To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Good shorts for a good price, but they have a design flaw. After the 3rd or 4th wear - the drawstring broke. The draw string is really made of up 2 seperate strings that are sewn in the back versus a single pull through string that could be replaces easily.
These shorts are phenomenal. They’re extremely comfortable to workout in. I went to go buy more and amazon raised the price, so sadly I won’t be getting anymore of them. Lower the price and I’ll buy numerous pairs.
There's one downside to these shorts- they can really hold a sweaty gym smell. I think the fabric holds smell better than some other fabrics. I just notice that I have problems with these in particular, and always add in an extra detergent pack and a scent booster pack when I am doing laundry. Otherwise, the smell can survive a wash/dry cycle.
They fit perfectly though and my son has enjoyed wearing them very often. They have a little leg pocket that holds his MP3 player, and another pocket that holds his locker key securely so he doesn't have to pin it anywhere. They fit about mid-thigh and are more modest than a lot of shorts- great for doing leg presses, thigh abductor and other machines where shorts can make him feel a bit self conscious. They are well made- much better than most shorts I see. I like that the label isn't so prominent that it makes him not want to wear them. He doesn't like 'advertising for other people' so I try to avoid big logos. This one is quite discreet.
My husband needs comfortable shorts for working out. These are his first multi-layered shorts. They fit well and appear to be well made. He finds them quite comfortable, and they seem to chafe less than his regular exercise shorts.
These are not baggy like traditional shorts - they are a snugger, athletic fit. There's reflective stripes, the only tag pulls right out (nice!) and there's a nice elastic waist. There's an inner, snug, liner (boxer brief style) that breathes nicely and holds everything in place while you jog.
