    These have been my go to shorts since they first came on the market. Very lightweight, comfortable fit and with a good running length. I wear them three or four times a week and in every race. I've never found better.

    Comments about Mens adidas Response 5" Lined Shorts:

    Good shorts-- I sweat a lot and they dry quickly. I have muscular thighs and they get a little restrictive when I'm stretching, but are good during a run. There's a zip pocket in the back which is GREAT. unfortunately, the pocket is mesh like the brief liner so my keys always get stuck in the pocket.

              it is hard to find shorts with an inseam that fits my smaller height (5'7") most shorts are knee length or longer. these are the right length without being too long or too short. Very comfortable and dry very quickly

                I love these shorts. They are very comfortable and light. They seem to dry quickly and are roomy enough without being baggy in the butt and legs. I have had to buy large shorts in the past because the elastic in the waist tightens up too much after washing. I was able to go with the medium in these shorts and the waist remained true to size even after repeated washings.

                  This was an excellent value and cost significantly less than at the vendor outlet store. It has a good sized zippered pocket. The length is great: Not too short, Not too long.
                  I would highly recommend.

                      The back/right zipper positioning is what got me to buy these. Back/center zippers get in the way of racebelt packs that typically go in the small of your back. Also these shorts are perfect length and excellent for full marathon distance.

                        I run 60-80 miles a weeks during normal training. This is my favortie pair of shorts. They have enough of an inseam so you don't look like you're wearing "ranger panties" but not too long so you look like a basketball player just released from practice. Two thumbs up...

                          I bought this pair of shorts as a Deal the Day. I used them to run the Paris Marathon this year, in combination with a pair of UnderArmor compression shorts. I could not be happier: very lightweight, the pocket at the back was perfect for a couple of GUs.

                            Good fit - not too tight and not too loose. I generally prefer 7 inch running shorts, but these 5 inch shorts work well. Only suggestion is to move the zippered pocket from the right side to the middle of the waist so it is centered. Nice shorts.
