Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Over alpine switchbacks and under redwood canopies, wherever spectacular trails lead, the Striders follow. Our Strider Pro Shorts carry what you need for a full day of mountain running, thanks to four overlapping, stretchy-mesh back hip pockets (two on each side). An additional card-sized, stretchy center-back pocket closes securely with a zipper. The pockets lie flat and won't flap when empty, but expand generously to hold everything from energy gels to a Houdini(R) Jacket-and they're now more durable, stretchier and larger capacity. A fast-drying 100% polyester micro dobby forms the body while the side panels (now on outer thighs only) use an updated, more breathable, 100% polyester mesh. Side splits promote airflow and the open-knit 100% polyester crepe liner (with Polygiene(R) permanent odor control) now dries faster, weighs less and breathes more freely. Brushed elastic lines the improved lower-bulk waistband and the sturdy drawcord now exits externally for enhanced comfort. With a reflective logo on the left hem, a locker loop for hang drying and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. 5" inseam with 2" split.
