As with the t-shirt these shorts cost a lot more money than I would normally pay for some shorts (£60) but as with the T-shirt you can tell the quality. The shorts have a flat front which I was slightly unsure about but when I put them on they were very comfortable, well fitting and felt lightweight and easy to move in. This feeling never changed when I went out and run in them. They felt comfortable, I had no chaffing and felt no restriction in movement. They felt cool and comfortable even on hot and long runs.
My only gripe was the size of the pockets. I tend to run with my phone for safety and music and prefer to carry this in my shorts but the pockets were not big enough. The pockets are big enough for key or credit card but nothing bigger. They would work well as a race short due to the comfort of the inner, lightweight nature and freedom of movement as we don’t tend to carry as much in races.
