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.
Peak velocity is an amazon private brand. As I hadn’t tried out the apparel in retail outlets I was apprehensive about the overall fit and quality. I shouldn’t have worked. The shorts were very high quality, almost technical features like safe, deep side pockets, inner pockets, inner thigh support and all. The overall feel is very good too. I go out for long runs in this short and don’t feel chaffed. If I were to nitpick, I would ask for better waist draw strings / lace. They aren’t bad but could be better.
I have been running for years and these shorts have been so far great. These shorts have compression tights inside, some people do not like that but it help me as it prevents the thighs from rubbing each other. Very good material and it has been holding well so far. The one I got in black is a little off color, I wish it were darker so it would combine easier with my running T-shirts. The side pockets are Ok but I do not use them, hard to run with something there. There is a small pocket for the phone but unless you have a small size like iPhone 5S or something like that, it will not fit well. I put my driver’s license and a credit card there. That is something that can be fix on the next generation! Get your next size up if you have muscular thighs...
Really nice pair of shorts for the price. I bought a size large 9” and they fit great. Similarly quality to other pairs I have spent more money on. Wish there were more color options as I would buy multiple pairs.
I typically wear standard workout shorts, but recently discovered these running shorts that include the compression liner.
These are awesome because I no longer have to think about how they're riding up my leg when doing any type of inverted exercise. They also wick away sweat and don't start looking like you wet yourself like some shorts do during a hard workout. :)
In addition, these have great pockets and are comfortable.
The listing a tiny bit misleading as the “thigh” pocket for your phone is just the standard pocket. But otherwise these are great. Small secured pocket for cards/ID/keys. A longer shallow pocket along the waist in the back for gels (though shallow enough I’d be a little worried they’d fall out. Super lightweight, enough stretch to move with you, looks nice. Great shorts for running/exercise.
