The first time I wore these shorts I fell in love…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $54

The first time I wore these shorts I fell in love with them. Now I don't like any of my other running shorts. They are so comfortable because of the knit waistband. I often have trouble with chafing because my skin is very sensitive. There is no chafing with these shorts.

There is one zip pocket on the side where I usually put my I-pod, and three hidden pockets in the back for gels or chews for long runs. The fabric of the shorts is light, dries quickly and a bit stretchy, so there is no binding.

I highly recommend these running shorts.
