Light, Fast, and Small
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Large
I'm a huge fan of 2 in 1running shorts and when they have lots of pockets I'm typically sold. The pockets on these shorts are just the right size and placement for all the things I want to carry on a typical hour or two training run. The shorts also sit higher due to the extra-wide waistband.
The inner liner is incredibly light to the point that I can barely feel it once I get going yet secure and supportive. The material is not what I was expecting, it is a very light almost knit nylon much like a thicker stocking, unlike most of my other shorts which typically are more spandex like.
The outer shorts run very small. I have pretty thick thighs and these shorts are a bit snug on the bottom hem. So far I have noticed them while I've been running. If it gets annoying I might cut and sew a small notch in the hem for a bit more breathing room.
My other shorts in my weekly rotation are:
The North Face Flight Better Than Naked Long Haul Short
Ultimate Direction Hydro Short
New Balance 2 in 1
Nike dri-FIT 2 in 1
So far these are in the top two of my favorites behind my North Face shorts.
