I have to say where have you been all my running life!! This was a bit of a revelation when I got these, such a simple and practical solution to most of the issues we have on longer runs in a great looking and moving short. I did think after getting them, why has no one else done this yet? When you start looking at gels, phone and even silly things like tissues you have to start to think about storage. For me, I hate carrying things so up until now I have had to use a belt or bag but both become annoying.
The versatility of this short is fantastic, I used these shorts on the great north run and most of my long training runs. I can get my phone in the rear zip pocket and then the gels into the 4 mesh pockets on the rear and this really created a simple system that worked for me. I do have to say it has 2 elasticated ‘gel’ loops but I found that gels slip out of these.
The shorts themselves feel great. They are soft have a great stretch so you will love the feel when you are running. The shorts I have don’t have the lycra short sewn in but there is this option too, I personally like to be able to mix and match so it is great that you get the option.
These have become the pair of shorts that I use on races or longer runs as a first choice and I truly think that the features on this short will become standard on other shorts pretty soon!
