Recent Running Bottom Reviews

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

Patagonia Nine Trails Skirt

rated 4 of 5 stars A quality garment suitable for multiple uses, particularly watersports. The undershorts have a permanent anti-microbial treatment that really does keep odors at bay. If already accustomed to wearing skimpy garments for workouts, the Nine Trails skirt will be a cute and welcome addition to your wardrobe. The short skirt does turn heads (since it's not always obvious that the black undershorts accompany it), so it's not for those lacking a healthy dose of self-confidence. On the other hand, it also… Full review

Columbia Whidbey II Water Short

rated 4 of 5 stars The Columbia Whidbey II shorts are a fantastic pair of shorts that are quite versatile. Whether you are hiking, swimming, or playing a sport, these shorts will keep you going and keep you cool! I bought these shorts this past spring and have worn them A LOT this spring and summer! These shorts are a well-fitting and relaxed pair of shorts with an elastic waist and built-in belt. You can keep them comfortably fitting or cinch them down if the trail gets rugged or you need to dive into a swimming… Full review

Salomon Men's EXO Motion Short

rated 4 of 5 stars Great pair of shorts for running or even swimming. These are the most comfortable pair of shorts that I've ever worn for running on the trails. So light it's incredible and well designed with the pockets for gels and keys. I highly recommend getting a pair of these. Full review

Patagonia Women's Baggies Shorts

rated 5 of 5 stars These are the perfect pants for a day on the trails. I bought a pair of these to wear on one of my backpacking trips. They were a bit pricey, but so worth the price, because it was about the only shorts I wore. They are so comfortable and you don't have to worry about getting them wet because they dry pretty quick. I love these shorts!! Full review

Patagonia Men's Baggies Shorts

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are great swim shorts. They look great and they can also be worn as regular shorts. I love my baggies. I have 4 pairs and wear them daily. They are great casual shorts and come in so many different colors. I also use them when I swim because of the convenience of them. The only issue I have with them is they do have a netting in them, but I just cut that out so I could wear underwear and be more comfortable. Full review

Salomon Women's Momentum II Tight

rated 5 of 5 stars My favorite winter running tights. I have two pair and may purchase another. Love the double layer at the knees and the length! Several things make these my go-to winter favorites: I LOVE the double layer at the knees. It's surprising how the extra layer really helps to keep those knees warm (especially on a cold day) seems like I'm not as stiff starting out when it's really cold because my knees are already warm. Very smart thinking of Salomon designers. Thank goodness for the extra length! Nothing… Full review

Patagonia Men's Strider Pro Short

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The first running shorts I've owned in a long, long time that don't stink after 10 minutes of use. They're cool, comfortable, and the pockets on the sides and back are great. First, the fit.... when I ordered these shorts from Patagonia Germany, I took a shot in the dark and ordered Large as that's what I normally wear but it's always hard to tell in American sizing. In any case, they fit great! I'm primarily an endurance mountain biker, therefore I have big legs and a rather muscular butt. Often,… Full review
