I've been looking for super stretchy unlined shorts with pockets for our new quarantine reality. These totally fit the bill. A few specific details:
- The stretch, combined with the shorter inseam gives you total freedom of movement. I use them for peloton rides, light yoga, and a lot of sitting around working from home. No complaints.
- Fit is true to size. I have skinny legs and they feel fine. If you have treetrunk legs maybe consider sizing up, the stretch and structured waistband mean that they won't be falling off of you if you do decide to do so. However I do think if you have a small waist relative to your legs you could get away with normal sizing. They are a really middle of the road cut.
- Waistband is structured and 'tall', for lack of a better word, compared to other athletic pants. It's almost a sweatpant style waistband vs. a normal pair of athletic shorts. Assuming this stems from these shorts being the cut-off version of their long pants. I don't know if it's better or worse, it's just different. It doesn't fold over itself like some thinner standard athletic shorts' waistband does. It's comfortable for a day of wear. I'd be curious how they would do on a long flight, but who flies in shorts?
- Construction is solid. They don't feel as bulletproof as say, my nike phenom running pants, but they feel less likely to pill up than my dirt cheap adidas climalite shorts. Pockets are a good depth but I'd appreciate sturdy zippers in any shorts like these. The light weight and stretch always makes me nervous that the shorts will ride up on my leg while sitting and something will fall out.
Overall for the value I think they are a great buy. Totally recommend.
