Love these shorts for lounging

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These shorts are super comfy and great for lounging around, or doing some yoga. I did think they run a tiny bit bigger then the rest of the mojo shorts line. The fabric of these shorts is super comfy, I don't think the Chakaras are as versatile as the mojo pros. That doesn't mean they are any less of a great pair of shorts though. I think the main issue I have is I wish they would fit like the standard mojo shorts then I would rated have 5 stars without a doubt.

Stretchy and comfortable

I find these fit a little bigger than I expected, but otherwise they have become some of my favorite yoga shorts.

These shorts are perfect!!

    First off I love the material of these shorts. They are comfy but don't look like your typical sweat shorts. I use them for everything. 10/10!!

    These run a little bit looser/larger than the standard Mojo short and I wish they were the same fit. Otherwise, I absolutely love them. I mostly use them for yoga and bouldering at the gym(don't really like them with a harness on because of the fit) or lounging around my apartment. The material is great and they are just what I was looking for.

    Nice, not super durable

    I've had these shorts for more than a year now. They're great for bouldering at the gym—stretchy and comfortable.

    Unlike the other reviews, I've had no problems with the wasteband. I wear 32" waste in most brands and bought medium. The waste is not tight but I'm also not concerned about the shorts falling down.

    There are two minor things I don't like about the shorts. First, the material hasn't held up all that well. There are no holes or tearing or anything, but after one year, the material has aged quite a bit and doesn't look or feel as nice. In case you're curious, I machine wash them and air dry.

    The other slight negative is the lack of zipper pocket. I like to keep my key in my pocket when I climb. The back velcro pocket is sufficient for this but not as secure as the zipper that some other shorts have.

    So overall, I like the shorts, but I'm probably going to try out the Prana Stretch Zion for my next pair.

    A little larger than expected

    Great shorts! Lightweight and roomy so not to hot for even sweaty yoga. Third pair of these and the sizing seems to have changed. Only 3 stars since these medium are large in the waist band for me (32)and my previous pairs of mediums fit much more true to size. I will have the waistband taken in. Please go back to the previous material or sizing.

    I am a long time lover of the original Mojo shorts. They are my go-to workout and climbing shorts, so when I saw a stretch version I decided to give them a try. They are super comfortable and have a nice stretch, however the waist band is just not the same as the Mojo. This band is much looser and seems to stretch out more after continuous use. Also the pockets are noticeably shallower than the Mojo, and I don't trust putting my phone in them while working out. If those things were different these shorts would be perfect.
