Running Kilts Running Kilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, freedom. I am a nature and wildlife photographer and am out in the mountains or desert at least once a week.

I wear running kilts on trails with hikers and tourists, using gas stations, stores, go to restaurants, etc. No one has noticed,… Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider Pro Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice running shorts with multiple pockets. When Patagonia first came out with the Strider Pro I was really excited as this was exactly what I was looking for in a running short for a long day in the mountains—that is until I saw the inseam—5", sorry that's just too short for my liking. It took a few years, but they now offer the Strider Pro in 7" inseam and I jumped. The shorts are very comfortable (multiple 20+ mile days with them); I was definitely a little iffy when I saw the liner—a long… Full review

Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 Full Length Tights

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Technical tights that improve alignment for increased performance. A valuable tool that can be used for training, racing, or injury rehabilitation. When I first received the Opedix KNEE-Tec 2.0 tights I was not sure what to make of them. Opedix has utilized years of scientific research in the biomechanical movement of the human body when designing their performance wear. In order to achieve what Opedix calls Kinetic Health, they have designed their tights with what they call "Torque Reform Technology"… Full review

MyPakage Pro Series 2-in-1

rated 5 of 5 stars Pro series long underwear and athletic shorts in one package. The unique MyPakage 3 dimensional pouch protects your precious parts. Unless you have worn MyPakage underwear, you are really missing a great experience. Utilizing their 3-dimensional keyhole technology pouch that surrounds your package, they give you the best feeling underwear on the planet. There is no more adjusting your package because the pouch keeps everything nicely tucked away and not in constant contact with your legs. Forget… Full review

prAna Men's Mojo Short

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable, versatile, light, dries fast, well made. The short is very simple, which I find to be a good thing.  One of the best buys I have made.  I use these every day in the summer. I climb with them as the elastic band is non constrictive.  Sometimes I run with them.  They have two front pockets and a back one.  They are also comfortable to wear over tights if climbing in winter.  They dry fast, but are non adjustable.  I have had them for years and they show no signs of wear.  Full review

Pearl Izumi Pursuit 7" Shorts

rated 4 of 5 stars Stretchable, breathable, transfer dry shorts are great for running, hiking, or the gym. Supportive inner liner for comfort. Whether you are running, hiking, or just working out in the gym you can't beat the comfort of Pearl Izumi Pursuit shorts. Available in 3-, 5-, and 7-inch inseam lengths, Pursuit Shorts offer a lot of comfort in a lightweight package. Constructed from polyester and elastane they have just the right amount of stretch while providing excellent breathability and the ability to… Full review

The North Face Class V Trunk

rated 5 of 5 stars I own four pairs of these shorts. I'm a big fan. These shorts fit true to size and have a nice built-in liner. It's nice and comfortable, unlike the liners of shorts from some other brands that I've worn. The shorts rest a couple of inches above the knee, and they are comfortable when moving. They work well in activities ranging from running to swimming. A drawstring helps keep the shorts tight in the water. The shorts dry pretty quickly—maybe 15 minutes in the sun or 30-45 outside of the sun. Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider Pro Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light but protective short that gets out of the way, yet lets you carry tons of stuff. Fit I will say it up front, I love the Strider Pro shorts. When trail running or hiking up steep hills I love the fit of them. The 5" inseam means they do not pull on your quads when going up steep terrain. They have a split on the side to give you extra freedom of movement while covering you up well enough. For me a 5" inseam is perfect. The waistband is a good elastic, but also has a lace that you can tie in… Full review
