fit. Suggested tweaks if Brooks is open to the feedback is that the inseam could be longer (8 inches), and the waist band (in the current fabric) could be 4 inches wide instead of 3 inches. Nice vertical pockets, but not really useful. Maybe they could be dispensed with, and a zipper pocket in the back waistband could be designed instead. As a 60-somerthing runner training for my 3rd marathon, and running 4-5 times per week, I'm hard pressed to find shorts that aren't too short. I would recommend this product to my demographic, with the caveats above.
I really liked the feel of these shorts. They are comfortable, I have worn them for a short run and just to run around town. They did ride up for me a little bit, but it was only a short run, so still to see what will happen on a longer run. I would love to see these have a drawstring. When I put my phone in the pocket while doing errands, I felt like the shorts were being pulled down by the weight. Overall, I really did like these shorts. Just to give a reference, I am 5'8" and 205 and I bought the XXL.
I bought these shorts because they are longer length. They are perfect for running. They don't ride up at all and are very soft. I had no issues with them during my races. I highly recommend them. I got a medium (5'4 and 140).
Just got these and am so in love with them, I just ordered a second pair. It's so hard to find longer athletic shorts for those of us whose thighs like to touch, but these are the perfect length without looking like bermudas. Love them so much, I've been wearing them even when not running. The only thing I would change is the pockets...for a smaller person, the positioning is probably perfect and they might sit perfectly flat, but on me, they seem oddly placed and tend to bunch up (as pockets do) as I move. But that wasn't enough to keep me from ordering another pair!
For over 10 years I have been looking for shorts that don't ride up while running. I have tried a million different pair and have spent so much money returning them! I FINALLY FOUND THEM here and bought 3 pair! These shorts are ultra comfy and don't ride up at all! I'm still getting used to the built in mesh undies(I'd rather do without) but that's my only complaint and it's a mild one. Try them, you will absolutely love them! I also ride my bike and hike in them, too! A major huge score for me!!! I almost cried after my first run in them, I was beyond ecstatic! :)
I bought these in hopes they'd carry me thru my first half marathon as I always have bad luck with shorts riding up because I have thick thighs. Well they did awesome! They rode up a little but that's what happens with thick thighs and 13.1 miles. But the built in undies were great for no chaffing and the looseness of them great to move around/run in. I'll definitely be purchasing a second pair. Only thing I didn't care for were the pockets. I just won't use them with running but these are so cute I'd wear them around for casual wear too. Maybe in the future add a small pocket in the waistline for us runners. Overall very satisfied!
I walk rather than run. This is the first time I've bought "running shorts" and I wish I'd done so sooner. These shorts are perfect for our hot muggy weather: the panty means no cotton underwear to get wet with sweat. The length covers the cellulite. I usually have a problem with shorts riding up as I walk but these don't. Definitely getting a second pair.
I love the longer length of these shorts for running and for casual wear. I am 50+ and not skinny. These shorts are super comfortable for running and cover enough without looking like granny pants. The material is lightweight and cool and the pockets are handy for car keys, etc. I am 5'6" and weigh 158 lbs and bought these in size L.
