I was looking for a running shorts and was hoping to find a 2-1 type. This short fit just right for me and it light with 2.5 pockets and a phone X (however, you have to take your out of your case since it super snug.) there is a small side pocket with zipper for i guess keys and a energy bar holder in the back but not sure how the two band in the back would hold it in.
Please Peak Velocity; make the phone holder pocket 20% bigger. It would be an awesome running short if you do.
These shorts are a great alternative to the more expensive shorts from companies like Lululemon. The material and build isn't up to par with the more expensive pairs, but it is a welcome tradeoff for the price. The only issues I can across were the string broke the first time I wore them, and the liner rides up a bit during workouts. Would still recommend.
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.
When I run, I like to have... "things" held in place so there isn't a bunch of bouncing and whatnot. If I want that with these shorts, I'll need to dawn a pair of briefs underneath because they are cut with a bit of room in there, which partly defeats the whole technical-fabric-wicking-moisture-away thing. Now, if you like having that extra breathing room, then this will be a plus for you, but I'm not fond of it, so it's a negative for me. Preferences, preferences! The under-layer of the shorts extend down just above my mid thigh and are tight enough to count as compression but without being tight enough to cause problems. I'm still getting used to this--my other running shorts don't come down the leg like this, although, I do have to say that this is much better when you sit down--no worries about flashing any more than is intended. As for the pockets... well, I personally don't use pockets while I run so I can't comment on how well these do for that purpose.
This lightweight shorts are good for a quick run. I'm not sure what the "2-in-1" means - maybe the inner part is supposed to replace an underwear?? The inner part isn't long or snug like biking shorts, though not as small like a brief.
They're on the baggy side and a bit longer than similar shorts. Made of 100% polyester, the fabric is very light. The drawstring is on the inside of the waist, next to the skin. I like these.
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 kind of cool looking. The fit is about what I was expecting and they are not too tight. Pockets are decently sized. I like the quick-dry fabric. The design elements are somewhat unique and cool looking. Overall I'm happy with the fit and quality.
