    Great Shorts!

    These shorts have been great to run in. I am not a huge fan of the color I choose, but I plan on getting another pair anyway.

    Badass training short

    I originally got these for running, and completed a trail marathon in them as well. They're effective, feather light, and allow for maximum mobility. I ended buying a few more for strength training at the gym too - while you can wear them and just rely on the liner, they fit comfortably with a pair of underwear/compression shorts on underneath as well!

    love the perforation

    Was a little worried the waistband would be itchy but it's really not at all. Also holds in place well. The perforation is a nice touch and keeps it extremely light. Great for long runs...

    Perfect Running Shorts

    I love these shorts. They are ideal for not running and the gym. Great pockets that keep everything in place without having to fuss to retrieve things on the run.
