Ended up getting two pairs of these, love the longer length for distance running. The Velcro key pocket is a great feature too. Would definitely recommend these for anyone looking for a go-running short.
"Addicted to Patagonia and the Nine Trails short..."
Okay. I am 46 years old. 46. I love my Nike Tempos, but the inseam is 3" or so and that at my age is starting to feel a bit short. My daughters are in Tempos, the style is all the rage at their age. I started thinking, should we be wearing the same style. I looked and looked and spent way too much money on sub-par products and could not part with my Tempos. Then, I found these shorts. They are AMAZING. MORE COMFY. MORE COVERAGE. LESS ELASTIC. MORE POCKETS (don't get too excited they are still small). BEST OF ALL -- the inseam is 5". They do NOT look long, but they are longer. So awesome for all day wear. Match the Patagonia tops perfectly. LOVE THEM. I am gushing b/c this short is SO worth it!!!
