Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

I have a men's and a women's pair of these. I like the men's pair better even though I'm a gal. I like the fit. The legs are not as wide.

I don't know if they still make these anymore, but I LOVE mine. Over the 7 years that I've had them I've worn them several times a week. My regular runs have been from 4 to 10 miles. I've run 1/2 and full marathons in them and have never chafed.

The only time I've not worn them was when I was pregnant, and my butt got too big to look nice in them. Otherwise they were fine to pull under my belly and still run.

The Sage Burner Shorts by Patagonia are their airiest, quickest-to-dry running shorts. As light on the environment as the body, low-rise Sage Burners cool the single-track journey. Made from silky 100% recycled polyester, with a variable-density polyester mesh back panel that has Patagonia's Capilene performance. Two mesh lumbar pockets keep gel packs in place. A parallel 3" inseam prevents chafing.

- Massey's Outfitters refers to the women's version

Sage Burners are made from 100% recycled polyester that's as light on the environment as it is on the body. Dry and airy cool, they are perfect for those long midsummer ridge traverses or hot single-track runs through desert sage. Variable-density polyester mesh (with Capilene performance) in back disperses heat and moisture. Two rear lumbar pockets store gel packs securely without added bulk. An elasticized waist with drawcord and a Capilene polyester crepe liner keep you comfortable and cool hours into it. The parallel 3 inseam provides a chafeless fit.
