    Great shorts

    My fiance loved the shorts! He said they were so comfortable and already wants another pair. As well, great customer service, since I bought the wrong size at first. Definitely will be buying another pair of these shorts.

    Almost perfect

    These running shorts are nearly perfect: has actual side pockets, a breathable waistband, breathable liner, lightweight. The single biggest flaw is that the material for the breathable waistband is a rough mesh material, which doesn't feel nice against the skin. The waistband can also chafe if you wear any waist running belts, or if you wear these shorts to do floor workouts like sit-ups and crunches. Please fix this one flaw!

    Mostly great

    Very comfortable and wearable. A small lanyard for the security pocket zipper would be a nice touch. Made my own, but still, for the price...

    Great shorts, but drawstring is too short!

    I would rate then 5 stars, but the drawstring is too short, I'm definitely going to lose it =/
