Tempo Short

The La Sportiva Men's Tempo Short keeps your runs upbeat with its ultralight, breathable, stretchy exterior fabric. The inner brief is laser-cut mesh to optimize ventilation as well as chafe-free fabric. La Sportiva treated the fabric with Polygiene for odor control. The wide waistband has four pockets for massive storage options, and there's a fifth zippered pocket at the rear to store valuables.

  • Running short optimizes with stretchy, breathable fabric
  • Laser-cut inner brief ensures chafe-free, ventilated comfort
  • Polygiene anti-odor and anti-bacterial freshness
  • Wide waistband with four storage pockets and zippered rear pocket

Strange fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

Got these shorts on sale and while I do like a lot about them, I’m a bit torn as to the overall fit and functionality. The outer material is fantastic, stretchy and light/breathable. The wide waste band took me a little getting used to, but it's not uncomfortable and I could see how functional it would be on longer runs - you can really cram some gear in there.... The real issue is the liner - it's just strange; really boxy, excess fabric, loose cuffs. For me the liner is rather ill-fitting and uncomfortable during early miles, but I will say that when I've worn the shorts over longer runs, I have kinda forgotten about it and finished the run without chafing or any other issues.
